I have spent some time reflecting this week on the progress the children have made since September. It has been such a privilege to see them mature and develop in to their life in the juniors. I am so incredibly proud of them all. This week has absolutely flown by and I sit here typing this feeling shocked that it is only one week to go until we break up for Christmas! We had a lovely assembly at the start of this week discussing the second week of advent and a beautiful advent service this morning before school in the hall. There will be another one next Friday at 8.15am - please come along if you can. We also had a very special treat today - watching the Reception nativity! It was wonderful.

Can I please remind you that it is the KS2 Advent Service on the 19th December at 2.30pm over at Church. Year 3 have the special job of acting out the Christmas story and they have been working super hard during rehearsals. I look forward to hopefully seeing you there.

In Maths this week we have been looking at fractions - recognising them as equal parts of a whole.

In English we have all now completed our STAR Reading tests and now have ZPDs. Everybody has done brilliantly - well done Year 3.

In Science we have been testing magnet strength and sorting magnetic and non magnetic materials.

In History we learnt about Skara Brae and started to create a news report on its discovery.

Award winners this week are:

Golden: Cianna

Maths: Isabella

No homework this week! Please could I ask, If possible, for the children to bring in a 2 litre (empty) milk bottle for Tuesday. We actually only need 15 altogether so please don’t worry if this isn’t possible.

Have a lovely weekend.

We have ended this week with a beautiful day here in school. This morning we went over to Church for a Mass celebrating the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. The children were beautifully behaved. We then took part in a procession back to school where Father brought the blessed sacrament in to the hall. He did this by putting it in a special vessel called a monstrance. Just after break our class went to the hall to take part in adoration. We silently prayed to Jesus and thought about Him filling us with his love. The children made me so proud. They were reflective and respectful throughout. Just before lunch we went back to the hall while Father performed Benediction (blessing). It truly was a lovely morning.

We welcomed Ellie the elf to school this week. She has been hiding from the children and they have been enjoying trying to find her. Each day the children are also opening up a door of our advent calendar and they are enjoying listening to the story of Mary’s Little Donkey. Whilst we have been getting in to the Christmas spirit in Year 3, we have also been remembering the true meaning of Christmas and have written our advent promises.

This week has also seen us starting to prepare for our Advent Service on the 19th December at 2.30pm. I was blown away by how our first rehearsal went earlier this week. I am excited to see the final result when they perform for you.

In Maths this week we have been looking at doubling and halving.

In Science we conducted an experiment on friction - ask the children to tell you their findings!

In English we have carried on with our work on information texts and have also started to complete our star reading tests (these will give the children a new zpd).

In Geography we focused on one European country and created a fact file.

Awards this week:

Maths: Eliza

Golden & Writing: these will be handed out in assembly on Monday

Please could I kindly ask you all to check your children’s PE hoodies. Isabelle’s has gone missing (it is named) and we are wondering whether it has been picked up by mistake. Thank you.

Have a lovely weekend.

We have had another busy week and it is going to start getting even busier as we start to prepare for Christmas. We have lots of fun activities over the next few weeks to look forward to including making Christmas cards and calendars.

Advent (and the new liturgical year) starts this Sunday. Our advent service will take place on the 19th December over at Church and will start at 2.30pm. Year 3 have the important job of acting out the Christmas story. We look forward to seeing you there.

In Maths this week we have looked at subtractions and we have also completed some Maths assessments. The children tried so hard and have done brilliantly; I am a very proud teacher this week!

In English we have continued our work on information texts and we should hopefully be starting to write our own next week.

In Science we have started a new topic - Forces & Magnets. We started this by creating a concept map of all the key vocabulary we will be using over the next few weeks. We will come back to this map at various points in the topic to see if we can make links between any of the vocabulary using our new knowledge. We then had a go at trying to identify the force acting on an object - a push or a pull.

In Geography we were looking at capital cities of Europe and had a go at identifying them on a map and then adding them on to our own maps of Europe. The children were great at this!

In History we looked at Stone Age houses and how they changed throughout the Stone Age period.

Award winners this week:

Golden: Kayden. For being such a kind and caring member of our class and trying so hard to shine his light for others.

