Welcome to Year 3 with Miss Dove
Welcome to the Year 3 Class pages. Please see our Information page and @Home section for useful resources and activities.
We would like every child in Year 3 to reach their full potential whilst having lots of fun being creative and expressing their individuality along the way! The class are very keen to learn new skills and are excited to put them in place, especially in writing. Year 3 love using ‘Maths No Problem’ and their lessons are engaging and very practical. This helps the children to understand and apply their mathematical knowledge and skills to their work. We are focusing on developing our love for books and reading. We enjoy a multi modal range of text types to enrich our reading and ignite our imagination. We like to share our opinions on whichever text we are looking at and make predictions based on information we know. Our topic work also inspires us to produce some fabulous pieces of writing and creative art work.
Year 3 Routines
Reading – we would like to encourage children to regularly read their books at home.
Father Kevin came in to school to pray the Rosary with the class. The children became a set of human rosary beads which helped them to focus on what to pray for.
The computers came in really useful when the children wanted to research different Saints in their RE lesson. They then made posters by copying and pasting pictures into a document and also added different fonts. The class produced some lovely work.
Recipe In RE
In RE the children worked in groups to create recipes for a happy family and put these on display in the classroom.
The children had a great time on Roald Dahl Day. Their science experiments included making cola erupt. See more pictures from the day in our Roald Dahl gallery.
Learning To Play Rugby
During PE, children in Year 3 have been learning how to throw a rugby ball as it is completely different to throwing any other kind of ball. Everyone is really enjoying rugby so far!
