Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is an exciting and challenging year full of learning and fun. Class 3 are full of energy and they are extremely inquisitive. They love to ask questions and to be competitive with each other.
Year 3 Staff
Our class teacher is Miss Ballentine.
We are supported in our learning by Miss Carey and Miss Airlie.
In Year 3 we ask that the children
- Use one voice (no talking when teacher or student is talking)
- Use kind words
- Try our best
Science – Forces
History – The Ancient Egyptians
Geography – Urban and Rural Land Use
Art – 3D art – Creating a 3D Egyptian death mask.
Computing – Word Processing
Music – Creating compositions in response to an animation.
DT – Cooking and Nutrition – Edible gardens
We use knowledge mats to help us with our topic with vocabulary and sticky knowledge that we want the children to remember.
Year 3 will have PE on Wednesday and Thursday.
On Wednesday we have P.E. with Mr Storey and will be developing our football skills. We also have PE with Miss Ballentine and the children will be developing their netball skills.
We should be reading as regularly as we can throughout the week (at least 3 times) and recording it in our reading records.
We also have a specific set of words to practise spelling each week and must make sure we understand what they mean and can use them in a sentence.
We also have a weekly times tables/ mental arithmetic test. This term, we will be given specific times tables to practise.
Children can access their spelling lists on their e-schools page.
Books are to be returned to school each Friday.
