We are a class of Year 3 children and our teacher is Miss Bate with Mrs Wahby, Miss Hayward and Mrs Tattersdale supporting us.
Our main topics for this year include:
‘Busy Bodies’ when we find out about the digestive system, our bones, teeth, keeping healthy and food chains.
‘Once Upon a time in the Stone Age which initially investigates books of different genres and a range of exciting authors and illustrators. We go onto find out out about prehistoric life in Stone Age Britain.
Our final topic is ‘Welcome to Yorkshire’ when we investigate the geography, food, and famous people and events of Yorkshire.
Each topic includes either a class visit or a workshop to excite and engage the children, as well as to enhance the learning experience.
P.E. is currently on Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursdays (indoor).
On these days please come to school dressed in your PE kit.
Homework is handed out on a Friday and needs to be returned on Tuesday mornings. Homework and diaries will be checked weekly and house points are awarded for effort and accuracy..
Please keep practising your spellings and time tables (plus the linked division facts), as it is so important. Please also practise telling the time (looking at analogue and digital times) at home as this will really help your child in maths lessons.
We are using Times Table Rock Stars in school to help the children learn their times tables.

We have been in awe across LKS2 with the incredible projects that the children have brought in this week. We have taken part in quizzes, tasted cake and admired art work. The amount of effort the children have put in and their ability to present the new information to the rest of their classes has been admirable. A big thank you to all of the children as well as parents and guardians for your on going support.
