Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back after what we hope was not too wet a summer for you.

We of course are really excited that we are now juniors. We are settling into our new environment nicely and enjoying the challenge of being just that little more independent.

We have a brand new team; Miss Chantrey teaches the class Monday through to Wednesday, whilst Mr Donegani teaches Wednesday to Friday. We are supported by Miss Bannister, Miss Dhiri and Mrs Carlyle. Please do not hesitate to come and see any of us should you have any queries.

Our topic is based around inventions. In English we’ll be having fun imagining what life was like before anything much was invented at all! With a focus on the book ‘Stone Age Boy’, we’ll write to entertain our audience. We’ll also let our imaginations run away with us, being extra creative with silly ideas of how well-known inventions work, based on the book ‘Until I met Dudley’. In maths, as always, at the start of the year, we look at place value, addition and subtraction. Our science topic is based on light which ties in nicely with our history topic about Thomas Edison and his invention factory. We hope to be inspired by inspirational people in RE and will learn to collaborate and bring the best out of a working buddy.

It is important that we all come prepared for school, wearing the full school uniform, with a reading folder and reading diary and appropriate PE kit. (PE days are now on Tuesdays and Thursdays.) Although we would like children to be responsible and independent for themselves, they will need frequent reminders from you.

Please continue to ensure children read regularly at home. This has such a positive impact on learning in class. We will send regular homework shortly but the major priority is a settled first half term.

This is a time for us to meet fresh challenges, try new things and learn from any mistakes we make. We aim to create curious, resilient and independent learners. It’s going to be an exciting term!
