Autumn Term 2   2020
Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back! I hope that you have had a lovely half term.

There is a slight change to the drop off times in the morning. This term, you will be able to drop off your child between 8:40am and 9.00am. The register will be taken at 9.05am so please make sure your child is in school on time, every day. The pick-up time for Year 3 will now be at 3:10pm outside the school gates.

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Mighty Metals’ where we will learn all about forces, magnets and different metals.

Our class novel this half term is the classic story – The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.

Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Please ensure that your child reads at home daily and that this is recorded in their reading record. Your child’s reading book and reading record need to be sent into school daily to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress.

As writers we will be developing our suspense in stories, especially defeating the monster tales as we will be studying the story called The Cobbler and the Dragon.

As mathematicians we will consolidate our place value knowledge and use it to help us solve multiplication and division problems.

All PE will be taught outside. Due to unpredictable weather please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school every day.

Remember to check the Home Learning section every Friday to practice your spellings and maths facts for your tests the following week.

Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances interactions with staff will be limited. If you have any questions, queries or photos that you would like to share please email me at
