Welcome to Year 3
Teacher: Miss Haworth
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Murphy
Don’t forget our P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday (Swimming)
– please wear your PE kit on those days.
Homework (including spellings) will be given out on Wednesday and collected in on Tuesday.
Reading books should be returned everyday. If signed, the children will receive a stamp. The more stamps, the more prizes!
As part of our Egyptian topic, the children enjoyed taking part in drama activities. They created freeze frames to represent Egyptian daily life, and acted out the story of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
In Science, we have been learning about solids, liquids and gases. We explored a variety of everyday materials, including paint, glue, rice, cotton wool and coffee. We compared and grouped them, according to whether they were solids or liquids.
As part of our Remembrance Day activities, we enjoyed getting messy making clay poppies.
Together with the rest of the school, we painted poppies on pebbles and placed them around our commemorative Oak tree, to mark the centenary of the First World War.
It’s the start of another year and the children have all settled into their new routines really well. There are a lot of exciting topics to look forward to this term. See topic web below.
In Science, we are learning about Electricity. The children have learnt about different appliances which need mains electricity or battery power. They have enjoyed making simple circuits with batteries, wires, bulbs, motors, buzzers and switches. They have also learnt about the dangers of mains electricity through internet research.
As part of their home learning, the children have created some fantastic models relating to our Electricity topic. Thank you to all those talented parents out there who have helped their children with their work. The children have loved sharing their models and posters with the class, and have really learnt a lot from it.
In October, Reverend Mark Jason from Padiham Road Methodist Church, visited Year 3 to talk to the class as part of their RE work. The children came up with all their own questions and enjoyed interviewing him about his work in the church and the wider community.
