In Classes 7 and 8, you will find Year 3. Miss Gascoigne and her Teaching Assistants Mrs Garner and Miss Sargeant are based in Class 7. Next door, in Class 8, are Mrs Pearson and Mrs Nosworthy and their Teaching Assistants Mrs Wilkinson and Miss Snell.
As part of our Book Week, Year 3 visited Reception to share some stories. The adults were so impressed with Year 3, who helped the younger children to recall their sounds and related action when looking through the phonics booklets. The children all seemed to really enjoy reading stories to each other and making new friends.
On Wednesday, Year 3 went to a football tournament at Neale Wade Academy. The sunshine was a pleasant bonus and made the afternoon even more enjoyable. Year 3 represented our school very well and we are proud of the effort they put in!
Year 3 have read a fantastic book called ‘How Did That Food Get In My Lunchbox?’ to start our week working on Healthy Food. Ask your child what they can tell you about certain foods come from (bread, apple juice, cheese, tomatoes, clementines, carrots and chocolate chips). We discussed which foods gave us certain nutrients, and how these help our bodies to grow and stay strong. As part of this work, we will be making a healthy sandwich each!
Year 3 2018: The Term so far...
We have been practising our Growth Mindset by exploring 'One Black Dot Can Be...' Ask us what we thought our dot would be!
In History we have been looking at The Stone Age. We have made cave paintings and have been completing English work based on The Croods using speech.
In Maths we have been working really hard with number and place value. Every Thursday we go swimming and everyone has been a super star! What a fabulous start to Year 3! We are very proud!
Year 3: 2017-2018 academic year.
Below are some examples of the learning that took place during the last academic year.
Year 3 have had a great day preparing for the Royal wedding by baking cakes. They also watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory after reading the book this term. We hope they enjoyed their treat!
This term, Class 7 and 8’s topic has been Where We Live. We have looked at areas in and around March and have been comparing our town to different places around the world.
We have also enjoyed Rainforest Week, where we built dens; created rainforest art and wrote about an exciting journey down the Amazon River.
During Book Week, Class 7 transformed into Hogwarts School and the children learnt spells, created potions and made their own wands. Class 8, meanwhile, entered the world of Dr Seuss and spent time creating Truffula Trees for The Lorax and designing posters encouraging people to look after the environment.
Year 3 also had an exciting trip to the Light Cinema in Wisbech, to attend the premiere of our films based on works by Roald Dahl. The children loved getting dressed up and walking the red carpet to the applause of their families.
