Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely holiday and the children are raring and ready to go! We have a busy yet fun half term planned in Year three.

Our new topic is called Scrumdiddlyumptious!


Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery!

Our science skills will help us to understand the different food groups and what is needed to keep our bodies healthy and help them grow. We’ll look at recipes, where our food comes from and how it gets from its country of origin to our homes. We will learn about fair trade and even create our own smoothies, branded and ready to share. We will sell these to other children in the school to raise money for our class charity. We will also be asking the children to bring a tin or can of food for the local food bank as we understand the importance of eating a balanced diet.


PE is on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (yellow top, black shorts and pumps) Could you also pack an outdoor PE kit for this term (hoody/tracksuit/ trainers). Lessons will be both indoor and outdoor.

Please see website for diary dates and events and more information on the curriculum and what the children have been up to: http://www.stannesrc.oldham.sch.uk/

Here are the ‘Golden Rules’ that we will remind and expect all of our children to follow every day.

  • We will do as our teachers tell us.
  • We will not hurt anyone by anything we say or do.
  • We will take care of other people’s things.



Homework will be given on a Friday and handed in by the following Wednesday. Occasionally additional topic/science homework may also be given.

It is very important that all homework is completed on time and to the same standard that we expect in school, in order to make it worthwhile. We value your support with this. I will check if homework is completed and if your child misses their homework they will be reminded to complete it for the next day. If it is still not handed in they will lose their rainbow badge until it is completed.



Spellings will be given on a Friday to be learnt for the Thursday of the following week. The spelling test result will be recorded in the homework diary and any mistakes on the test will be highlighted.

Help your child prepare for their project:

Get baking, get your child to weigh out ingredients or even write their own recipes. Get your children to give you a helping hand on your weekly food shopping trip. Discuss the different foods, what type of food they are. Can they spot the fair trade logo on some of the products? 

 We appreciate your co-operation, as we feel it’s important that both home and school work together in order to give your child the best possible education.

Also, if you ever have any comments, questions or concerns, we are available for phone calls and meetings (by appointment please) each day before and after school.

Many thanks,

Miss Comer
