Home Learning


'Learner of the week' in year 3 is Tia! 


Congratulations Tia!! I was so impressed with the enthusiasm you showed coming to school with your arm in a sling! It did not stop you wanting to come and participate in all the activities we had planned. I am also impressed with all the home learning work you did! Brilliant. Keep up the good work!








                      Context for Learning                 


Let’s tiptoe through the tulips together and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the garden.


This half term, we’ll find out how to look after plants and appreciate the flowers. We’ll write an information book about plants, follow instructions, enjoy the story of 'The secret Garden' and write stories of our own. Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant and create our own ‘planting and growing’ action rhyme. Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented products. We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational drawings and press real flowers to use in collages. At the end of our project, we will have become plant experts! We’ll create a presentation about plants, share the information books that we have made and design a fantasy garden.

Summer Term 2

The secret garden

Story book version of the Secret Garden

Week commencing 13/7/20


This week is mainly the transition work which you can give to Miss Bowen in September. The Literacy and Maths work is to keep you busy over the summer holidays. I have really loved having you all this year and am deeply proud of the way you have all adapted to the recent times. I will miss you so much but will pop my head in now and again to see how you are doing! Have the best summer holidays. See you in September!

Counting on a number stick - Year 3

                               Christian Values                                                    

Our school Christian Value for this term is Respect

We are learning about the importance of treating others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things they say. We will also be thinking about how we should treat the things that belong to us and to other people respectfully.


Think and talk about:

• Think of some practical ways that you show respect to each other in your family.
• Often we show respect to someone by the way we speak to them. What does this mean in practice?
• Do you treat one another’s possessions with respect? What does this mean in practice?


Important dates


Please see the document below with dates for the year.  I have highlighted important dates for Year 3.



New spelling patterns will be practised in class each week but we will no longer be having a weekly spelling test, we will be

looking for pupils using these spelling patterns in their daily work across the curriculum. 




Reading books should be read every evening and returned to school every morning as the children may have an opportunity to

read their book in class either by themselves or to an adult. Please complete the reading record in your child's book bag each

time you listen to them read. All books are sent home on Fridays and must be returned on Mondays.

Please see the link below for the Oxford Owl website.  The children can access ebooks and parents can access resources to help with reading at home.

P.E is on a Friday afternoon and will be taken by Mr Smith.  Your child will need black shorts, house colour or white t-shirt and trainers, labelled clearly with their name. They may also wear black jogging bottoms and a school hoodie for outside activities.

Snack money is £1.50 per week, and should be paid via ParentPay before 8am on Monday mornings. We are a healthy eating

school and children can only eat fresh fruit or fresh vegetables for their snack. We provide a wide variety of choice including

apples, oranges, bananas, melon, pineapple, plums, peaches and carrots sticks when in season. If you prefer, you may send in

fresh fruit or fresh vegetables from home for their snack.


Children may bring a bottle of water to school to drink. We are happy to refill their bottles for them during the day.




Dinner money


As a cashless school, dinner money is to be paid in advance via ParentPay.
