We are excited to introduce our new Collins Big Cat Reading Scheme to the children this term. Each child has a book appropriate to their reading stage. The books are exceptional quality with 50% fiction and 50% non-fiction to choose form. The children are really enjoying the new scheme and enjoying the variety of genres and material. We expect the children to read every night (one over the weekend) and bring their reading book and reading record in the following morning. The reading record should be signed by an adult and it would be most helpful if a short comment could be put in the book detailing what your child did well and perhaps something they need to develop. Children may also read books from home or from the book shelf in this time, but they must finish their levelled reading book and be confident with the comprehension aspects of the text before it can be changed.



Homework is set each Friday and is available on Google Classroom. Year 3 receive either Maths, English or enrichment based homework and spellings every week. Homework is due in on the following Wednesday. 


Logins for Google classroom are created using the first letter of your first name and your full surname, followed by 18@humberstoneacademy.co.uk



For the Autumn Term our PE is scheduled for Tuesdays.  However, it is helpful to have PE kits in school all week for any last minute timetable changes. Please see our Uniform Policy for the correct PE kit information.



Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are not as available to speak to directly at the beginning and end of the day. Should you wish to discuss anything with your child's teacher, please email the school office and request a phone call. Alternatively, write a brief note in your child's reading record, these are checked daily.


Thank you for your continued support.

Useful Links

Here is a list of useful websites if you require additional material.














Being active at home is more important than ever before! We recommend you play outside at break and lunch time as this will benefit you massively. Fresh air is very important and can make you feel so much better so make sure you get lots of it! Here are some websites that you can use to help you to stay active but you could also come up with your own routine too!. Remember to tweet them in to your teacher!

Novel Study


We have started the year with a focus on Into the Forest by Anthony Brown. In our first lesson, we looked at different clues to discover what the story was going to be about. We have since looked at dialogue and created our own page for the story! 


Next term we will move on to our first short novel which is James and The Giant Peach by Roald Dahl.  The children will be excited to see our immersive classrooms that turn into giant peaches, gardens, houses and New York City! 




Throughout Maths in Year 3 we will be covering number and place value, and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), money, measure, shape and fractions. The children love working with the practical equipment to help them embed concepts and they love to challenge themselves through problem solving.

Project Based Learning


Our current project is based around the question, "How would my life be different if I lived in the Victorian Times?" This project has allowed us to learn all about the Victorian Era, including Queen Victoria as well as looking at rich and poor children and how their lives differed to ours.  During the launch of our project, we immersed the children in a Victorian school lesson to give them an idea what school was like back then. It is safe to say they are glad school is not like that now! We have also been on an exciting trip to Beaumanor Hall and discovered who owned Beaumanor and gained an insight to what it was like for the servants working there.

What learning can you do at home?


  • We encourage children to read every night for at least 5 minutes to build on their fluency. Read to an adult and discuss what you have read and predict what might happen next!
  • Practise your times tables! Each child has a times table rockstars account that has timetables set for them. How many coins can you earn?
  • Spellings are given out on a Monday and we have a spelling test the following Monday. It is super important that you practise your spellings every day at home!
  • Both Learning Log and Maths homework are given out on Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Homework based upon the learning that has taken place at school during the week. If you have any problems, please come and speak to a teacher before the homework due in! We are happy to help.
