Our love of Learning Leads us to Excellence

Year 3 2018-2019

Welcome to Year 3. 

This class is taught by Miss Duggins and supported by Jean. Our topic for this half term is Henry VIII!

We have been reading the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and have started making our own crayon puppets ready for our Puppet Show next half term!

Year 3 have been working hard thinking about facial expressions and emotions for the crayons. We even wrote our own letters to Duncan as a new crayon! 


Year 3 have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday! Children will need their PE kit in school on these days.


Spellings and Homework

Spellings and homework are given out on Fridays.

Homework should be return by the following Wednesday.

Home Reading

Children will be involved in the schools 'Accelerated Reader' scheme. This involves children quizzing on a book once they have completed it to assess their understanding. Year 3 can visit the school library during break time and lunch time with a library pass as well as during silent reading after lunch. Reading at home is encouraged.

This year...

Puppet Show 


In the first half term, our topic was 'World War One'. We learnt about World War One in History and finding out about life in the trenches.

In English, we read the book 'Peace Lily' and learnt about Lily as she becomes a nurse in World War One.



Year 3 went swimming for the first term! 

Swimming kit consists of: swimming shorts for boys, to be no longer than the knee / a swimming costume for girls and a towel. Goggles are not required but can be brought in if children want to.
