Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!



Key Information


PE this term will take place on Friday afternoons.  Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit 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.

This half term we will be completing our local study of Towcester in Geography, working on ‘Rocks’ in Science and carrying out work based on the theme 'Chocolate' in English. After half term our History topic will be ‘The Anglo-Saxons’, in Science we will be studying the work of famous scientists and inventors (including Marie Curie and William Smith) and in English our final theme for the year will be ‘Superheroes’.

Please consult our Summer 2017 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 




This term we will be going on a walk around Towcester as part of our local study (postponed from last half term) and we are looking forward to a visit from some Anglo-Saxons to help us with our learning in History.


Home Learning


Year 3 homework expectations are as follows:

Maths - Please refer to the Year 3 'Key Instant Recall Facts' 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 Thursday.  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).
