Welcome to The Year 3 Page
Anti-Bullying Week November 11th to 15th in school. We will be wearing odd socks on Tuesday 12th to make our commitment to kind words and hands.
Our teachers and Learning Support Assistants are made up of dedicated and highly experienced practitioners. They are: Mrs Shone, Mrs Thompson, Mrs Kelly, Miss Bilsborough, Miss Scales and Mrs Thornley.
We are really looking forward to the half term ahead, we will be studying volcanoes in geography, forces in science and our learning challenge in design technology is; would bananas help me to climb Everest? Our whole school value this term is aspire, so we will be working hard across the curriculum to develop our understanding of aspirations.
Please note that the school day starts promptly at 8.55am with doors open at 8.45am. The morning session is very important as it gives the children a chance to reflect on the previous day’s learning and consolidate new skills, including their targets.
A two week update!
The children continue to work hard and are thriving in our knowledge rich curriculum! We have started the half term with non-chronological report in literacy and completing our studies of rock and soils in science.. In Literacy we are learning about story settings.
Friday 11th November our Learning Challenge Homework books will be sent home. There is guidance inside the front cover: for the next two weeks our challenge is to find out all about Mary Anning, she is a famous scientist who was very important in the field of fossils.
Our class has one of the best attendance rates of the school, we are so very proud of all the children’s efforts to attend school every day! Our next challenge is to work on our punctuality. All children need to be in class by 9am to be on time. This half term we will be revisiting our Random Reward days for all children in school on time, but we will never know which day the random reward will arrive!
Exciting times for Year Three!
We have just completed our first Learning Challenge research project on Mary Anning (a scientist from the 18th Century), our work is well presented, researched and has really impressed Mrs Thompson, Mrs Kelly and Miss Daily. You can see it all on Parent’s Evening.
In geography we have moved on to studying volcanoes – there are three types and we are learning which are most dangerous and why people chose to live near them.
In science we are exploring forces and magnetism: we had our first experiment last week; this week we will share our results with you.
Finally, we have just started to learn our Christmas Nativity. In Year Three we will be presenting a look at the Christmas Armistice in World War One on Christmas Day; exploring the power of humanity over war.
Next week is
Christmas Fayre on Wednesday 4th December 2019: Year 3 are presenting a cake sale. We would like lots of donations of cakes and pies for us to sell please!
Parent’s Evening on Thursday 5th December between 1:30pm and 5:45pm, we cannot wait for you to see all our hard work.
