Hello Year 3,


Can you believe this is our final week of Year 3?! This year has gone so fast and I can’t believe it is time for you all to move to Year 4! It has been a very tough year with lots of unexpected obstacles thrown our way, but I am so proud of all of you and how you have responded to this tricky situation. I am so proud of how hard you worked during our time in school and also how hard you have been working during your time learning from home. You have shown me how sensible, trustworthy and overall amazing you all are and I know you are now ready to take on the next challenge. I have loved teaching you all this year and will miss you all very much!

I have written a shorter list of home learning tasks for this week, and beneath it I have added some challenges you should try over the summer holidays so that you are ready to impress Mr Smith in September! Take care and have a fantastic summer break.

Challenges for the summer break


Over the holidays it would be a great idea to do a bit of extra learning so you are ready to blow Mr Smith’s socks off in September! Have a go at some of these summer challenges;-


  • The Summer Reading Challenge is back! I am encouraging you to do as much reading as possible over the summer. All you have to do is register and be ready to read 6 fun books over the holidays.Please read about this year’s ‘Silly Squad’ challenge here.


  • You can create a booklet all about you for your new teachers! You can use the template I’ve added or you could create a booklet of your own. For My New Teacher Booklet


  • Master your times tables! Learn all of your times tables off by heart so that you can beat Mr Smith’s score! You need to know ALL of your times tables by the end of Year 4 anyway so why not get a head start?


  • Learn to tell the time on both an analogue clock and a digital clock. Telling the time is an important life skill, not just something you learn in school! You need to be able to tell the time in your daily life for lots of different things so why not learn this important skill over the holidays?
