Year 3

Home Learning- A message from Mrs Godfrey

 

For all home learning tasks please click on the home learning bee logo below. Within this section you will find daily tasks which are similar to those we normally do in class.

On Friday the children also brought home a learning pack which includes a GCP Maths and English workbook. The pack also contains a blue book for the children to complete their work in. Please ensure that all work is dated and set out neatly.

An e-mail account has also been set up so that you can share with us some of the things you have been doing. The children can also use this to keep in touch with me and to say hello!

I'm really going to miss the children and wanted to let you know how proud I am of them all. Please make sure you all stay safe and well and I look forward to seeing you all once it is safe to do so.

Thank you for visiting the year 3 web page. Mrs Savoury and myself are really looking forward to working with your children this year.

World Book Day - Thursday 5th March 2020

 

The children arrived at school in their pyjamas this morning to celebrate World Book Day. They brought their favourite books with them and shared them with the rest of the class. 

Mrs Smirthwaite came to read some poems to the class and some children created their own 'book in a jar!'

Year 3 Fairtrade Assembly- 'Guardians of the Rainforest'

 

On Monday 2nd March Year 3 presented their assembly to the school. They were brilliant! The children had learned their words really well and despite a few nerves had lovely clear voices. I was really proud of the children as they had only had four days to put the assembly together. Great work!!

Spring Term 2

Roman Projects.

The children have really produced some amazing projects this term and I have been really impressed by the range of different projects the children have brought into school. All the children were able to talk about their projects and answer questions about them in our show and tell sessions. Thank you to everyone who shared their projects with us and to the grown ups for supporting your children with their learning at home.

Roman Day

The children had a great day today and it was lovely to see so many of them arrive dressed in Roman costumes.

During the day the children took part in a Roman Numerals maths lesson, a latin lesson to find the months of the year and a food sampling session. Most of the children were keen to try Roman foods such as figs, dates, olives, roman bread and pears. The olives were not very  popular! We had more luck with our pretend dormice ( chocolate mice in disguise!!)

Happy Halloween!

How many little monsters can you spot?

Mile track

This term the children have been taking part in daily running sessions on our new Mile track. Most of the children have now achieved their Bronze award for running 10 miles.

Designing and making our own Mosaics

Romans Romans Romans!

We have been busy learning about the Romans. We have compared them to the Celts and thought about how the Romans influenced life in Britain.

Celtic Invasion 19.9.19:

There was an angry rabble of Celts running down the Greatwood corridor this afternoon! They invaded Mrs Yeoman’s office and barged straight past Mrs Hardiman!
