This term we will be focusing on flowering and non-flowering plants. We will be looking closely at different types of plants and their structure. We will be exploring the benefits of different types of plants for ourselves and for our natural environment. The children will be doing this through digital media including research, garden design as well as animation. There will be many science experiments, planting and exploring. Year 3 will also be exploring poetry and will be creating and reciting our own pice of poetry about flowers. Keep an eye on our Twitter for exciting updates.

Coming Soon


Each week, children will be asked to complete either a piece of numeracy or literacy based homework which will alternate from week to week. There will also be a termly homework grid based on our topic. Children may do as many homework tasks as they like over the course of the term. 

 Children are allowed to complete their homework in whichever format they wish to choose. E.g hwb, PowerPoint, on paper, videos etc. 


Weekly spellings will also be taught in class and given to the children to practise at home.

Dosbarth Usk spend half an hour each day concentrating on spellings. We are learning the rules of spelling. This week we are focusing on:






Languagenut is a wonderful online tool where children can access resources to support the development of their new language. Each child will have their own log in details where they can gain points for activities completed. Languagenut will also give you the correct pronunciation of words and phrases.​​​​​​

WOW Tracker


As a school we are working hard to reduce our carbon footprint as part of our Eco schools awards. We record how we travel to school each day and gain badges and awards every month if we have met our target. Help us to travel safer and greener by walking, cycling or scooting to school! You could always park and stride or catch a bus.

101 Experiences


As a school we have created a list of 101 experiences we believe all children should have the opportunity to explore. These are linked to the 4 purposes of the Curriculum for Wales. Once you have completed an experience, send a photo to Mrs Kizman who will upload the experience to Seesaw. When you collect 5 of more experiences from each purpose you will be celebrated in our VIP assembly. Happy exploring!
