Year 3

Welcome to the Autumn Term Year 3!

We hope you are enjoying yourself in our school and are already learning lots of new things. In English we are reading and writing mystery texts.

For our Geography topic we will be exploring the local area, Chesham. We will be developing our map reading skills, exploring the physical and human features in Chesham and talking about how the town has changed over time. Let us know what you find out yourself about Chesham.


Throughout this Spring term in Science we will be learning about animals including humans, including the human body and healthy eating. 


P.E. will be on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure children have suitable shoes to wear for P.E. lessons outside. 

Full indoor and outdoor kit will be needed throughout the Autumn term. You must have the correct school t-shirt, with our logo on, and black shorts or leggings if you need to cover your legs for religious reasons. We also ask that children bring in a separate jumper to wear during outside P.E. lessons rather than their school sweatshirt.
Homework will be set every Wednesday and is due back in school by the following Monday

Spellings will also be set each Wednesday and children will be tested on these the following Monday.

We are giving the children a few weeks before Homework is set to allow them time to settle into their new school.

Reading Records: Children are expected to read a minimum of 5 times per week at home, including to an adult for at least 10 minutes, and this should be recorded in reading records and signed. Book choices should be challenging and include a range of fiction and non-fiction. Use the book list we gave you for ideas. 

Attendance and Punctuality
We ask that children arrive ready and on time at the start of each day. If a child is absent for any reason, please send in a signed letter when they return to school.
Medicines and Inhalers
If your child uses an asthma pump, please bring a spare inhaler to be kept in school and complete the Healthcare Plan and Request to Administer Medicines Form on our website.
