message from the headteacherThank you for your marvellous attendance during the performances of this year's school show 'Golden Time'. Your support was very much appreciated.

As we come to the end of our school year, we would like to thank you for your support in so many events and occasions during the school year. Thank you.

Year 3 SM
As we head into the final half-term in Year 3, it is clear that the children continue to develop their knowledge and skills across the curriculum. At parents' evenings in Autumn and Spring, it was lovely to hear that parents are delighted with their children's progress and continuing interest in learning. Thank you for all the support given at home, too!

A day in Chester was our fourth and final trip/visit for the year where everyone enjoyed learning how the Romans used to live: what they ate, how they dressed, their weaponry and their expansion of the Roman Empire. They had the chance to be an archaeologist, dress up, play Roman games and even march through the streets of Chester with a Roman soldier!

The children also loved the Narnia Experience which brought our class book - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - to life. Rainforest Dave's visit brought the excitement and wonder of the Rainforest to the classroom as the children got up close with tarantulas, snakes, stick-insects and millipedes. There were some beautiful drawings of insects and items from the rainforest and everyone (including the parents) had fun with the tribal face-painting designs and making tribal jewellery to wear and take home - a fun-filled learning experience!

KEY DATES:Thanks to all of the parents who have attended both of our parents' evenings, this year. It was great to share the children's many achievements. We hope you also enjoyed the Curriculum Evening for Parents in the Autumn term outlining our broad and balanced curriculum. If you couldn't make it or want a reminder, don't worry there is a copy of the information given in the Ebag.

Ms Mackenzie, Mr Banks and the TA team welcome you to Year 3 and the first year of the Juniors!
There are lots of exciting opportunities to learn, both inside and outside of the classroom. During English lessons, the children will study a variety of stories and poems including poems to perform and myths and legends. The children develop their skills in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and they find new ways to express themselves through activities using drama, music and creative writing. In Maths, they consolidate and extend their practical, mental and written skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They learn to solve a range of word problems as they use and apply their maths in their everyday lives. Topic work leads the children on a cross-curricular learning journey around the world and through Rainforests and back in time to People of the Past! Keep watching the website and letters home for updates on forthcoming exciting trips and visits! We get to keep fit and go for swimming lessons on a Tuesday for the first term, too - Hurrah! 🏊

Learning Goals
Being in Year 3 is an exciting place to be as a whole new part of the school opens up to the children. It is here that they learn to become even more responsible and organised as they become Juniors.

Everyone in Year 3 continues to have individual targets for English and Maths as well as a General target which they work hard on, both at home and school. These are reviewed regularly and help the children to keep a focus on their learning, achieve and reach their potential.
In Year 3, homework plays an important part in the children's learning and is set to address the needs of each child, to review and consolidate their learning and to develop independent learning skills.
English is given on a Monday and expected back by Thursday each week.
Maths is given on a Thursday and is expected in on the following Monday. The spelling test is given each Friday and children should aim for full marks with regular practice.

Our children are also actively encouraged to read every night at home and to practise their spellings and target times tables on a regular basis throughout the week.
