Learning in Class 3

During Summer Term 2018, Class 3 will be learning about 'Brilliant Britain'.



Our literacy will be based around the topic 'Brilliant Britain'.  We will begin the term by focusing our literacy around the book 'The Queen's Hat'.  Our literacy outcomes will include:

  • Non-chronological reports.
  • Story writing.
  • Fact files.
  • Letter writing.
  • Diary entries.
  • Recounts.

  • Geometry - position and direction.
  • Statistics - pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and tables.
  • We will also be revisiting the four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.




  • The children will  be developing their skills to research a topic and carry out a presentation.
  • The children will be developing their skills using PowerPoint.


Please can the children bring their P.E. kits to school on Monday and leave them in school all week.  The children will have their P.E. sessions on a Monday and Friday.

  • Monday: Athletics
  • Friday: Gymnastics

Weekly homework tasks for children in class 3 include: learning and rehearsing their times tables and reading (three times per week recorded and signed by an adult in home-link diaries) please. Please ensure that your child has their home-link diary with them in school each day.

If you do possess skills, knowledge or resources which you feel you may like to offer in support of our teaching and learning this term, please do let us know!