Writing: no award this week.

Maths: Nathaniel. For super independent number line work.

Another week has passed in Year 3 and we are now only 4 weeks away from the end of this term. Time really has flown and with these darker nights now upon us it will be Christmas before we know it!

In Maths this week we have continued our number line work with a focus on placing three digit numbers on to a number line. The children have worked super hard on this and we are going to start thinking about rounding numbers next week. Can I please ask that all children are practicing their times tables throughout the week, using the grid that was sent home at the start of the year. Even if it is 5 minutes a day it will make a huge difference!

In English we have started a new topic on information texts. The children are going to be writing an a-z holiday guide in the coming weeks and I would be grateful if the children could bring in any holiday brochures they may have at home or leaflets regarding days out etc.

In Science we have started to look at soil permeability whilst also making sure that our compost bins are working and the worms are doing their job!

In R.E this week we went over to Church where Father Jim performed a Baptism for us so that the children could see what happens during this sacrament, as well as giving them a chance to see the signs and symbols of Baptism in use.

We were extremely lucky on Wednesday morning to be able to take part in a live broadcast of Romeo & Juliet performed by the RSC. We then came back to class and did a story circle of the play which helped the children to understand what they had seen.

Our award winners this week are:

Maths: Lennon. Lennon is a great mathematician and I am so impressed with the work he is producing during our Maths lessons.

Golden: Jack. Jack has had a fabulous week and has worked so hard to make the right choices. Well done!

Writing: Georgina. Georgina has made great progress in her writing this week and wrote a wonderful descriptive piece on the port of Ephesus from A Comedy of Errors.

We started the week with World Kindness Day. We made a special effort to be kinder to one another but we also discussed how we should be behaving this way anyway. We talked about how Jesus treated those around him and how he would never have been unkind to anybody.

On Monday we created some beautiful Remembrance Day art. We all created a ‘stained glass’ window with a remembrance day image and then used coloured tissue paper to decorate them. They look fantastic! We also painted some poppies using only dots.

In English this week we have written a descriptive piece of writing on the port of Ephesus from Shakespeare’s A Comedy of Errors. I have been absolutely blown away by the children’s writing and imaginations and I am so very proud of them all. I can’t wait to see their writing progressing even further this year.

In Maths we have been focusing on number lines and placing 2 and 3 digit numbers on them. We have also looked at 3D shape and made our own out of modelling materials.

In Science we made our very own compost bins! The children had a great time getting their hands dirty and even handled some tiger worms. Well done Year 3.

In Geography we took part in a Europe scavenger hunt using the ipads.

Our award winners this week are:

Golden - Isabelle. For being such a hard worker with an enthusiastic attitude to her learning.

Writing - Laciee. For producing some lovely writing so far this year and for always remembering her punctuation.

Maths - Nevaeh. For trying so hard in her Maths work and constantly trying to improve. A great attitude to have.

We had a very memorable week in school last week. It’s hard to know where to start!

Firstly, on Tuesday, we were treated to an outstanding performance of Shakespeare’s ‘A Comedy of Errors’ by the RSC. We were all absolutely blown away by the amazing acting and comedy involved.  A group of our KS2 children had the privilege of performing an ensemble piece at the start of the play and we were particularly proud of Eliza, Evie and Isabella from Year 3. They had rehearsed for weeks on end and it really paid off - they were little superstars! I hope some of you managed to see the play on Tuesday evening.

On Wednesday we travelled to Brockholes for our school trip. We had such a wonderful day! In the morning we built shelters and had a go at fire lighting, as if we were Stone Age people. It was so lovely to see the children share the knowledge they have learnt in our topic over the past few weeks. I was so incredibly proud of them all. In the afternoon we were looking at Rocks - classifying them and testing their permeability. We also visited the Brockholes stone circle and made rock pets! It was a very exciting day and we were all very tired on the coach home.

In Maths last week we continued to look at time with a focus of being able to tell the time to the nearest five minutes.

In English we have started to look at A Comedy of Errors and have been preparing to write a descriptive piece on the port of Ephesus.

In History we continued with our safari guides and have been learning about woolly mammoths, sabre toothed tigers and the giant sloth.

