An overview of the week ahead in Year 3

  • Lots of hard workers in Year 3 this week!

Information and Reminders

  • We have started to wear our summer uniform. Please make sure your child wears the correct uniform to school, particularly the correct footwear. They must look smart. We will continue to monitor this closely.
  • Please make sure you also let the class teacher know if your child’s end of day arrangements have been changed so there is no confusion.
  • Please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school.
  • Reading challenge – You need to sign and date your child’s learning journal 3 times in one week after you have heard them read then they will receive a Dojo point. If children are not reading regularly at home then they will attend lunchtime reading club on a Friday. We hope for your support!
  • There is still time to make an appointment for next week’s Academic Review Evenings. If you have any problems with the online booking system, please contact your child’s class teacher.

We will continue to read and learn to retell the story of The Firework Makers Daughter. We will be planning and writing our own adventure story. We will be focusing on characters and setting and then evaluating it.



Our next topic is ‘Calculating fractions and decimals’. We will recognise that tenths arise from dividing a number or object into ten equal parts. We will learn to write tenths as a fraction and as a decimal and to count up and down in tenths.



As Scientists, we will prepare and plan our own investigations. We will find out what materials are magnetic. We will make an information poster all about electrical items that use electricity as heat. We will learn the potential dangers of electricity. We will become safety inspectors and solve dangerous scenarios.



We will look at how data is passed on the internet and through computer networks.
