Congratulations. Our reflective learners this week are:







Week Beginning 16th September


We are looking at the features of our Tigress text and how information is given in non-fiction books. We will be discussing the features of non-fiction texts, including how generalisers are used.



We will continue to look at place value, adding on in ones, tens and hundred. We will be counting in 4’s, 8’s and 50’s and 100’s. We will be re-capping the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.



We are finishing our book The Diary of a Killer Cat. We will be summarising and thinking about vocabulary that the author has used.



Thank you for sending in PE kits and wellies. Spare carrier bags for muddy wellies and trainers are advised. If you have any spare carrier bags that we can keep in school, please send them in. (Spare socks are also a good idea.)

Reading records need to be in school daily. Please record any reading your child completes art home.

Children can bring a snack of fruit for break time. Please do not send in cereal bars, biscuits or cakes.

PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Children bring PE kit in a bag and change at school.

Spelling tests will be on Thursdays and new words will be sent home on Fridays.








Welcome to Year 3!


It has been a great start and all the children have come into school with great attitudes, ready for learning. I am sure the children will tell you about our 'Predator Attack' and searching for the clues that it left behind.



In Year 3, children bring a PE kit in a separate bag (clearly named please), to keep in school all week. Thank you if you have already sent this in. Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.


Children will need wellington boots in school for when we visit the woodlands and allotment. This will be on Mondays.


Please make sure all jumpers and cardigans are named.


Spellings- Spellings test will be each Thursday. New spellings are given on Fridays.


Reading records need to be in school everyday. Children can change their books when they have finished them. Please record the reading that they complete at home. There are guidelines in the centre of the reading record for you to refer to and the spelling list for Year 3 and 4. 


Please ask if you have any questions. We are available for brief chats at the beginning and end of the day. If you would like to meet for longer, please make an appointment for after school. 


Week Beginning 9th September


We will be learning facts about tigers through a story about a tigress. We will be looking at how sentences are written in reports and gather facts to write our own reports.



We are learning about the value of digits in numbers, counting on and back in 1's, 10's and 100's.



We will start our book- Diary of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine. We will make predictions and look at the vocabulary that the author has used.