All in all we had a great week!

Award winners were:

Golden: all of Year 3 for their fantastic behaviour on our school trip!

Writing: Elliot

What a fabulous first week back we have had after half term. The children have come back well rested and ready for the term ahead.

This week has been very special as we celebrated the feast of All Saints. On Thursday morning we went over to Church for Mass; and we have also been looking at some of the different Saints in class. We have researched them and also created our own prayers to thank the Saints for the things we are grateful for in our lives. We also heard in Mass that this year is the Year of the Eucharist. We will be looking at this in more detail in class as the year progresses.

A letter has come home regarding our class trip next Wednesday. Please ensure all slips and monies are returned to school by Tuesday at the latest. All relevant information is on the letter.

In Maths this week we have been looking at time, in particular quarter past, half past and quarter to.

In English we have finished our fables and we will be starting to learn all about Shakespeare’s ‘A Comedy of Errors’ next week.

In Science we have learnt all about Mary Anning who was one of the greatest fossil hunters in the world. The children were fascinated to learn about her discoveries.

In History we have learnt about Stone Age animals and we will be creating a safari guide about them next week.

We have also started a new subject - Geography. We are going to be learning all about Europe this term.

Our award winners this week are:

We have had another busy week full of great learning! I can’t believe we are less than two weeks away from the end of our first half term. The day after we break up - Friday the 19th October - we will be having our school parents day. Information will be sent out to you shortly about this. I am looking forward to meeting you all properly and discussing your child and their progress.

What we have been learning about this week…

In Maths we have been using a number square to add and subtract two digit numbers from each other. We have also started to focus on our times tables and their corresponding division facts.

In English we have continued to look at conjunctions and have also done some character analysis of some characters in the fables we have been looking at in class. The children’s vocabulary is really starting to grow, I’m very impressed!

In Science this week we have been learning all about the fossilisation process. This can be tricky to understand but the children blew me away with how quickly they understood this and were able to order the steps in their books.

In History we were hunter gatherers for the day and tried some of the food that they would have gathered. We were very adventurous and tried dates, figs, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. The children were very brave and tried these foods even though they didn’t look very appealing! We also created a stone age menu.

In R.E. we have started to learn about Baptism and how this sacrament brings us in to the Christian family. We have spoken about how we can live our lives like Jesus and follow in his footsteps. I have asked the children to ask you why their name was chosen for them - does it have a meaning or was it because you just liked the name?

The children have brought home a letter today regarding the harvest. The children have been asked to bring in a tin of fish or vegetables to join the school collection which will then be taken to a local food bank. All donations are greatly appreciated. If these items could be brought in to school from next Friday the 12th October. This is an important time in the year and a time for us to reflect on how we can help others less fortunate than ourselves.

The children brought home on Monday a spelling sheet and a times tables sheet. Please can the children spend 5 minutes or so each night practicing these as they will have a short test on a Friday to complete (they will be tested on all spellings highlighted in green and a random selection of times tables questions). I understand that the children do also have homework to complete as well as daily reading; however this extra work at home will benefit your child throughout the year greatly.

Please see the homework tab of the website for details of this weeks tasks. 

Award winners this week:

Golden - Sienna

Maths - Jensen

Writing - Declan

A huge well done also to those children currently taking part in our Shakespeare production - they were featured in the newspaper this week.

Have a lovely weekend.

It has been another busy week in Year 3. Time really is flying and the children are enjoying the challenges that life in the juniors brings.

In Maths this week we have been looking at place value and learning to understand what the value of each number is in a three digit number. We have also learnt about how to work out if a number is greater than or less than another number. The children are working super hard in their Maths work and this is really paying off! Well done Year 3.

In English this week we have been carrying on looking at Fables but with more of a grammar focus. We have done further work on inverted commas and have started to learn about conjunctions and how we can use these to join two single clause sentences together.

In Science we have been learning about the permeability of rocks. We conducted an experiment where we put different rocks in to water and noted whether there were any bubbles coming off the rock or not. If there were bubbles then the rock was permeable, and if there wasn’t then the rock was impermeable.

