Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!



Key Information

PE this term will take place on Fridays afternoons.  Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit (including trainers) at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

Swimming will continue to take place on Tuesday mornings.

Our main topics for this half term are 'The Romans' (in History) and ‘Light' (in Science). We will also be carrying out work in English based on the theme 'Aliens'.  After half term our Science topic will be 'Plants' and we will be carrying out a local study of Towcester in Geography.  English work will be based on the theme 'Kings, Queens and Castles'.

Please consult our Spring 2018 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 



This term we are looking forward to a trip to Chedworth Roman Villa and a visit from a Roman soldier.  We will also be going on a walk around Towcester as part of our local study. 


Home Learning

Year 3 homework expectations are as follows:

Maths - Please refer to the Year 3 Home Learning sheet

Reading - Your child will read in a small guided reading group with a member of the Year 3 team once every week. At the end of this session they will be set some further reading to complete as homework and as they progress on to reading chapter books, they will also be set an additional task.

Spellings - Our weekly spelling lesson takes place on a Monday.  During this lesson the children will be tested on the words that they were given to learn the previous week and given new spellings to take home and learn.  

Creative Homework -This is to be based on our Science and Humanities topics (see above).
