Year 3 homework letters 2018-19

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have had some parents asking how the Yellow book is used in school and at home.

Firstly, the reading journal (yellow book) needs to go home daily so your child can complete their reading log nightly at the back of the book. This book is important because they also complete school work in it (at the front) so it must be in school daily.

The front of the book has school work but also has a cover, write, check spelling sheet so that your child can practise their spellings nightly and as regularly as you would like.

Handwriting On the back of this sheet for this term there will be handwriting homework. Please encourage your child to complete and hand it in on Wednesdays with their homework (green book).             

Maths Test your child with their x2, x4 and x8 tables.

Science Topic

We would like your child to research one of our topic scientists this weekend. This can be instead of the normal ideas for homework tasks. These are the scientists we are currently learning about:

Barbara McClintock (1902 – 1992)      Joseph Banks (1743 – 1820)     Gregor Mendel (1822 -1884)

Carl Linnaeus (1707 – 1778)     George Forrest (1873 – 1932)

Thank you for all your support and have a lovely weekend- the Year 3 team

National Poetry Day was on Thursday 4th October 2018

 Many of the Year 3 children would like an extra weekend to learn a poem to recite in class.


This anthology book is filled with lots of different types of poetry written by many different poets. If you have a favourite, please come and tell Miss Frois and we could share it with the school in worship. Enjoy!! Scan the code to get your free bedtime poem.
