Our journey so far:




Please help your child learn the 3, 4 and 8 times table off by heart and practice counting in 4s, 8s, 50s and 100s, forwards and backwards.

In Autumn, our topic is ancient Egypt. 

Our Science topics are forces and magnets and animals including humans.



The children will have a weekly spelling test on a Friday. Please ensure your child brings their brown spelling book into school on this day. Your child will practice their spellings in school, but please ensure they practice further at home. Here are some strategies to help learn new spellings.




Our class story this half term is Cat Tales by Linda Newbery. 



We change reading books after your child has read their book and taken their Accelerated Reader quiz. Please ensure that you have left a comment in the reading record book, each time your child reads at home. Your child needs to bring in their reading book and reading record everyday so they can read with an adult in school. Please read as much as possible at home with your child.  Ask them questions about their book to check their understanding and discuss any unknown vocabulary.

Here are 50 recommended books for Year 3.
