    Welcome to our class page! We hope you enjoy reading about our wonderful learning, exciting activities and amazing achievements. Please keep visiting weekly to find out important information about homework and the latest news!



    Star of the Week this week is Joshua. He is definitely living up to his sign name of work. he has made a cracking start to Year 3 and I have been really impressed with the example he sets to others. Thank you, Joshua.


    This week’s Showstopper is: some of our work on dragon descriptions. We have been using our knowledge of nouns and adjectives to describe our dragons. Here is one as an example.

    Year 3 Homework: 9.9.19 Completed by: 16.9.19
    Hi all,
    Homework will be given every Monday and will be due in the following Monday. This will include a piece of English, a piece of Maths and weekly spellings. Our class spelling tests will be on Tuesdays. The children will earn right raffle tickets/dojo points for every piece of homework they complete and every time they change their reading book too. They will be awarded passport points for every reading scheme book they read as well as 1-5 points for their passport (reading for pleasure) book. They can also log into Bug Club and read any of their allocated books on there.
    All the children have been given a My Maths login which is stuck in their homework book. I have set an activity on place value and counting as this week’s Maths task. If there any problems with the login or computer access at home just let me know and we can make arrangements in school.
    Their TTRS logins have been stuck in too. If I can see they have been on to practise their tables, then they can earn right raffle tickets/dojo points for this too.
    In English, we are going to be building up our language to describe dragons and the settings they are in. For homework, I would like the children to choose a picture of a dragon (or draw one themselves) and record language that describes it. They can think about what it looks like, what it feels like, what it might smell like, what it sounds like and how it might move too. Their language examples will be added to our class word banks and their magpie books too.
    I have uploaded our first class newsletter onto our class page. It tells you about the topics we will be covering. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
    Many thanks,
    Miss Beale

    Year 3 Maths Homework: 16.9.19 Completed by: 23.9.19
    Thank you for doing last week’s My Maths homework. I have set an activity on simple addition and subtraction. If there any problems with the login or computer access at home just let me know and we can make arrangements in school.
    English homework is to draw a setting for their dragon and label it with descriptive language. The ideas can be added to our working wall and their magpie books.
    Many thanks,
    Miss Beale

    13.9.19 Just a quick note to say that until October half term, our PE slots have changes. We will be outdoors on Wednesday and indoor on Thursday. This is so the children can work with Lauren, a personal trainer, to develop our fitness. The children thoroughly enjoyed their first session, yesterday, and we are all looking forward to next week.

    4.9.19 We have had a busy first couple of days in Y3. The children look really smart in their new uniforms. Thank you for your efforts. Miss Beale
