Year 3 - Elm Class & Ash Class

Welcome to Year 3 
Welcome Back Year 3!

Year Three have all made a brilliant start to the new school year and are settled into their new classes and learning. There have been lots of smiles and laughter from all the children and there is a real buzz of excitement for the year ahead!

This week, the children have been working hard to further develop their handwriting and have been revisiting the handwriting families (long ladders, curly caterpillars, one-armed robots and zig-zag) to support them with correct formation. We will continue working hard on developing handwriting and will soon be focusing on the different joins. 

In maths, the children have enjoyed the opportunity of working with numbers up to 1000 and are eagerly embracing the learning challenges- pushing themselves to tackle the ‘rocket’ and sometimes even the very tricky ‘star’ challenge!  It is wonderful to see the children developing confidence and independence in their learning at such an early stage of the year. 

The children have been excited to learn about 'The Ancient Egyptians' and thoroughly enjoyed designing and creating some imaginative and colourful headdresses which are proudly on display in class.   In science, the children were introduced to the Big Question -‘Why are the pyramids still standing?’ and throughout the term will develop their learning about rocks to help them answer this question. 

What a fabulous start to the year, Year Three!

Fabulous dictionary work!  The children worked hard using a dictionary to find correct spellings and definitions for Egyptian topic related words.

In PE we carried out our first 'Born To Move' dance session which the children enjoyed.  They were all particularly good at the relaxation activity at the end of the session.  Our classroom is really coming to life now with all of our super art work!
