Welcome to Year 3!
Where are we?
Our topic in year 3 is 'Where are we?'. This is a geography based topic looking at the UK and a South American country. Our South American country this year is going to be Bolivia. For more information, please see the topic overview below.
On Friday 17th March, Jayden, Jacob, Ella and Hailie were able to do a speed check with the police. Most cars kept within the speed limit, but one naughty car was caught driving over the limit at 36mph. The police took their registration plate and went to go and tell them off!
Remember to drive safely everyone!
P.E & Swimming
Year 3S' P.E. is on a Thursday morning and they go swimming on a Wednesday morning. It is important that children have their full P.E and swimming kit on these days. Please make sure all sports kits are named to avoid any confusion in the changing rooms.
There will be an opportunity for children in year 3 to read everyday. It is therefore essential that children bring their reading books and diaries with them every day to help track their progress.
Everybody in Year 3 will be given a list of spellings each week based on the spelling rule they have been learning, as well as some common exception words.
The children will be tested on 5 of these words, chosen at random, and then will be expected to spell some of the other words correctly as part of a given sentence. This will help the children to understand how these spellings can be used correctly in writing.
