Good to be Green
Our 'RICHER' values are very important to everybody in our school community. Everybody should be following these at all times.
The children who choose to use their 'RICHER' values and receive less red cards in one half term are invited to attend a Good to be Green Party. Staff will always be looking out for children to receive the 'RICHER' values certificates on a Monday morning in our 'RICHER' Rainbow assembly!
Please see our Year 3 timetable below.
All Year 3 children will have PE on a Tuesday afternoon.
Please ensure your child has the correct P.E kit on this day and all items are named.
Please note, girls will be getting changed in the tulips classroom and boys will be getting changed in the orchids classroom.
Exciting Learning Opportunities
This half term, we will be looking at the topic 'Transport'. We will be exploring the various modes of transport as well as maps and looking at the local area throughout our geography lessons. We will be using our skills and new knowledge to write an exciting narrative in writing after exploring our class book 'Journey' by Aaron Becker!
During project friday, we will be using the chromebooks to design and create a publish a picture. Look out for the pictures over the coming weeks!
Year 3 Star Writers!
We are incredibly proud of our star writers! Well done!
Here is an overview of what the children in year3 will be covering this spring term.
This term, the children will…
This term, the children will learn to name, and recognise the members of a family using games, songs and rhymes. They will complete a simple family tree then progress onto writing about their families using the verb ‘have’ in 1st and 3rd person and in the negative form (haven’t). They will practice the use of the pronouns ‘my’, ‘his’ and ‘her’ in masculine and feminine form to talk about their families. They will get involved in the story ‘the great turnip’ and sing various songs (‘ma famille’ and ‘toute la famille se réveille’) to help them memorise the vocabulary. They will also be introduced to a video demonstrating conversations about families and a text that will give them the opportunity to identify the vocabulary and grammatical features associated with the topic. Pets will also be linked to families and the children will use the somewhat familiar vocabulary seen in year2 to make sentences describing their pets. They will build up to their knowledge by adding a list of adjectives they can use in their description.
Subsequently, the other half of the term will be spent on identifying, labelling, and spelling the various parts of the face/hair and making sentences to describe our own and others’ physical appearance. Among other activities, the children will achieve this by playing ‘Simon says’, ‘guess who’ and ‘build a face’, taking part in short Q&A with one another and listening to short conversations.
Whenever we use computers, iPads, tablets or mobile phones, we will be following our 5 SMART rules…
Safe: We are careful and do not give out personal information about yourself or anyone else when chatting or posting online.
Meeting: We know that meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous, so it’s not a good idea. We only meet someone with your parents’ or carer’s permission and even then, only when they are with us. We always remember that online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
Accepting: We understand that accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems—they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
Reliable: When we chat online, we know it is best to only chat to real world friends and family members. Sometimes, people online might lie about who they are. We always check information found on the internet because it might not be true. We use other websites and books to do this.
Tell: We always tell a parent, carer, trusted adult or phone Childline if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. We know that we can always report to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) if we are worried about online abuse or the way that someone is chatting online. https://www.ceop.police.uk/ceop-reporting/
In Autumn, we looked at the topic 'Meet the Flintstones'. We explored the stone age throughout our history lessons as well as using our new knowledge to write an exciting story in writing!
During project friday, we designed and made a stone age vehicle. Check out our pictures below!
Throughout the week, we have completed different activities and explored what anti-bullying means to us! We have had lots of discussions and took part in a brilliant workshop! We acted out some bullying scenarios and discussed our thoughts and feelings around this as well as look at what kindness means.
