Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 24.09.2018

English information:

This week, we will continue to plan and write our own version of ‘Nail Soup’. The children have an excellent understanding of the text and are now ready to creatively make it their own. We can’t wait to see what they produce!

In spelling, we will continue to explore prefixes and how they change the meaning of words. In particular, we will focus on dis- and anti-.

Maths information:

This week our maths lessons will follow a similar pattern when learning how to subtract two 3-digit numbers. The children will be taught initially how to use dienes to achieve this followed by pictorially representing the dienes in their books. Once the children have grasped this concept visually, we will move them on to the abstract method of column subtraction. To be successful with this method, the children will need to put their thieving hats on and be confident stealing numbers from other columns. Please feel free to ask your children to show you this method at home!

Times tables – We will now move onto learning our 4 times tables. Please continue to support this at home.

Food for Thought

This week our project learning will take an exotic turn where we will be learning about food from around the world. This week’s focus is on Mexico and therefore we will be given the opportunity to taste traditional Mexican delicacies as well as some Mexican art and craft.


Dates for your diary:

Paris Pizza Express Trip – Thursday 11th October

London Pizza Express Trip – Thursday 18th October

You will soon receive a letter about this trip, however if you are available to offer your help, please let us know.


PE – Our outdoor PE lessons will now take place at Kings Park on a Wednesday afternoon.

Our indoor PE day is on a Friday morning in the school hall.

We ask that you ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school at all times which is clearly labelled.

Snack – Now that the children have moved into Key Stage Two they will no longer be provided with a snack at break time. Please can you provide a healthy fruit or vegetable snack for your child to have mid-morning so that they can make it through until lunch. If your child is having a hot dinner provided by school at lunch time, they will also need a snack to be provided at break time.
