Year 3

Welcome back, Year 3! We have a very exciting half-term planned with a school trip to Austerfield Study Centre to tie in with our continuing topic of the Stone Age. We will be completing work about the author Cressida Cowell and the story ‘How to Train your Dragon!’ We’re also looking forward to celebrating World Book Day and having a visit from Bethany Walker, the author of ‘Olly Brown, God of Hamsters’.

PE Information

This term, your child will be doing PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. Ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available for both days and please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks. These will be:

  • Reading at home (at least 4 or more times)
  • TT Rockstars
  • Spelling Shed


We will also be sending home arithmetic tests for your child to practise at home and speed reading to work on building fluency or a short comprehension task. These will be sent home fortnightly. 


We will be continuing with our topic about the Stone Age. This topic will run through all of our subjects from reading and writing, to history, geography and DT. Please see the curriculum web for more information.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the year 3 team.
