Year 3 Spring Term:

Dear Parents and carers,


This year seems to have flown by, and here we now are in the Summer term. There’s just one more term to go before their well deserved summer break and journey into Year 4, but until then, we have an action packed few months ahead, what with a Caerleon Roman Museum trip and all the general jollity the summer term brings. Also, may we take this opportunity to thank all the family  members who came to support the children at the church for their Easter service. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces in the crowd.



We will be starting with book called ’The Secret of Black Rock’ by Joe Todd-Stanton. There will be a continued focus on the basic skills of writing, handwriting and on broadening vocabulary across a range of writing genres.



This term, we will be reading the fantastic, ‘Varjak Paw’ by S.F  Said, a book taken from our Y3 recommended reads. We will study the book in our reading lessons, along with exploring other texts linked to our wider curriculum for our writing. Continuing from September, we are again asking the children to read five times at home. We ask for your support in this by logging these reads on Boom Reader. Our reading raffle continues so fingers crossed your child could be picked out next, remember every week that your child achieves their five reads at home will earn them a ticket in the raffle! It would be   fantastic if you could, whenever possible, discuss what they are reading with them. If you notice your child  hasn’t been changing their reading book or isn’t coming home with one, please email the class teacher so we can get this sorted quickly.


Other areas of the curriculum

This term, we will be looking at the Romans again in History. We will complete a D.T. project which the children will design, make and then evaluate later on in the term. We will be exploring our local area in Geography including working on our map skills in physical Geography and how our area has evolved for the growing population in human Geography. In Science, once finishing off our plant unit we will be focusing on our bodies and how our skeleton and muscles support our movement. 



Year 3 will continue to have PE on a Tuesday afternoon. Children should come to school in their PE kit instead of their school uniform. PE kit must consist of black shorts or black/ navy jogging bottoms, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. They should wear a plain black / navy   jumper if required. Please ensure that if your child has earrings, these should be removed at home before coming to school or tape should be provided to cover them.



PPA will still take place on Thursday afternoon. This term, 3L and 3C will need to come into school on this day in their PE kit.  3R will be swimming every Thursday, so they will need to come into school in their school uniform but bring their swimming kit.



Correct school uniform must be worn at all times, and all garments must be labelled with your child's name. The labelling of PE/swimming kits and bags would also be extremely beneficial! Please can we also remind you about your child’s hair accessories ensuring that they are inline with school expectations. Your child will be asked to remove them if they do not comply.


Caerleon Roman Museum Trip

A reminder that we will be going to the Caerleon Roman Museum on Friday 17th May 2024. This is now set up on ParentPay, any problems regarding payment, please contact the school office. Your child will shortly be coming home with an OV4 form to ensure we have up to date medical information in   preparation for our visit. Please complete and return to school as quickly as possible.


Many thanks,


The Year 3 Team
