Year 3 - Cherry

Year 3 What are we learning this year?


Welcome To Our Year Three Class Page - Miss Connor



Welcome to Summer 2


Quite unbelievably we are already in the final half term of the year and the children are working very hard. We hope you and your families have enjoyed a lovely half-term break.  

This is a busy final term which includes multi-faith week and sports week. We also have the Spanish exchange happening in the first week back after half-term. Plus camping overnight at school.



We will do our best as staff to capture the children's amazing learning and achievements and share these with you via the school Twitter pages as well as updating you on key curriculum and timetable changes here on this class page.


The value for this half term is "love" and we will be encouraging the children to think about ways to show love and to think about how much they are loved.


Please note, children will need to bring their Swimming kit on Tuesdays (Swimming costume/trunks and a towel).  PE on Wednesdays will now be outdoor, children can wear navy, plain tracksuit bottoms and tops over their St John's blue tshirt.

Please find the information for our core subjects in Summer 2 below:


English:  Zeraffa Giraffa is the book that we will be covering in English. We will consolidate the units that we have covered so far this year and produce letters, diary entries, stories and non-chronological reports.


Maths:  This half term, we will be continuing the unit on Fractions. We will be also covering work on money, shape and statistics.


Religion:  World Faiths (Hinduism). Universal Church – Special Places


Science:  We will be continuing our work on the final Science topic of Forces and Magnets.


Humanities:  This half term we will continue the exciting History topic exploring ancient civilisations including the Ancient Sumer; The Indus Valley; Ancient Egypt and The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China.  Please note, we will focus mainly on the Ancient Egyptians.




Your child will come home each Friday with a colour-banded reading book.  These books can only be changed each Friday, however they can be kept longer than a week if necessary.


The children should also be now bringing home a library book (book of choice) which they have chosen to read for pleasure.  This book might not be pitched at your child's current reading age but the aim is to encourage the children to find enjoyment in reading through shared stories.  Please share the library book at home and even read to your child if necessary, so they can enjoy the story.  We aim to visit the library to change these books once a week.




In addition, you child will be set weekly spellings which will be assessed in a non-formal way at the end of each week.  The idea being that we expect to see correct spellings in children's work, rather than in an independent spelling test.


Times Tables:

The children now have logins for TT Rockstars which is very popular platform for practising times tables.  The logins were stuck into the front of the purple books last half term, please let us know if you need these sending home again. 


This website has great activities to help your child learn, practise and enjoy times table facts in a fun and engaging way.


This year, your child will be given a log in for Atom Prime which is an online platform for homework.  Once logged on, your child will find an English and maths task to have a go at.  We encourage the children to have a go independently as the program not only adapts to their answers (to make sure it's at the right level) but also provides feedback as to where they went wrong.   As soon as the login details have been set up, we will be in touch with further information on this aspect of homework.

PE Days


Our PE Days are Tuesday afternoon (swimming) and Wednesday afternoon (games).