In History we have continued to be archaeologists and we had a go at matching artefacts to their descriptions. This was quite tricky as it required teamwork but we got there in the end!

In R.E. we had Father Jim visiting us to answer the questions we thought of last week for him. The children were fascinated by what he had to say and thoroughly enjoyed having him in school to visit us. We are going to start learning about Baptism next week and about how this is our welcome in to the Christian family.

Our award winners this week are:

Maths: no award this week due to our welcome assembly

Golden: Adam

This week we have been learning about the importance of having a growth mindset. We have learnt that the brain is a muscle and that we are not born ‘smart’. The more we use our brain, the stronger and smarter it gets. That is why it is important to challenge ourselves and not give up - if we do give up our brain becomes lazy! The children have really got on board with this and we will be doing lots more work on this as the year progresses.

We have done lots of super learning in Year 3 this week and I am so proud of all of the children for how hard they have worked and for the effort they have been making. It is not easy transitioning from Year 2 to life in the juniors but they are all taking it in their stride.

In Maths this week we have been focusing on adding and subtracting a one digit number from a two digit number.

In English we have continued to look at Fables and have done some role play around this. We have also been learning about inverted commas and when we can use these in our writing.

In Science we did an experiment around how rocks can change over time and learnt all about erosion.

In R.E. we have devised some questions to ask Father Jim as he is visiting our class next Friday. This ties in to our learning around our Christian family and who makes up that family.

In Art we have been doing some colour mixing and learning about Vincent Van Gogh.

In History we were archaeologists for the day and we were looking at some artefacts to decide what we could deduce from them.

All in all a very busy but fun week!

Our award winners this week are:

Maths - Brodie

Golden - Molly

Our second week in Year 3 has really flown by. Before we know it, it will be Christmas! The children have had another fabulous week of learning and are really growing in their maturity and behaviour each day. This week we created our class rules so that we can understand what we need to do to be a good member of Year 3.

We also took part in a class vote to decide which children were going to represent our class on the school council. Molly and Adam were the chosen children - a huge well done to both of them! I know they will be fabulous school council members.

In Maths this week we have been looking at our number bonds to 20 as well as adding a one digit number to a two digit number. Some of us found this a little bit tricky but we applied our growth mindsets and we got there in the end.

In English we have started a new topic on fables. The children worked in groups to perform a fable, such as the boy who cried wolf, and then they had to match the moral to the fable. Their performances were fantastic!

In Science we have continued our work on Rocks and have been trying to use scientific vocabulary to describe different rocks.

In R.E. we have been thinking about why we go to Church and special occasions in our own lives that have brought us there, such as Baptisms and Weddings.

Our certificates this week were awarded to:

Golden Award - Declan

Maths Award - Nathaniel

We have had a great first week in Year 3. The children have been fantastic to teach and they are so eager to learn! The children have settled in beautifully and are taking the move to the juniors in their stride. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and what it will bring.

In Maths this week we have started by recapping our number bonds to 10 and then looking at our number bonds to 100. The children impressed me with their knowledge and hard work.

In English we have focused on reading and spelling - please see my separate blog post about Accelerated Reader for more information about our school reading scheme.

In Science we have started our topic on Rocks and the children enjoyed sharing what they already knew about this subject and what they wanted to find out.

In R.E. we have started to think about our Christian family and special times we have spent with our own families. The children's contributions to discussions around this were so lovely and heartfelt, they really made me smile!

Please see the homework tab of the Year 3 page for details of this weeks homework.

If you would like to discuss anything with me please feel free to speak to me at the end of the school day.

Have a great weekend.

This week the children will be bringing home their new reading folder along with a book from our Accelerated Reader scheme. The way the scheme works is that the children take an online reading test which gives them a ZPD (zone of proximal development - a range of books that will challenge your child without causing any frustration). This is in the form of a number range and each child will have a different ZPD. This is because the test looks at the children's own personal reading skills and determines from that what range of books they can read. Please note this number is not a reading age. For example; a ZPD may be something like 1.8-2.4. All of the children have now completed this test.

The books we have in school have a corresponding ZPD attached to them and your child will be able to pick books to read from within their own ZPD. Initially, your child will be picking books from the lower range of their ZPD and over time will start to work towards the top end of their ZPD.

