Year 3

Welcome to Year 3. We have two teachers. Mrs Parkes will teach on a Monday, Tuesday and some Wednesdays. Mrs Bailey teaches  on some Wednesdays, Thursday and Friday. The teaching Assistant who will be working with us every morning is Mrs Baker.

Over the first half term our topic is Predator. Throughout the topic we will learn all about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator. In science we will be sorting animals into different categories, food chains and habitats. We visited The Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Monday 2nd October where we learnt more about predators and prey.

In the second Autumn term we will begin our new Novel Study, The BFG. We will study poetry, write stories and in our science work will investigate sound. In our topic work we will be learning about the Egyptians.

In English we will be studying the books Zoo and Gorilla by Anthony Browne as part of our Novel Study looking at themes such as animal captivity, relationships and imagery.

In Maths Mrs Bailey will be focussing on Place Value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division. Mrs Parkes will be working on measures.

In Year 3 Mr Smith will teach us P.E on Mondays and Thursdays.

On a Friday we have our music lesson taught by Mrs Thompson-Smith.
