Reading record entries

The most important thing every Year 3 must make sure they do is read to an adult every night. You need to be able to read well in order to succeed in all subjects we study at school - there's even a lot of reading in maths. Discuss your reading book using the comprehension skills questions in your reading record. Reading records should be brought to school every day. Written entries should be made at least three times a week.


Reading comprehension

Your child will complete a comprehension in their own CGP book each week.  



Homework is set on Google Classroom on Wednesdays and should be completed in your homework book, which stays at home. A photo of it must be uploaded by the following Wednesday morning. Each week the written task will involve writing sentences containing each of the spelling words. Each sentence will practise a taught grammar skill. The spellings word must be learnt for the tests that take place each Wednesday. 



Numbots / TTRS

Every child should commit at least 25 minutes a week to Numbots. Children will learn faster if they do 5 minutes a day – rather than 25 minutes once a week. Well done to those children who have completed Numbots and moved onto Times Tables Rock Stars. Our class aim is to make sure we have all finished Numbots before the Easter holidays.

This term, we’ll be having our first look at poetry, taking a closer look at some of Carol Ann Duffy’s poems. 



Michael Morpurgo’s The Pied Piper of Hamelin will be the inspiration for our writing. Through this text, we'll learn a range of spelling, grammar and punctuation skills that will be applied to a range written work.

We’ll start our topic of Animals including Humans and then move onto Plants. 


The question we’ll be answering this term will be: What do the miracles of Jesus teach? We’ll consider what constitutes a miracle and consider the difference between a miracle and magic. 


During this half-term, we’ll be looking at multiplication and division, and then looking more closely at measurement. 

If your child doesn’t already know how to tell the time with an analogue clock, please keep practising with them. All children are expected to be able to tell the time by the end of Year 2.
