Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is an exciting and challenging year full of learning and fun.
Year 3 Staff
Mrs Clark and Mrs Kitson are our teachers and Miss Ward is our teaching assistant. We hope you enjoy looking through what we have been learning this year!
Mrs Spence is our class governor.
We have created our own prayer books in RE and prayers we want to live by in our new class. In PE we attended a tri-golf competition where we played against schools from all around the county. Alongside this, we have enjoyed our Hoopstarz afternoon where we learnt new tricks and skills.
Please look at our Long Term Overview to find out what we will be learning about this year.
You can find our more about our learning by visiting the Curriculum section of our website.
Our homework policy now focuses on spellings, times tables and reading. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and are tested on a Friday. A chosen times table will be given out on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday. Please continue to listen to your child read or ensure they are reading independently at least three times a week and sign their reading record.
In Key Stage 2 we complete whole class guided reading sessions several times a week so all children have a chance to read aloud. They can explore a range of texts as a class and build confidence in public speaking.
PE in Class 3 is on a Wednesday, please can the children come to school in their PE kits that day, they do not need a change of clothes. Please can the children try and use the same bag for their school equipment and PE, as we have limited space in the classroom.
In History we have covered The Stone Age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, The Romans and the Mayans! We are building up a timeline and using our maths knowledge to place time periods and events in the correct place in History. In science we have learnt all about Animals including humans, plants and rocks.
In Spring term we are having lots of fun learning about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings in History. We even had Emma, An Anglo-Saxon woman, come into school to tell us all about life as an Anglo-Saxon!
We have carried out some exciting experiments in Science this year too. We investigated how to increase our lung capacity through exercise, used food dye to observe how water is transported around plants and had loads of fun making our own stalactites!
In DT we have designed and made our own Christmas Eve treat bowls and loved planning and making healthy wraps. Delicious!
