Welcome to India Class

Class teachers – Mrs Norris and Mrs Rozier

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Roberts

During the Summer Term, our topics will be focusing on Geography- The Bigger Picture. This topic focuses on the area we live in. We will be looking at maps and comparing Peterborough from the past to the present, as well as to other areas in Britain and Europe.

Our next topic is called Ready Steady Grow. This topic will focus on Science - mainly growing plants and vegetables and knowing what keeps our bodies healthy. 

We have taught many different sentence structures as part of English over the last year and we will be continuing to practice these techniques. We are especially focusing on using speech correctly (with the correct punctuation), using different sentence starters and using co-ordinationg and subordinating conjunctions.

Maths will be focusing on fractions, money and shape. As a school, we are really trying to encourage our children to use their mathematics skills to help problem solve and find multiple answers to questions.

We are also doing weekly times table tests to help prepare the children for the Year 4 Times Tables Test. The more you practice with your child, the better.


Year 3 India have P.E every Monday and Wednesday afternoon.

On these days the children can come into school in their P.E kits.


Reading Books 

It is really important to read with your child at home. Please do this 3 or 4 times a week.

Please make sure your child brings their reading book to school every day.

In Year 3, the children start using an AR reading scheme. This means they need to read their books 3 times, before taking a quiz based on what they have read. If they pass the  quiz, they get a new book. If they fail the quiz, they will need to read it another 3 times and re-take the test. The reason we use this scheme, is to encourage the children to be able to answer questions about a text - good practice for further exams.

Water Bottles 

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school. This must be named. There are regular opportunities for your child to drink and fill up their bottle throughout the day. Please remember that this should only be water not juice or squash.
