Welcome to Year Three’s class page!

In our classroom you will find a cheerful, engaging and motivating environment. Our children live out their faith in every aspect of School life by our kind words and actions.

Below we will share information about our curriculum and fun learning moments within our class.

We will also share photographs of our work throughout the year for you to see!

THIS TERM

In English we will be reading The Magic Box poem by Kit Wright and then create our own magical poems using our fantastic imaginations. Then using the knowledge we learn through our Topic lessons we will read The Stone Age Boy and write our own alternative adventures that the Boy takes part in. Then we will have a look at some Fables and write our own.

We hope you’ve had lots of rest over the holidays and refreshed your imaginations!

In Maths we will be working on securing our knowledge of place value with three-digit numbers. This will really help us with all elements of Maths throughout the year and especially as we lead on to the formal written methods for addition and subtraction. (But we know Miss Hilton has already started working on this with you in Year Two because lots of you have already shown me your amazing work with this!)

In our Topic lessons we will we will be learning all about History from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will explore the lives of the first ever humans and see how they survived. We have a trip booked to Conkers to really consolidate our learning on the 10th of October and we know you are all going to have an amazing time.

In Science we will be working scientifically to group and classify rocks and investigate how fossils are formed. We will then be investigated the properties of different types of soils… we might have some surprise guests in our classroom…

 

Although we encourage and teach reading at school, it is important that this is carried on at home to help improve your child’s knowledge and understanding.

Could parents please encourage reading daily and listen to them read at least a couple of pages of their book each night.

Please sign the yellow reading diaries so that they can be rewarded for their extra effort!

 

Meet Scruffy Ted

In Year Three we have a class teddy that watches the children all week and then decides which kind friend he would like to spend the weekend with. However, Scruffy Ted can only fall asleep if he has had a story read to him before bed. We will love to see and read all about his adventures with the children.

 

Please keep checking our website and Twitter page for updates of the children’s fantastic work.

 

 Miss Frodsham, Miss Johnson and Miss Hashmi are so excited to welcome the children to Year Three.
