Welcome to the Juniors! 

General Information

Welcome to our class page. You will find all of the things you will need to know throughout the year. Year 3 is a key year and involves the children taking greater responsibility for their own learning. That said, we are very keen to work together to help us 'to be the best that we can be'. Please feel free to contact me if you have something you wish to ask or would like to discuss. You can send a message on Seesaw or through the school office and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Homework
Homework will be sent out via Seesaw every Friday. I will let you know which pages will need to be completed and we ask you to upload a photograph of the completed pieces to Seesaw by Monday evening.
It is our expectation that all children complete their homework each week. Children who do not upload their homework by Monday evening will have to complete it in school during lunchtime.

Another fun filled week in year 3. We have been focusing on our presentation this week, look how beautiful our maths books are!. In Science we have been demonstrating our understanding of magnets by designing a game to show how magnets attract even through a non magnetic material. During our gymnastic lessons, we have been perfecting rolls, balances and movements. Have a look at the photographs below.
Wb. 1.11.21
We have had a great week! In English we have been using imperative verbs and adverbs if time. We used them in our writing to write a recipe for a meal during the Stone Age. How do you fancy some woolly mammoth curry or buffalo burgers with twig fries? We used the green screen to record our recipes.
 
We have also been looking at the magnetic force in Science and investigating the magnetic field around a magnet.
wb: 11.10.21
 This week in English we have been helping the Natural History Museum to identify remains that they believe could be from the Stone Age. We are going to write a non-chronological report for them next week.
In History we looked at lots of artefacts that date back to the Bronze Age. We had to discuss what they were and who would have used them. It was very interesting!
 
 
wb.04.10.21 We have had a brilliant, busy week this week...
Children have been continuing to learn more indoor athletic skills, they are getting so good at tagging during a relay lap now.
 
In Science the children investigated the different poles on magnets, they were encouraged to use the scientific language of 'attract' and 'repel' when describing what happened when the different poles were placed together.
 
As part of our History of the Stone Age, we were exploring how diets changed throughout the Stone Age periods, Children had to examine waste products to see if they could determine which period in History it was from.
 
In English we are continuing with our book 'The First Drawing' and we have been learning how to write sentences beginning with fronted adverbials for time and place.
Our History Topic is Stone Age to Iron Age and we have linked our text on English to this. We are using the book 'The First Drawing'
