Y3 Maple

Welcome to Y3 Maple



Welcome back Year 3 Maple!


We have lots of exciting things in store this half term and we cannot wait to continue developing our love for learning and grow our brains! 


In English we will continue to write for a range of different purposes, focusing on the RAFT (reason, audience, features and tone) for different texts. 


We will be continuing our Geography topics of Rivers, which we have all really been enjoying. We will be exploring the question “Are all rivers the same?”


Our focus in PSHE is health and wellbeing where we will be looking at the importance of sleep, diet and exercise. 


In PE we will be preparing for sports day! We can’t wait to get outside (hopefully in the sun) and practice some of our sports day activities. 


Take a look at our Summer 2 bookshelf below to see our topics and how we plan to use high quality texts to enhance them. We will keep this class page and 'X' updated with key information and pictures of what we have been up to so keep checking in!


Weekly Reminders


  • We have PE on Mondays and Thursdays.
  • Spellings will be given out on Fridays, ready for the test the following Wednesday. This term, homework will be topic based. The children can choose three or more tasks that they would like to complete, based around our topic of Rivers. 
  • 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.



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


Lets have an amazing final half term!
