Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Our teachers are Miss McDonald (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Gregory (Wednesday - Friday).

We are helped by Mrs Ashwin and Mrs Overfield.

Year 3 Curriculum Information

I hope you have had a lovely half term break. 

It has been lovely to see the children settle into Year 3 so well during September and October. They have worked really hard and are enjoying their learning. 

Please check the information below as somethings have changed. 

 

Important information.

Spellings - spellings will be sent home on a Monday to be looked at during the week at home. These are based on phonics sounds and incorporate words from topics, the Year 3 spelling list and tricky words. The children complete tasks during the day to help them learn these. Looking over a few words each day will make a huge difference. 

 

Homework - maths and english homework will be set each week. English will be set on a Monday to be handed in on a Thursday. Maths will be set on a Thursday to be handed in on a Monday. Please support your child in completing these tasks. If you have any questions or your child is struggling with something, then please contact us and we can help! 

 

Reading - your child will have been given a reading book for them to bring home. Please hear them read this. We ask you to hear them read three times a week at least. Please enjoy other books together as well. Your child may enjoy independent reading but there is nothing more enjoyable than sharing a book together. We are currently reading The Boy Who Grew Dragons as our class novel and the class are really enjoying this!

 

PE- PE takes place on a Tuesday and a Friday this half term. We are lucky enough to be welcoming a specialist dance teacher in from Ludus Dance to teach the children.

Children should come to school in their PE kit on these days. PE kit is plain white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings, jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps. Children should wear their school jumper/cardigan as normal. 

 

Please don't hesitate to catch us after school if you have any questions. 

 

Mrs Gregory and the Year 3 team.

 

Reading

It is so important for your child to read for pleasure. We encourage the children to read a book from our class library whilst at school, we read a class novel at the end of the day and it is also important that you enjoy some reading time with your child too. They do need to read to you but will also really enjoy being read to. I have attached some recommended reading lists and also a page of suggestions for 'if you like ..... , try these'.

Websites

Please find below some useful websites that will help your child with their learning. 

The Internet is a wonderful resource but we are aware of the fact that children can spend too long online. We only recommend short bursts.

Welcome to Year 3

SPELLINGS

As of today (18th March) we are starting our Year 3 Spelling Bee. Information about this is in your child's English homework folder. 

Reading 

All the children will now have a reading book, these are to be brought into school  every day.  Please continue to listen to your child read regularly, discuss the book and sign their reading record. 

 

Homework 

Maths  - sent home on Wednesday, return by the following Monday.

English - sent home Friday, return by the following Wednesday.

 

P.E

Our days for P.E are Monday and Friday. The children are now swimming on a Friday so they will need to bring their swimming kit on this day. Please make sure your child comes to school in their school P.E kit on Monday and uniform on a Friday.  This must consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts and their school jumper.   We will be outside for P.E in most weather conditions so your child can wear black jogging bottoms if needed. 

SAFESEARCH

We have been thinking about internet safety in class.

Try to use Google SAFESEARCH instead of google when looking up information online. Click on the link below to have a look

THE ROMANS ARE COMING!

 

The Year 3 children had an amazing Roman sleepover at Birdoswald Roman Fort. 

Here are the first batch!!

More photos to be added over the next few days! 

All aboard!

We arrived at Housesteads Roman Fort and needed a drink and a snack!

Some of us found a Roman sponge on a stick and thought about what it was used for in Roman times.....

We had to walk up a big hill,  in the rain, to get to the fort at the top...

A quick picnic lunch...

Tea time!

We made  fantastic pop-up books all about volcanoes

In Geography we learned about volcanoes. 

We used the computer to make the front cover and introduction page. 

We wrote interesting  information to stick into our books.

We used our skills in Design and Technology to make our books POP!

We thought about forces as we made our 'Springy Monsters'

Look at our super volcano drawings using pen and pastel.

Using biscuits, we recreated Stone Henge. We had a great time making them and it was even better when we could eat them! 

We talked about different theories to explain why Stonehenge was built and thought about how it was built.

HOW TO WASH A WOOLLY MAMMOTH! 

We washed our prehistoric animals and then wrote instructions on how to do it!

We worked so hard to design and make Christmas stockings. What a lot of sewing we had to do!

Skeletons from dog biscuits!

Egyptian collars 

We designed and created our own Ancient Egyptian collars. These were worn by all Egyptians to dress up simple robes. 

Egyptian afternoon with Professor Tuesday

Professor Tuesday came and spent a fantastic afternoon with us talking all about Ancient Egypt.  We learnt about the history of Egypt, the top fab 5 Pharaohs,  what jobs people did and also how some people tried to destroy Egypt.

We created a human time line,  and mummified a body!

We all had a great time. 

This is some work from last year.

As part of our work on 'Light' we thought about how to make sure that Santa could be seen at night to stay safe!

Look how reflective these outfits are. Santa could definitely stay safe wearing these! 

YEAR 3 WILLOW EGYPTIAN HOMEWORK

 

It looks like the children in Year 3 Willow have enjoyed producing work for their Egyptian homework! 

Have a look at some of the wonderful work that we have seen so far! 

Abi did a great job of describing what her canopic jars were for.

Look closely at Luke's pyramid. He has included so much detail. The cake pyramid looks lovely!

Anna thought carefully about what it might look like inside an Egyptian tomb

Tom worked so hard on his Pharaoh's pyramid and even included smaller ones for the Queens!
