Welcome to Year 3!
Hello! Welcome to Year 3's page. There are 2 classes in Year 3. We have 3H and 3W.
In 3H our teachers are Mrs Hatcher and Mrs Begum. In 3W we have Miss Williams and Miss Taylor. Mrs Hutchings is our intervention teacher.
We had a great Autumn term in 2016. We really enjoyed learning about the Stone and Iron Age in History. We were lucky enough to visit Martin Mere to experience what it would be like to live in the Iron Age.
In Science we have been experimenting with forces and we look forward to doing the same with magnets in the Spring term.
In RE we have been listening to many religious stories and discovering the morals behind them. Leading up to Christmas we studied the Christmas story and watched Year 2 and 6 perform the nativity.
We have loved reading stories by Roald Dahl and writing in a similar style to his. We also had the opportunity to draw like Quentin Blake in Art.
We are fantastic math magicians in Year 3. We learnt all about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in the Autumn term.
We know look forward to an exciting Spring term.
In Year 3 we have had a great start to our term.
In Maths we have been trying to find out what Mr Twit's 30 Bug Pie was made up from. We used our fraction knowledge to investigate the different amount of bugs that could be in the pie. We learnt how investigations can have more than one answer and we worked hard to find out all the possible answers.
For our English book we have started to look at adventure and mystery stories. We had a fantastic start to this topic as we were visited by our Patron of Reading, Helen Moss. Her book, The Mystery of the Whistling Caves, is going to be our focus and we had a fun filled day solving clues and writing our own class mystery!! We now have plenty of ideas for our own stories.
Geography, Maths, DT
Year 3 have been having a Spanish feast. We have made Spanish Easter cakes, Spanish salsa and delicious sangria. We have also had fun researching other Spanish dishes. Thank you to all the parents that helped us. We can’t wait to use our cooking and maths skills at home.
The children will be learning about shape and data handling in fun and adventurous ways this summer term. They will be going on shape hunts and signing lots of memorable songs about shapes to help them learn the properties.
In English we will be learning about myths and legends. Listening to legends and creating our own.
In Science we will be consolidating our learning about rocks and exploring light.
During this Summer term we will be learning about the Romans and enjoying a trip to Chester to discover more about them.
