Year 3

Welcome back Year three! I hope you have had a refreshing break and are ready to work really hard as we count down to the summer. This is your last half term with me and your last half term in Year three, so let’s make it the best one yet!


Our geography topic will be looking at weather, focusing on extreme weather and its effects on places and people, which is very important with what is going on the world right now. We will also be looking at the globe in greater detail, identifying biomes, climates and longitude/latitude. In PE we will be learning the skills and tactics behind the game of football, working on using space effectively and evading a defender. In science we will be investigating all about magnets! You will have the chance to create your own experiments and explore what different magnets have the potential to do.


If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me, my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help. 


Here’s to our last half term together Year three!

Welcome back Year three! I hope you had a fantastic Easter break and stuffed yourselves full of chocolate! What fantastic topics we have this half term. I can’t wait to get started.

 

Our history topic will be focusing on the Vikings, learning all about who they were, where they came from and all the raids they took part in. This is going to be a super topic as I know how enthusiastic you all are about history! In science we will be investigating plants, thinking about the parts of plants, each part’s function and carrying out experiments to see what they need in order to grow. In computing our focus turns to computer science where we will be coding a range of devices and programs, seeing how we can use algorithms to control different variables.

 

You have worked so hard already this year; keep it up as we enter the final term!

Welcome back Year three. I hope you had a lovely week! We worked really hard last half term so let’s keep it up for the next five weeks and beyond! We have many exciting topics to learn about this half term. I can’t wait to get started!

 

Our geography topic will be focusing on settlements, looking at the different types of settlements and at how the West Midlands have changed over time. In science we will be investigating forces and how they can affect the objects around us while in R.E we will be thinking about Pentecost. During this unit we will think about what Pentecost is, what its impact was and if it is still important to Christians today.

 

I would just like to say well done to you all for your maturity and behaviour whilst making our sandwiches near the end of the last half term. It was a really enjoyable afternoon and I know you had fun too. Also, a big thank you to all the adults that managed to attend the tasting after the sandwiches were made, and evaluated one of the children’s sandwiches. I really appreciate all the effort that went in to be there and I was humbled by the turn out. Thank you, the children loved it.

 

If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me, my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.

Help your child with writing...

Welcome back Year three! I hope you had a fantastic break and Santa brought you all that you wanted!

 

We have some really interesting topics this half term. In history we will be uncovering what happened to Britain after the Romans left, exploring the origins of the new invaders called the Anglo-Saxons. In Science we will be looking at movement and nutrition, discovering what the human skeleton looks like, how it differs from the skeleton of other animals and how our muscles help us to move. Our DT topic is a very exciting one- creating our own sandwich! There will be an opportunity for someone to come into school and taste this with you when we have finished!

 

I have been impressed with how well you all are coping with being in Key Stage two, taking on the extra responsibilities and conducting yourself with a greater level of maturity, especially with you lining up and your behaviour walking through school! Keep this up Year three!

 

As always, if you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.

Welcome back Year 3!

 

I hope you have had a fantastic break and come back refreshed and ready to work as hard as you have been recently! I’ve been impressed with how well you have settled into life in Key Stage 2 and your maturity. Keep this up!

 

Our topic this half term is Italy, in which we will be looking at the continents of the world, the geography of Italy and the difference between man-made and natural landmarks. In Science we will be looking at light and shadows, exploring how we see things and how shadows are created. We will also be thinking about packaging in DT, looking why it is used, how it is different to suit its intended audience and creating our own packaging to house some little chocolates!

 

As always, if you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.

Welcome to Year 3 and welcome to Key Stage 2!

I hope you have had a fantastic break and come back refreshed and ready for the next challenges that await you this year! Being in Key Stage 2 brings a greater expectation of your independence, behaviour and the responsibilities given to you. I know you will all cope with this change as I have been so impressed with the maturity I have already seen from you! I know you will all shine this year!

 

Our first topic of this year is the Romans, in which we will be uncovering why the Roman army was so successful, the occupation of Britain and the myths associated with Rome. In Science we will be looking at rocks, soils and fossils, taking part in experiments of your own devising and thinking about how we can make our tests fair with reliable results. As it is the school’s one hundred and twentieth birthday, we will be investigating what Cradley was like all those years ago. We will focus on the people of Cradley, what life was like for children, how Cradley has changed over time and the Black Country dialect!

 

This year is going to be superb year 3; all we ask is that you work hard, show plenty of enthusiasm and try your best. If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.
