Welcome to Year 3!

Opal Class

Teacher: Mr Gates
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Inkpen

Topaz Class

Teacher: Miss Bradshaw
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Smart

Even as the dark nights draw in, our learning in Year 3 continues to shine brightly!  The children have settled in well to the new school year and they have already completed some lovely learning.

Topic: Railway Revolution

Victorian Railways - The National Archives

In term 2, our new topic is called 'Railway Revolution' and is all about the Industrial Revolution.  The children will learn about important inventions of the time, what life was like and how children lived.  We are looking forward to reading our book, 'The Railway Children' and learning about diaries, newspapers and stories.

In a change for last term, we want to encourage the children to hand in home learning in person to the class teacher every Friday.  If you wish to upload to Edmodo, you can still do so, but we hope that offering the chance to submit physical copies will allow us to celebrate them more easily with the children.

Take a look at our web page - you should be able to find all the information you may need about Year 3 and what we are up to.  If not, don't hesitate to approach a member of the team!  We are here to help!

Home Learning

Each week, children should:

  • Read aloud regularly (daily if possible)
  • Practise the weekly spellings (using Spelling Shed)
  • Practise times tables (using Times Table Rockstars)
  • Complete one of the tasks from the term's Home Learning sheet

Topic Home Learning will be shared at the start of each term with clear guidance on what is expected each week.  Every week, the assignment for that week will be shared on Edmodo.

Topic Home Learning should be handed in by the Friday of each week. Children can share with the teacher on Edmodo OR HAND IT TO THE TEACHER DIRECTLY.

Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday. The children will have logins to access Spelling shed, along with this, a list of spellings will be available to practise on Edmodo. The children will also have the opportunity to practise their spellings on Tuesdays in the computing suite.

Children are expected to practise their multiplication on Times Tables Rockstars.
