23rd March 2018

Dear Year 3,

Thank you for a fantastic production that all who saw it it so enjoyed! You have worked so hard and made it a real success.

Your reward is no spellings or times tables!

Enjoy the sunshine instead!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,

SO! Next week is the big performance so get some good sleep in this weekend!

There will be no times tables test due to the play.

Please just take time to learn the song words! Sing in the bath, in the shops, on the streets!!

Have a super weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,

Just so your parents know, homework will be handed out tomorrow as you had the session with Adam today and we ran out of time in the morning!

You have your spellings to learn and your x2,x4,x8 tables to keep you busy!

Also, tomorrow is our dress 'dress rehearsal' so please can all costumes be in. Thank you to all for your support in this.

Happy Wednesday evening!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


Thank you to those children who did learn the spellings they had identified as ones they needed to practice! Homework is important to help you move on with your learning as we discussed.


Luckily this weekend you have only your times tables to brush up on! Your x2,x4 x8! You will remember someone in our class saying how they were related!


New spellings will be issued on Monday.


That gives you a lot of time to treat your mums or other special ladies in your life on Mothering Sunday!


Happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,

I hope you all made the most of your snow day! As a result of not being in, we will do our x3 and x6's again next week as we didn't do the test! Also, you missed out on the homework I was going to set you on Friday! I will issue this next week instead. However, you all knew that on-going homework is to make sure you keep learning your song words for the play, along with any words you may also have to learn!

With the snow gone, we shall see you again on Monday!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


Thank you for an enjoyable week back! Please can you remember your £3 for World Book Day next week.

Your only Homework for the weekend is to learn your 3 x and 6 x tables, again from the point of view of division and multiplication.


Well done again on all the lovely volcanoes! You all earned a fantastic 3 housepoints for them.


Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Sheldon


Miss Wellington has a top tip!


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

Dear Year 3,


Welcome back after the half-term holiday! I hope you had a lovely break! We are tackling the subject of the use and value of money this week, so try to get some practical experience out with your family.


Today I set you homework to learn your 7 x tables but also looking at the division side of the equation! You have the sheet to help you!

Please, please carry on learning your song words and any spoken part you might have. The lyrics are on the Year 4 page, so no excuse for not knowing the tune!!


There will be new spellings next week.


Have a good week!

Mrs Sheldon



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

Dear Year 3,


Thank you all for a very enjoyable week of learning! We have really appreciated the newspapers, which have helped us focus on our style of writing for our recount. We will continue to use them to help us next week.


Your times tables for next week will be the x4 and x8. Look for the patterns again and think how you can link them to help you recall them!


Homework was to complete the comprehension on snakes!


From my classromm, it sounds as if the cinenight was a lot of fun, so thank you to all who helped.


Have a great weekend.


Mrs Sheldon

Dear year 3,

Sorry for the delay in posting this week, but I experienced technical difficulties! 

Your homework this week, was to bring in for Monday 22nd January, a newspaper article suitable for our age group, which we can use to explore when looking at the features of newspaper writing. You also had to be fraction detectives, looking for where we use fractions in everyday life. Again, this was due in on Monday.


Well done on your learning the lines for the play. We definitely have some budding actors! As you know, the main parts will go to Year 4 children ( your turn next year!), but year 3 remain a really important part of the production in terms of the singing and some acting roles throughout.

Hope you have had good weekends. Nearly enough snow!


See you on Tuesday.

Mrs Sheldon

Look at our Advent Calendar at Stowe! A lot of hard work but really worth it! Well done everybody involved! A special thank you to Mrs Kayll for her vision!

Dear Year 3,

Well done on your 9 x tables and all your hard work learning how to do the grid method of multiplication! Next week we'll go back to looking at our x8 and x 4's again.


We will be starting to think about the Christian time of Advent next week also, as we prepare our class Advent calendar!

Have a great weekend.

Mrs Sheldon


PS Your Homework is due in on Monday! You are thinking of an object and giving it human characteristics! Personification!

Dear Year 3,


Thank you for your hard work learning the 7 x table this week! That is a challenge as it doesn't have a 'friend', unlike say the x2's and x4's. This week you need to learn your x9, so we have a lot of times tables in our heads as we set off with using the grid method to multiply 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers.


Your Homework this weekend is to fill in the form on your hobbies you do outside of school. Remember to plan what you are going to write and ask someone politely to check your spellings! Then write it up in your best hand-writing!


I hope I will see some of you at the school fayre tomorrow. I had my eye on some of the scrummy cakes you brought in today!


Happy weekend

Mrs Sheldon 

Dear Year 3,

Thank you for all your contributions to the Remembrance Service. The bigger questions, which were read out so beautifully, were the result of all your hard work, thinking like philosophers and looking beyond the surface issues of war.


This week, your times tables test will be on  the 7 times table. In maths next week, we will be starting multiplication, so our efforts in class will be on the x4 and x8's, along with doubling and halving. So, make sure you learn the 7's at home!


Have a happy Remembrance weekend and well done again.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear year 3 philosophers,

Well done on an amazing piece of work on Wednesday. Working collaboratively with year 4, we really started to think like philosophers and got to 'meet' some of the most famous Greek philosophers too!


No homework this weekend, but remember your spellings and also the x3 and x6 tables!


Happy Bonfire night and remember to keep safe!


Mrs Sheldonsmiley
