Welcome to year 3! It is your first year as a junior. We are as excited as you to experience a year filled with great projects and experiences.  Please keep checking our class pages for important updates, messages and pictures.

Homework

Spellings will be sent home every other Friday to be learnt ready for the spelling test the following week. Times tables should also be practised at home. Your child is expected to read at home. Each time you read with your child please sign their reading record. Reading book bags must be in school every day. 

PE

We have PE every Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure children have PE kits in school and any earrings are removed or plasters need to be provided for the children to cover them with.

 

 

Uniform

All children should wear full uniform including their ALWAYS badges.

We do allow pupils to wear all black trainers - no coloured swooshes/stripes etc. with all black soles.

Black shoes are also still acceptable and preferred for school.

 

Autumn 1

We are working hard in English this morning. We have just started the book ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hug.



 

We had a fantastic morning using LEGO. We built a shelter using LEGO then programmed a light and alarm to go off.


 

To celebrate Black History month we have been finding out about black British sporting heroes.


 

In our Art lesson this afternoon we have been creating pictures based on the work of Howard Hodgkin and Anthony Frost. We have used our oracy skills to discuss our pictures and talk like an artist.


 

We really work like the juniors now!


 

We have made shadow puppets in Science this afternoon and have investigated what happens to the size of the shadow as we get closer to the light source.


Autumn 2

 

We have enjoyed mark making using string in our Art lesson this afternoon.


 

We have enjoyed tie dyeing in our Art lesson today.

 


DT Week

This morning as part of DT Week we have been finding out about where our food comes from.



Year 3 and Year 4's Christmas Party!


Spring 1

This morning, Bruce visited school along with Tyson and Eric to start our new English unit of work. We thought about how dogs view our world and observed them eating and playing. We had a fantastic morning. Ask your child all about it!




 

We enjoyed our lunchtime Lego club today with Mrs. Harrison. We built a Lego seesaw and used coding to make it move up and down.



 

Thank you to two of our pupils for sharing some Ancient Egyptian artefacts and bringing in a book from home. The class enjoyed learning more about Ancient Egypt and hearing some new facts! 


 

A few action shots from tonight’s athletics. We didn’t win but we all tried our best and showed great sportsmanship. Well done year 3 and 4!




 

In Science this afternoon, we have enjoyed making our own skeletons and finding out that we need them for support, protection and to help us move.


 

This week is Children's Mental Health week and the focus is on connecting with others. In our PSHE lesson today we played 'Let's Connect Bingo' to find out more about the other children in our class.




Spring 2

 

We have enjoyed World Book Day today. It was fun to have crazy hair for the day :)



 

In our Art lessons we have been studying the artist Paul Klee and created our own pictures based on his work.


 

We have had a great start to Science week today.  We really enjoyed the floating ghosts experiment.



 

Today, Charlotte from Elektec came to talk to us about electricity and construction. It gave us lots of ideas and made us think about what we want to be when we grow up.







Summer 1

In maths this morning, Year 3 have been working on fractions. It was lots of fun!



 

Yesterday, as part of our history topic, we went for a walk along part of the Leeds Liverpool canal and compared pictures of what it was like over a hundred years ago with now. We also used our Geography skills of map reading and identified the lock and aqueduct.



 

This morning we had a visitor from the Rivers and Canals Trust to talk to us about the Leeds Liverpool canal as we have been learning about this in our history lessons. Katie talked to us about when and why the canal was built. We also made a model of the canal and the mills along it.

Remote Learning

We have outlined our remote learning procedures during the covid pandemic on this page, following the guidelines set by the government. If there is a need to switch back to remote learning in the future, we will adhere to our Remote Learning policy. We will make sure to review and update it according to the current situation and the lessons we have learned from the previous period of school closure. Rest assured, we will communicate these changes clearly to parents.

Today in R.E we have thought about the presence of Jesus in our lives. We have recapped the nativity story and talked about when Jesus was born and how his presence was felt then and is still felt now.
