Year 3

Welcome to the Year Three webpage

Our Year Three classes are:

Shakespeare Class taught by Mrs Baker, Mrs St Clare & Mrs Panayiotou

Elizabeth Class taught by Miss Bratby & Mrs Mallon

 

Term 2

Last term was very busy and now that we are in term 2 we are already looking forward to Christmas. It was lovely to see so many parents at the recent parents evenings, thank you so much for coming. It  was a great to have the opportunity to discuss how your children have settled in, and to share all the fantastic work they have completed so far.

We are looking forward to another busy, but fun filled term. In English we are exploring the book Gregory Cool by Caroline Binch. We started the book last week and have already completed some fantastic work including a vocabulary building activity called 'role on the wall'. Together we gathered some rich and varied vocabulary which the children have already been using in other lessons which is great!

                     What is Mrs Baker doing to me?                                Now it makes sense!

                                         

 

We are working very hard in maths so that we can become 'masters'

                                                           

 

 

Engrossed in our reading!

 

 

We are collaborating and problem solving in Golden Time!

 

Enjoying the new library after PE!

In Science we have begun our work on Forces and Magnets, the children are enjoying it enormously. 

                   

 

 

 

We hope you had a fantastic summer and are looking forward to the new year. Year 3 is an exciting year for your children’s development as they embark on their junior school experience.

 

September

We have had a great start to the year, looking at 2 very different books in English - Quest and UG. In Maths we have had lots of fun using resources to help us with our place value. The children have produced some fantastic art work which is up on display. We can't believe how quickly the first month has gone!

Term 1 and 2 Topic

For the first two terms our topic is ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’. This encompasses the Stone Age, the Celts, and the Roman impact on Britain. We are very fortunate to have two Roman villas in the local area at Lullingstone and Crofton (Orpington) that children could visit to support their learning in school.
