Year 3

Hello and welcome to year 3!

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

This term, we have lots of 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. 

In Science, we will be exploring rocks and fossils, carrying out investigations. identifying the rock cycle and understanding the 3 types of rock. We will further explore this through our volcano topic, where will be using cross curricular skills to identify the structure of a volcano and how and where volcanoes occur. Finally, we will time hop to the stone age creating weapons and cave art as well as comparing and contrasting life then and life now. 

Keep your eyes peeled in our ‘look what we’ve been up to’ section to see your child’s wonderful work. 

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!
