Anti Bullying Week

The children in Year 3 have been talking about how they can show respect and care for their peers.  They have talked about how if we all respect each other and embrace out differences we can reduce bullying in society.



Term Two

Our Neighbourhood


For Term Two the children will be finding out more about the community they live in. They will be learning about human and physical geographical features and types of land use in the local area, The children will learn how to use a compass and how to identify places on maps. We will be taking children on a couple of walks into Snodland to identify various geographical features.   . 



The children enjoyed a walk into Snodland looking at geographical features.  They identified different types of land use, looked at human and physical features and completed a traffic survey. 




This term the children have been learning how to develop their instruction writing through the use of time conjunctions, adverbs and detail. The children have written instructions about how to make medicine for George's Grandma and how to care for small animals. 



The children are now spending some time and reading and writing playscripts based on familiar stories. They are looking at the structure and language used. next week the children will write a short playscript for 'The Twits'.





During Maths the children have looked at place value and different strategies for addition and subtraction. This term they are learning about 3x, 4x and 8x tables and how they relate to each other.  Soon they will be learning how to multiply and divide with 2 digit numbers. 

The children have been enjoying our new scheme 'Maths No Problem!'







Here the children are using a range of manipulatives to solve division problems.



This term we will be learning about ‘Forces and Magnets’. The children have already enjoyed learning about the affect of the friction on different surfaces and then impact that has on how far things can travel.



Things to remember:

Homework will be set on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Children will be have both a reading comprehension and a spelling detective sheet to complete. Times tables will be set on a Monday and children will be tested on the Friday.


Don't forget to use Times Table Rockstars to help you with your tables.

If you have forgotten your login, don't forget to ask your teacher.

We encourage children to read as much as possible from their own books, school library and local library. In addition, each child will have the opportunity to change their own Home School Reading Book.

The children have all been given an 'Active Learn' login so they can access books online at home.



Pen License

In year 3, we will be encouraging children to work towards earning their pen licence to have the privilege of writing in pen in curriculum areas. If you would like to provide a pen for your child we recommend either a Parker or a Lamy fountain pen, otherwise the school will supply pens along with all other necessary stationary.



P.E Kits and Uniform


We ask that all uniform is clearly named.

We expect all children to be equipped with a full PE kit: shorts, t-shirt, socks and plimsolls as well as a jumper and tracksuit bottoms or leggings whilst the weather is cold.

Please ensure kits are named and in school all week as timetabling may change.

For swimming children must come equipped with a swim suit (boys trunks not shorts), swimming hat and towel.

Children with pierced ears should remove earrings for all PE sessions including swimming, and must have their hair tied back for health and safety reasons.



Please note: Swimming will take place in Terms 2,4 and 6 for Year 3. This will be replaced by Gymnastics in Terms 1, 3 and 5.





















Well done to all of Year 3 for all their learning on Ancient Egypt.  We ended the topic with a great day with dressing up, writing Egyptian poems and painting clay masks.



If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask.


 Thank you
