Welcome to Year 3 Spring 2023!



This term we are exploring a project titled ‘Rocks, Relics and Rumbles’. During this topic, we will learn all about the physiology of Planet Earth and how this  creates volcanoes, mountains, earthquakes and other natural phenomena. 


At the bottom of this page are three documents - vocabulary, a knowledge organiser and home learning tasks for this unit. The home learning tasks are optional and do not need to be brought into school but will support your child's learning.


In addition, we will be following the national curriculum requirements of English, Maths, Science, RHSE and RE. In English, we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts and developing our understanding of spellings, punctuation and grammar. In Maths, we will be developing and applying the number system, securing numerical fluency and calculating. We will also be exploring fractions, measure, statistics and understanding geometry (properties of shape).


Swimming has now finished.


P.E. at school will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays where we will continue to wear our PE kit to school. The kit consists of a sky blue polo, royal blue Oaklands jumper, royal blue cotton shorts, socks and suitable sports trainers. For health and safety reasons earrings and watches should be removed for all PE lessons and long hair must be tied up.



Reading:                               Every night (15 minutes – please comment in your child’s reading record).

                                                   Reading books will be changed on a Thursday or Friday and each pupil will take two books home 

                                                   depending on their level of reading ability. Please make sure children have their books 

                                                   available to read every day.


Topic:        This will be given out every other week on a Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday in homework books. 


Doodle Maths:                  Daily Maths practice to ensure that gaps are continually being filled and there is                                                                                                            continual progression


We are supported in class by Miss McGrath, Mrs Prophet, Mrs Donnelly and Miss Ward. If you, or anyone you know, has skills or knowledge that could enrich our in-class learning, we would love to hear from you and see if we can make use of this in our lessons. 


If you have any concerns, or questions regarding your child, please contact the school office ( to arrange a meeting.
