Year 3 Summer Term Newsletter


Wow! What a fantastic start to the new term! This week, we have begun our creative writing topic based on the book George's Marvellous Medicine and written disgusting descriptions of Grandma. In topic, we have created blood (eeew!) and learnt about the 7 life processes.

We are continuing our rocks and soils science topic for two more weeks and could use your help; please bring in a small bag of soil (a sandwich bag would be perfect) for Tuesday 1st May. 

We are looking forward to another exciting term of learning, all about the human body!

Homework & Spellings



We are learning about statistics and charts in class, but please carry on learning your times tables and addition/subtraction facts as well as telling the time (these are all really important skills to keep practising). 


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.
