Year 3 - Ducks and Otters

Autumn Term 2017

Dear pupils, parents and carers


First of all, we hope you’ve had a brilliant summer, and welcome to year 3! This half term in maths we’ll study place value, as well as addition and subtraction. In literacy, we’ll be writing instructions and stories based on our topic, Stone Age to Iron Age Britain. We plan to have a Stone Age wow day (date to be confirmed).

Our PE lessons are as follows:

Ducks: Tuesday and Wednesday.

Otters:  Monday and Tuesday.

No swimming this term.

Homework will be given out every Friday and due in on the following Thursday; spelling tests are also on Thursdays. As well as completing their homework, we expect children to read every day and practise their times tables and spellings at home.

Our teaching team includes:

Ducks:  Mrs Brennan (class teacher), Mrs Margrain and Miss Taylor (one-to-one co-educators).

Otters:  Mr Cansell (class teacher), Mrs Whitbread (PPA Co-educator).

Year 3 Co-educator:  Mrs Goodge.

Please ensure that children bring in a named bottle for their water and that all clothing/lunchboxes/etc are also named.

We are looking forward to teaching your children and working with you to make sure they have a great year!

Best wishes,

The Year 3 teaching team
