A very warm welcome to Year 3’s class page.

 

We hope you will enjoy looking through our class page here on the school website and finding out about all the exciting things the children will be learning about this year, from discovering about the Ancient Egyptians in History to 'how does your garden grow' in Science! I am looking forward to seeing the children willingly learn with a positive attitude and I hope they will make some lasting memories whilst in Year 3.

 

Some things to remember:

  • Tuesday: PE Kit
  • Friday: Spelling Test and Homework returned
  • Reading books should be brought in every day.

As the Autumn term draws to a close here is a  review of the work we have done. As you can see  Year 3 have been very busy this term.
In Maths this term we started off by looking at place value of numbers and how to partition numbers. After that, we moved towards addition and subtraction of numbers. After half term we looked at various methods for multiplication and division. Here are a few photos of us using concrete resources that helped us have a hands on approach to the methods we had been taught.
In Topic we have been studying Ancient Egypt, including how mummies were made. We attempted to wrap up our own mummy! In music we created a dance and sang a song about the Ancient Egyptians.

In Science we have spent time looking at how different rocks are formed. This was a very hands on afternoon as you can see!
PE has been spent in the hall developing our co-ordination and balancing skills
Other highlights of this term have been getting dressed up in 'spots' for Children in Need and having a visitor from the PDSA, who talked to us about keeping pets. We also visited the Neptune Theatre to see Jungle Book, which we all enjoyed. Film Club, Art Club and School Choir have also been very popular with Year 3 this term.

Spring Term 1

 

Spring  Term 1 is well underway and the children have been very busy in all subjects.

In Maths we have been looking at fractions and using Cuisenaire Rods as our concrete resources so that the children can physically make and compare fractions.

Our book this term has been Bill's New Frock and this has led into the writing of letters, diary entries and also how to use inverted commas for when dialogue has been used.

The Science topic this term is Light and we are looking at our biggest light source, the sun, and the question is how does the sun affect our skin?

In Geography we are studying the United Kingdom, this includes the countries and counties in the UK. We are using this topic as an opportunity for cross curriculum therefore in computers we are researching Liverpool so that we can produce an information PowerPoint on the 'History of Liverpool.'
