"Our Lady guides us as we have fun learning together, aiming to be the best that we can be"

St Matthew Year 3

Welcome to Year 3! My name is Ms Dikir and working alongside me is Ms Nobrega and Ms Marlene.

We are looking forward to giving children a warm welcome back to school life and to support them in starting their KS2 journey.

Although it might be slightly different in school, we will try our very best to make sure every child feels settled and nurtured in what we hope will be an exciting school year.

 

For this Autumn Term, the Class will be building on a wide variety of skills and knowledge. 

 

We will be learning about the Stone Age right up to the Iron Age. During this historical journey, we will be discovering how they lived and how it compares to now; how we are able to learn about that era; what achievements they made and how they have influenced the way we live now.  

 

Our fiction writing will be inspired by the book Fantastic Mr Fox, written by Roald Dahl. We will be guided through the text using drama, discussion and debate, before developing our own stories.

 

Mathematics will be taught daily and we will begin by securing their understanding of number and place value, before moving onto addition and subtraction. Throughout the year we will be supporting the children weekly with their times tables. This will require support from home but is hugely beneficial to their Numeracy work, as times tables support so many areas and need constantly repeating to achieve rapid recall at this age. 

 

Alongside all of this, the children will be building on their ability to research and record using the Internet. How do search engines work and how is the Internet connected? Most importantly, we will be learning to spot the dangers that accompany using the internet.

Hello Year 3! I hope you and your families are well and have had an amazing half term! Make sure you are trying your very best doing the work I’ve set and don’t worry if you find anything difficult, working from home is quite different than working at school and much more difficult, the most important thing ,however, is for you to stay happy, healthy and safe .If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me through the school email or purple mash. I miss you all enjoy this term!

In Literacy we have been looking at ‘The Hodgeheg’. A story about an intelligent hedgehog named ‘Max’. Max lives in the garden of 5A with ‘Pa Hedgehog’, ‘Ma Hedgehog’, and his three sisters, ‘Peony Hedgehog’, ‘Penny Hedgehog’ and ‘Petunia Hedgehog’. We discussed the different characters and acted out using expression to s how thoughts and feelings.

Science 

In science we are learning about light and shadow. For this topic we have been investigating about light and shadow. We learnt that dark is absences of light. 

RE

 

In RE our topic for this half term is People of Prayer. This topic we have learnt about the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes and Jesus's teachings to the people. 

First Aid

We had fun doing a first aid workshop. We learnt about how to save someone's life and who to call. We all tried CPR on Dave. 

Literacy

In Literacy we have been reading about 'The Battle of Bubble and Squeak'. This book is about a child who wants to keep their gerbils but the parents so no. In class we debated about whether we should get a class pet. 
                                                         Literacy

A warm welcome from Ms Dikir and Mrs Sumney - the Year Three team this year.

We are really looking forward to teaching your children and meeting you all over the year ahead.

We promise that your children will do their best and have fun in their lessons too. 

Year 3 Timetable and Curriculum

                                        English

 

In Literacy we have started a new text called The owl who is afraid of the dark. We read the first chapter and acted out why dark is exciting. We used expression to show the characters thoughts and feelings. We pretended to be Plop, mum, dad and the little boy. We had fun acting out and pretending to be different characters from the story.

                                           Maths
In Maths we investigated different strategies to solve addition problems. We worked in groups to solve the problems together. We had fun working together and seeing if we both got the same answer. 

IPC

We have been learning about the different communities we belong to in IPC. This week, during Art each student designed a piece of art that they felt represented them. Once they all finished, the class put each of their pieces together to create an individual artwork to represent our class.

Literacy

This month is Black History Month. We are learning about a classic Caribbean tale called “Clever Anansi and The Boastful Bullfrog”. After we finished reading the story the children worked in groups to act out different scenes.

Science

Rocks and Soil

We have been learning about Rocks and Soil in Science.  This week we investigated which rocks were stronger than others and how rocks are made.  We used actions to help us remember the three ways in which rocks are formed.

                                        Maths
In Maths we were learning about money. We had fun playing shops and shopkeepers. We had to buy items for up to £1 and work out how much change we would be given and which coins. We used our number facts to help work out the change.
