Why is France the tourist hot-spot of the world?


Year 3 have had another very exciting week learning about France. We have written our own adventure stories and have been thoroughly impressed with the language and writing features Year 3 are using! We've taken a 'trip' to France and have written adverts persuading people to visit France. 

We have a busy week next week! Week commencing 20th March is science week; please remember to bring your homework in for Friday 24th March, our living museum (23rd March) and Red Nose Day (24th March). 

Best wishes,

The Year 3 Team 

Homework & Spellings


Mindfulness Body Scan

If your child would like to take part in a mindfulness exercise at home (the body scan) please click on the link below





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.
