Welcome to Year 3

We are so excited about this academic year and have lots of fantastic topics that we cannot wait to share with you. Year 3 is a big transition as you move into Key Stage 2 but we are always here to guide you as you enter this new chapter.

Year 3 is also a very special year as you will be preparing to receive Jesus for the very first time. We look forward to being with you every step of the way and helping you along your special spiritual journey.

Please take a look at the overviews to see what we will be learning this year.

Autumn Term

Science

Today, Year 3 have been 'super scientists'. We drew around our bodies, then drew and labelled as many bones in the body as we could think of. I am sure you will agree they did an amazing job! We then finished the lesson by doing the 'Skeleton Dance' ,check out our groovy moves!

Collective Worship

To end our half term we prepared, planned and delivered a Collective Worship celebrating the Month of the Most Holy Rosary.

RE

In RE we have been learning about Baptism. We have been learning about the important symbols and signs used in a Baptism and about the Rite of Baptism. We role played the Rite of Baptism.

Music

We are really enjoying learning to play the ukulele in our Music lessons with Mrs Pritchard.

Spellings

As part of our spellings we do TEAM TEACH, where we organise the words and  test each other on the spellings we are learning.

Maths

Look at our fabulous Maths skills, we have been using different representations and concrete apparatus to show 3-digit numbers. We then explored 100, 10, and 1 more of less than that number.

Outdoor Learning

We really enjoyed our first Outdoor Learning session of the year, where we have been developing our map skills.  By the end of the session Mrs Fox & Mr Nolan were amazed with our fantastic progress, we even added a key to the map of the local area. 

Street Dance

We were taught in individual steps and step sequences  before putting them together to create a lively dance routine.  I think we can confidently say that Year 3 have got some moves- watch this space!

Collective Worship

Our first Collective Worship was all about New Beginnings. We discussed our Class Rules and prayed to Saint Paul who is our class saint. We discussed how every lesson is really a ‘new beginning,’ a new chance to learn and an opportunity to continue our journey in following in the footsteps of Jesus . For our Go Forth we said that we would remember the following sentence “ I am one of God’s greatest creations’.

Hockey

We have being leaning some basic hockey skills, such as pushing the ball up and down the line and push passes in pairs.

Celebrating a very special birthday.

On 8th September it is Our Blessed Mother Mary's birthday, we celebrated this joyous occasion throughout the school. In Year 3 we researched and made posters of great women of the past and present. we then prepared a presentation and delivered it to the whole class. We ended the day by singing Happy birthday to Mary and enjoying a birthday cupcake.
