Summer Term 2017

smileyWelcome back! Hope you all had a great Easter Holiday! smiley

I can't believe it is the Summer Term already! 


This term, our topic is Road Trip USA.

Buckle up, sunglasses on – we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A!

Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home.

Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions: Does your hotel have a pool?

Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions.

Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four.

It’s going to be a long ride, so put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair – we’re off!



This term, Year 3 will be having P.E lessons on Monday and Thursday. As it is the Summer Term we hope to do most of our session outside.




Reading is an essential skill. In order to continue making good progress, it is important that children continue to read every day and that they still read to an adult. This will help develop their fluency and expression, ability to read unfamiliar words correctly and their comprehension skills. Please could you continue to hear your child read regularly and sign their reading record as I will be awarding house points for their efforts.



This year, the children will continue to doing RWI spellings each day. They will be logging new spellings into their Spelling Logs each week. These need to be practised at home regularly and when they can spell them confidently, the spellings for that unit, signed by a parent. In addition to the words they log they must learn the red words which are listed at the back of the spelling log.


Other Events

The children can also look forward to our St.George's Day activities, May pole dancing and the Spring Fayre.
