Adventurers Y3

Welcome to year 3 ...we are Adventurers 3...

we are lit up with learning



Welcome to our website and Year 3's very own class page. Our class name is 'Adventurers 3'  


Hello, I am Mrs Pollard class teacher for Year 3 and Mrs Wallace is our class LSA. 


Wow it's January already and we hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas. We would like to wish you all an amazing new year and look forward to the children being 'Lit up with Learning’ during 2023.


School Reminders


Please can your child have a named water bottle in school everyday. This must only contain water.

They are welcome to bring a healthy snack to eat during morning breaktime (no crisps or chocolate please).


We will aim to be outdoors and learning as often as possible (in all weathers) so wear your active uniform or bring suitable shoes and outer-wear. 

Each day we will have an additional morning movement session, which will be either: daily mile (walk/jog), aerobics or yoga.

Avoid un-necessary jewellery, remove earrings, or cover earrings and sign the disclaimer


Spring Term 1-From 05-01-23 until 10-02-23 

PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday 

  • Tuesday: outdoor basketball
  • Wednesday: indoor dance with Mrs Perrin- bring shorts or leotard if preferred



    Reading Expectation

    Your child should be spending 10-15 minutes each day reading, talking about their reading or listening to an adult read. Please use your child’s reading record tree to indicate when they have read (only 1 read a day is to be logged). Teachers, LSA's or school volunteers will also be reading with your child on a regular basis and will record when they have done this.

    We ask that children read at least 4 times a week at home. Children can change their twice a week and a reading task is completed online to check their understanding of the book. Every child's word count is logged via this task and the children have an avatar to move to support their reading as a 'reading rockstar'.

    Reading record trees and returned homework will be checked every Thursday. Children who complete their homework will receive Dojos as a reward for bringing it back into school. Please encourage your child to regularly log on to Times Tables Rock Stars (TTR's) and Sumdog.

    Thank you for your support.

    We are learning about Lindow Man which has a history focus, telling the story of prehistoric Britain, from the Stone Age to the Celts as well as Come Fly With Me! Africa which is based around the continent of Africa, with a key focus on geography and history.


    Reading lessons are to be focused on The Boy who grew Dragons by Andy Shepherd. Maths is multiplication and division skills. English lessons will be based on the book Toys Go Out by Emily Jenkins.



    Dates to remember- 

    After February half term (week beginning 20-2-23) one of our weekly PE lessons will be during the afternoon, so we can attend swimming lessons at Wickford swimming pool.
