Welcome to Year 3. We are your teachers this year: Mrs Rafferty, Mr Entwistle and Miss Friswell.
Year 3 is an important year because you will be making the exciting jump to Key Stage 2. We will be working with you to improve your literacy and numeracy as well as teaching you lots of new and interesting things.
Just to give you a taster of what you can look forward to this year; in numeracy we will become experts on comparing numbers up to 1000, learn more of our times tables and look at 2D and 3D shapes. In literacy, we will learn how to write a diary and read a book all about Greek myths.
There are many exciting topics that we will learn about including Gods and myths, how rivers are formed and we even look at street artists on a visit to Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Please keep checking on all of our news.
Year 3 went to the Northern Quarter in Manchester to look at all the street art, then we visited the Manchester Central Library to research the history of Manchester.
Year 3 – Predator Visit
On Wednesday, as part of our Predator topic, Year 3 had a visit from lots of little predators. Andrew from ‘Animals In Tuition’ brought his pet predators into school for us all to see, touch and hold. Some of us were more scared than others – even the teachers!!
Don’t worry though, none of these animals chose to eat any of us! We got to see Scooby Doo the Gheko, Mr Tickle the Royal Python, Charlotte the Tarantula, Tom the Blue Tree Frog and we also got to see a Tailless Whip Scorpion! They were all so friendly and really interesting.
Hope you enjoy our photos!
Last term, 3S were looking at creating and editing videos as part of our computing Curriculum. Throughout the term we became producers of videos and look at presenting videos in different sporting environments – like our own mini-commentators.
As an end to our project we decided to produce our own ‘Mannequin Challenge’ video and then we edited this video with a title page and credits. Hope you enjoy it!
Year 3 visited Sale Waterpark as part of their topic, 'Flow'. They had a fantastic time conducting science investigations and sketching the landscape.
