Year 3

Mrs S Soan, Mrs J Thompson & Mrs M Casey

Welcome to Year 3

 

In Year 3 we learn about exciting topics which include the Ancient Greeks and the Stone Age and these involve educational visits to Durham University.

In English we look at range of texts including those by David Walliams, The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and Stig of the Dump by Clive King.

In Maths we learn our four and eight times table as well as learning how to count in 50s.  We learn to tell the time by reading Roman Numerals and learn about angles and which ones are more or less than a right angle.  We develop our calculation skills by learning how to carry out column addition and subtraction.

We have PE with Mr Evans.

 

 

Times tables

The children in Year 3 are continuing to develop their times tables skills and are working on our 8 times table this half term. When we learn out times tables we don't just need to be able to say the times table but we also need to learn all the related facts. Here...

Observing Rocks…

Our new Science topic, for this half term, is Rocks and Soils.  To start our topic we have looked at a range of different types of rocks and tried to describe how they are the same and different.  We looked at the colours that we could see within the rocks.  We also...

Tie-Dye fun

As part of our topic on designing our juggling balls, we have been tie-dying some socks. This was a very messy job but we can't wait to see how they turn out once they have dried. Sorry if we came home with dyed hands - we weren't supposed too! [gallery size="medium"...

Year 3 Reading Inspire

A huge thank you to those parents and families who came along to work with our children for their Reading Inspire morning.  We set the children a challenge to find as many different types of words and features of the different texts.  We also talked about how its...

Reasoned Rounding

the children have been learning how to round a number to its nearest 10 or 100.  The children were given a partner and an explanation of the game Reasoned Rounding.  They enjoyed trying to be skillful to beat their partner by rounding enough numbers to complete a...

The strongest magnet?

This week's science investigation was to work out which magnet, out of 5 different ones, was the strongest and how would we know this? The children all made a prediction of which magnet would be the strongest.  They then used paperclips to see how many paper clips...

Magnet fun

Mrs Soan set the children in Year 3 a challenge during their science work this week.  Could they use the magnet to get the paper clip to hover?  The children had great fun trying this out and lots of them succeeded! [gallery columns="5"...
