Puffins PE days are Monday and Thursday, therefore children should come into school in PE kit on these days. 




The children should be reading five nights a week. Reading records will be collected and signed every Wednesday. 


Children will be given a termly homework booklet, which will include their spellings as well as arithmetic questions. 


Times tables are an important part of learning in Year 3. Your child can practice their times tables using the Times Tables Rock Stars website. 

Week 3 - 


This week in computing the children have explored how digital devices have changed the way that we work. For example, we spoke about how many people used to draw pictures onto paper and canvas. However, now people such as architects, draw pictures using technology. The children had a go at drawing pictures on the Freeform app on the ipads to create their own pictures. All of the children created a masterpiece which they all seemed to be really proud of!

Week 2 - 


This week in Puffin class we have been practicing our place value knowledge. The children had a very  enjoyable maths lesson where they used lots of practical resources like base 10 and counters, to make numbers on the place value chart! They challenged their partner to make a three-digit number as quickly as possible - there was a lot of competition in the classroom during this lesson! 

Week 1 - 


This week in English the children have been learning about different types of poems and the features within them. To begin our learning journey we performed poems for one another!



Term 1 and 2 – Ancient Britain


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?

Experience life without modern tools and luxurious home comforts – would you survive? In our topic we will discover how people evolved from hunter gatherers to farmers and the beliefs these prehistoric warriors held. We will also investigate where and why humans settled in the places they made home and how some of these still exist in modern times.
