This term will be very exciting and involve lots of hands on learning for the children. 


During the first half term we will be exploring the book ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes focussing on writing an approaching threat narrative and an explanation text. Next half term we shall be looking at ‘Fox’ by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks where we will be writing a fable narrative and a report. 


Please encourage your child to read for 15 minutes a night. Your child has a Reading Diary to record page numbers etc. and this can be signed by a parent /carer or a child on a daily basis and must be handed in to be checked. If you do not have time to read due to clubs etc please write this in the reading diary. Due to the current situation we will be sending reading diaries and books home on a Monday to be returned the following Friday. No reading books from school will be sent home over the weekend. Please try to continue reading books at home or from the library. 


The children will be covering a range of units from the maths national curriculum. This term we shall be looking at time, position and direction, mass, capacity and temperature. 


Science will be taught once a week. This term we will be looking at plants,rocks, soils and fossils. 


Art takes place once a week, this term we shall be looking at artwork inspired by Guiseppe Arcimboldo. 


This term we shall be looking at the journeys that food goes on before it gets to us and holidays and coasts. 


PE will be taught on a Wednesday morning and a Friday afternoon. Children will need the following kit: black shorts; green logo T-shirt; socks and spare socks, black joggers /tracksuit and jumper, black fleece or skins (ideal for winter) pumps or trainers, a carrier bag for wet clothing and bobbles (girls). All children must now have shin pads in their PE bags. 

We will be focussing on basketball and cricket this half term and athletics and dance next half term. 

PE bags need to be in school on Monday and sent home on Friday to be washed.


Music will be taught on a Tuesday morning.


Maths – 1 page of mental maths book per week. Please mark this together with your child. 

Topic – OPTIONAL activities will be set out in a grid for you to choose which ones (if any) you would like to complete. The return date for this will be written in the homework books. 

Spellings – spellings for this half term are stuck in the front of the spelling book. Tests will take place in the back of this book. Please keep the spelling book in your child’s book bag and return to school each Friday. Please practise these in whichever way works best for your child. 


Computing will be taught on a Wednesday morning and will cover producing, saving and retrieving work. 


German will be taught by Herr Jones from WHS (Year 3 only). 


In Class 3 your child will be expected to follow a set of class rules. 

Be a good listener to allow ourselves and others to learn.

Use our manners and treat others how we want to be treated.

Work quietly and do not disturb others.

Try new things, take risks and make mistakes.

Always be ready to learn, honest and helpful. 


If you have any questions then please send me an email.

Many thanks,
