Year 3 Termly Newsletter

This Spring term has definitely been different, with the majority of it being completing via home learning for most of our children. The children have made each and everyone of us really proud and jumped straight back in school life with incredible perseverance. 

Next term we will be looking at play scripts in English and continuing with Maths No Problem looking at length, volume, capacity and time. In our wider curriculum we will be looking at the Ancient Egyptians. In Science we will be learning about light, reflection and shadows and in Geography we will be learning about the settlements and the land use of Egypt and using maps to locate Egypt and the countries surrounding. 

Take a look at some of the wonderful things the children have been doing during the Spring term. 

What an amazing first term at Woodlea Panda Class have had. So much progress has been made and lots of new skills have been learnt. I can’t wait to see what the next term brings. 

In English, we will be looking at Fables and in Maths we will be looking at multiplication and divisions problems leading into further multiplication and division. Our new History topic for the Spring term will be The Bronze/Iron Age and in Science we will be learning about forces and magnets. 

Have a lovely Christmas and we will see you all in the New Year. 

A very warm welcome to Panda Class. We are very excited to have the children in school and back to learning lots of exciting new things. 


Miss Platts is the class teacher supported by Mrs Bane and Miss Wilson.


The first part of our term in English we will be looking at story writing using ‘A Bear called Paddington’. In Maths, we have an exciting new scheme called ‘Maths No Problem’. The scheme of work is based on Singapore Maths and helps the children move from concrete to pictorial to abstract learning.


For our theme work we will be looking at The Stone Age and on the 25th November we will hold our very own Stone Age day in school. 


Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and to be returned on a Friday. We read 4 times a week and this must be signed by an adult. 


P.E will be on a Monday and Tuesday and full Indoor and outdoor kits are required. Please ensure these are all named. 


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.

Our Positive Pandas!

We have had an amazing start to the first part of the Autumn term in Panda Class. The children have worked incredibly hard to settle back in and they have come on leaps and bounds. Their handwriting progress is definitely something to be proud of. 

For the second part of the Autumn term we will be looking at Stig of the Dump in English and continuing looking at lots of different methods for addition and subtraction to deepen understanding using Maths No Problem.
