Thank you for your engagement and creativity last term. Everybody had a wonderful time participating in Book Week and Environmental Art Week and created some thought provoking and inspiring art work.  We also enjoyed sharing the homework projects. There were some fantastic fossils and fascinating geological surveys of the local area. Well done to everyone who found the Millennium Rocks!    

We hope you find the information below useful for this half term. This information will help you support your child at home with the organization of their week and their learning at home. 

The homework will be due in on Monday 20th May. The Homework Assembly takes place on Thursday 23rd May. 

Key Times 


Homework will be set every half term. Your child will be asked to work on a number of projects, designed to enrich the learning taking place in school. This approach to homework has been designed to enable you and your child to work together in a creative way and to develop a love of learning. Please see the homework document for Summer. 


In Year 3, the PE day is Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit on this day. 

Key Times 

The school gates open at 8:30 in the morning. In Key Stage 2, the children will be dismissed at the end of the day at 15:25. 




Read it 

Research it 

Make it 

Year 3 will be using a range of books written by Anthony Browne as their stimulus for literacy this half term. 

Your task is to read a book (or as many as possible) by the same author. 

Anthony Browne has written some great illustrated stories such as: 


Silly Billy 

Willy the Wimp 

The Tunnel 

My Dad 


In Science we will be learning about the functions of different parts of flowering plants; exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth; investigating the way in which water is transported within plants and exploring the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal. 

To celebrate the wonder of plants, we will be having a photography exhibition. Your challenge is to take an AWARD WINNING plant-photograph and present it beautifully for our exhibition.

As part of our IPC topic, Treasures, we will be learning about a famous Roman, Julius Caesar, researching his links to Britain after invading these islands in the 1st century BC.  

Your task is to create a Roman Costume. You should research how different Romans dressed and make your clothes and accessories.  

Will you be a: Patrician (politicians and military men), a Plebeian (farmers, artists, workers) or a Slave? 

The Roman Parade will take place on Tuesday 21st May.  


Practise it

 Spend some time practising the skills we are learning in school:  



  • Adding and subtracting 2 and 3 digit numbers using the short column method. 

  • Multiplying using the short column method. 

  • Recalling 3, 4, and 8 times tables.                                                                  


  • Spelling the first 200 key words. 

  • Reading fluently and with expression.                                                     

  • Handwriting. 

 Anthony Brown’s stories contain many hidden messages and morals. Some of the issues that he talks about important to children such as bullying, family problems or loneliness.  


Your task is to write your own story that has a message or moral. 


Think about; 


What is the message or moral? 

What is your story about? 

Who are the characters? (People, animals or both.) 

Where is it set? 

Linked to the Make it challenge, your task is to research, design and label your Roman costume.
