Term 2 Autumn 2019

Our project is called ‘How long have you had the pain?’ It is a Science based project in which the pupils will learn all about types of teeth, how to take care of teeth, the need for healthy food and the human digestive system. 

If you have any resources at home to support our learning then please bring them in  to be shared with the class – story books, non fiction books, models. toys  etc. 

We would also love to welcome in any visitors to come and talk about their jobs if related to diet, dentistry, health etc. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to do this. 

Here is the Project Web for this Term’s project.  Where possible we teach cross curricular themes and link all of our learning together.  

A copy of our Year 3 Arithmetic Methods Booklet can be found here:

Rights Respecting Schools

West Town Lane Academy is a Rights Respecting School. This means that all of the children are made aware of their rights as outlined by the UN convention. It is important that they understand that these are what they are ALL entitled to have and no-one can take these away from them. Every class has a charter outlining some of these rights. They look great so keep an eye out as you are around the classrooms.

General Information

Every day, the children will have an English and Maths lesson as a whole class. Afternoons will be filled with foundation subjects, all set within the context of our current project.

The children will be changing their own own books when required.  Now that their books are longer we encourage children to not rush through them and even try re-reading a book before changing it. They should be able to recall the story’s events, describe the characters and identify language patterns such as rhyming in the book they are reading. Please try to listen to your child read regularly and record this in their reading record – this can even be for only 10 minutes.  Each week, the children in each class who have read at least three times at home will have their names displayed on a reward chart and celebrated.  

Homework will be given out every Friday, to be returned back every  Wednesday (or before). The children will be required to complete a Maths and English challenge given in their homework books, which will relate to the learning the children have been focusing on during the week.

The children have been given weekly spellings to learn for their test ( As in Year 2).  Please can children also practise the Year 3 Exception words given out at Parent’s Evening. 

Weekly Times tables tests (Following from Year 2)  are continuing this term also. 

Please ensure children arrive at school with all belongings clearly labelled with their name and class. In year 3 children no longer have fruit provided therefore they may bring  healthy snack or 50 p for morning break time to spend in the Tuck shop. 

 If you need to speak with the class teacher then the end of day is less busy and we will always try to be available.  Obviously morning times as the pupils are coming in to school can be rather hectic.  Occasionally due to meetings this will not be possible. You may also arrange a meeting with us through the office.

Here is a PDF of the powerpoint from the Back To School night for your reference and if anyone missed it.
