Year 3


Our class is named after the author Michael Morpurgo.
My name is Mr Hollinrake and I teach year 3, as well as the wonderful Miss Smith who teaches year 3 on a Tuesday morning.

Please make sure to keep an eye out on Facebook and Twitter for any important letters or information regarding the class. I will keep updating this as well as sending any other important information out via Teachers2parents.


Your child will receive spellings each week which they will practise both at home and in school ready for a weekly spelling test in school. The children can continue to use TT rockstars to practise their times tables. The children should also read every night and please remember to sign this in your child's diary.


If you have any questions please write a note in your child's communication diary. You can also contact me via the school office or on the Year 3 email address:


In Literacy this half term we will be exploring the text 'Return' and writing our own narratives and recount based on the text.


Please make sure you're reading with your child each night and sign their communication diary when you've heard them read. Children on accelerated reader will change their own books after they complete the quiz in school. Children should be aiming to do at least a book a week on accelerated reader (dependent on book length).


In maths this half term we will be focusing on fractions and money and pictograms and different methods to complete this.

If your child has a Doodle Maths login they can access the page here.


This term in science our topic is Plants. We will be dissecting different parts of a plant and understanding what plants need to survive.

Our P.E. days are a Tuesday and a Friday this term. We will be looking at tennis and cricket. But remember that because of Active 30 the children will need their P.E. kits everyday.

To develop the learners of tomorrow and equip them with the skills to flourish and succeed for "nothing is impossible with God"
