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 the rich and poor from the Tudors to today.
Our Christian value this term is Forgiveness.

Year 3 have started working on character and setting descriptions in English. This week they will be using this knowledge to create a narrative. They are working hard on using a variety of techniques to make their writing exciting (expanded noun phrases, prepositions and adverbs).
This week the children will learn about perimeter of shapes and will start focusing on statistics.
PE will be on Mondays,Tuesdays 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 is handed out this week.
The spelling this week is listed under week 22.
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 Maya and Evie.P! Well done!
