St. Simon Stock Class (Year 3)



Welcome back to your last term in Year 3.  

In English, we are writing through the theme of Harry Potter and will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.  If you have a copy of this book at home, feel free to bring it in!

In Maths, we will be working on shapes and measure as well as our methods for calculating.  

Our new Topic is Weather and in R.E we will explore 'Being a Christian'.  We'll also be getting ready for Sports Day too.

It is going to be a busy term!


Homework Information

Homework will be given out every Friday to be returned every Monday.  Spellings are given out on a Thursday and children are tested the following Tuesday. 

A great iPhone/iPad app you can personalise by typing in their weekly spellings to make practising fun is:

                Squeebles Spelling Test


Times tables are tested on Wednesday.  Children should practise their times tables facts regularly at home in order to progress.  At the end of Year 3 children must know all their 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables.

A useful website for practise is:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

There are also excellent iPad apps available such as:

                Squeebles Times Tables

                10 minute a day times tables.

 Please listen to your child read every night and thank you for your continued support with their spellings and times tables.
