Welcome to Year Three!
In Year 3, we have two classes: 3OB and 3AL.
Miss Boyd and Mrs Lloyd are the class teachers.
Miss Cooke, Miss Adcock and Mrs Hough are our teaching assistants.
If you wish to contact the teachers, please use the following email addresses:
Year Three classrooms are located just opposite the main office and accessed through entrance F from the junior playground.
Children need reading books and reading records in school every day. Reading books should be brought in school book bags and will be stored in classroom trays. Children need to have a P.E. kit in school which consists of a white T-shirt, shorts and school pumps, plus joggers and trainers for outside. A pair of Wellington boots should also be brought into school for Outdoor Learning and Forest School work.
What we do:
Everyday the children take part in fun and exciting activities to promote their learning. We undertake daily SPaG, Literacy and Maths lessons. We also underpin our learning with ICT through using iPads in class and visits to the Computing Suite. Once a fortnight we work with Mr Bean for an Outdoor Learning activity and we promote physical activity through formal and informal P.E. lessons.
My Maths is an online learning website where the children may be set Maths homework. Children have their own login and are shown how to access My Maths. If they cannot do this homework at home, then children can attend Homework Club.

Children are expected to read daily and we encourage comments (yours and theirs) to be made in reading journals. Spellings are set for the half term and are tested weekly on a Friday. There will be a short spelling task each week for children to complete using their groups' spellings.
Homework will be set on a Friday and children are expected to return their books on the following Thursday.
Topic homework is set once per term and will vary depending on the topic.
Our Spring term topic is 'Mission to the Moon'.
In the Spring term, we will be imagining that we are astronauts preparing for an exciting mission to the moon.
In our Science lessons, we will be learning all about how our skeletons and muscles work. We will also look at nutrition and healthy eating so we can be fit for our mission. We will explore forces and gravity so we are fully prepared for our moon visit.
In our History lessons, we will investigate moon missions and find out about famous astronauts. We will also look closer to home and see how Crewe has changed over time.
In our Geography lessons, we will create a booklet about different cities around the UK to show to any aliens we might meet on the moon. We will also explore how the cities have changed over time.
In our Computing (ICT) lessons, we will safely use Kodu to program and code characters to create interactive scenes and games. We will use algorithms and evaluate our products and debug if necessary.
In our Art lessons, we will be exploring the work of the artist Arcimboldo to create a picture of ourselves by collaging images of our healthy lifestyles.
In our D&T lessons, we will be designing and creating nutritious, healthy food fit for an astronaut.
In our PE lessons, we will be developing control, co-ordination and consistency in our running, jumping and throwing skills.
In our Outdoor Education lessons, we will work with Mr Bean and Miss Ikoku to further explore skeletons and muscles.
In our Literacy lessons, we will use non-fiction texts to research more facts about astronauts and expand our knowledge of the moon
We will also be chilling in the frozen depths of the wonderful book Winter's Child by Angela McAllister.
In our Maths lessons, we will continue our quest to master the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We will also be counting down to our mission by learning all about time.
