Under Attack!!

The legend of Podkin One-Ear by Kieran Larwood

The Legend of Podkin One-Ear: Kieran Larwood : Larwood, Kieran, Wyatt,  David: BooksBy Ruth Brocklehurst Roman Britain (Usborne History of Britain): uk: Ruth Brocklehurst: 8601404992858: Books

This term we are going to be reading the first book in Kieran Larwood’s Five Realms series. We are linking this with our history topic of Ancient Rome.


We will be studying our core text, ‘Podkin One-Ear’. Children will have the opportunity to first learn the story, then they will be able to adapt it themselves. We will be looking at writing a fact-file on the Romans to finish the term.


As mathematicians, we will focus on place value for the first three weeks. Following this, we will look at addition and subtraction.


We will be exploring the human body and those of animals this term. 


Children will have two PE sessions each week - please make sure your child wears their PE kit into school every Wednesday and Friday


The children will be learning to use chrome books, creating and storing documents on a cloud based server.


Year 3 will continue with their Spanish lessons this term.


In year 3, children need to read as much as possible. All children are expected to read at home most nights for 10 - 15 minutes either to themselves or with an adult. This could be their school reading book, listening to a story read by someone else or sharing a favourite book. All are equally valuable.   All children have a reading record book in which parents, carers or the children themselves can record what they have read or make any comments.

Spellings will be tested, and new spellings issued, each Friday. Please support your child to work on the accompanying sheets, these are designed to make spelling practice more fun and varied!

In addition, children all have access to Times Tables Rockstars, an online site for practicing their times tables.

 Optional Homework Ideas




We love reading at Lanner!  Reading to, and with, your child is one of the greatest gifts you can give as a love for reading will ensure your children becomes a reader for life.  Research shows that reading and talking to your child about stories, information books and poems from an early age benefits them for life. 

Sometimes, knowing which book to choose can be a little confusing with such a wide range available, so why not have a look at the recommended reads below for Year 3 children.  Many of these books are also available at the local library so, if you're not already a member, why not take a look at the link below to join up?
