I am Miss Mc Ardle, the Year 3 class teacher. The children are also supported in their learning by Miss Kronenburg on Friday afternoons. The children in Class 3 are fantastic learners. Explore our Class page to see some of the fantastic, exciting things we will be doing this year. You can also head over to our 'Curriculum' page to see more about what we are learning!
This year, PE will be taught on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on Wednesday. It is vital for health and safety reasons that the children have the correct PE kit.
A positive work ethos makes all the difference to your child's learning, so your support from home is welcomed and encouraged. Reading is a very important aspect of learning, so we actively encourage children to read every night. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record and Reading book. Book bags can be purchased at the main office.
Every Friday, homework will be given out and is to be handed in before Thursday the following week. The children will also be given Mathletic, Time Table Rockstar and Purple Mash logins to support their learning.
Today year 3 walked to Mann Island to see all their fantastic work that they completed for the giants! We also sketched some of the work we and other schools contributed in our sketch books.
We have enjoyed taking part in gymnastics this term and have learnt lots of new skills!
Holy Cross bake off
Year 3 have enjoyed the bake off this week. Thank you to everyone for bringing in their cakes!
Freeze frames to show scripture
This week in Religion, Year 3 read scripture based letters to the Colossians. This scripture has taught us how Christians can be forgiving, show love, be patient and be gentle. In groups we have taken a paragraph each and acted this out in freeze frames.
Stone Age and Iron Age poo!
This week year 3 have explored poo to investigate what people in the Stone Age and Iron Age ate! We discussed how what they ate changed and their method of obtaining the food. We looked at clues and made a judgement whether the poo belonged to a Stone Age or Iron Age person.
Today Year 3 became palaeontologists! We explored a crime scene and gathered the bones as evidence. To label our evidence bags we had to learn the scientific names of the human skeleton.
Let Your Spirit Fly
This week year 3 have learnt and preformed the song 'Let Your Spirit Fly' by Joanna Mongona.
This week we have have talked about how we should be welcoming to everyone despite our differences. We read the story 'Beegu' and discussed how she felt when people were unwelcoming during circle time. We then decorated planets. All of our planets are different just like us!
The Giants are coming to Liverpool
The Giants will be returning to Liverpool from Thursday 4th October to Sunday 7th of October! Year 3 enjoyed making dream catchers for the event. Our work will be displayed somewhere in the city! When this is revealed, letters will be sent out with the location.
Using artefacts to explore the past
Year 3 have begun to explore their new history topic! We used artefacts to infer and ask questions to find out what we will be learning about. We looked at different shaped stones, jewellery made from skeletons and information on mammoths and cave paintings. We then designed posters about the artefacts which will be displayed on our history working wall.
We are learning about the place value of 3 digit numbers. We used a hundreds, tens and ones place value grid to make numbers and represent these using dienes.
