Class Name: Dove

This term our topic is:

It's time to take a walk on the wild side! Find out who's coming to visit... is it a bug-munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it?

Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey.

Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the chain. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark! What incredible species can you imagine? 

Feeling peckish? Let's jump aboard the food chain! 

Welcome to Year 3 Dazzling Doves

In Key Stage 2, we ask that the children read to someone at home every day for 5 minutes. The reading may consist of a variety of texts, from novels, to recipes, newspapers and even football programmes!

We ask that a record of this is noted in the children's reading record books. Star stamps will be awarded on the chart inside the front cover. These then add up to star reader certificates and further rewards.

Children have now all got their own username and password for our online Bug Club. You child can access online books and complete comprehension questions to win coins for their page! 

Reading is an essential area where practice at home really pays off!

Maths and Maths Homework

This half term we will be looking at length, perimeter and fractions. 

Your child will be given a piece of Maths homework every Friday. This homework will link with work that we have been doing throughout the week. Homework will be worksheet based. It would be great if you could please also encourage your child to have a go on the newly introduced 'Times Tables Rock Stars' at home.

Please hand in any paper worksheets on the following Wednesday.


Your child will continue to be given up to 10 spellings to learn and practice in their Spelling book each week. These will be now be tested on a Thursday, when new spellings will also be sent out. Please help your child to learn the spellings at home and send their Spelling book to school every Thursday.

Cornerstones Homework

Each half term the children will receive a list of topic based homework that links to our new Cornerstones Curriculum. We ask that they select and complete at least one of them before the end of the half term. We aim to showcase and celebrate completed homework with the class.


We now have P.E. in school on Friday Morning with the sports coach and swimming on Friday Afternoon. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school at all times. Earrings should be removed at home or a letter obtained from the office if ears are newly pierced. 

British Values

This half term the children will be focusing on 'Confidence' and 'Honesty'. The children will be   discussing these values in assembly and within class.


This half term the children will be looking at The Easter Story.

I thank you for your support and cooperation and look forward to having a wonderful and successful year with both you and your children.


Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any questions.

Miss Johal
