Year 3 2017 - 2018

Miss Griffiths

Mrs Gardiner


Wow - the start of another year already! Where does the time go? I hope you all had a relaxing summer holiday and are feeling ready for the start of the new school year. We are very fortunate in year 3 to be supported in class by the wonderful Mrs Gardiner on Monday and Tuesday mornings. Mr Curran and Mme Carter lead our learning in PE and French respectively on Wednesday afternoons.


Our Learning

Our topic for the Autumn term centres around Britain from the Stone Age, through the Bronze Age to the Iron Age. We will be thinking about the importance of these periods within British history and hopefully further our learning on an educational visit to a life-size Iron Age Celtic roundhouse at Burwardsley. Please see the topic web below for further information about our learning this term.

We like to see children reading at home as much as possible. Please keep a record of how often your child reads at home in their reading record which will be checked regularly to monitor their reading. Children have the opportunity to read to an adult in school during our guided reading sessions.

Spelling tests will be held weekly (on Fridays) to ensure all children are practising the spelling patterns for Year 3 age related expectation as these are both many and very specific. There is a copy of this half term's spelling list below.

Water bottles

Children learn best when they are well hydrated, so please could you ensure your child has a named water bottle in school everyday to be kept at the Hydration Station in the classroom. They will have opportunities to refill these at the water fountain throughout the day.


Please ensure your children has a full named PE kit in school everyday, suitable to the activites we will be doing - trainers are more suitable footwear for outdoor sessions than pumps and your child may wish to bring jogging bottoms and a jumper as the days get cooler.


I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Though I will be available for a short time at the beginning of the school day, after school offers more time for conversation so feel free to come and see me once all children have been dismissed.


Here’s to an enjoyable and productive first term!

Best wishes,

Miss Griffiths.
