Summer Term 1
This term the children's topic is Ancient Greece and Greek mythology. We will be examining the history, mythical legends, art, architecture, thought and inventions from this fascinating period as well as using it to inspire our own myths, legends, play-scripts and artwork. Attached is the topic map and the homework grid for this term.
Maths and SPaG homework will continue to be given to the children throughout the term. Maths homework will predominantly be paper-based and given out on a weekly basis. The SPaG tests will be given when a new concept is taught although attack spellings are of course an on-going homework.
As always, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to come and see me.
It is vital that the children develop fast recall of their times tables to enable them to be competent mathematicians in various areas of maths - for example, fractions.
In Y3, we do a daily speed challenge and it has proven beneficial in developing the children's speedy recall of their times tables learnt so far. They need to be fluent in their 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s, 10s by the end of Y3.
This can easily be accessed at home via the following link:

Any additional practice at home will help them to learn these important number facts!
Happy New Year!
As you have probably gathered, Year 3’s topic is Harry Potter this term. Everyone is very excited and I hope that the children enjoy the topic. Please find attached a topic web and a homework grid. All homework completed will be proudly displayed in our classroom or on our special Harry Potter homework wall.
I will also be setting Spag.com tests and maths homework on Active Learn throughout the term. The children will have a week to complete these and have the option of completing the tasks in the ICT suite at lunch-time if they’re unable to access them at home.
If you have any questions or queries then please don’t hesitate to pop in at 8.45am or straight after school. If you require a longer conversation then please make an appointment at the school office.
