A Dawlish Learning Partnershp School

Class 3

Teacher: Sandy Martin

Autumn Term 2017

This term sees a new start in a new class for the year 3 children, and a new academic year for the children in year 4.

All of the children in both year groups have enjoyed working together to establish our class rules and how our classroom is organised.

Please see below the Topic web for the work we will be covering during this half term. The plans for history, geography, science and the arts will be flexible, responding to the particular interests of the children, at the same time as ensuring that all key objectives being covered. (Click image to enlarge)

We would like to develop and make a class museum. If you have any items, photos, pictures, or information that could enable us to create an exciting and interesting display we would be very grateful for your support.

Also, if anyone has any particular knowledge or ideas that would add to our topic please do not hesitate to speak with me.

The Year 3 children will for the first time be studying French.

At the start of term all of the children have completed a reading assessment on an ICT programme, Accelerated Reader (AR), which assesses their level. From your child’s result we give them a band from which they can choose their reading book in the library. We would like you to continue listening to your child read in line with our homework policy, please initial in their reading record book every time you or another adult listens to them read. Once they have read the book they complete a comprehension and can take a new book. We monitor their results and change their levels at an appropriate time. If you have any queries please arrange a time to meet with me.


Please send your child in with a healthy snack (named helps avoid confusion) and a named school water bottle.

The children will be set homework on a Wednesday which needs to be handed in by the following Monday. They will have a spelling test on a Monday and times table test on a Tuesday morning.

Mrs Coles will be teaching in class with us on a Monday afternoon, she will be teaching ICT and music.

Please can your child keep their PE kit in school, this can be kept in their locker.

If you are able to offer any help or support during the term please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards

Sandy Martin
