Welcome to Year 3 we will be using this page to keep you up to date with your child's learning.

We plan to include information about what we will be learning, things you can do to support your child at home and any special events or activities that your child will be participating in.


Autumn 2

This term our topic is the Romans. This is a topic which the children get really excited to learn about. Below are some links to activities and videos which your child may enjoy. Towards the end of this term we will be organising a Roman Day where the children will be able to come to school dressed as Roman's and experience some of the Roman way of life! Look out for more information towards the end of term.


In Maths, the children will be continuing with addition and subtraction. They will build on their previous learning to add and subtract numbers with up to three digits. They will be using place value equipment and formal written methods.


Our text in English is, Escape From Pompeii by Christina Balit. The children will be learning a shortened version of the story which they will innovate to write their story. At the end of the unit the children will be applying what they have learnt to write their own adventure stories.


In Science, our topic is Forces and Magnets. The children will be exploring magnetic forces and magnetic poles. They will also be investigating friction on different surfaces and magnetic materials.




Week beginning 11th November - Anti-Bullying week

Next week as part of the PSHE curriculum we will be planning activities linked to this theme.

What you need!


Please bring in your own named water bottle each day. You will need to take your bottle home each evening to wash and refill it.


Remember to bring in your PE kit on a Monday and take it home to be washed on a Friday. Our indoor PE is on a Tuesday and outdoor PE is on a Wednesday.




Spellings - Lists are sent home to be learnt on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday.


Reading  - Aim to read for a short amount of time every evening. There is an opportunity to change books every day. Children are reminded to hand in books that require changing but it is their responsibility to do this regularly.

Encourage your child to read for pleasure too! We suggest you join Maidenhead library which is a fantastic resource for the children to access.


Maths - All children have a log-in for Times Tables Rockstars. Try to log on and practice times tables at least 3 times a week.
