Juniper and Hawthorn Class


Please ensure that all children have their PE kits in school every day.

Important Dates:

Forest School – Every Thursday. Children to wear old clothes (long sleeves and either trousers or shorts that reach the knee), a coat and to bring in a pair of wellies in a plastic bag EVEN IN HOT WEATHER as it can be much cooler in Forest School.

Trip to Bridge Mill, Bridgerule: Friday 19th July.

Wednesday 24th July: Last day of term.

Thursday 25th July: Inset day.


Maths: This week, the children have focused on comparing, adding and subtracting mass. Children have compared the mass of an object in grams and kilograms. They have been asked to find objects that weigh more or less than 1kg or more or less than 100g. We have had lots of discussion about whether a mass with a bigger number means the object weighs more.

English: In English, we have begun a unit on non-chronological reports focused on animals. They attempted to write a report of an animal of their choice and we have spent time discussing, describing and researching animals this week.

Competition: Just a reminder: Recently, the Year 3 children wrote to local businesses to ask for donations for their outside area. Homeleigh (Brooks) Garden Centre have kindly donated a cream tea for two. If you would like to bid for the cream tea, please send in an envelope to the class with your name inside and the amount you would like to pay for the cream tea. We will then inform the highest bidder. 

Year 3 open morning: We will be opening the year 3 classrooms to parents on Tuesday 23rd July between 10 and 12. The children would like to share some of their work from the summer term and their efforts with developing the outside area. Please come anytime between 10 and 11.40 for a 20minute slot to avoid overcrowding in the classroom.

Weekly Update














Reading: Please hear your child read 5 times a week. Log this in their yellow reading log books.

Spellings: Your child will be bringing home spellings to learn this week for a quiz next Friday.
