Welcome to Year 3!
This class is taught by Miss Palmer and supported by Miss Ellis.
Year 3 will have their PE lessons on Tuesdays and Fridays, with a Maths on the Move session on Mondays.
Your child should attend school wearing their PE kit on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. This is to ensure the PE clothes can be washed on a regular basis at home and to avoid any accidental swapping of clothes between children.
Year 3 will receive their homework on a Friday, to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday. Homework will be linked to learning in class.
Spellings are given out on Fridays and will be tested on the following Friday.
Your child will have the opportunity to pick a book from the Class Bookshelf to take home. All children have free choice in picking their 'reading for pleasure' text. The library book should be returned to school only when your child is ready to change it. All children will have an opportunity to pick a new book from the class room on a daily basis.
The school library is open daily, offering children the opportunity to change their library books regularly.

Ancient Greek Pinch Pots
Year 3 have been studying the Ancient Greek period in our history lessons. We have learnt a lot from primary sources during this time with pottery being one of the most valuable surviving artifacts from the time. We used our knowledge and understanding of the Ancient Greek civilisation to create our own pinch pots with traditional patterns in traditional colours and symbols of our favourite Ancient Greek Gods or Goddesses.
Year 3 shared the very important message of anti-bullying this year during our Anti-bullying assembly. We focused on the theme of 'One Kind Word' which links beautifully with our school wide theme of 'Kindness Costs Nothing'.
All children in the class showed courage and kindness when sharing this message through drama, poetry and song.
The feedback we have received from children and staff has been overwhelming and Year 3 are grateful for the opportunity to share this key message with the St George's community.

Botanical Gardens Trip
We explored the classic tale of the Hodgeheg by D. King-Smith in our Reading lessons. After becoming increasingly familiar with the book over a few weeks, we had the opportunity to retell the story and formulate our own predictions, based on what we had read so far. Once we had completed our retelling, we were lucky enough to share these with Year 2 once the author's ending had been revealed to us!
Computing - Presenting Information
In computing we have been learning new skills to use when presenting information. We have been practising skills on J2e5 such as adding text and editing colour, font, size and borders. We have also tried adding images and changing the format of these in many ways. Below you will see examples of work we have created including some GIFs, showcasing our image manipulation skills!
