Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.

Reading Challenge Books

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back to Spring 2, We cannot believe that we are already half way through the academic year. This term has 2 parts to it the online teaching until the 8th of March and then we return to school. Our themes are extremely exciting this terms and we are really looking forward to welcoming the children back to school.


This term in English, we will once again begin with a narrative unit to support the children in developing their figurative and descriptive language. We will be using the text Sweet Clara and the freedom quilt. This text is a story of Clara who sews a secret map to escape to freedom from the plantation where she is a slave. Following the narrative unit, the children will move onto diary entries and write in the role of Clara, considering her feelings and actions in the story. This will also be an opportunity for the children to develop their understanding of the use of paragraphs further. Finally the children will move onto non fiction structures of writing including newspaper reports, non chronological reports and explanation texts. This will teach the children how to layout these non fiction genres of writing and how layout can help the reader’s understanding and engagement.


This term we will start with the use of measurement, the children will begin with understanding how to accurately measure using a ruler. Then they will move onto converting between units of measure. These topics will ensure that they continue to apply their mathematical knowledge to the real word. It is really important that the children continue their key maths skills including learning their timestables and number bonds. These skills will be vital to support the children’s maths understanding as they move up through the school.


Reading continue to be a priority at HPACP and in Y3, we are still completing the reading challenge and children should have read 18 books by now. We understand that lockdown and remote learning may have slowed this down, but please do ensure that you are reading everyday at home with your child even if it is only 10-15 minutes per day.


Once we return to school PE will resume. The children will need to bring their PE kits on the first day back of school and leave them until the Easter holidays, this will mean that they will always have their PE kits in school. Please make sure your children have their full PE kit including trainers, school top and shorts. If it is cold, the children can still bring in blue tracksuit bottoms to wear and a blue jumper.
