A Message from Mr Wilson

Welcome to Year 3

We hope that you have all had a fantastic summer break. We are really looking forward to sharing your child's learning journey this year and getting to know everyone well.

I am Mr Wilson and I am the Year 3 teacher. Mrs Parker and Miss Hunt will be working with us in the lower juniors.

Thank you for your support, we are looking forward to a happy and productive year together! From Mr Wilson, Mrs Parker and Miss Hunt.

In Year 3 we are reading: The Witches by Roald Dahl

This half term we will be reading an adventure book about an action-hero called ‘Traction Man’. We will focus on describing characters, settings and writing our own exciting adventure story! 

Then, we will move onto non-chronological reports, linked to the children’s action-hero. We will look at how to create a report and a glossary for reference.

You can help your child by:

- Supporting them with their homework tasks.

- Helping them to learn multiplication & division facts, such as x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and x8 (Year 3 target)

- Supporting them in accessing Times Table Rock Stars as much as possible. Children will bring home login details for this website/app. Teacher set times tables will appear in the ‘Garage’ section.

Science: Magnets and Forces

History: Ancient Egypt

Art: Egyptian Art

RE: What do different people believe about God?

PSHE: HeartSmart

Computing: Coding

PE: Rugby and Hockey

Music: Let your spirit fly

French: Getting to know you.

Homework will be set for the half term based on our current theme: The Egyptians. There will be a variety of tasks to choose from, depending on your child’s interests.

Spellings are set on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. There will be opportunities to practise the spelling rule in school, but the children would benefit from time spent practising at home too.

Please remind your child to bring their reading book into school every day. After sharing reading books at home, please sign reading records. The children will read at school once a week. The majority of the children’s reading should be done at home as the books in Year 3 can be very long. If children are not reading at home, they will not be able to progress through the reading levels.

Useful Websites
