Autumn Term in Year 3!


We are now well into a fun-filled Autumn Term! So far, the children have been learning about different climates across the world and Ancient Egypt. They have also learnt about light and shadow in Science and we are just about to start our topic entitled 'Amazing Bodies'.


Times Table Rock Stars seems to have been a huge hit with the children. If you are experiencing any technical difficulties, please speak to Mr. Craggs and Miss Elias and we will endeavour to solve them. The children's quick recall of times table and division facts is extremely important for their future learning.


The children have enjoyed their swimming lessons and these continue until Wednesday 12th December. There will be no swimming in the last week of term. 


Homework hand in has been excellent so far this year and the children have done really well remembering to bring their work and folders in on Tuesdays. Homework hand in day will continue to be on Tuesday's throughout the year and spelling checks will continue to be on Wednesdays. 


In the last two weeks of Autumn term, we plan to start our DT project which will involve making sandwiches! Keep a look out for emails with more information. 

Mr Craggs and Miss Elias
