Class 3  

Welcome back Class 3           Summer 2021


Dear Class 3,

Welcome back class 3!

This term in Class 3 we are taught by Mrs Thornton (Tuesdays) and Mrs Johnson (Monday, Wednesday  - Friday) with Miss Byres and Mrs Murphy supporting us. On a Wednesday we have French with Miss Walsh and Music with Mrs Dobinson.


PE will take place on  Thursdays and Fridays but remember to have a kit in school every day as we do make occasional changes. This term we are doing rugby and dance, so you'll need old,warm kit for rugby (any colour) and white t-shirt, dark shorts for dance. Please have warm PE kit as we will be outside as much as possible. You will also need your trainers for Mile-a-day, which will be at 8.50am every day.


Topic :This term we are excited to be studying our local area, in the last year we have all found so many new places to go right here in our local area. This term in Geography we will explore these a little further. 


In Science we are studying Animals, including humans and where does all that food go? 


English To start this term we are looking at fables and learning to write our own. Then we will be designing leaflets to advertise our fantastic area. Later in the term we will be looking at performance poetry, using drama and our acting skills - which Class 3 is so good at!


Maths Please continue to learn your times tables and learn its for Big Maths, Year 3 should know x10, x2, x5, x3, x4 and x8 by the end of this year.
