We have spelling tests on a Monday and new spellings will be given out the same day for the following week.



Reading at home is invaluable in promoting progress across many curriculum areas including reading, spelling, grammar and writing. In Year 3 and 4 it is important that children continue to read to an adult to clarify understanding, although reading independently is also important to promote an enjoyment of books. 

Times Tables

In Class 3, we know the importance of learning our times tables to help us with lots of areas of maths. We use  times tables rock stars at home and in school to help us to prepare for the statutory Times Tables check that will be sat at the end of Year 4 from 2020.

Our Learning

In Class 3, much of our learning is cross-curricular and linked to our topic. We do Maths and English each day although sometimes this is through using our skills to help us in other subjects. Through our topic work we develop our skills as artists, designers, historians, geographers and musicians. In addition, we also have weekly science, outdoor learning, computing and French lessons.

We are working really hard to become independent learners through finding our own ways to solve problems. We have lots of resources available to help with this and also know that sometimes it helps to collaborate and work together when something is challenging.

We are very lucky to have Mr Gunnell, our Sports Coach, to teach us Games skills each Wednesday and also do swimming and for part of the year. Our PE lessons are usually on a Wednesday and Friday.

Our topic for the Autumn term is 'Location, Location, Location'. See our topic overview below to see what we will be learning.
