Luddenham School Every Child Can Achieve

Class 3


A huge thank you to Mrs Soff this morning who volunteered to make medusa cakes with the class. We had a lot of fun.


We have been inspired by local artist 'White One Sugar' to create images based on the sights and scenes around Faversham.



We have been having fun learning about forces. We will be continuing this up until half term.

This week we looked at magnets - they're great fun! We even managed to get a normal paperclip to behave like a magnet with a little bit of science trickery.

Math workshop:

Thank you to everyone who found time to join us for the Year 3 Math workshop. I hope you found it useful.

Update: We have moved into our new class for the last day of term!


We have been getting ready to move classroom this week by measuring up to make sure we can fit everything we need in there.

It was particularly useful to measure the size of the door!

Is Mr Wise's bookshelf going to fit?

We have started work for a writing competition. All the children have come up with their own 'crazy creatures' and next week we are going to draft and write our mini-saga.

We had great fun on book day this year. I was very impressed with the wonderful costumes there were.



Homework is sent out every Friday and is due back by the following Thursday. If for any reason your child does not bring homework home, check here as it always posted online for you to print if needs be. (Do feel free to ask myself or Mrs Gray should you have any questions regarding homework.)


Weekly homework includes spellings, a multiplication table, and a math sheet covering multiple areas of the math curriculum. There is usually an addition piece of homework related to an aspect of learning covered during the week, or linked to proposed learning of the following week. Everyone is still encouraged to continue reading and this checked weekly.

Exciting times ahead.  During our term 6, children would be getting ready for their assembly, parents will be welcome to come and watch their children perform three songs, chosen by the children, in Spanish!


Class 3 has chosen:


1. Los días de la semana

2. Los meses del año (performed)

3. El alfabeto


Tarea de Español


During the half term I would ask that children practise their songs.


Any homework should be brought back by Friday.

We will be focusing on various shorter texts over the next few weeks. We will also be thinking about entering a short writing competition. While this will be our main focus, we will cover areas including.


  • Word Classes (Nouns, Adjectives, Verbs, Adverbs)
  • Speech Marks
  • Apostrophes for contractions
  • Coordinating and Subordinating Conjunctions
  • Sentence Structure


This term we will be focusing upon Fractions as well as revisiting areas within multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction.


Week 1-4: Fractions

  • Compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators.
  • Recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators.
  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole.
  • Solve problems that involve all of the above. 

Week 5-6: Geometry - Properties of Shape

  • Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.
  • Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.

  • Identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines.

  • Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials.

  • Recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them.
