Summer term – ‘Belonging’

Our Summer Term theme is ‘Belonging, inspired by a range of engaging texts that will be used across our school curriculum. Many of the texts that we are using include stories full of exciting adventures, the quest for true belonging, embracing and celebrating difference and promoting acceptance and community.

Our Summer Bookshelf: –

  • The Barnabus Project
  • Change sings
  • The Nothing to See Here Hotel
  • The Suitcase
  • My shadow is pink

Important information for Year 3:

  • This year, we will have outdoor PE on a Thursday and Indoor PE on a Monday afternoon. Children will come into school wearing their correct PE uniform on these days.
  • This year we will visit the school library one afternoon during the week so please remember to have your library book in your school bag. Please also remember to have your Reading Record in your bag each day.
  • Home Learning will be sent home on a Wednesday, due for the following Monday. Spellings will be sent home at the start of the term and are tested in groups of 10 each Wednesday, so please ensure your Spelling book is in your bag for this.
  • We would encourage pupils to read every day to develop their love for reading and practise their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 Times Tables at home to ensure they have a secure understanding and recall of these facts to support their learning in school. You can practise using TT RockStars.

Our teaching team includes Miss Ratcliffe (3LR) and Miss Bailey (3GA) who are the class teachers. We will also be taught by Mrs Van Spelde and Miss Cheetham on a Monday and Mrs Hollingworth is our year group Teaching Assistant.
