Year 3 Greek Food Tasting Lesson – Wednesday 10th July – IMPORTANT INFORMATION.


Dear Parents/Carers,



Our Topic lesson this week includes a Greek food tasting session, where the pupils will be sampling food such as pitta bread, hummus and olives. If you have not done so already, please ensure your child’s teacher is aware of any food allergies they may have. If you would not like your child to sample the food please let your teacher know by Wednesday morning.  If we do not hear from you we will assume that your children can fully participate in the lesson.


Thank you for your continued support with this matter.


Yours sincerely,


Mr Cox and Mrs Murray

Class Teachers


Welcome to the 3A class page. 


Teacher: Mr Cox


Some key things to know: PE days are Tuesday and Friday.

Times tables knowledge: Year 3 expectations from the National Curriculum.


Year 3's need to know their x3, x4 and x8 tables by the end of the year and the division facts.


This will build on their skills in the x2, x5 and x10 tables.


How you can help your child: Hit the Button!

Reading is so important.


We strongly encourage parents / carers to read every day with their child. 


Please write a note in the home-school diary about what you've read - a variety of good literature is great for a child!

Summer Term means Ancient Greece!

This summer term, Year 3 will be immersed in Ancient Greek times! We will be learning all about how people lived during this period, as well as learning some of the skills and ideas that they discovered. This topic will be taught as a cross-curricular subject, including our English lessons, well as  separate History lessons. The topic will allow the children to develop their historical knowledge, whilst they continue to practise their English skills in the forms of diary writing, information writing, adventure stories and also drama! During the latter part of the term, the topic will also prepare us for our own sports day, whilst we learn about the first Olympics. Although this is not an Olympic year, this unit creates many fun opportunities to get the children outside to become modern day Olympians.

This exciting project is supported by our trip to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, where the children get to handle replica artefacts and attend a workshop bespoke to Year 3, helping them to understand Ancient Greek life and culture.
