Dear Parents, 


Welcome to Year 3 and Kangaroo Class! We hope that you have all had a lovely summer holiday.  

In each term, your child will be following exciting and engaging topics which are as follows: 


Autumn term – The Stone Age... and beyond 

Spring term – Mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes 

Summer term – Ancient Egypt 


This term our topic is the Stone Age... and beyond. We will be looking at the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and identify how life has changed since then! 



The children should be reading their book every evening for ten minutes. We are happy for them to read the schools book or home books. Please ensure your child records what they have read in their reading journal. We have been keeping a class chart and the children receive a sticker when they have read four times in a week. The children who read four times a week will receive extra play time on a Friday afternoon.  



The children should be reading four times per week, playing on TTRS four times a week and completing any homework sent home. Homework will be sent home on a Thursday and is due in on a Wednesday. 



Please could you ensure that your child’s uniform, particularly jumpers, is all appropriately named, even if you simply write their initials on the label this will allow us to reunite them with their rightful owners! 


P.E. Kits 

Please ensure your child has a P.E. kit in school. PE days will be Monday and Wednesday.  


Kind regards, 

Miss Knowles
