Welcome to Year 3!
Class 1 are taught by Miss Holly Tillcock.
Class 2 are taught by Miss Jade Millar.
Class 3 are taught by Miss Sophie Irving.
The children are supported in their learning by our dedicated team of support staff: Miss Suzie Jackman and Miss Janie Cameron.
Please see the Homework pages; if you have any questions, please speak with your child's class teacher. You can speak to your child’s class teacher by phoning the school and requesting an appointment if they are not around at pick up.
Maths homework will be handed out on a Monday and due in on a Friday. To begin with, the children are expected to be using TT Rockstars for their maths homework.
Reading homework will also be handed out on a Monday and due in on a Friday. To begin with, the children are expected to be using Reading Eggs for their reading homework.
Please make sure PE kits are in school all week.
Keep referring back to this page for regular updates about the children's learning.
Here are the Year 3 and 4 spellings just for your reference. The children are expected to know how to spell all of these words by the END of Year 4.
We will start to send spellings home in Autumn 2 so for now, they are just here for your reference and as an optional extra.
The children are starting of their Maths with exploring place value. During this topic, they will explore more about what a number is made of to build their confidence when tackling harder questions later on.
After looking at the book FLOTSAM last week, we have now moved on to a new book: Journey!
This is a lovely, wordless picture book that we will be using to spark the children's imaginations and to concentrate on perfecting their descriptive writing!
The children will be discussing how we can grow different vegetables within the school grounds throughout the year. Over the next few weeks, the children will be researching what vegetables will be suitable to grow at this time of year. Miss Tillcock will be working with some children to clear out the flowerbeds and plant our vegetables.
This term, the children are exploring about our 'Location! Location! Location'. They will be exploring about their local area and the United Kingdom.
This term, the children are learning how to use and navigate around Google Classroom.
Each child has now been given a list of all their log-ins that includes Google Classroom, TT Rockstars, Reading Eggs, Bug Club and Mathletics!
If you are still struggling to log-in, your teacher may need to reset the password, so please speak to them at school.
In computing, we have started to look at Google Classroom.
We started by showing all the children how to find it and log in using their own usernames and passwords!
We will then be showing them how to access their assignments on there and then how to submit work.
Please note: We are not setting homework on Google Classroom until we are sure that all the children are familiar with the system and can use it properly. Therefore any work that is set on Google Classroom at this time, is to be used in school during our computing sessions.
R.E - Messages
During R.E we are exploring different messages. We have read stories and discussed the messages within these stories. Last week, we read some religious stories and discussed the messages from these. Some of the children in Year 3 shared their own religious stories that they knew. We then painted our message from one of the stories.
Here are some pictures:
