Year 3

Week beginning 2nd July

In Maths this week,

The children will be continuing our revision of fractions. This week we will be recapping how to add, subtract, order, compare and find equivalent fractions. We will also be looking at tenths as decimals and we will then apply this knowledge to reasoning and problem solving challenges.


Children are encouraged to work on their Maths Passports at home to help them refine their speed and fluency of mathematical facts.


In English this week,

In English we will be starting a 4 week unit on a significant author: Lewis Carroll. This week the children will be reading chapter 2 of Alice in Wonderland and exploring vocabulary used by Carroll. They will be applying comprehension skills by comparing Alice in Wonderland to Coraline, writing a setting description and researching more about Lewis Carroll.


We have been promoting reading at home – each class has a weekly reading challenge to encourage them to read to an adult at home.


May we remind you that we expect the children to be reading with an adult three times or more throughout the week. 




In IPC this week

Our IPC unit this half term is 'Bright Sparks!'


We will be constructing electrical circuits and looking at where and how electricity is used.


You can help your child... 

By listening to your child read, helping them to learn their weekly spellings and complete their learning logs. Please can you also make sure that the children’s school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled.


MyMaths: The children will be given personal log in details to access their learning online. They will have the chance to log on to MyMaths during their ICT lessons but please encourage them to complete some of the tasks at home.


Learning logs: Our new style of Learning Log has been sent home with the children this week. This is due to be handed in on Thursday. The children are to produce 1 page only.


Ideas for 'R' this week include:


*Roald Dahl








May we also remind you that we will be delivering our SRE (Sex & Relationship Education) from next week.

If you would like to discuss these sessions with a member of the year 3 team, please come and see us on the playground at the end of the day to make an appointment.
