NEW GORS LOGOYear 3 Newsletterbutterfly


Welcome back, I hope you had a great holiday. We are all ready for the exciting new half term. Here are a few reminders and information for you.

This half term we will continue to explore Dragons; the children are really enjoying the topic and have completed some amazing diary writing, which is now proudly displayed in our classroom! We will now go on to write persuasive adverts and reports on various dragon-related topics including creating maps of the Isle of Berk (the dragon island in ‘How to train a dragon’).

In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication, division, fractions and symmetry.





hildren have a choice of engaging ‘Pick ‘n Mix’ homework activities to complete each week. Homework will be given out on Friday each week and should be returned by the following Wednesday.



All children are expected to bring their reading books to school every day as we listen to the children read throughout the week. Reading books are changed on a Friday. We have guided reading sessions, which is where we read as a group. It is important that you try to listen to your child read every night. If you want to make a comment, please write in their reading records.


Times tables

Please support your child to learn their tables at home. We can advise you on useful websites to use too. The children really enjoy using J2Blast, which they can use at home!



Your child will be given spellings every Friday to take home and learn ready for their spelling test the following week. Please could you encourage your child to learn their spellings at home.


P.E is every Monday. Please make every effort to ensure your child has a P.E. kit on this day. A t-shirt, shorts/joggers and trainers. We are focusing on tag rugby this half term.

At lunchtime, the children choose to eat either a packed lunch provided by yourself, or a school meal. School meals must now be paid for using the online portal sQuid. Please contact the school office for further information.



The children will continue to use HWB. Don’t forget that it can be used for work at home.

Class Dojo

Please keep an eye on this, as important messages and reminders will be sent out.

Follow us on Twitter to keep up with school information.
