For their fiction writing this half-term, the children will be studying the books and stories of Michael Foreman. With their non-fiction work, they will learn about instructions and explanations based around the world of the game show.


The children will be looking at identifying numbers up to 1000, finding place value of up to 3 digit numbers, finding 10 or 100 more of less than a given number and counting from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100. They will then move on to adding and subtracting, focusing on adding a three-digit number and multiples of one, a three-digit number and multiples of ten, and a three digit number and multiples of a hundred. Finally they will start to learn about the formal written methods of column addition and subtraction.


The children will learn about Forces and Magnets. They will identify pushes and pulls as forces and explore how things move on different surfaces. They will find out about attraction and repulsion by magnetic forces and which materials are magnetic. The children will also look at compasses and uses of magnets and carry out some enquiries using magnets.


The children will be studying the human and physical features of Nantwich and the surrounding area.


For this half-term, the children will be learning about the skills of football, on Fridays.  Please could the children bring in their outdoor PE kit for this lesson.

Forest Schools

For this half-term, the children will participate in Forest Schools. This is an activity that is carried out in the school grounds. The children will ideally need old, warm clothes to be brought in for every Wednesday. 


Both Literacy and Numeracy homework will be sent home on Fridays to be returned back by Wednesday the following week. Spellings, which do not need to be handed in, will be handed out on the Tuesday ready for a test on the following Monday. If your child misplaces their spelling sheet, you will find it on the school website from Wednesdays.

I am really looking forward to this year and I hope your children enjoy their learning experiences in Year 3. If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to come in and see me.
