Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!
We have a busy and exciting Autumn term lined up.  We will be learning about the Egyptians and will keep this page updated regularly with what we have been learning in Year 3.  
P.E will be on a Tuesday this term, so please make sure all children have a labelled PE kit (white t-shirt, blue/black shorts and black pumps).
Children will be given spellings and homework in their homework book every Friday, this needs to be returned on the following Thursday.
Please keep checking back at our page to see what we have been up to.
Miss Fearon and Mrs King
Have a look at our long term plan below to see what we will be learning in each subject this year.
Our Autumn planner is below. Check it out to see what we will be learning this term.
We have been working extremely hard at home as well as in school. Some of us have presented our Egyptian homework to the class and we are very proud of our work. Remember homework is due every Thursday. 
Our Autumn term spellings are below. Please make sure you learn these at home. Spelling tests are on Friday morning.
In PE we were using our team work skills to get across the hall (swamp) without getting our feet wet (touching the floor outside the hoops). We had to use our co-ordination skills and trust each other to help our team get across safetly. 
In maths we played a place value game. We worked in teams to make a 3 digit number. We had to use all our maths knowledge to help us (odds and evens, multiples of 10)
In our science topic 'forces' we have been looking at pushing and pulling. We made freeze frames of different everyday activities where we use these forces.
In music we have learning the song 'let your spirit fly' and we have been learning how to play the glockenspiel. 
In English we have been trying to find out the meaning of some new vocabulary by using dictionaries and online dictionaries on the I-pads. We learnt that 'colossal' means something very big and 'exotic' means somethings unusual and colourful.
In maths today we have been looking at number lines to 1000. We were estimating where numbers would fall in comparison to 0 and 1000.
In maths we have been using concrete resources to help us look at 10 more and 10 less of a number.
