Welcome to Year Three!
In Year 3, we have two classes: 3KS and 3LW.
Miss Sadler and Mrs White are the class teachers.
Mrs Carman, Miss Addis, Mrs Astbury and Mr Maloney are our teaching assistants. Miss Gollings will also provide support across the year group.
Miss Whiston and Mrs Bean will teach the classes each Tuesday afternoon.
Mrs Carman will teach 3LW each Thursday morning.
If you wish to contact the teachers, please use the following email addresses:
Year Three classrooms are located next to the junior hall and 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. Once a fortnight we work with Mr Bean for an Outdoor Learning activity (Wednesday afternoon) and we promote physical activity through P.E. lessons and making other lessons active!
We adopt a thematic approach to our learning and endeavour to link as many lessons as possible to our topic.
Children are expected to read daily and we encourage comments (yours and theirs) to be made in reading journals. Reading really is integral to your child's learning so please do read at home.
Spellings are set for the half term and are tested weekly on a Friday. We will have two groups for spellings. There will be a short spelling task each week for children to complete using their groups' spellings.
Homework will be set on a Thursday and children are expected to return their books on the following Tuesday.
Topic homework is set once per term and will vary depending on the topic.
Autumn - Time Travellers!
We will go back in time and explore what has happened over the years, starting with the Stone Age...
What will we be learning in our core subjects to begin with?
In our Literacy lessons we will be using the book 'Stone Age Boy', written by Satoshi Kitamura, to complete lots of different work. We will be exploring a variety of genres and incorporating lots of SPAG learning.
In our Maths lessons we will begin by exploring place value. We will consolidate our knowledge so far, have the opportunity to use different equipment to help us and develop our skills.
In our Science lessons we will enter the world of fascinating fossils and rocks. We will compare and group rocks based on their physical properties and describe the formation of fossils. We will investigate how fossils are formed and recognise that soils are made from rocks and organic matter.
We are very excited about the year ahead and look forward to lots of exciting learning taking place.
Spellings for the first half-term will be handed out in September. They can also be found on this website page. Your child will be told which spellings they are going to be learning.
