Year 3

Welcome to the Spring term.

This term, our exciting new topic is ‘Inventors and Inventions’. We are so excited for activities we have planned for you.
This half term, we will be focusing on lots of Science and later in the term, we will continue learning history.
In English, we will be learning about warning stories, non- chronological reports and poems. In Maths, we will continue learning multiplication and division. 
We look forward to seeing you all.

THIS WEEK’S LEARNING: Week commencing 20 March 2023


This week, we will be reading the book ‘Stone Age, Bone Age’. We will use this book to support our writing in English. We have lots of exciting activities planned which will link to this book. We will be focusing on predictions, paragraphs and adverbials phrases.  


Over the next couple of weeks, we will be concentrating on Mass and Capacity. If your child would like to some additional work to complete at home, they could have a go at the Mass and Capacity WhiteRose booklet which was given out at parents’ evening. 

Time tables 

In year 2, your child should have learned their 2, 5 and 10 time tables. In year 3, we will be learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. It would be a great help if you could encourage your children to practise these at home.

Please can I encourage all children to read to an adult at least 3 times a week. Children are expected to record their reading in their reading diaries. It is important that an adult signs their diary once they have read. We encourage the children to write a comment about the book they are reading. Also, children have a chance to win a book voucher if they complete a book review. 


  • Practise your spellings 
  • Read at least x3 a week 
  • Complete the comprehension on page 12 


The year 3/4 spellings we are focusing on this week are: recent, regular, reign and remember. Please practise these at home. You will be tested on all the words on the Year 3/4 word list each half term. 

In the back of your child’s homework diary, they have written a list of KS1 spellings that they need to learn. Please ensure that your child practises these at home. 


Children have PE on Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure they have their PE kits for these days. Every Monday, the children will be playing tag rugby. Please can I ask that children have sensible clothing for outside as it is likely that the children will have their PE session on the field.  

We are very much looking forward to another fantastic term with you all. Have a great week.

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.
