Welcome to Year 3. We are so glad to welcome all the children in to Year 3 and look forward to a successful year ahead.
The Year 3 team consists of Mrs Nicholls(3N), Miss Ruck(3R) and Mrs Fisher and we are supported in class by Mrs Thompson and Mrs Lloyd. We hope to be able to help and support both our children and their parents as best as we can this year. Please get in touch if we can help you in any way.
This term our learning journey topics are "What is the difference between life in the Stone, Iron and Bronze ages?"(History) and "How do rocks shapes our world?"(Science). We will, also, be learning about the Hindu festival of Divali in RE and E-Safety in Computing.
During Maths, we will be learning about Place Value and Addition and Subtraction, whilst in Writing we will be looking at Poetry, Non-Chronological Report writing and adventure story writing linked to the book "Stone Age Boy". In Reading, we will be exploring a range of picture books linked to our topic and enjoy the story Mr Gum. We will, also, look at some Non Fiction linked to our History and Science themes.
Year 3 will have PE lessons every Monday and Friday afternoon with their class teacher. Please ensure that the children come to school in their PE kit on these days and have either removed their earrings or be able to take them out themselves.
