Spring Term - Why do people live here?


In English we will be exploring The Tunnel by Anthony Browne (our class author). By exploring the book, and writing our own version, the children will learn to use apostrophes, an increased range of adverbs and paragraphs. In Year 3 the children also keep a book on their desks for independent reading.


Our Class Text

The BFG by Roald Dahl

Our science work this half-term we will be learning about animals including humans; how animals and humans obtain food, how muscles work and the skeletal system.


Please encourage the children to access the TT Rockstars websure as much as possible.  It is imperative that they get a good understanding of mental multiplication to help them in their maths journey at Dallam Primary.



Our project question this term is: “Why do people live here?” As part of our project we will be exploring why people live in our town and the wider area. As our project will have a strong focus on Geography, we will be thinking about where we live in Warrington, how its population has affected land use, comparing it to a nearby seaside town and a city, how the River Mersey has affected it and what physical and human geographical features are in the local area.


Each Monday your child will be bringing home some new spellings that they need to practice in school as well as at home. On Friday we have our weekly spelling test. You can help your child at home by practising. A useful website:   www.spellingtraining.com

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.





Here are some useful and reccomended websites that you can look at with your child at home.

Maths - TT Rockstars


Reading - Oxford Reading Buddy


Science - BBC Bitesize


If you would like any help or further information then please feel free to ask at the end of the school day.
