Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

 

Welcome back to school. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting half term, during which we will hopefully get to enjoy some nicer weather too.    Our topic this half term is 'Scrumdidlyumptious' during which we shall be looking at food and where it comes from. 

The big changes this half term are to out PE timetable as we will be swimming on a Wednesday morning and having our outdoor OE session on a Thursday. 

Teaching staff in Year 3 are Mrs Read (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) and Mrs West (Thursday and Friday).

Teaching assistants are Mrs Chillingworth, Miss Ward, Mrs Skelton, Mrs Allcock and Mrs Collins.

 

This week has been a really exciting start to the half term. We visited Morrisons on Monday, where we tasted foods and made pizzas! 

We bought some ingredients whilst we were there and made bread with them.

Year three had a great hands on day at the butterfly farm learning about lots of different animals.

 

We have been learning all about Greek gods and goddesses. We spent the day dressed as gods and goddesses.

We have been working with a range of manipulatives to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems following the new Inspire maths curriculum. 
For 'No Pens Wednesday' we have been looking at how to calculate subtraction questions with regrouping. We have again used manipulatives to find the answer.

On Monday 7th November we went 'Time Travelling' at St Swithun's Church. It was a long walk down to the church. Whilst we were there we learnt all about the Pilgrims and Separatists and their journey to America.
