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 Courage.
10.1.19-11.1.19 - School Trip
16.1.19-17.1.19 - Parents Evening
The children will be exploring diary entries based on the Tudors. They will be looking at example diary entries based on the Tudor times and learning about different features that will support their writing (paragraphs, dates, tense). The children will also have the opportunity to write their own Tudor diary entry.
This week we will be recapping our worn on multiplication. We will also be learning about dividing 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.
PE will be on 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.
A new homework booklet will be handed in for this term.
The spelling this week is listed under week 15.
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 Niamh and Maddie! Well done!
This week we our Dojo winner was Maya - Well done!
This week we have started to discover the features of a diary entry and completed our work on multiplication.
