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!
A massive congratulations to all of the children who competed in the semi-finals of Eisteddfod-you were all amazing!
29.03.18 - Last day of term
The next spelling test will take place next Monday 27th March. It will be the unit 11 test.
The reading challenge will soon be counted 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.
Please keep going on Doodlemaths! We have not had any year 3 children in the top 10 doodlers of the week yet and I know you are all capable of being there! Why don't you challenge yourself to see how many stars you can get in just one week? We had 3 children in the top 10 last week but are still yet to have anybody in the top 5 on Friday's celebration assemblies! Keep going, you are doing so well!
Wow! An absolutely amazing evening put on by the children in the final. A special well done goes to Scarlett and Otto from Year 3 who were incredible and did year 3 very proud. It was such a joy to see you both so confident and enjoying your work, I am so proud to be your teacher.
For this week we will be sitting our end of term assessments. We will continue to revise for the assessments before them thinking about two part problems and arithmetic methods.
For English this week we will be sitting our end of term assessments in spelling, punctuation and grammar. We will continu to learn and revise rules and test style questions. We will be answering test style questions on topics such as inverted commas, questions, tenses, plurals, contractions, suffix, apostrophes, verbs, nouns, adjectives and adverbs.
We will be siting our end of term assesssments including test questions from texts that are taken from stories, poetry and non-fiction.
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.
Scarlett and Emily
Emily! A super week for you, keep it up!
The homework this week is to learn the spellings for the Spellathon.
