Term 1

Mighty Metals

The children will be learning about forces and magnets. This project develops children’s knowledge of magnetism and what forces are and how the act upon objects.

Linked science investigations: What are the two main forces and what do they look like in the real world? Why do magnets attract and repel? What does friction do? How mighty are magnets? 


Our book for this term is The Iron Man by Ted Hughes





P.E is now two days a week for both classes: on Wednesday and Friday (swimming). 


Children should wear P.E. kit (white t-shirt and black shorts) on Wednesday. On Fridays children should bring in their swimming costume, a towel and goggles if needed.


REMINDER: On Fridays it is suggested that earrings should be removed. If worn, only stud earrings will be permitted in the pool. Please be advised because of when the swimming lesson finishes, we will return to school by 3:30pm on Fridays only.


Children should also bring a water bottle to school so that they don't have to leave a lesson when they get thirsty.


Children will be provided with weekly homework. This may include maths based activities, writing activities and/or other activities relating to the curriculum. We are currently in the process of setting up an online learning platform for each child. Children will be given a 'Seesaw' login shortly and details will be sent home informing parents/carers as to how to set this up. Home reading books are also being sent home. Please return these as soon as they have been read (alongside a comment on their home reading record) so that a new book can be given out. 

Year 3 Red Bus Book Challenge


Below is the Year 3 book Red Bus challenge. We'd love to see the children each read as many of these as they can during the year- this is a challenge and there will be prizes for those who read the most! Many of them are quite quick reads and are full of colourful pictures, so are ideal if your child finds reading a struggle. There are also some longer books for faster readers. The books have been carefully chosen because we love them, and we are sure the children will too!

All books are available in school but due to having limited numbers of some we do ask that any which are borrowed are returned quickly. We also encourage all home books to be returned on a daily basis so that we can keep a record of how much your child is reading at home. Any reading you can do with them really does help them so much.

Other information:

Please ensure that children do not bring unnecessary items to school. Ideally, children should only bring the following items to school: 


Fruit or vegetable for healthy snack at play time

Lunch box 

Water bottle

Home reading book
