Brilliant start to the year in 3B!


A very warm welcome to our blog! Here you will find weekly updates of what we’ve been up to in Year 3B!

Our new term has started of brilliantly and it was lovely to meet so many of you on Wednesday when bringing the children to class! The children have taken the transition from Y2 to Y3 in their stride and have settled seamlessly into our new rules and routines! The children have already earned themselves SIX gold cards and countless Championship Points which is fantastic – I think theyre starting as they wish to go on!

In English, we are inspiring the children to become writers using our focus text ‘Ug – Boy Genius of the Stone Age’ by Raymond Briggs. This text of course, links to our new topic ‘The Stone Age’ and teaches the children about this time period through the art of fiction. This week the children have read their new book, generated questions about it and given opinions and reasons why they liked or didn’t like the book! (Thankfully we all liked it!)

In Maths, the children have been recapping on their number bonds to 10 and 100 before using these skills to add and subtract. I have been really impressed with the children’s resilience in this area.

Our new topic is ‘The Stone Age’ and the children have enjoyed absorbing themselves in their learning, reading books and using the atlases to compare what the land used to look like millions of years ago.

Championship Winner!

This week Harry made it to the top of our chart – well done!

Freddy Frog!

At the end of each day, a different child will take Freddy Frog home for the night. The children are chosen for displaying our 3P’s (Pride, Politeness, Positivity). This week, Rhianen took him home for taking pride in her Maths work, Donny took him home for always being polite and Harry took him home for showing great positivity.

PE and swimming!

In Y3, the children have PE on a Wednesday and Friday so will need their kits for both days.

Every Monday afternoon we go swimming and the children will need to bring their swimming kit, along with a towel. Jewellery should not be worn and must be removed before the children come to school on this day.

Home reading books!

In Y3 the children can change their reading books whenever they want to! The more reading the better! When they have completed a book, they should bring it in and put it in our reading box. We will then change the books before the end of the school day.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will see you on Monday for another hard working week, full of learning!

Miss Andrew 🙂
