Welcome to Year 3!
My name is Miss Edwards and I will be teaching year 3 this year along with our teaching assistant Ms Catana. I am excited to be working with year 3 where we will be taking part in fun and interactive activities to develop the children's learning. This term our topic will be based on Myths and Legends.
Our Christian value this term is Compassion.
23.11.18 Year 6 Takeover day
02.12.18 Christmas Fair
The children will continue to explore fact files. They will be looking at different fact files and understanding how information is presented. They will also be writing their own fact file.
In maths we will use our knowledge of multiplication and apply it to division. We will keep practising times tables to support our work.
PE will be on Mondays, Tuesday and Fridays but please make sure PE kits are in school each day. Could children please come into school in their PE kits on Tuesdays and Fridays please.
Homework will be handed in on Monday.
The spelling this week is listed under week 10.
In year 3 we are building our confidence in attempting questions in class - it is OK to make mistakes! We look at the work the children have completed at the end of the day and discuss our ideas from the lessons. We celebrate mistakes as these help us to learn and makes our work more exciting. We also try to work independently and try every question but we also know there is help if we need it. In year 3 we have a happy and challenging environment where we take part in different activities to help us enjoy our learning.
Stars of this week are Ted and Maddie! Well done!

This week we have been working on our writing based on fact files - the children have been focusing on Diwali . In maths we have been working on multiplication and discussing what multiplication means. The class has been working very hard this week and I am proud of their positive attitude.
