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.

The parent's guide for Mirodo is a useful document to help answer any questions you may have.

3M Class 15.7.21


This week in English we wrote instructions on how to reassemble Iron Man after he was transported to Australia to defeat the Space Bat Angel. SR

We used imperative verbs, time conjunctions and a rhetorical question. KH

In Maths, we have been looking at mass and capacity, identifying, adding and subtracting amounts. DO

We loved planting our own water cress this week in Science to see the conditions it needed to grow well. We were surprised to see a change after just one day! Mrs Allan also brought in some runner beans to grow, which are already really tall! LS

We identified the different parts of a plan too. SF

In History this week, we compared a rich and poor country to see which one would be better equipped to deal with an earthquake and which country would be most affected. Some of us said that

‘Rich countries have emergency services and training.’ EH

‘Rich countries were built up so buildings could fall.’ TV

‘Poorer countries didn’t have safe buildings so more people were in danger.’ GM
