Welcome to Y3 Elder



Hello Year 3, 


I cannot believe we are already approaching the summer term. I will let you into a little secret, the summer term is my favourite. Reading in the field, learning in the outdoor classroom, Athletics within P.E and some fantastic topics - Geography-Rivers, Science-Plants and D&T- Textiles,


Bring on the memories! 


Weekly Reminders


  • We have PE on Tuesday afternoons and you will be required to come into class in your PE kit.  
  • Homework and spellings will be set on Friday in books and it is to be completed by the following Tuesday. 
  • Spelling tests will be on Wednesday mornings.
  • Reading Records should be brought into school every day and you should aim to read with your child at least three times a week - signing each time to show that you have done so.


As a school, we have invested in a number of online learning platforms across the curriculum to help keep your brains engaged. All children have access to Bug Club, Times Tables Rock Stars and (login details are in reading records).


Lastly, I have attached below the curriculum newsletter for the term, end of year expectations and some useful resources you may wish to use at home.


If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to contact me:


Lets have an amazing term!

Happy breathing!

Sometimes in class we feel that some of the work can be challenging. We have learnt through a resource used in class called My Happy Mind that breathing can elevate lots of stress. It can really calm us and the teachers down. Watch this space for lots of different videos. Maybe you could try some at home?

Here is a copy of the Year 3 expectations - this covers what your child will be learning throughout the year in Reading, Writing and Maths.

Methods In Maths


We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.
