Welcome back to the Summer term! We have lots of exciting events this term, including trips to visit our partner schools as well as welcoming them to visit Ashbury Meadow. We have a trip in June to visit the Peak District to learn more about rivers as part of our topic and we are excited about our Prehistoric Britain topic this half term.

Supporting your child

Using the internet at home or visiting the local library would allow your child to research and increase their learning of the topics in the Year 3 curriculum.

Children in 3B will need their P.E. kits on Tuesdays.
Children in 3D will need their P.E. kits on Mondays.

All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. Please continue to listen to your child reading at home for ten minutes per night and ask your child questions about the text your child has read. Having an adult or older sibling listen to them reading will benefit your child immensely and help them to make excellent progress in reading. Please sign your child’s reading record each time you read with them and ensure they have this in school with them to change their book.

May we remind you that homework is given out on a Friday and should be handed in on a Monday or Tuesday by the latest. All homework should be completed without help where possible.

Spellings are handed out on Monday and should be practised every day to prepare for the test on Friday.
The children also do a times tables test every Monday. Please practise the relevant times tables (2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x, 8x) as much as you can. To practise both should only take 10 minutes a night.

As a parent or guardian of a child in Year 3, you are always welcome to speak to us at any time; we will try to be available outside at the beginning and end of the school day.


In this unit, the children will be reading the story Stig of the Dump and learning the text map.

They shall write thier own meeting tales, innovating the characters and setting from this story.

We will also be writing explanation texts about how people lived in prehistoric Britain.


In year 3 we shall be looking at the following topics

Position and direction


We will also be continuing to focus on using mental and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


In science the children will be exploring forces and magnets. They will be finding out how different forces work and how magnets are used in everday life.


The children learn about simulations using Purple Mash which can be accessed from home using the log in which is stuck into the front page of children’s homework books.

Theme work: History, Geography, Art & D&T

The children will be focussing on the topic 'Prehistoric Britain'. This involves looking at how people lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age as well as learning about prehistoric animals.
