Year 3

Dear Year 3,


We're finishing our topic on division now, but watch out! Fractions are next and we know from class how we will use multiplication and division to help us with this new topic. So, to that end, you are all primed and ready to become Times Table Rockstars!

You all have your login and user name and password and I know some of you have already had a go. If you have had problems, do not worry! The year 5's are going to buddy up with us on Monday next week to iron out any teething problems! Isn't that kind of them?


So in the meantime, have a go and we'll compare notes on Monday. Spellings test will run on Friday this week as usual.


I hope you have a happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldonsmiley




Thank you for all my lovely festive gifts! If the system worked, I hope you all received a thank you from me!


Welcome back after the Christmas holidays! It seems a while back now, but then again,we are well into the swing of bus stop division!! If your parents want to help you with this skill, get them to look at the Maths policy on the website! Some of you also took home hard copies to study!


Homework this week is on prefixes. Your sheets were all stuck in, but just to remind you, the work is due in on 14th January 2019.


Have a safe and happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldon



Here we are in to our last few days of Autumn term! I was so proud of you all at the pantomime. Our school really did shine out as well behaved children!

I have no doubt the carol concert will be equally successful and I look forward to seeing you there tomorrow, mums,dads, grandparents, neighbours and all!

No is Christmas soon after all!

Have a great weekend.

Mrs Sheldon


Dear Year 3,

It's definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well done on a beautiful Christingle service. Not a dry eye in the house!


Your homework is to make an application to be an elf! What would your name be? What would be your key skills!


Remember spellings for tomorrow!


Have a great weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


Another busy week, in which we started to look seriously at multiplication! Now we  are doing the grid method, you will understand why it is so important to know your times tables. Keep on practicing!!! Remember the top tips sheet you had in the front of your homework books? Test your parents, sing them, write them down backwards and forwards!


Next week we will continue with multiplication, so it will be of great help to you!

Well done on the Stonehenge homewrok. When it stops raining we will mark the tallest stone on the playground!


Have a good weekend.


Dear Year 3,


A massive thank you to Evan's dad, Mr Parker for coming in and sharing his amazing knowledge about the Stoneage! I know we all learned such a lot and were given food for thought about how we live our lives today. Thank you!


Your homework was on the possessive apostrophe! Remeber how it shows that something belongs to someone or something. 

Still a request out for some soil samples if possible as well please.


Next week we will be starting work on multiplication, so keep practicing your times tables at all times!


I hope you all have a great weekend.

Mrs Sheldon


Well done Year 3 for another busy week! Your Remembrance Letters were very moving and you all sung beautifully in assembly. Thank you for all your items for your homework.

If you can, please bring in a soil sample so that we can alanalyse soil from your garden in our Science Lesson next week. (Carefully contained in a sealed plastic bag)

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the Christmas Fayre. frown



Dear year 3,


At the end of the week, we welcome back our year 6 friends from Manor Adventure! We hope you've had a great time and we look forward to hearing all about it!


This weekend's homework is to gather some items, or pictures of items which make you 'you'! Imagine digging them up thousands of years from now. What would it tell the people of the future about you?


Don't forget to learn your spellings too.


Happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldon


PS Let's keep an eye on this possible dragon sighting next week..........frown 


Welcome Back after half-term!surprise



Dear Year 3,

Welcome back from your holiday! I hope you all had a lovely break. I imagine some of you may be going to fireworks displays so enjoy and keep safe!

Your homework was firework related and you need to know your times tables! See also if you can show someone at home how we've been doing column subtraction.

Happy weekend!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,

I told you all at the end of today how really proud I am of you all! So many of you are now understanding how Year 3 works and rising to the challenge!


Today, for example in History, so many of you were able to put yourselves into the life of a Stone Age child, thinking about the homes they may have lived in and how their lives might have been.


Next week, we will have a go at modelling the settlement of Star Carr in Yorkshire!


Your homework should already be in, but if it isn't, it's the conjunctions sheet.


Badgers! You're off to the forest on Monday!

Happy weekend

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 3,


Well done on another busy week! We have done a lot of work on mental addition ready for moving to written methods next week.

Your spellings will be tested tomorrow too!

Mrs Sheldon
