Assalamu’Alaikum Year 3

Welcome to Summer 2!

I hope you are rested and ready to do some amazing learning in the last term of Year 3. InSha’Allah we are ready to carry on being superb hard workers. Please do not hesitate to contact me or speak to me if you have any questions.


What we are learning this Year/Term


In English we will be reading ‘Gregory Cool’ by Caroline Binch. During our lessons this term we are using a range of writing methods to develop and extend our understanding of the story. We will be writing a diary entry, a letter, making a travel guide and many more exciting lessons.

Guided Reading

In Year 3 we will be reading ‘Mr Stink’ by David Walliams. Through learning new vocabulary, making predictions about the story, retrieving information and summarising what they have read, we will be developing their understanding of the text being read.

It is important that your child also reads at home everyday. Please ensure your child reads at least 15 minutes everyday and listen to them read. We encourage children to read a wide range of books. Please let me know if your child does not have access to suitable reading material. Children are also able to join local libraries which are free.


We will be looking at and developing children’s understanding of angles, lines and shapes and perimeter. We will be using a variety of methods to help consolidate children’s learning and also use concrete materials to help with visualising the methods. Please ensure children continue practicing their times tables at home to help consolidate their learning. They can use the timetables website which they have all been given logins to.


For computing,  children will be exploring Lego Wedo and how to use coding to make things move.


In Science, Year 3 will be looking at what plants need. In this unit children will explore what plants need to grow well. They will compare how plants grow in different soils and explore how fertilisers can be used to improve growth. Children will investigate the amount of water needed to help a leafy pot plant grow well. They will also investigate how space affects plant growth by comparing how well grass seeds grow with more or less space. They will use what they have learned to grow a mystery plant from seed. Children will use the results from their investigations to produce a helpful hints and tips card to describe what helps plants grow better.


Year 3 will be studying Geography for the Spring term. We will be developing our knowledge on maps and how to use them and investigating the local area by collecting data on how Londoners travel to work. The children will collect data to analyse and present their findings.


P.E. will be on Tuesday. Please ensure that your child is logging on and participating in the lesson.
