YEAR 3

Hello and welcome to our class page!

My name is Miss Brough and I am the Year 3 class teacher for this academic year. We are also very lucky to have Miss Heapy as our teaching assistant!

We are really looking forward to getting to know your children and we have an exciting year ahead, particularly as we are preparing for our sacramental journey together!

We will keep you updated with what we are up to in class and you can find below the end of year expectations and what we will be learning about this half term!

If you have any queries or questions at any time, please come into school and see us!

Please note, Year 3 children will have PE on a Thursday morning and homework will be given on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays.

Thank you for your continued support!

 In Year 3 we are focusing highly on learning our times tables facts. The best way that the children can learn these facts is simply through repetition and rhyme. Here in class we are listening and chanting our times tables every day and I thought it would be useful if you at home wanted to use the same songs. I have popped the links below. Thanks, Miss Brough!

See here what Year 3 have been up to in class:

Week beginning 25th September 2017

Today, in Geography, we have been looking at a range of different maps which show us places  around the world on different scales. We have then learnt all about the 7 continents and oceans on a world map and can order them from biggest to smallest! You can see on our board here where we have labelled each one! We must admit we used our continents song to help us!

Here is the link if you would like to sing it with the children!

Week beginning 25th September 2017

Our focus for RE this half term is families. We have been discussing the joys and sorrows of family life and listening to the children's ideas of God's family. We then used scripture, taken from Romans 12:8-11, to listen to what God would expect and created short dramas to reflect how each statement could be shown through family life today. Below you can see the scriptures and some pictures of all the Year 3 children working together!

Week beginning 18th September 2017

The children have then had experience of planning and writing their own fairytale and using all the knowledge they have learn and put it together independently. I have placed just a couple on here for you to read! We were very impressed with the children's ideas and writing and thank them for their hard work!

 

Week beginning 11th September 2017

Over the last few weeks in English, we have been learning all about fairytales and their typical features. We have developed our vocabulary as a class and have been even looking at fairytales with a twist! The children have in particular been looking at the story of Little Red Riding Hood and whether the wolf was actually to blame for what happened! We read 'The Wolf's Story' and the children had to decide whether they believed Red Riding or the wolf! We debated both sides of the story and then had to write a postcard to Grandma convincing her that their chosen side was the right one! Here are a few examples of the children's work:
