Year 3 Blog - 20th October 2022

Wow, what a great half term the children have had in year 3! They have amazed us with all their hard work and efforts. It was wonderful meeting you all at parents evening to discuss how your child has settled and the progress they have made. Working together is vitally important, please contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

The children have written some super descriptions of the ‘Tin Forest’ this week, learning how to write in paragraphs and to reflect on their own and others work to improve it.

In Maths, we been recapping on our number bonds knowledge to help us work out 'subtracting 1s across 10s', ensuring we have a secure knowledge of place value within subtraction. We have been solving problems and proving how we know the answer using number facts.  We will continue to practise our reasoning skills, by proving how we know the answer


*Homework is set on Edshed/TT rockstars every Thursday. This will include maths and phonics games. If you have any problems accessing this please let us know. The children are also excited as we have set an extra special homework ‘The Stone Age’ Quiz for the half term. After half term, spelling will be set on a Monday.

*TT rockstars please focus on 4 timetables.

* Forest School is on a Wednesday afternoon, this will be on a rotation basis. To ensure quality sessions, half the class will take part one half-term and then will swap over with the other half. If for any reason your child misses a Forest School session for example; due to the weather or staff sickness then sessions will be made up later in the year. Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing and footwear, to enjoy all activities on offer. (Waterproofs and welly boots)

*Book change is on a Thursday, please ensure your child reads at home and note it in their reading diary, so we know to change their book. Children will be given one book at their reading level, in which they are expected to reread to build on fluency, comprehension and inferencing skills. If your children would like an extra challenge please encourage them to write a book review about the book they are reading, to share with the class. Attached Blog 7th October. They might also like to read a book from our year 3 book list or visit the local library, please see attached.

*After Half term, library books will be changed on a Tuesday, please ensure your child brings their book in with them.

P.E. Kits will be sent home over half term, please check, wash and return after half term.

As always if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us on: and  To help us ensure there is consistency please contact both Emma and I.
