Welcome to Year 3!
In year 3 this year is Miss Jennings and Ms Catana.
In Year 3 this term our topic will be The Egyptians. We will be learning all about their way of life and also the kings and Pharaohs. We are very excited to be guiding your children through their learning journey, and look forward to hearing and developing their fantastic knowledge and ideas!

The reading challenge will restart again for this term so please ensure that partnership books are up to date. To complete the reading challenge you need to read at home 4 times a week for ten weeks in order to earn the badge at the end of term.
Well done to all of the children who are keeping busy on doodle maths. Please remember to use it as often as possible so that it can build your doodle age to be as accurate as possible and give questions accordingly.
Wow! The extravaganza was absolutely amazing. The children worked so hard and looked very professional in their costumes! They loved the evening and I hope that you did too!
For this week we will be revising and embedding our knowledge in multiplication and division methods. We will also be completing an investigation in which we will be spotting patterns and using our knowledge of times tables to help us apply our learning to other methods.
For English this week we will be continuing our genre of leaflets. We will be editing work to up skill our writing and then researching and producing a leaflet at the end of the week to persuade people to come and visit either the step pyramids or the pyramids of Giza.
We will be linking our reading to leaflets and practising the reading skill of skimming and scanning. This is when you search a text for a keyword or part of a question to help you to find answers easier. We will be answering specific question styles, such as true or false and fact retrieval.
In Year three we are building a culture where it is absolutely OK to make mistakes. We look at children's learning at the end of every day and have debates and discuss our ideas. We celebrate other children for making mistakes because we are so thankful to them for helping us learn. You might see some mistakes in our work below in the gallery, but we work independently in continuous provision and chose our own resources to use. The teachers are always very proud of us no matter if we got the exactly correct answer or not! Often the teachers like to celebrate that we managed to find a way of independently solving a problem more than the answer itself.
