Year 3 Additional Bits of Information

Year 3 Autumn Termly Newsletter

Welcome to Woodlea Junior School! Here, you can find home learning, letters and other important information, including what we have been learning about and what’s coming up this year. Please visit us regularly to follow our learning journey throughout the year.

We look forward to sharing key learning opportunities with you. 

Mrs Younis is the class teacher supported by Mrs Schepens and Mrs Grose.


For the first half term in English, we will be writing an adventure story  using ‘A Bear called Paddington’. For our non-fiction unit, we will crete informative leaflets about Leyland using all of the non-fiction features. In Maths, we will be learning about place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division before starting our exciting Maths scheme called ‘Maths No Problem’. The scheme of work is based on Singapore Maths and helps the children move from concrete to pictorial and then to abstract learning. 


For our theme work we will be studying life during the Stone Age and on Friday 19th November we will hold our very own Stone Age day in school. During this enrichment day, the children will dress up as Stone Age people and learn all about this era through hands on experiences on the school grounds.


Reading books will be sent home on a Friday and they will need to be returned each Friday. It is advised that the children must read at least 4 times per week and this must be signed by an adult. Reading plus can also contribute towards a read. This must be logged in your child's yellow reading record along with the percentage that they score and signed by an adult.


Homework will be set online on a Tuesday and will be due in on a Monday. This will either be on Seesaw, TTROCKSTARS, Spelling Shed or Mathletics.


P.E will be taking place on a Thursday and Friday and the correct indoor and outdoor kits are required. Please ensure these are all named.

If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Best Wishes

Mrs Younis
