One Childhood - One Chance

15.3.24 Year 3 Weekly News

This week in Year 3....


In English this week, we rewrote sections of our text, ‘Revolt Against the Romans’ including emotive and descriptive language.

Next week, we have two exciting visitors, including the author of our text, Tony Bradman and one of our Year 3 parents has kindly offered to share their journalistic expertise ahead of our attempts at newspaper writing.


This week, we explored non-unit fractions (fractions with 1 as the numerator).

Next week, we will continue to look at fractions, exploring non-unit fractions and finding fractions of given quantities.


Thematic Curriculum

This week we continued our work on Boudicca, creating Wanted posters for the warrior queen and learnt about a range of Roman gods.

Next week, we will consider the ways the Romans changed Britain ahead of inviting you in to see books and work on Thursday afternoon.



- Please read with your child at least 3 times a week.

- Children have now been given their log-in details for Times Table Rock Stars. They should be playing this at least 3 times a week to build their confidence and fluency with times table knowledge.

- Children have been given a ZPD to help them identify the correct books for their reading level. Once your child has read their book, they will need to complete a quiz on it before getting a new one. These quizzes can be done either in school or at home on Accelerated Reader using the log-in codes found in their reading records.
