Year 3


Teacher: Miss Hall
Teaching Assistant Mrs Rashbrook
We enjoy coming to school and are eager to learn from Mrs Foy who provides us with an exciting, interesting and fun /challenging activities. Our lessons help us to develop our inquisitive minds and we are encouraged to ask questions.

The Power of Reading in literacy supports this desire to dissect and understand books in more depth, with drama playing a role in learning.

To find out more about our class and what activities we have been undertaking on a daily basis then please take a look at the details below. This page will be regularly updated with new material so please keep checking back for new information.

Times Tables

In year 3, we have continued to practice our times tables. Please encourage your children to keep practicing these. Below I have inserted some links to YouTube that children can listen to, to help them practice.

Welcome to Year 3

Image result for Oliver and the SeawigsWelcome to Year 3, I am Miss Hall and working alongside me is Mrs Rashbrook who will be in our class 3 days a week.

We have had an exciting start so far and we have begun to read our new book, 'Oliver and the Seawigs'. Our Topic lessons are linked to our book and we have some great lessons lined up. Next week, children will be designing and creating their own 'seawig' and will be using recyclable materials from home to stick on their 'seawig' and these will be displayed in our classroom.

For your information:

Spellings will be given out every Friday and children will be tested the following Friday so please make sure that children are practicing everyday ready for their test. Homework will be given out every Friday and will be given in on the following Wednesday. Children will be tested on their times tables weekly so please could you work with and support your children to practice their times tables as they are required to know their 2's, 3's. 4's, 5's, 10's and 8's by the end of year 3. I have found some great songs on YouTube that we have been listening to in class. I can put these up as a link next week for children to practice.

Well done to Harry and Hana who have been voted to represent year 3 in the school council

The Natural History Museum

Year 3 went on a trip to London to visit the Natural History Museum.

They have been busy learning about earthquakes and volcanoes. So, Mr Taylor arranged for them to experience volcanoes and earthquakes in an action packed science show.

They learned how geological forces from deep within the Earth make a real earthquake and how lava erupts from volcanoes.

Part of the show is to explain about the structure of the Earth and tectonic plates which is what they have been studying in class.

Egyptian Day

In Year 3, they have been busy learning about Egypt and it is a fascinating subject.

Today everyone came to school dressed in the Egyptian theme from Mummies to Pharaohs.

The day started by learning about Mummies and why they performed the ritual of Mummification. Then it was time for a bit of writing but not the normal way. No today was all Egyptian so it was Hieroglyphs, the formal writing used in Ancient Egypt. I'm sure you have seen it before? It consists of symbols to represent the alphabet.

In the afternoon, Year 3 created necklaces and a cartouche pendant using paint.

Tomorrow will feel rather boring in comparison.
