Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to Green Class

Our teacher is Miss Griffiths and our teaching assistants are Mrs Tatler, Mrs McCluskey and Mrs Marcus. We also have Mr Stockhill to teach us RE and music on a Wednesday afternoon.
In our classroom you will find a happy, friendly and supportive environment with lots of our incredible work displayed on the walls.

In Year 3, we love solving tricky maths problems which involve a range of different mathematical concepts. We enjoy our daily BIG MATHS sessions and we challenge ourselves to improve our scores every week.

In English we love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and writing stories and information texts linked to our exciting topics. Throughout the year, we will be learning how to write for a range of purposes which will include information texts, traditional tales, character and setting descriptions, instructions, persuasive leaflets, well as looking at some poetry.

Each half term, we have a Geography/History focus where we develop and learn skills and knowledge. These are:
Autumn 1: Walk Like an Egyptian
Autumn 2: European Cafe
Spring 1: Angry Earth
Spring 2: Rotten Romans
Summer 1: Roaming Through the Rainforest
Summer 2: An Eye on the UK

In an afternoon, we focus on each topic by learning about lots of different things including, Science, History, Geography, Art, PE, Music, PSHE, French and Computing. We like to use our English and Maths skills in these lessons, to show how much we've learnt and understood in our morning lessons.
