Autumn Term

Page updated 20th September 2022


In Art this half term we are developing our drawing and painting skills. We have looked at Stone Age paintings in the Chauvet Cave and Lauscaux Cave and learnt about a street artist called Banksy. We would like to share with you some of our skills practice, when we drew a woolly mammoth.

Wow! We are so impressed with the way the children have managed the transition into the Juniors and settled into life in Year 3. The have quickly settled into our routines and expectations and are full of enthusiasm for their learning.

Hopefully, you’ve heard all about our Warren Park Circus day, held to introduce our writing unit on ‘Leon and the Place Between’. The children had great fun walking on bucket stilts, juggling, using ribbon batons and eating sweets.

It’s not all fun in Year 3 though, we have also been busy working on our new History unit looking at the Stone Age and our Science unit looking at the forces of pushing and pulling.
To support your child with all the hard work they are doing in school, we are hoping that you can support at home. We will be sending your child home this week with a copy of their spellings to learn and a book to practice in; these will be tested in school on a Monday and new ones given out for the following week.

Your child will also be bringing home a Times Table Record Book. In the Juniors, we ask that the children practice their multiplication tables several times a week. This can be done on paper, by playing games, using Times Table Rock Stars or any online educational games such as Topmarks. The children have been made aware of activity sheets n class that they can help themselves to for practicing at home.

We are asking that the children bring into school both their Home Reading and Times Table Record books every day and they will be checked and celebrated at the end of the week on a Friday.

Reminder: PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please send your child in wearing appropriate kit, shorts or tracksuit bottoms, white or blue school t-shirt and sensible foot wear.

Please ensure that your child has their school jumper or fleece with them especially as it gets colder.
Please come and see us if there is anything we can help with.

Thank you for your support.
