Year 3 become rock hunters



In Year 3 we kicked off our Science topic by looking at some rocks! We watched a video that showed us how to test if some rocks were hard or soft. We then sorted the rocks physically into categories that we decided ourselves. Some of us sorted them into hard or soft, some used colours. From this we learnt the names of the rocks and sorted them into a Venn diagram. 

Ceejay said “I can see parts of animal that can make up a rock.”

Our next lesson was an investigation on how waterproof rocks are. We used pipettes to drop water on to rocks and then we made close observations. 


Year 3 Maths Stay and Learn

Thank you to all of the parents and carers who came to the Year 3 Maths stay and learn last Tuesday.

Below is some information that was presented during the stay and learn.

As promised here is the link to the national curriculum year 3 expectations, scroll down to page 18 for year 3. Link As mentioned during the meeting government expectation is that any child working at an age appropriate level will have mastered all of their timetables up to 12 by the end of year 4.
By the end of year 2 they should have learnt their 2, 5 and 10.
By the end of year 3 they should have mastered their 3, 4, 8.
By the end of year 4 they should know them all.

How you can help your child at home


  • Support your child with using Rockstars times tables.
  • Talk about the time and make it the norm to read an analogue clock throughout the day.

  • Play other games such as Hit the button and board games. 
  • Encourage your child to write their times table out.
  • Check your child is secure with their number bonds to 100.

Rockstars
The children carry out a sound check every Friday, this (test) reflects the screening test they have to complete in Year 4 for the government.  When they play in the garage room these timetables should be  set at their ability and reflect the level they are currently working at.

Team work in Year 3

During a PSHE lesson the children in Year 3 demonstrated super reciprocity. They were asked to complete puzzles in a group, but in complete silence with no hand signals.

Madalina said “I just had to tell myself over and over not to talk, but in my head.” Hannah said “I didn’t have my own puzzle so I helped others with theirs.”

We will be continuing our PSHE topic on Getting On and Falling Out throughout this Spring term.

Year 3 Trip


Dear Parents and Carers,

We are delighted to inform you about an upcoming trip to The Natural History Museum in London on Tuesday 28th January. We will be leaving school promptly at 9 am and aim to return to school by 3 pm. We will be travelling by public transport. Therefore there will be no cost for the trip.

The children will be required to wear school uniform for the trip along with suitable footwear comfortable for walking. Furthermore, please ensure your child has a suitable coat.

Please ensure all permission forms are completed by Friday 17th January so that packed lunches can be ordered.


Yours sincerely,

Miss Taylor
