This term our topic is:
Tribal Tales

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen?

Head back to the prehistoric times to gather berries and hunt down dinner. Unearth ancient objects and visit astonishing mystical monuments that reveal the secrets of ancient times.

Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years from the Stone Age to the Roman Invasion. Work as a tribe to build a seasonal monument to celebrate the coming of spring. Then sit quietly waiting for the sun to rise. What Tribal Tales will you have to tell? 


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  multiplication and division. Children will need to become much more fluent reciting the 3, 4 and 8 times table.

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.

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 tested on a Monday, 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 Monday.

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 Monday and Friday Morning with the sports coach. 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 Responsibility and Tolerance. The children will be   discussing these values in assembly and within class.


This half term the children will be looking at the celebration of Christmas.

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.

Mrs Patterson
