Year 3

Welcome To Year 3
  • Mrs Hall  (class teacher) 
  • Mr Twynam  (class teacher Tuesday afternoon)
  • Miss Kennedy (learning support) 
  • Mrs Lewis  (learning support) 
  • Mrs Wilson (learning support).
 
P.E is on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.
Wednesday afternoon is outside PE so children would benefit from track suit bottoms or similar whilst we wait for the warmer weather.
 
In Year 3 we are working really hard to improve our reading fluency and comprehension. Children are expected to read at least three times a week at home and reading records need to be signed to show this. 
 
Homework books containing spellings etc are sent home each Thursday and therefore need to be brought back into school on a Thursday for new spellings to be put in.
 
 
 
Travelling back to Victorian times.
 
Last term Year 3's topic was Victorians. The classroom took on a new look with tables in rows and eyes to the board!
As a class we read the novel 'Oliver Twist' and watched the film to see what it was like living in Victorian times. We also wrote newspaper reports and created wanted posters based on the story. We looked at play scripts and watched an adaptation of William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Nights Dream'.
To finish off our topic we went on a class trip to Bygones in Torquay. We learnt lots of facts and experienced the hustle and bustle of life on a Victorian street. Looking through the rooms of a Victorian home was fascinating too!
Exploring Ancient Greek Myths and Legends.
 
This term Year 3 are going to be looking at Ancient Greek Myths and Legends.
We will be exploring Performance Poetry and Language Poetry in English and reading myths and legends such as 'Jason and the Argonauts'.
We will also be designing and making our own Greek pots .
 
The class are welcome to contribute any Ancient Greek facts, art or writing, that they create at home, to our home learning display in class.
