Welcome to  Year 3

with Mrs Neesam



Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break spending time with your family and friends. I am looking forward to this new term which will be filled with new and exciting learning opportunities.


General Information



Pupils are asked to bring their reading books and diary to school each day as this will enable me to provide a comment and inform you when Guided Reading sessions have taken place during the week. Please spend time with your child discussing the setting, characters and development of the plot to further their understanding of the text.

Pupils will begin to record their independent reading as the year progresses and it is important that parents/carers provide feedback based on completed reading at home.



Pupils are welcome to bring their own small snacks to be eaten during morning or afternoon breaks. Snacks should be a healthy food choice such as fruit or a cereal bar. Chocolate bars and crisps are not considered to be healthy snacks.



Homework will be set each Friday and should be completed and returned in the folder provided the following Friday. Weekly homework will include a Maths and spelling based activity to reinforce learning that has taken place during the week.

The pupils will be tested each Friday on the spelling words and assessed each Monday on times table facts. In addition to this, pupils will receive occasional homework activities/projects throughout the year relating to the creative topics which I'm sure they will enjoy. 



During the Spring Term, P.E. sessions will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays - our current units of study are Gymnastics and Hockey. Please ensure a full P.E kit is brought into school and that items are clearly labelled. Thank you.

Maths Autumn Objectives

On Tuesday 19th November, we celebrated our first Class Mass in Church with Father John, our families and parishioners. The theme of the Mass was based on 'Belonging' and we enjoyed reading the Word of God and singing our favourite hymns together with the parish community.

Judaism- learning to embrace other faiths

We are learning about Jewish worship at the Synagogue. We recognise that a prayer shawl (tallit) and a prayer hat (kippur) are worn in the synagogue by men and boys and that the Jewish Community come together to celebrate, study and pray. The rabbi reads from the Holy Torah at the bimah (a raised platform) and the sacred scripture is kept in the ark.
As a class, we designed a Remembrance theme at the front of our school. We enjoyed creating silhouette art pieces linked to WW1 and made a poppy wreath. As a whole school, we gathered for an assembly led by our School Council and had a two minute silence in memory and honour of all soldiers who  fought bravely to serve our country.

History- Learning to order Stone Age Events chronologically

I am very proud of all the children who put themselves forward to represent the class as a potential Eco and School Councillor. The individual presentations were excellent and the results were close.


Congratulations to Charlotte and Harry who were voted by the class to be our Eco Councillors and to Aaron and Pippa who will represent Year 3N on the School Council.
