Year Three

Homework Topic – Year 3: St Martin

Dear Parents,

A very Happy New Year to you all.  We hope you had a wonderful time and we would like to thank you all for your kind wishes, cards and gifts at Christmas. We want to welcome you back to school and tell you a little about what we’re doing this term.

In Religion, we will be focusing on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, this links with the “I Belong” book that the children are using to support their preparation for First Holy Communion.

Our topic in Science, is Forces and Magnets and we will be visiting The Science Museum at the end of this month to develop your child’s understanding of this topic.

Our History topic, is the Romans.  We will be studying all aspects of the Roman way of life and how it still influences us today.

Our P.E. focus will be gymnastics and team sports.  These lessons will take place on Thursdays and Fridays.  Please ensure that your child has a full P.E. kit in school at all times.  This should include a plain navy tracksuit, school P.E. shorts and top and navy/black trainers. 

Thank you for listening to your child read on a regular basis.  Please continue to support them by reading very regularly (at least 3 times a week).  Even if children read fluently, it is still so important that they are reading aloud to an adult at home. Children love to read aloud and we really want to encourage this and foster a love of books at home and at school.

Homework will be sent home on Thursdays and needs to be returned to school on Tuesdays at the latest.  Spelling tests will also take place on Tuesdays.

Maths will be taught daily and as well as studying multiplying and dividing, we will focus on money.  Please give your child the chance to play with money at home and use real money in real life situations.  Please continue to support your child with their times tables.

Thank you for your continuing support, we are looking forward to an exciting spring term.

Kind regards,


Class Teachers
