Newsletter 21.1.21

This week the children have finished their work on “the lighthouse”. They have composed fantastic diary entries and formal letters from the lighthouse keeper. I have been really impressed with the quality of work and I’m proud at how the class has continued to push themselves during lockdown! Speaking of pushing ourselves several students have been completing reading and PE challenges every day to keep both their minds and bodies active during this difficult time. It’s great to see the ingenious ways pupils have managed to complete challenges in their own home! In English we have begun a new online clip named “the Dreamgiver” and in Maths we have begun to learn about money. We have continued our Ancient Egyptians topic by practicing our hieroglyph skills and completed fact files about Ancient Egyptian gods.


Newsletter 14.1.21

It has been fantastic to see so many students accessing online work and live lessons this week. In Maths, children have been recapping what they learnt last term and multiplying and dividing 2 digit numbers by 1 digit. In English, children studied a video clip named “the lighthouse”. Children have described the lighthouse using their senses and developed new openers using DADWAVERS. They have also been hard at work on our new app “Spelling Shed” perfecting their spellings. This term our topic is the Ancient Egyptians. So far we have learnt about Egyptian life and their gods. We have also written gruesome instructions on how to make a mummy! The children have enjoyed learning about the Ancient Egyptians and I look forward to continuing this topic throughout the next term.

September 2020

Welcome back to Brandling!

Hello boys and girls,

I hope you've all had a fantastic summer and you're ready for the challenges ahead in Year 3!

I can't wait to get started and back into our daily routines in school. 

Year 3 will be fun of fantastic topics, exciting experiments, brilliant books and we'll make marvelous memories. 

In Year 3, you will be expected to read every night at home. You will have weekly homework, spellings to learn and time tables tests. 

To succeed in Year 3, you need to work hard, concentrate, smile, laugh and most importantly; try your best! 

Mr Hodgson


Homework reminder:

In Year 3, children will be given one piece of literacy and one piece of maths homework per week along with a list of spellings to practice.

Homework will be given every Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. Spelling tests will be on the following Friday.  

In addition to this homework, children are expected to read their home reading book every night.

Thank you for your support!

Christmas Carols


Our topic for the second part of the Autumn term is Stone Age Britain.

Please read our knowledge organiser below to find out what we will be learning!

Drama Kings and Queens!

We have been looking at the features of playscripts during our literacy lessons with Mr Tatham and we even had the chance to act it out! So much fun!


In our science lessons, we have been experimenting with magnets. We looked for objects they would stick to - this is called attraction, and for things they would push away from - this is repelling. Have a look at what we found out!


TT Rockstars!

We practise our times tables every day and we are getting so much faster!


The Water Cycle

In topic, we have been learning about the water cycle. Check out our amazing explanations!


Map Skills!

We have been using atlases and maps to locate all the mountains, rivers and coasts in Great Britain. It was lots of fun!
