What would you do if you fell down the rabbit hole?


Wow what an exciting start to the final half term! We have created our own mini buildings, from Oxford, using lolly sticks and plenty of sticky tape, then tried to draw a map of Oxfordshire with instructions from our team. We've read and enjoyed the story of Alice in Wonderland and mapped this story to help us to remember and retell it.

We're looking forward to our final term in Year 3 and what a busy yet exciting term we have! Many fun activities are planned for this term, and as teachers, we cannot wait to teach these lessons. We are especially looking forward to our Year 3 trip on Tuesday 12th June into Oxford to find out more about our topic this term.

Homework & Spellings



Please practise angles, types of lines, measuring and recognising shapes with your child. Any addition/subtraction and times table revision is always helpful too. 


In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! Each Wednesday, your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday. 


Writing (We love writing!)

Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text.

BIG Write and the BIG Talk!

Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
