Over the summer holidays, I would like you to think about what objects best describe you or a hobby you enjoy and bring this in to show us in September. Or maybe you could draw something that represents you and also bring this in to show us.

Welcome to Year Three!

Year Three is the time when your child will consolidate all their learning from Key Stage One and begin to apply their knowledge in more depth. Our aim is for your child to grow in confidence both socially and academically throughout the year.

 

While the particular areas of focus are in reading, writing and maths, there is a continued effort to ensure that the children remain enthusiastic about learning through exploring exciting topics.  This is supported by our homework structure, which we hope you are enjoying assisting your child with. Please also continue the great support we have been given, and ensure every child reads daily and learns their weekly spellings, at home.

 

We are looking forward to seeing the progress the children will make this year.

 

If you have any questions please do come and discuss them with us.

 

Miss Hirst, Mrs Westbrook, Mrs Sorsby and Mrs Holgate

Summer 2 Term 2020

Hello Year Three. I hope you had a great two weeks holiday and enjoyed the lovely sunshine. The rain is back, but why not embrace it and go for some puddle walks, we have. Now its time for some more learning...

 

The topic for our next half term is called...

 

Tremors

Tremors. Overwhelming and mighty. Mother Nature's awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.

Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth's breathtaking power.

Watch out! Volcanologists detect formidable rumblings from an extinct volcano in Scotland's capital.                                                    Red Alert! What would you do?

Hello Year Three. I hope that you had a happy and holy Easter break, and that you all had a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Mrs Sorsby, Mrs Holgate, Mrs Westbrook and I are really missing you all and we're looking forward to seeing you all again when we return to school.

Miss Hirst

 

Now that you are all rested its time to get on with some more fantastic home learning.

The topic for our next half term is called...

Mighty Metals.

In this topic you can explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials.

Which force is at play as you slide down a slide or swing on a swing? Can you explain why magnets repel and attract? Can you make a penny look shiny and new or build a steel band from pots and pans?

You can meet Hogarth, the Iron Man's companion...The Iron Man wants a friend...Can you build him one? You must make him strong, sturdy and ready to rumble!

If you were a metal, which one would you be? Gold, a shimmering, precious ans costly mineral? or steel, that is a strong and useful alloy? Maybe you're iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust!

Maybe you're not a metal at all - but a force to be reckoned with!
