Happy New Year!

 

I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing break over Christmas and got all the presents you wished for from Father Christmas! 

This term our new learning will be focussed on how 'The World Has Changed'. Year 3s topic for this half term will focus around the Romans and how they were important. This will help us to see how they have shaped the world we live in today. 

Our English learning will be focussed around Roman Myths and we will be looking at the famous Gods and Goddesses of the time. Who do you think the most interesting God/Goddess will be?

As the weather is still cold and wet, we would like to ask that children have a spare pair of joggers, socks and shoes in school. This is because the children will be playing tag rugby outside in PE this half term and may get wet and muddy, so they will be able to change into some comfortable clothes if this occurs. 

Just a reminder children should be reading everyday at home with an adult and should have their reading record signed. Please also make sure you bring in your reading record and book into school everyday. 

We have so much fun learning to do this half term and I am excited to see the amazing work we can create. Jade class have already come back with such a positive attitude towards their learning this week and I am so impressed, keep up the hard work!

Kind regards,

Miss Mollison

Welcome to Jade Class

 2021/2022

Welcome to Year 3 and Lower Key Stage 2!

It is going to be a very new and exciting time for everyone. I cannot wait to see everyone again and to hear all the lovely things you have been getting up to over the summer holidays! I am looking forward to welcoming you into our new classroom and beginning our journey into Year 3. 

 

 My name is Miss Mollison and I will be your class teacher for this year. Some of you may already remember me teaching you before the summer holidays. Mrs Rowe will be your Learning Support Assistant. We are both extremely excited to get to know you all!

 

We return to School on Monday the 6th of September 2021. 

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday, so children are able to come into school on those days in their school PE kit. 

 

Our spelling tests will take place on Friday and children will receive their spellings alongside their homework every Friday and is to be returned by the following Wednesday. Homework will not be given out until week beginning 20th September. All homework will be set on Google Classroom and children will be shown how to access this during our computing lessons. More details to follow.

 

I encourage children to read daily in school as well as at home. Children will receive their reading records in the first week of school and once they have read with an adult we would like a parent/carer to sign the record to support this. Every child should read 5 times a week with an adult.

Please ensure that your child comes to school every day with the following items;

A water bottle

Reading Book

Reading Record

A suitable coat (weather appropriate).

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Attached is our 'Welcome to Year 3,' booklet which will answer any more queries in more detail.

See you on the 6th!

Whipsnade Zoo Trip

We have been learning lots of new things this half term. On 29th September 2021, we went on a school trip to the zoo. We had lots of fun learning about all of the animals there. This helped us with our Geography learning as our topic is 'What a Wonderful World' and we have been learning about all of the biomes.

Our Learning

Jade class should be so proud of all of the amazing learning they have completed this half term.

 

In science we have been learning about animals including humans. We have looked at both human and animal skeletons and identified the different scientific names of bones in our bodies. 

In English, we have been looking at the story 'The Great Kapok Tree'. We wrote our own dilemma stories that were set in the rainforest like the book. Jade class had some amazing and imaginative ideas for their stories! Some children got to read their stories in our class assembly and presented these fantastically to the children and parents. 

Jade class have been getting creative in art by creating their own collages. We used a variety of materials to make these including tissue paper, feathers, coloured card and many more materials! We had lots of fun experimenting with what materials would work well in our collages and what we would use each item for. 

 

Children in Need

For Children in Need the children dressed up as a teacher in the school, while the teachers dressed as the children! The children made a fabulous effort with their teacher outfits for children in need.
