Year 3

Week beginning 1st March 2021

So the day is in sight, the day we all get to come back together! You have done it! You have successfully completed almost another term of home schooling! You have all been amazing and Mr Thomas and I are so grateful for all your hard work and support, thank you!

With this in mind we have a couple of important pieces of information for you to know so I thought I’d start with these.

  1. World Book Day – Thursday 4th March. This day will look slightly different to our current days but all the information you will need is on the timetable for that day so please watch out for that.
  2. World Book Day – Children are also being encouraged to dress up! The theme this year is…Books that make you LOL! So please feel free to dress up in something silly. It could be as simple as doing something crazy with your hair or you could wear your clothes back to front!
  3. World Book Day – There are also a number of events taking place across the week next week including the ‘Masked Reader’ and ‘Books at Bedtime’. Please keep an eye on the school Facebook page for all updates in relation to this.
  4. World Book Day – There is also a virtual fair taking place, again all details will be on the school Facebook page. As per normal, every child will receive their £1 book token.
  5. Friday 12th March is going to be Roman Day for Year 3! We are very lucky to be welcoming the Treehouse Theatre into school to run some small, social distanced workshops! For this day we are inviting all Year 3 children to come in to school dressed as Romans.

Project – ‘The Romans’


In English this week we are going to be very closely linking our learning with our history learning and our project, The Romans. The children will be writing their very own information books all about life in ancient Rome.

Although we won’t be continuing with our weekly spelling tests, please continue to practice the Year 3 words at home – Year 3 weekly spelling lists for 2020-2021

In Maths, we are continuing to look at measurement. The children we will be reminded of several different units of measure including metres, centimetres and millimetres.

Times Table Rockstars

All of the children have been sent home a username and password for Times Table Rockstars (TTRS). This is a fantastic website that we use throughout Key Stage 2 to help consolidate and continuously practice the children’s times tables. By the end of Year 2, children should be able to recall the 2, 5 and 10 tables and Year 3 the 3, 4 and 8’s. At the end of Year 4, all children nationally will complete a multiplication test up to 12×12 and these will be asked randomly so it is important they can recall them out of order.

Other curriculum news:

RE – Our focus this term is the Christian celebration of Easter and the significance of why it is celebrated.

Recommended books:

Please have a look at the link at books which are recommended for children within year 3.

Thank you for all your support,

Best wishes,

The Year 3 team.
