Year 3

Hello and welcome to Year 3!

Hello! I hope you had a great half term! As we head into the colder winter months, please remember to provide your child with suitable cold weather clothing. We will continue to practice safe handwashing and ventilation in the classroom in order for your child to continue learning in a safe space.

It has been wonderful to see how settled the children have been so far into this year and another huge positive is that our attendance is extremely high, so thank you! Remember to read often with your child at home and to sign the reading record. These are checked weekly and reading prizes are given for certain number of reads. Please see me if you would like any help with home reading.

Please remember to provide your child with a snack for morning break. Due to covid, our mornings are longer and it’s important children have plenty of energy to allow them to learn effectively.

Finally, if you have any spare board games which we could use for wet play we would very much appreciate a donation.

Hello and welcome to Year 3! Here you will find updates of what is happening in our classroom and around the school.

We took part in scootability this week. We enjoyed learning how to stay safe and even some tricks…

We have been studying the BFG and today we made our own frobscottle! Some found it delicious, others not so much… 

We then went on to write our own revolting recipes involving slugs, rats and other disgusting ingredients! 

Drumming

This term we have learnt about the Djembe drum. We took part in a workshop and afterwards we designed our own Djembe drum.

Dragons Sightings!

We have kicked this term of with a sizzle! The children were greeted by strange goings on in class. Dragon skulls, mystery eggs and a strange book named “Dragonology”. We have spent some time learning about dragons. The children have created the own dragon wanted posters, drawn dragon eyes, found where different dragons live on a world map and even created their own dragon eye out of clay! Keep your eyes open for any strange sightings in the local area…
