Year 3 2021 - 2022
Y3 teacher, Science and PE lead.
Welcome to the Year 3 Class Page!
Your teacher for this year is Miss Rothwell and your teaching assistant is Mrs Taylor. We can't wait to work with you on all of the amazing things that we have planned!
PE - please wear your PE kit to school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week
Reading Books - please bring your reading record and book to be changed every Wednesday. We expect you to read at home every night.
Homework will be given out via Google Classroom on a Friday and it will be due in the following Friday unless stated otherwise. Homework will consist of 7 spellings, Mathletics activities and Times Table Rockstars activities. There will also be a mix or curriculum and comprehension work.
Please see the links below for these useful documents:
In our Maths sessions we will be concentrating on addition and subtraction and we are hoping to truly master the column addition and subtraction processes. It might get tricky but we have done brilliantly so far.
We are looking at Aesop’s Fables during unit 1 of English. We will look at all of the different morals that are told to us through these stories and we will get to create our own fables with our own choice of characters.
Forces and Magnets is our topic over the next 7 weeks. We will get the chance to conduct lots of different investigations and look at lots of different forces in action!
Art and Design
We will be trying our hand at sculptures during the next seven weeks. We are looking at an artist called Claes Oldenburg and we will be trying to copy his amazing artworks.
We get to analyse and eventually build our own castle structures during this half term. I will be asking everyone to bring in some cereal boxes and kitchen rolls soon so keep an eye out for that!
In our Maths sessions we will be concentrating on number and place value to begin with. We are going to be learning our multiplication tables from day one as this is a really important skill to master.
We are looking at the wonderful Paddington Bear story, ‘A Bear Called Paddington’. I think the pupils are going to love this book as much as I do! I cannot wait to see what creative writing is produced this half term.
Light and astronomy is our topic over the next 8 weeks. We will be conducting lots of experiments and getting hands on with our Science!
We get to try our hand at printing during our Art sessions. The end product will be a lovely display of Manchester bees.
We are learning all about Manchester and we will be comparing it to Bacup in different ways.
During our PE sessions we will be concentrating on gymnastics with the coaches and ‘Tag and Target’ games with me. Year 3 need to come in PE kits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We may be outside for some of the PE sessions so please dress appropriately.
