Year 3

Hello and welcome to year 3!

In year 3 we are taught by  Mrs Mahone, Miss Foxton and Miss Brook. We are supported in class by Mrs Hutchinson, Miss Dryden and Mrs Williams.

This term, we have exciting and engaging topics planned that re-covers the key skills and builds upon skills previously taught in all subjects. We are working hard to ensure all children catch up and embed knowledge and understanding through revisiting and over learning key concepts. 

We will be kicking off our last term with a local area study. We will be looking at human and physical features in our local area, using our map skills to locate them.  We will then be going on an educational visit to the Glass Centre where will be learning all about the history of the glass industry in Sunderland. We will then be taking part in a glass painting workshop. 

After our local are study,  we will be celebrating health week with a range of exciting activities. Alongside this we are going to be exploring the different bones and muscles in our body. 

Keep your eyes peeled in our ‘look what we’ve been up to’ for some great work and an insight into our trip!

Look what we’ve been up to.

Home Reading

As a school, we expect the children to read at least 3 times per week and have their journal signed by an adult. Children should bring their reading book and journal into school daily so they have the opportunity to read with adults in school.

Children have an Accelerated Reader password and user name. Use this link to access the quizzes!

We would be so pleased if the children access their quizzes at home as well as in school. 

Don’t forget you can do a quiz on books you read at home too!

Homework and Spellings

Children are all expected to practice their times tables every night and use Times Tables Rock Stars regularly.  Their challenge is to complete 10 games a week!  Spellings will still be given out ready for spelling tests on a Friday and please continue to read your home reader as many times as you can with an adult.
