Summer update!

Spring has sprung and Summer term is upon us! 

The finish line for Year 3 is in sight, looming on the horizon. Our last bulk of work will include:  

Maths: We will keep exploring the fascinating world of fractions and how to turn them into decimals.  

Writing: We will discover the weird and wonderful world of Kenneth Graham in: “The Wind in the Willow” and keep improving our descriptive writing skills.  

Reading: Our reading lessons will be focused on this timeless masterpiece by William Shakespeare: “The Tempest”.  

Science: After learning all about plants last term and trying to grow them unsuccessfully… (I am sorry to say I am not blessed with “green fingers”). This term we are going to learn all about Nutrition and the human body. Get your skeletons ready and out of the closet! 

DT: We have some extremely exciting news in Design and Technology this term as we are embarking on a cookery journey which will see us collaborate with Malton Cookery School in town! Keep your eyes peeled: a letter will follow soon… 

RE: Our Christian journey has not ended yet and we will explore the concept of Gospel this term. 

PSHE: These lessons progress from the theme of Being Me to learning how to form and maintain healthy relationships. 

Music: We will keep exploring the different genres of music and keep practicing playing the recorder! 

Geography: We are travelling to a different continent this term: North America and will learn what the sunshine state is really like.  

PE: Our PE lessons will resume on Wednesday afternoons and this term it is all about Athletics! Let us get our trainers on and get ready to sprint, hurdle and jump! The children will need their PE kit on that day: outdoor pumps/trainers, black shorts/tracksuit bottoms/leggings, a white T-shirt and black or grey sports sweatshirt.  

Reading at home: We have asked the children to read at home at least 3 times a week and for parents to sign their reading record when they do so. The children will be monitored on this.  

Homework: Homework is issued on Fridays and due back on the following Friday. We spent time in class on that day marking their work and discussing the new homework handed out. In Year 3 we currently use a homework book which allows parents to follow their child’s progress and familiarise themselves with our learning that week at school. The homework handed out is always relevant to the work we are doing in class at that time. Thank you to all the parents for their continued support and dedication with homework!  

TTRS: Thank you to all of you who keep supporting your child at home with their time tables using the app, the children have really progressed and we are regularly using the app in school to support the children with this too. 

Spellings: Spellings are handed out weekly on Fridays, the children receive two sets: one to take home and practice in their homework book and one to be practiced daily at school in their spelling book. The children are tested on their spellings on Fridays. 

Please email with any queries or concerns ( or catch me at the classroom door. I will be out of the classroom on Tuesday afternoons and Friday afternoons (fortnightly) with other responsibilities, please relay any messages via Ms. Plues-Clark who will be covering in my absence.  

Thank you. 

Miss Davet.
