Our teacher is Miss Topham, and we are supported by Miss Nazmin and Mrs Thompson.



This half term Year 3 are reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Our topic is Magic Science and we will focus on exploring forces and magnets. We will develop our  scientific skills by completing investigations, such as designing and making our own catapults!




In Maths we are learning to recognise the place value of each digit in a 3 digit number, to find 10 and 100 more and less than given numbers and to compare and order numbers up to 1000. We are also practising counting in 4s, 8s, 50s and 100s – it would be great if you could help us at home!






Our text for the half term is The Seeds of Friendship by Michael Foreman. So far, we have learnt to make accurate predictions using clues from the text. Then, we used pictures to sequence the story and described them using expanded noun phrases.



Year 3 PE is on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure your child has the correct kit in school.

Please read with your child every night for 10 minutes – it really helps them to improve!

Homework will be set on Fridays and should be returned by the following Wednesday. House points will be awarded for good effort and for returning homework on time!

If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to us after school.

Thank you

Miss Topham, Miss Nazmin and Mrs Thompson (3DT team)
