Believe and Achieve

Year 3

“We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.” – Luciano De Crescenzo

 

Our teacher is Miss Johnston and our teaching assistant is Miss Singh. We want every child in our class to achieve their full potential and make progress! In class 3 we love books and love to read for pleasure. We really enjoy our topic work and it inspires us to produce some fabulous pieces of writing and creative art work. If you have time why don’t you pop in and see some of our work.

How your child is learning at home is very important to us. You can email the School any pictures of work you may have.

 

English

This half term we are focusing on persuasive adverts. Linking to our Topic work, we have been using our model text about Pompeii to learn about the features that make a great advert.

As always, we have been encouraging the children to read as much as they can. The children have been keen to do their quizzes on Accelerated Reader and we have seen some fantastic results.

Maths

This half term we are focusing on money. We have been learning how to add, subtract and give change with notes and coins. We even challenged ourselves this half term to record money using the decimal point!

Topic News

Our topic this half term is based upon Volcanoes. After our exciting visit to the Life Centre in Newcastle,  I wonder where the children will take this topic? So far we have explored how Volcanoes are formed and where they can be found. For your homework this half term, you will have a grid,  full of creative activities linked to our topic work. I cannot wait to see you masterpieces!
