Year 3

Welcome back year 3!


We hope you have had a lovely Christmas holiday and are looking forward to another term in year three. We all worked very hard last term and we have been busy planning lots of exciting lessons and opportunities for this term.


We are starting off the term by learning about the key British values and how to have a growth mindset.


During all our lessons, we will focus on how we can demonstrate the British values at all times. These are the 4 British values: rule of law, individual liberty, mutual tolerance and respect and democracy.


This term, we are also focusing on ensuring we have a growth mindset in all our lessons. This means we always persevere with our learning and never give up even when it is challenging.


Our Creative Curriculum topic this term is Marvellous Machines. The subject areas we will be covering are Art and Design and Technology. We will start by learning about Heath Robinson and using sketches to record our observations. We will then be learning about different mechanical systems used in machines. Finally, we will be designing, making and evaluating our own marvellous machine.  


In Guided Reading, we will be reading The Strongest Girl in the World by Sally Gardner and Operation Gadgetman by Malorie Blackman.  Why not see if you can borrow a copy from the local library to read along with?


In our English lessons, we are looking at writing in a range of genres including poetry, persuasion, traditional tales and non-chronological reports.


In Maths, we will start by learning about money. We will then be continuing to develop our understanding of multiplication and division.  


Your homework will continue to be; reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rockstars website and learning weekly spellings.


Below are the PE days for each class. Our PE this term will be Gymnastics. 


Scarlet (Miss Ives) - Monday and Thursday

Ruby (Miss Gaitely) - Monday and Tuesday 

Crimson (Mr Hicham) - Monday and Wednesday


We hope you are looking forward to the term as much as we are.


Miss Ives, Miss Gaitely and Mr Hicham
