This week's learning




This week we will be continuing with instructions. We will be looking at the features of instructions, sequence, time openers, imperative verbs and specific punctuation.




This week we are continuing our focus on addition and subtraction using 3-digit and 2-digit numbers. 

We will be focusing on column addition this week.








PE day will be Mondays. Children must ensure they attend school in their PE kits (plain white top, plain black shorts/joggers and trainers). Please note: studs will have to be removed prior to the PE lesson.


Fact of the week:


A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out.


Word of the week:



Definition: If you describe something as colossal, you are emphasising that it is very large.

Sentence: The book was colossal, but we loved every page.

Synonym : monstrous

Antonym : tiny

Challenge - Use the word in you writing correctly and you will be given extra smilies :)



 In Year 3 we cover a range of interesting and exciting topics including The Stone Age, The Romans, Volcanoes, All about Forces and Magnets, Light and Animals including Humans. We take great pride in making sure we make all our lessons fun and exciting for you. If you are lucky you may even get to make your own slime, volcanoes and Roman shields and jewellery.



At Bywell, we get excited about books and in our Love of reading sessions we will explore popular authors and titles. In Year 3 we study Slime, How to train your dragon, Sam Wu is Not afraid of the dark and The Enchanted Wood.

We have now introduced a reading session called DEAR.

Drop Everything And Read.


This will happen once a week at an unknown time. Everybody in school, including teachers , will stop what they are doing and read. This is to help build up reading stamina and help all the children to focus.


Why don't you practice at home? - it will help to establish reading as an essential part of learning for life!
