Mrs Matthew's Class 2023 - 2024

Mrs Matthew


Autumn 1

Welcome back Year 3

This page is updated weekly so please use it to keep up to date with any information regarding Year 3.

It is very important that you come to school at the correct time and are ready to start your learning at 8.45am.

General Information:


PE will be on Monday and Friday afternoons this half term. If there are any changes these will be uploaded to the website and announced on Seesaw.  Please ensure children come to school in their PE kit on these days. As the weather is fluctuating, children should wear the appropriate PE kit.  A reminder that our PE kit consists of a coloured t-shirt along with the school logo, shorts and black trainers; if it is cold, joggers are allowed. 


As always, can we please remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be something healthy such as fruit and something appropriate in size. There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack. The children can bring in their own water bottle daily which must only have water (not juice) in. 


Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  It is expected that children read at least 4 times a week. Please feel free to record their reading in their planner. We would like you to sign your child's diary at the end of the week so that you and we know that this is happening. Reading diaries will be signed weekly when your child has their Guided Reading Session.

Reading so often, every day, both at home and at school, should enable your child to take a book quiz within two weeks - sometimes perhaps three. We will continue to encourage the children to ensure that they can take the appropriate number of quizzes. If your children would like to quiz on their book, please use the Accelerated Reader Webpage link at the bottom of the page. 


Seesaw is an excellent resource that many of you are familiar with already. Please ensure you are signed up as soon as possible as I will be sharing pictures of the children, information about the school day and any announcements. It is also the best way to contact me if you wish to discuss any matters relating to any aspect of school life.  I aim to reply within 48 hours. If you have any questions regarding Seesaw, please speak to me at the end of the school day. 


This will be sent home weekly on a Friday and is expected to be completed by the following Friday. It can be found outlined on our Brain Builder (clicking on the pencil above). It will consist of spellings and times tables to focus on; Maths, which will be set online using MyMaths; and Grammar skills which can be completed in the book sent home . Please ensure your child returns their Grammar books to school for marking on Fridays. Please find links to MyMaths, Spelling Shed, Times Table Rockstar and Accelerated Reader at the bottom of the page.



Weekly Learning Journey:



Stone-Age-Boy.jpghow to wash a woolly mammoth.jpg 

 For our first book we will be looking at 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.

 We travel 20,000 years into the past and discover what life as a caveman was like.
 One day a little boy is walking along when he trips, stumbles and falls ... into the Stone  Age! He meets a girl his own age and her tribe, and learns all about their way of life. He   watches them make tools, clothes and weapons. He sees how they hunt, fish, cook,   celebrate – and even how they paint on the walls of caves. But when a furious cave bear   attacks, he wakes up back in his own time where everyone tells him it was only a dream.   But was it?

This week we will be writing a cave description using fronted adverbials that we learnt about last week.


Each day, our Maths lessons begin with a focus on improving our fluency in arithmetic and times tables knowledge.
