Year 3M 2017 - 2018

Mr Murray

Welcome back,

Most importantly, Mrs Gill and I hope that you have all had a fantastic holiday and are all well rested. We have an incredibly busy year ahead but one that hopefully will be lots of fun too! Both of us have moved year groups this year so it will be fun for us all.

A big part of this year will be the transition from Infants to Juniors. There is a big step up in the work and expectations of the children but together we will support them as they settle into a different way of working. We appreciate any support from parents and please don’t hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns regarding your child.

Maths and Literacy will continue just like last year with 1 lesson of each per day and will form the core of our teaching. In addition to this we will spend extra time on handwriting and guided reading.


Please Please Please can you encourage your children to read at home as much as possible. This is vital to their success at school and will benefit them greatly. Even if it is only a small amount every day.

This half term we will begin with geography, looking at where we are in the world and how we would go about finding ourselves using a mix of digital and traditional methods.


Art and DT will focus on structure, creating frames for our work. This fits with our Van Gogh work, the intention to have a framed piece of art for your children to bring home to you. RE will see a focus of harvest and begin to look at the Old Testament stories from the bible.

Important Information

Your children will receive spellings to learn every week alongside a weekly piece of homework relating to that week’s work. In addition to this, there will be a termly learning log which is project based and gives you and your children a chance to be creative surrounding the topic.

We very much appreciate your support in ensuring homework is completed, it allows us to see how the children are coping with different topics and where we might need to work next.  Don’t forget READ READ READ.

All the best,

Mr Murray and Mrs Gill.
