Year 3


Welcome to the Summer Term in Year 3!

by Mrs Buckton and Mr Wall 

The topics covered this term are included in the table below. Please do talk to your child about the books they are reading or the  topics they are studying in school. At the moment we have just finished playscripts and are now embarking on a mission to write an information text on our history topic, The Ancient Egyptians. Please be patient as this will be a masterpiece worth waiting for!

I hope the children are playing some of our maths games at home with you. For most of our games you just need playing cards or a dice.

Mr Wall is working hard to encourage the children to continue to read and we are improving our reading rocket to see who can read the most books in a term! Good Luck everyone!




Below is an over view of what Year 3 are currently learning and this will be updated to include our new topics in Summer 2.
