Year 3

Dear Parents / Carers,


Welcome back to the second half term of Autumn that will take us up to Christmas. 


Please can you support your child by encouraging them to practice spellings and times tables every day. A great way to do this is on spelling shed, Mymaths and TT Rockstars (all logins have been glued to the inside page of the homework diaries). 

Please ensure the handwriting sheet is in every Friday. Some children are still not doing this.


Next week's learning:

In Science we will be conducting field work based on different kinds of leaves in our changing world.


In English, we will be looking at non-chronological reports.


In Maths, we will be continuing the column addition topic involving carrying tens and hundreds. Then we will begin column addition.



In PSHE we will be learning about what makes a good friend.


On Friday, we will be testing the 2,3,5 and 10 x table (mixed). There are videos below to help.


The spellings for next week will be written in the children's homework diaries which come home every day and should be returned every day to school.

On Fridays the children will be tested on these spellings. The spelling list is below and has also been put onto spelling shed.

Handwriting sheets will be handed out on a Monday with the weeks spellings on. Please can these be completed and returned by Fridays from now on. This will help them learn their spellings as well as improve their handwriting.
















There is a homework grid below. The passwords for Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and My Maths have been given to each child in their homework diaries. 

We will also send home a book to do homework in, for example, practising spellings, times tables and for completing the more creative activities. Please only hand this book in when on the dates specified at the top of the homework grid. 


Speak to you soon,

Mrs Smithies and Mr Clarke
