Welcome to Year 3!

Moving up into Year 3 is a big step for us as we get used to what it's like to be in Key Stage 2! 

Almost all of our work is in our books, but still with lots of practical activities to help us understand any difficult learning.

We have a PE session and a dance lesson every week. PE is on Tuesday and Dance is on Friday and we must have our PE kit for both of these lessons.

Our learning is through Learning Challenge questions and we have a number of questions which we investigate over the year. This year our questions are:

Who first lived in Britain?

Where have all the mills gone?

How can we rediscover the wonder of the Indus Valley?

Why to so many people go to the Mediterranean for their holiday?

We have currently been learning about The Stone age to The Iron Age. We have been learning about what life was like to live in the Stone Age including how to start fires to keep warm and cook, what type of food they ate, which types of animals to hunt and how to transport huge rocks to make a stone circle.

During English, we have been learning about advertisements. We have been using drama activities to learn how to use persuasive language and include different advertisement techniques into our writing.

In maths, throughout the year we will be learning different methods of calculation that will help us with our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division including arrays and partitioning. We have weekly maths meeting which help us deepen our learning. We learn and practice our times tables in class but can also practice at home via the TTrockstars website. 

During science, we have been investigating rocks! We have been learning about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, experimenting the hardiness and permeability of a range of rocks. We can also explain what a fossil is and how they are formed.

Every day we learn a new word, we try hard to include these new words into our writing.

In Year 3, our day starts at 8.50am. In the morning, we complete the daily mile which helps us get fit and healthy after we have completed the mile we can buy fruit and milk from the Snack Trolley. We have our lunch at 12.00pm and then play out after we have eaten until 12:50pm. Our day finishes at 3.10pm.

Our class teacher is called Miss Thompson
