Welcome to Class 3!



We are reading and writing in a range of genres this term, including setting descriptions, diaries and informal letters. We will incorporate our topic into these, encouraging the children to write for a purpose. 


We are continuing our topic of plants. We will be conducting investigations about plants, how they grow, how water travels through a plant and how they grow their own food. Children will know the parts of the flower and the job of each part. 


We are continuing to learn about being safe online through our DB primary accounts. We will be setting up our own blogs and forums, discussing how we can communicate through technology whilst staying safe.

We are taking a Viking voyage through parts of Europe. We will be investigating where they came from, including parts of Scandinavia and Western Europe. In addition, we will explore the parts of Britain that the Vikings invaded and how their legacy lives on today.     


We are learning a range of invasion games, including netball, bench ball and rugby. We will be developing key skills such as passing, throwing and catching, as well as team building and communication. 


We will be consolidating our knowledge of length by investigating the perimeter of shapes. We will begin our unit on fractions where will add, subtract and order fractions. In addition to this, children will learn how to find fractions of items and amounts.  

Please help your children by practicing their times tables, particularly 3, 4  and 8. This will help with their fluency and understanding, particularly with fractions. 


Our homework will be set on Friday to be brought back to school on Wednesday. Children should practise their handwriting, reading and times tables as often as they can at home as well as completing any English and Maths tasks set. 

We ask parents to encourage children to practise key skills such as handwriting and times tables. Please listen to your child read every day.
