Year 3 - Saracens

Weekly Update (Week ending 14.02.2020)


I can't believe that we have come to another half-term break! Everyone has worked so hard and we've produces some fantastic work. 

In English, we have enjoyed producing our own narrative based on Leon and the Place Between.  The children have worked extremely hard and have been really creative!

Year 3 have come to the end of their topic in Maths and will move on to a new unit of learning after half term.

Therefore, there are no snips of the methods used this week.  Instead use the time to revise times tables.


In Science we created our own switches to test in an experiment which we carried out and recorded ourselves. We have also enjoyed our DT topic building something linked to our English (look out for your shoeboxes on celebration evening!)


There are no home learning or spellings, but please really focus on reading and times tables! I have given your home learning books out in case you want to tell or show me anything about your half term. 


It has been lovely to award so many badges on Marvellous Me this half term. Please remember to sign up, if you have not already done so, in order to receive updates about our learning and your child's in-class achievements.


MPL now has its own twitter account - this is a great way to keep up to date with everything that is going on in school.

Best wishes, 

Miss Silva


Next week ……...




After half term we will be starting a whole school unit of narrative writing to celebrate book week. 




After half term we will be starting our unit on telling the time. 




After half term we will be exploring sound and vibrations.  




In History, Geography and Art we will continue to build on our knowledge of the Anglo-Saxons. 

We will also explore some art linked to music. 




Talk about clocks and time with your family! Practice telling the time on different clocks, and include AM or PM. 


Homework (to be handed in on Wednesday)

Reading should be recorded in the calendar section of the reading diary - none of the other sections are necessary. Simply open the calendar to the date you read with your child, and write their book title with your signature. 


Homework for this half-term will be given out in the first week back. 

Homework and Spellings go out on a Friday, and homework books are collected in on a Wednesday. When you practice your spellings for the week, use a page in your homework book (the green one!). When you do SAS (spellings and sentences), choose 5 of your spelling words to put into sentences - one or two per sentence. The sentences don't have to be related!


The next spellings will be given out in the first week back.


Spellings for Year 3
