Year 3

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to the new year. Happy New Year to you all. Please note that PE is now on Tuesday afternoon.

Our topic this term is AUSTRALIA and we have lots of exciting learning about the country, its people, its places and also about plant life.





* Ensure you have your reading book in school every day along with your reading log!

* Bring a healthy snack for break time.

* Make sure you have a water bottle in school as we have no water fountain upstairs. Remember to take it home for a clean every day.

* Full school uniform needs to be worn to school every day. This includes black school shoes and jumpers or cardigans.

Children will be allowed to take jumpers and cardigans off if they get hot, but they are needed in school daily.

It is impossible to find owners of jumpers or cardigans without names as they are all identical so please make sure all uniform is labelled.


PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. Children must have their kits in school.

PE kit is shorts, T-shirt and plimsolls that fit.

Any child with ear-rings must either remove them before the lesson or take them out at home on that morning.

During the colder weather we will do PE outside, so children may have jogging bottoms and sweatshirts too. Please ensure everything is named as it makes it much easier to sort lost kit.


Our topic this term is........







We will be making beach buggies in DT and painting in the style of the Aborigines.


We will be learning about flowering plants in science and finding out about the conditions they need to grow into healthy plants..



We will be reading lots of Aborigine Myths and writing our own version of a myth in English.




If you have any questions, feel free to catch me on the playground or make an appointment to see me via the school office.


Mrs T Mbonye.

Homework for this half-term.



The activities in the homework set can be completed in any order. Once a task has been completed, children can hand their book in to be marked. Children who complete all tasks will be awarded a certificate.

Reading is the most important activity to do at home every night and I will encourage both parents and children to make a note in their reading log once a week. I will also do this in school when I read with the children.

Spellings will be given out at the beginning of term and, when a child shows they have learned them, they will be awarded with a sticker from the deputy head Ms Meager. They will then get a new set to learn.

Children in Year 3 will be expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables this term.

Any help you give your child in work at home will really help their progress.

Again, ask me if you have any questions or worries.
