Summer Term - Class Three


We hope you all had a relaxing Easter break with your families and are ready for the final term of the current academic year.

We are all looking forward to a fun filled Summer Term packed full of exciting topics and activities including the Ancient Egyptians, plant growth, performance poetry and our local settlement/area.



In English, we shall focus on writing triumphing stories, creating and delivering presentations and using different techniques whilst writing poetry.


In Maths, we shall focus on fractions, money, time, shape and statistics.


In RE, our four areas of focus are Energy, Journey in Love, Choices and Special Places.


Our PE days for this term are Monday and Wednesday so please ensure children arrive to school in their full PE kit.



If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to arrange an after-school meeting or put a message into your child's reading record.


Kind regards,

Miss McElhill and the Year 3 team.






Homework will be sent home weekly on a Friday, it is set on Microsoft Teams or a paper copy can be requested. It is due by the following Friday.


Please do not hesitate to contact myself, Miss McElhill, if there are any difficulties with completing homework.
