Year 3 – Blossom Class


"Every child is a different kind of flower and all together they make this world a beautiful garden."

In Year 3 we have 30 eager and excited children ready to embrace their Key Stage 2 journey. I am Mrs Twist, the class teacher and along with Miss Milner we are excited to watch your child grow and develop.  Throughout this year we will nurture your children as they begin their KS2 journey.



We are heading back in time for the start of the Summer term.  Journeying back to the time to Roman Britain.  We have an exciting trip to Chester planned where the children will immerse themselves in all things Roman for a day, from exploring artefacts in a museum, to taking part in a workshop to then visiting the amphitheatre and Roman gardens in Chester.   

After completing a week on poetry our English work will focus around the text A Roman Story.  This will lead us write our own diaries based on this text.  We will then finish this half term with a non-fiction unit on discussion.

We finally get to start our Swimming lessons this term, the children will go swimming each Monday and must bring their swimming kit each week.  We will then have another PE session on Friday's.  The children can wear PE kit on both Monday and Friday.

In Religion we will be continuing to learn about Easter and then moving on to learn about Pentecost.

Our Science learning will focus on Plants, hopefully we will be able to grow some of our own plants as well as conducting some experiments to learn more about how plants grow.


This is a very busy term, please keep a look out for all the key dates on the newsletter and messages sent from the office.



The happiness and safety of your child is very important to me, if you ever have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us via our staff emails or

Class Routine

As the children enter the classroom there will be a morning task for them to complete, this is usually a maths activity or quiet reading.

After registration the children will begin the learning for the day.

At break time the children can bring a healthy snack in to eat at break time, please note fruit is not provided for KS2 children.



Homework is completed on Century Tech.  Children need to complete the minimum of 3 nuggets per week on Maths. Homework is due in every Friday.


Your child should bring home a reading book each night, they should read for at least 20 minutes.  When they have finished their book they should complete the quiz on Accelerated Reader, if they pass their quiz (80% or above) they need to change their book for a new one.

Please ensure that your child has their book in school every day, along with their reading record.
