Welcome back for the spring term.

Class Teacher  = Ms Collier

Learning Assistant = Mrs Jackson


We hope everyone had a restful and a relaxing break and enjoyed spending time with friends and family. As we start the Spring Term, there are a number of changes to our weekly timetable. These will include our PE days, which are now on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Also as a class we are learning how to play the drums and other musical instruments during our music lessons.


In the Spring Term, we are continuing to focus on learning the times tables and weekly spellings, both can be found in your child’s home school diary. We do encourage the children to read at least 3 times a week.. Reading at home is so important and the children really appreciate receiving certificates in assembly for their efforts. As well as this, there is an achievement scheme for learning times table facts. We look forward to your children taking home lots of certificates this term!

In English, your children will be reading The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl, an exciting adventure about a greedy, arrogant crocodile, who has a peculiar taste for small children. They are going to love it! 


In Numeracy, we will focus on basic maths skills involving counting, times tables and the four operations of number. During our topic sessions, the children will be learning how to use an atlas and a variety of geography skills which leads us into learning about the Romans.


PE is still an important lesson and we strongly encourage  that the children have their Ghyllgrove PE kits so that they can join in with all the fun! Our PE kit is a white t-shirt with red shorts and trainers. Children with long hair must have their hair tied back and no jewellery can be worn during P.E.


If you have any questions please ask :)




Homework will be given out Friday and is due in on Tuesday. Year 3 teachers will be explaining each weeks focus.. Children will be given weekly spellings and are to continue with their times table learning.


Look out for more information on the curriculum that we will be studying over the course of the year in order to support your child as much as possible. Also, look out for any letters sent home or messages in the Home School Diary.
