Welcome to Year 3!
In Year 3, we have two classes: Kingfisher Class and Puffin class.
Please click on the links below to see what we have been up to lately in Kingfisher and Puffin Class.
Each year, we create a Social Story for our individual year groups. The aim of the Social Story is to help children become accustomed to their change in environment as they progress upwards through the school. It outlines how their classroom will look, who their teachers are, and how the school day may look. Our Year 3 social story can be found here:
Welcome to Year 3
During Language Day, Year 3 discovered that lots of the children spoke different languages at home. We initially focussed on Tamil and learnt some phrases like hello, thank you and goodbye. We also looked at Rangoli patterns and the children made their own as a group. We then created a language profile and the children coloured their bodies to show either a language they speak, or languages spoken at home. Year 3 ended their day sharing phrases from other languages in the class like Polish, Welsh and Irish.
Robot and Rock Star Day
The children had an amazing morning dressed as either a rock star or a robot. The children all looked amazing and put so much effort into their costumes. The children really enjoyed playing times tables rock stars on the computers. They even challenged the teachers to a battle!!
Well done to everyone for joining in and to see some more pictures, please see the Year 3 Gallery.
This week in history, the children had loads of fun learning about archaeologists. The children had a try at becoming archaeologists themselves. They used paint brushes to gently brush the sand to find a variety of different objects under the sand. Great job, everyone!
Our first week back
The children had an amazing first week in Year 3. They came in and settled in very quickly. The children really enjoyed their work on the transition book 'In Our Hands and created some lovely message in a bottle work based on the book. In science, we are learning about light and dark. The children explored the shadows on the playground and made some lanterns using paper cups. Well done to all of the children for a great first week back. See the Gallery for more pictures!
