At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within year 3! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Every child in year 3 will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure that their reading books and reading records are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week. Every time a child reads with an adult, they will receive a stamp on their reading chart, which will earn them certificates and book prizes.


P.E Days

Year 3 will have PE once a week, however, the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Class Blog – 12.1.20

This week we have been looking at measurement in Miss Pearl and Mrs Merritt’s class. We have been learning how to use a ruler accuracy and comparing lengths. We did this in variety of activities.


We had World Book Day this week, so all of our English activities were based around the book Winston of Churchill. This was about a polar bear who was similar to Sir Winston Churchill, and protested against Global Warming. We made motivational speeches to stop the humans destroying the polar bears homes. We also created a fact file about polar bears.


On Thursday, we dressed up as our favourite character from a book. In our class, some children dressed up as Horrid Henry, Harry Potter, The Lorax and a dragon. We then listened to the author that wrote, The Wondering Worm. He answered some interesting questions about being an author. We then created bookmarks and designed book covers.
