Teacher: Mrs Burleton

Welcome to the Meerkats Class!

Year 3 is the first year of Key Stage 2 and we encourage children to enjoy and embrace every learning opportunity. The highlights of the year include our seaside trip, where we get to explore the Jurassic coast, discovering the different Gods through Ancient Greek myths and find out how volcanos are formed. We can't wait for you to join us.

Weekly spellings will be sent home on a Tuesday with spelling books. Please return the books on a Monday morning, when children will be tested on 10 of these. Books are not to be written in at home, but are provided for you to see weekly scores. To practice these, you could ask your child to show you rainbow writing, pyramid writing or get them to write the words in sentence.


Times tables underpin the Maths Curriculum in Year 3, please help your child become secure with their 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10 times tables.


Children should read at least 4 times a week at home. They will have a weekly reading task to complete; this will be in their reading journal.
