Year 3 Learning Links 

These are generally good sites for your children to explore and to research different topics. 

  • Explorify 
  • Oxford Owl 
  • National Geographic kids 
  • BBC Bitesize 


If you can, please download the following app. We will be using these apps to set the children online tasks

  • Learning by Questions (LBQ) 

Please have a look at our Curriculum Overview to see what the children have already covered and to see what is coming up.

Please see below our spellings for this term.

Above are some pictures from our trip to the Crocky Trail

PE Lessons and Kit

Our PE lessons take place on Monday and Tuesday. It is recommended that your child arrives wearing their kit and suitable footwear especially as we are approaching the winter months. This term we will be having a games session with the Manchester City coaches on a Monday and either a gymnastics or a dance session on a Tuesday.


Children will be given homework on Fridays; homework will focus on the week's learning. Children will also take part in 'The Grand Spell' each week; learning a number of different spelling rules.  Results will be posted every Friday on our class Dojo page. 

Every home is busy and it can often feel as though there is no time for homework. However, we will not give out huge amounts of work to do at home.  We recommend no more than 20 - 30 minutes per night with additional time set aside for your child to read. If you have any concerns about your child's homework please come and speak to Mrs Coyle or Mrs Collins.


Can you please check the website and Class Dojo regularly as there will be updates on them both when we get them. 

Holy Communion 

As you all now know the Holy Communion will be taking place this half term. The dates for the Communions are Tuesday 22nd, Thursday 24th June, Tuesday 29th June and Thursday 1st July. The children will then have their Communion breakfast and party on Friday 2nd July. The children are now working very hard in school to practice the songs. If it is possible it would be very helpful if the children could attend mass on Sundays. 


Here are some of our reading challenge pictures. The children had to read in unusual places.


Our focus for the first half term is to finish off our work on fractions. We need to know how to add and subtract them. We will then be moving onto measurement so that we can learn how to tell the time.


We are going to discuss what it is like and what it means to be a part of a family. Also, we are going to think about being a part of Jesus' family.


In English this summer we will be looking at recounts and information leaflets. We are going to use our trip to the Crocky Trail for recounts and our Geography topic of Coasts for an information text.
