Welcome year 3
I hope you have all had a fantastic summer break. I am extremely excited for the year ahead, I know we will have a great year together.
Mr Brown and I are looking forward to seeing you back at school and getting to know each and every one of you.
This term, our topic is ‘Brilliant Buildings‘. I know you will have lots of fun during the stunning start this Friday.

THIS WEEK’S LEARNING: Week Commencing 25 September 2023

In English this week, the children will start to plan and write their own stories with a moral. I am very much looking forward to reading them. The grammar focus this week is adverbs, speech marks and expanded noun phrases.  

Over the next few weeks, we will be concentrating on place value, looking at numbers up to 1000. This week, will be focusing on comparing and ordering numbers to 1000. We will also continue to practise the place values hundred, tens and ones. I would encourage your children to practise looking at numbers up to 1000, allowing them to partition the number given. Please look at the model below which might be useful.  Y3 – Place value 

This week, we will be trialling our homework on google classroom. The children have their log in details in the front of their reading diaries. They have been practising using google classroom at school so I am hoping this will help them at home. We understand this is a new process and may take a few attempts to get used to it. However, if you have any questions at all, please just ask. If your child does not have access to a digital device, please let me know and I will print homework out for your child. Homework will be set on google classroom every Monday. Children have a week to submit their homework.  

Your child is expected to read at home at least three times a week. When they finish their reading book, it is important that they tell an adult so we can get their book changed as soon as possible. Reading records are checked twice a week.    

Every week, your child will be given four spellings from the year 3 and 4 spelling list. We ask that they practise learning these spellings at home as they will be tested on these words every half term. The spellings we are focusing on this week are arrive, believe, bicycle and breath.  
In addition to this, if your child still needs to learn their year 1 and 2 common exception words, it would be fantastic if you could support them with this at home.   

Children have PE on Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure they have their PE kits for these days.  
Have a fantastic week!  
Miss Taylor and Mr Brown

Please encourage your children to read at home and complete their reading diaries.

Pie Corbett’s Reading Spine is a core of books that create a living library inside a child’s mind. It is a store of classics and essential reads that help children engage at a deeper level and enter the world of the story.





By the end of Year 3, you are expected to know the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. It would be fantastic if you could practise recalling these at home.
