Merry Christmas message

Hi Year 3! I hope you like this video I've made for you and it brings you all a smile. Have a wonderful Christmas! Best wishes, Miss Dealtry

After The Fall by Dan Santat

We have really enjoyed the After The Fall story and created our own front covers for the book. In addition we made some Humpty Dumpty's out of paper plates and paper. We've also been creating our own versions of After The Fall based on our favourite spots. Some of us included our fall being a part of lockdown and not being able to go there any more. The children were really creative with their own versions of Humpty Dumpty. We also enjoyed designing our own paper aeroplanes linked to when an 'idea flew by'.


Please find below the autumn 1 newsletter highlighting what learning we will be getting up to over this half term.

Virtual After School Sport Club Opportunity!
Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Youth Sport Trust

As you will have seen from the email sent out, the Youth Sport Trust will deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday on YouTube Live and be led by a different member of the YST’s Athlete Mentor network. Starting on Thursday 12th November with world number one female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing. Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club - Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday. Follow us using #YSTAfterSchool and click below for more information.


Year 3 Class Page

Welcome to the Year 3 class page! Please find some useful documents uploaded below. These are the expected spellings for year 2 which some children will need to work on before moving onto the year 3/4 expected words list. I have also included some key documents linked to protocols around school which Mrs Holmes has emailed out. If you haven’t received any emails please check school has the correct details on file. Please remember that we have a staggered start and finish time and that some of Year 3 start back on the TUESDAY 8th, some WEDNESDAY 9th and some THURSDAY 10th September.Please check your emails for previous correspondence to see the day your child is due back. I have also uploaded some of the previous newsletters and correspondence detailing some of the arrangements and news you might wish to read through again.

Roald Dahl Day

To celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl's birthday we had a Roald Dahl day afternoon where we looked at his life and how he got some of the ideas for his story books and story telling. The children were really interested to learn about his life and how he got some of the ideas for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We have started reading The Twits this half term and find it very amusing. We used some natural materials from outside to create our own Mr Twit beards. There were no worms involved but quite a lot of grass!

The Lion Inside

We have loved the story of The Lion Inside and we have also looked at The Koala Who could story by Rachel Bright. We have enjoyed our Koala bear art work and created some super Lions. Here are some pictures and more will be added soon.

Maths outside

In maths we have been working really hard on our place value understanding. We are starting to get to grips with 3 digit numbers and partitioning these. We had a go at some hop scotch to help us with this.

The Dot

Year 3 have been working really hard on some art work to celebrate International dot day. Here are some photos of our super work. We listened to the story 'The dot' and created our own unique dot piece of art work. We used pastels to create our final pieces.

Our new classroom

Would you believe that Flat Miss Dealtry has been sneaking into our new classroom. We both thought you might like to have a look at some photos. It looks a little bit different to our old classroom but it has all the same things really!

In music lessons, we have been learning more about body percussion and pattern. We learned a pattern and then came up with one together. These are the 'instructions' we used and links to the songs:

Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin 
Think by Aretha Franklin

Enjoy trying these at home. Choose a song and make up your own rythmn pattern. I would LOVE to see them!
