Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Autumn 1

We have had a great start settling into the juniors. You have all been so sensible and you make us very proud. 

Do you know what makes the Earth Angry? Well now you will as we will have lots of fun learning about Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We will look at how our planet is structured and what causes these catastrophic events. Towards the end of the topic we will make model volcanoes which will 'erupt' in the quiet area using a vinegar and bicarbonate of soda reaction.

In English, we will soon start reading the book 'Sig of the Dump' by Clive King.  In the second chapter, Barney meets Stig who lives in a rubbish dump. You will use your imaginations to create an invention using broken items which are no longer use to people in the 21st century but really useful to a stone-age man living in a pit.

In maths we are starting to learn about the value of numbers. Don't be surprised if you get challenged in a few weeks to give your child the biggest number you can think of and they'll instantly be able to tell you if it is odd or even!

Mrs Williams and Miss Doherty would encourage the children to continue their fantastic start by continuing to listen to instructions, read as much as they can and always do their best!
