Term Three

Our Neighbourhood Now and Then


For Term Three the children will be finding out more about how the community they live in has changed over time.  The children will be learning about changes in industry in Snodland such as the paper mill and in Kent with particular focus on hopping. Next term the children will visit Chatham Dockyard and consider the ship building industry in the area.




This term the children will be learning how to use a wide range of sentence openers using ISPACE.

They will be writing alternative versions of traditional tales.

Later in the term the children will be learning how to write explanation texts and non chronological reports.  




During Maths lessons the children have looked at place value, addition and subtraction and division and multiplication. This term the children are learning to compare lengths and solve problems involving length before moving on to mass and volume.

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







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



This term we will be learning about light. The children will be considering reflective materials and looking at shadows. They will consider the question 'Is the sun a hero or a villain?'


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.
