Dear Parents,

As we head into the summer term, I am pleased to say that we have lots of exciting activities planned.


Our History theme for the term is the Romans. During this topic we will be looking at who the Romans were; how they managed to conquer most of Europe; their invasion of Britain and how their period of history has influenced us today. 


Much of our English work will link in with our topic work. During this term, each child will produce a wide range of writing, to include a newspaper report, persuasive leaflet, story, information text and a recount.

We will continue with skill based lessons for grammar and spelling work, giving the children the tools they need to become confident writers. We are really encouraging the children to try really hard with their letter formation and handwriting.

We will continue to practise our reading skills in class focusing particularly on our inference skills and using the text to answer questions.


We will begin the term by looking at time, learning to read both analogue and digital clocks and calculating time differences using time tables. We will continue to develop both written and mental methods for the four operations and practise the children’s knowledge of their 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables. We will also spend time looking at a variety of mathematical skills using fractions.


This term we will be looking at light, its properties and how it travels. We will investigate how shadows are made and look into how light is made up of a spectrum of different colours.


We will continue to develop our skills in programming and presentations, linking our work to other areas of our learning. Please remind your child that they can access Education City from at home, using their login details. This website is packed with age appropriate activities for your child.


Our PE lessons will continue to be taught alongside a specialist PE teacher on a Tuesday morning. As before, elements of these lessons are then further developed during our Thursday afternoon PE lesson. We will also be taking the children swimming weekly for the 1st half term on Monday afternoons. Please ensure your child has appropriate kit in school and that pumps/trainers fit. Indoor kit should consist of shorts and t shirt. Long trousers, sweat shirts and trainers are only for outdoor lessons.

If you have any questions, please call in to speak to any member of the year 3 team and we will do our best to help.
