Barking and Dagenham Primary Music Festival 2023

Welcome to the Summer term.



In Year 3, PE will be on Tuesdays, so please make sure the children are in the correct uniform on the day. Due to the change in weather please ensure your child is dressed for outdoor PE. 


Children should be in school at 8:45 ready to practise their basic knowledge. Please assist them at home with learning their spellings and times tables. By the end of Year 3, the national expectation is that children know their 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. Children can also practise this on TTRockstars.


Children should also be reading regularly at home and having their reading record signed. If your child has read their reading book, it is a good idea to read it again to improve fluency and secure their understanding before taking the test on the book. They can also access other books via their Bug Club and MyOn accounts.





As part of our RE work, we visited our local Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul. We were looking particularly at Christian Art and Christian symbols that are used in the Christian religion. What symbols and Christian art can you spot?

Natural History Museum

For our History topics we went to the Natural History Museum and took part in a Dino Dig where we became palaeontologists looking at dinosaur skeletons and archaeologists looking at fossils and artefacts. We can learn a lot about history from things in the past including Early Humans (studied in Autumn Term) and Ancient Egypt (currently studying).
