Year 3 Autumn Term Newsletter

Would you liked to have lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age? 

Welcome to Year 3.

What another amazing week in Year 3! The children have wowed the teachers this week with their superb big writes about Stone Age Boy - everyone is using the new Year 3 skills so well and we're all very impressed! 

Year 3 have learnt about how life changed in the different Stone Age eras and even emptied a bin to understand how difficult it is to know whether information about the Stone Age is true; it was pretty gruesome! 

We have also spent some time using and improving our sketching skills to sketch Stone Age scenes.


We look forward to another great week of learning.  

Homework & Spellings




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.
