Year 3 Classes

Welcome to Year 3. 

 Owls

We love being in Owl class with Miss Easthope, Miss Bell and Hedwig.  We are particularly excited to be in year 3 because we get to start swimming lessons this term!

We are looking forward to new learning, including our fantastic topics: The Stone Age and Bronze Age, Save the World, Ancient Egypt, The Land of Hope and Glory, The Romans and Eurovision!

Our book corner is amazing! It is based on Harry Potter and is really cosy and exciting. We are already reading regularly at home and we also enjoy sharing books with each other and making recommendations in school. 

Now we are in year 3, we are trying to be more independent and active learners.  We have been finding ways to be really independent by using resources and displays around our classroom so that we can overcome challenges on our own or with our friends. Of course, the adults are there to help us if we get really stuck!

Jigsaw is a great time when we can learn to listen carefully to each other and value each other. Jigsaw Jino and our new friend Jerry Cat teach us how to be a good citizen and they help us to stay calm in tricky situations.

 Hawks

Hawks Class have kick-started year three with such positive and enthusiastic attitudes and they are very excited about the fun year ahead.  So far this term, we have already created so many memorable moments by getting our hands dirty as we started our Stone Age and Iron Age topic. They enjoyed creating lovely cave paintings with parents and making bones and teeth with salt-dough. The children are looking forward to embarking on a fabulous learning journey finding out about the Egyptians and Romans during History as well as researching about recycling and different European countries during Geography. We look forward to sharing all our learning experiences with you! 

 

 

 Eagles

We love being in Eagle class with Miss Straub, Mrs Manchester and Eddie the Eagle.  We are particularly excited to be able to take Eddie home with us and share all the fun we have had with him.

We are looking forward to new learning, including our marvellous topics: The Stone Age and Bronze Age, Save the World, Ancient Egypt, The Land of Hope and Glory, The Romans and Eurovision!

Our love for Times Tables Rockstars has followed us into year 3 and we are continuing to try our best to become a rock hero. We are adding 3, 4, and 8s to our skills list and are learning these in many fun and exciting ways!

Now we are in year 3, we are trying to be more independent and active learners.  We have been finding ways to be really independent by using resources and displays around our classroom so that we can overcome challenges on our own or with our friends. We particularly enjoy using our thesaurus ‘chips’ to improve our vocabulary. Of course, the adults are there to help us if we get really stuck!

Jigsaw is a great time when we can learn to listen carefully to each other and value each other. Jigsaw Jino and our new friend Jerry Cat teach us how to be a good citizen and they help us to stay calm in tricky situations. Jerry Cat reminds us to PAUSE and reflect on our current situations and feelings.
