Year 3 Termly Newsletter


Welcome to Year 3

Hello and welcome to Year 3 everyone. Mrs Younis is the Gorilla class teacher, supported and assisted by Mrs Grose and Miss Wilson, who are the teaching assistants. We are really looking forward to teaching your children and have got some great lessons planned. You will be able to access some of the children's exciting work and photographs on the website. 


In English, we will be learning about 'A Bear called Paddington'. All of our English sessions for the first half term will be based around this story. In Maths, we will be focusing on number and place value, following the new 'Maths No Problem' scheme. This Singaporean approach to teaching mathematics develops pupils' mathematical skills and confidence. It also makes mathematics more engaging and interesting.

We will be studying what life was like during the Stone Age and will hold our very own Stone Age day on the 25th November 2020. Your children will have the opportunity to gain a full insight to what life was like during this era and how the hunter gatherers survived. 

Children should be reading consistently everyday, they are expected to read at least 4 times per week. Reading books will be handed out on a Monday and should be returned the following Friday.


P.E kits must be in school at all times and should stay in school until half term. Our P.E sessions will take place on a Monday and Tuesday with Mr Henderson. An outdoor P.E kit is required and should be sent into school as soon as possible because the children will be taking part in sports activities held outside.

If you have any questions or you are uncertain about anything, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Younis via the school office.


Thank you for your support.

3G started their rock unit within their own school grounds, participating in a rock detective walk to begin to recognise the different types of rocks, their physical properties and their uses. They began to describe the rocks and grow their vocabulary to do so. We walked all around our school to find things that are made from rocks. Here is what we spotted!
