Year 3

Dear Year 3,

So we now approach our final last two full weeks as year 3's together and we shall make the most of it!

If you are a Blue Tit, you will have Forest School on the 9th July as you missed last week.

You do have some spellings to learn from two weeks ago, which I will test you on!

There will be no more times tables tests now, as we have The Living Rainforest next Friday and Sports Day the week after. However, don't forget to keep learning them whenever you can!

No homework this week. 

Have a safe and happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,

It was great to hear you worked hard with Mis Rowe on division! Well done.

I so enjoyed our Art day today and your interpretation of Henri Rousseau's Surpris was amazing!

You have spellings to learn, but no homework as I was away at Everdon!

Just come and enjoy the school fayre. I'll see you at the bouncy castle!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


We all owe Miss Wellington a great big thank you for organising the science week. We dabbled with onion cells, looked at X-rays of many animals and met Wendy the dog! At Stowe, we made super rockets and set them off! I think we realised how great Science can be!


I said to generally learn your times tables you are less confident in, as we will be doing a maths assessment over the coming next two weeks.

New spellings will be given out on Monday. Don't forget to look in your cupboards at home for food stuffs from the rainforest! Try to think of the ones we looked at in class! That work is in for Monday.


Have a great weekend. Remember Miss Rowe is in covering Year 3 Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, as I am at Everdon with the Year 4 class!



Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,

It's been a great week back and we have made good progress with our work on fractions. With the World Cup, you'll hear a lot of talk of fractions, such as 'it's a game of two halves', 'no quality in the final third', or at least that's what I hear being said!


We said a fond farewell to Miss Rowe today, who has been a fantastic teacher for us whilst training. We congratulate her for achieving her  qualified teacher status and wish her much success in her future teaching! Luckily for us, it will be at St James and St John!


Your homework this week is to have a general look over your Year 3 spellings, as we will have an assessment of your learning next week. Look for spelling patterns and ways of spelling different sounds.


The times tables next week will be the 7's and 9's, again from the division point of view.


Have a lovely weekend everybody!


Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


Welcome back after half-term! I hope you all had a lovely break!

This week's homework is to write a letter to a friend about a book you like! Use the planning sheets to help you. This is due in on Monday 11th June.

There are no spellings, as we will be doing a whole class spelling test next week on all Year 3 words.

Your times tables for next week will be the x4 and x 8, but again looking at them from the point of view of division. Think of sharing out!

I hope you have happy weekends.

Mrs Sheldonsurprise

Dear Year 3,


Happy Half term!




I hope you all have a very lovely holiday! Remember you will be using your time to search for those 3D shapes around the house. For your spellings, we will revisit the words we have learned through this last half term.


Our times tables test will be the x3 and x6.


Keep learning! And don't forget it will be the turn of the Blue Tits on Monday 4th June 2018 for Forest School.


Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


We have made a good start to our Roman soldiers, but the battle is a bit one -sided at the moment, so we must get those finished! Your research on the Roman Gods was amazing! The quality of work was very high!


Spellings test as ever on Monday and you will have a general times tables test next week, covering the 2,3,4,6 and 8 times tables!


I do hope you enjoy the weekend and the Royal Wedding celebrations!heart


Mrs Sheldon

PS Robins be ready for Forest School on Monday!

Dear Year 3,


Thank you so much for all your fabulous Celtic warriors! They are now on the wall, poised for battle - as soon as we get our Romans ready too!

Your homework is to reasearch two Roman gods.Present the information bhowever you like! Maybe even a shape poem!

Spellings on Monday, x12 test on Friday and it's the turn of th Blue Tits for Forest School Monday, so don't forget your kit!

Have a great weekend!


Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


Well done on another great week. At last the weather is letting us get out to do the run and we clocked up a very presentable 321 laps over the course of this term so far!


Your homework is to complete your Celtic warrior. Remember how we talked in terms of the earthy colours! If you need any extra colours, you could take from my special pot at the back of the classroom.


For our times tables, we will look at the x4 and x8 from the point of view of fractions. For example, 1/4 of 12.


It's a long weekend and the weather promises to be hot!


Mrs Sheldon

Miss Rowe

Thursday 3rd May 

We had a fantastic morning, learning some new skills on the skateboards. We were very supportive of each other, and ensured that our partners were confident on the skateboard before letting them go. Some of us conquered our fears, and I'm sure Year Three will all agree that it was lots of FUN! smiley

Many thanks to the PTFA!



Dear Year 3,


Our second week done and we've tackled short division with great enthusiasm! Well done!

Next week your times tables are the x9 and x 11. Again, we will be looking at them from the point of view of division and multiplication. 

Your homework is the comprehension, due in Monday. Spellings tests will again be done in the afternoon of Monday.

It's the turn of the Robins for Forest School so please don't forget your kit!

Happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Miss Rowe



Miss Wellington has a top tip!


There are some interesting facts on this website if you want to get ahead on volcanoes.



Well done, you have all been very busy over half- term and produced some fantastic Volcanoes!




Friday 9th February


I hope you all have a fantastic half- term. Make sure that you make 2D or 3D volcano ready to show on the first Tuesday back. Also use this week to learn your song lyrics!

Friday 2nd February 2018


Dear Year 3,

Well, we made a good start on our play, which we will be performing at the end of the Spring Term. If you have been given speaking parts so far, please take time to learn them. More speaking parts are yet to be given out!


Remember to do your spellings. There is a lot to learn this week, as you need to know the prefix rule too! Homework is to hunt down those capital letters on the sheet. Please can it be in for Monday 5th February. Your times table to learn is the x7.


As we go into our last week of this half term, we will be looking at telling the time, so see if you can ask an adult to test you every now and again!


Happy weekend


Mrs Sheldon
