Spring Term - Mountain High 





Can you touch a mountain peak?


We have an exciting term of learning planned for Year 3. We'll be starting with a carousel of activities consisting of orienteering where we will be learning to follow directions on the eight point compass to name just a few. Lots of specialist learning will take place during these activities

In science, we will be studying rocks and soils, where we will be identifying how the rocks are made up and what properties they have. Visiting Laser Quest will be a highlight which will bring together our historical learning where the Romans and the Celts have a battle.  A special guest, Boudicca will also enlighten us on how the Celts went into battle. In Art, our focus will be to create collographs of mountain scenes. Our PSHE learning will look at zones of Regulation. Christianity is the religion for our RE learning this term. 



Each week the children will receive spellings and times tables appropriate to their level. These will be stuck into their homework books and sent home every Friday.

If you ever misplace or lose spellings, please let your class teacher know. 

Test days:

Thursday - Times table test

Thursday - Spelling test



Please don't forget your 10-15 minutes a day of reading and your 20 minutes (or more!) a week of TT Rockstars. This needs to be completed between the Friday and the Thursday of the following week.



The school day

The classroom doors will open at 8.35am and close at 8.45am. If the classroom door is shut when you arrive, please take your child to the office and sign them in there. 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm. Please be prompt in being on the playground ready to collect your child and to hear about all the wonderful learning they have done.



Parent meetings

We are delighted to be able to welcome parents and guardians in for a chat when needed . Where possible, please wait until the end of the day and after all children have been dismissed if you need to talk to the teachers.




School uniform reminder


Please ensure your child comes to school in correct uniform everyday. On PE and swimming days they can wear their PE kit to school but again, please ensure that they are wearing the correct school PE kit.






The expectation is that your child reads every night and an adult signs their reading record


Their reading record should then be brought in every day and their book changed regularly.












PE Day:

Toucans: Friday

Hummingbirds: Friday


Swimming Day is Friday for both classes
