Year 3 - Pearl

A very warm welcome back and Happy New Year to parents and children. We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas holiday!

We want to say a big thank you for joining us at St James’ Church for the carol service at the end of last term. It was great to have so many of you there and it was a lovely evening. We also want to say a BIG thank you for the thoughtful gifts and cards that we received. 

Feel free to let us know ways we can support you and your child with their learning.

Many thanks

Mrs Olejnik and Mrs Cameron

The topic this term is Active Planet!


The children will be learning all about the planet we live on including rocks, fossils and volcanoes.

In class this term we will be reading the text ‘The Abominables’. To link in with this the children will be creating some fiction writing of their own.


As the children were so immersed in dragons last term, we didn’t fully explore it.  We will be using it as a stimulus for non-fiction writing.


Please let us know if you are available to come and hear readers at school. Parent readers really do make such a difference to the development of the children’s reading.


We will continue to send home spellings so that the children can learn them in a variety of ways.

We will also continue using the Maths Times Table Rock-stars.