Once the children have read a book they will take a quiz online. Each book has a certain number of points attached to it and the children will gain a proportion of these points depending on how they do on the quiz. The quiz is designed to test the children's comprehension of the book they have just read.

The children will be bringing these books home to read and will also be bringing home their reading log. I have asked the children to make notes in their reading log each time they have read the book to keep track of what is happening as they will be able to refer back to these while they are quizzing. I have suggested that the children make notes after every few pages or after each chapter if that applies.

If you do have any questions regarding this I am always available at the end of each school day once the children have been collected.

Thank you.

The highlight of our week has definitely been Sports Day! All the children tried their absolute best and didn't give up. I was so proud of them all. Well done to all of the children for also showing fantastic teamwork and cheering their team mates on. In the end Layton won the KS2 trophy which was well deserved!

In Maths this week we have been learning about division. The children have found this tricky but we have used our growth mind sets and will continue to look at this next week.

In English we have started to look at a new text - Escape from Pompeii. This is a story about two children who fled Pompeii when Vesuvius erupted in AD79. It ties in beautifully with our current History topic (Romans) and Geography topic (Volcanoes). The children have written a setting description this week and will write their own narratives based on the story over the next couple of weeks.

In History this week we have been thinking about how we know that the Romans existed which led us on to thinking about archaeologists and what evidence they have found when digging up sites. We played a Roman themed Battleships style game which we all enjoyed!

This morning we went over to Church to take part in the Solemn Exposition. The children were so beautifully behaved and respectful, well done Year 3.

I can't believe we break up for summer 2 weeks today - this year has really flown by!

Awards this week go to:

Maths: Liliana

Writing: Naomi

Golden: All of Year 3 for an amazing Sports Day!

This week we have continued to learn about the Romans. We made our very own Roman shields which took quite a lot of hard work! We tried to create our shields so that they looked just liked the ones the Romans would have had. Once they had finished we went outside to attempt to create the 'Testudo' (tortoise) formation that the Romans were famous for. We did a great job!

In Maths this week we have been learning about different types of lines - vertical, horizontal, parallel, diagonal and perpendicular. We had fun on the infant playground trying to spot as many of these lines as we could.

In English we have finished our instructions and they are now edited. I am so impressed with the children's writing - they have worked very hard to use as many features of instruction writing as possible. If we ever cross a woolly mammoth; we will now know how to wash it!

In Science we have been looking at the eatwell plate this week and what foods we need to eat to have a balanced diet. Next week we will be making models of balanced meals.

We have also been practicing for Sports Day. Just a reminder that this is on the 5th July at 9.30am. Please come along to support the children.

This morning we all attended Mass for the solemnity of St Peter and St Paul. The children were beautifully behaved and I couldn't have been prouder of them.

Awards this week:

Maths: Audrey

No other awards have been given out this week due to our Mass this morning.

To start our week we had a go at following a set of instructions to create our very own woolly mammoths using milk cartons, tissue paper, card and pipe cleaners. The children did a fantastic job and they are now on display in our classroom. Today we have planned our very own set of instructions and we will be writing these next week - all based on the book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'.

In Maths we have started to look at 3D shapes and their properties. We were very good at this! The children can confidently name lots of 3D shapes as well as describing their properties. Can you spot any 3D shapes in your house?

In Science we have continued our animal and human nutrition topic and are enjoying our roles as personal trainers. We have been busy compiling some data for our 'clients' which we will present in a few weeks time.

I have been super impressed this week with the children's positive attitudes and hard work. Well done Year 3.

Award winners this week are:

We have had a very exciting week in Year 3...I don't know where to start!

The children were very lucky to have an artist come in to our class on Tuesday morning to give a workshop to the children and to ask them to create some pieces of art for a Wordpool event coming up in July (a leaflet has come home with your child today). There was a circus theme and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Similarly, we were thrilled to welcome a lady called Emily in to our school this morning who is a storyteller. Emily shared with the school a history of the Blackpool Tower Circus through a wonderful story about  a girl called Mary - ask the children to share this story with you. The children then had the opportunity to write a postcard describing an act from the circus, as if they had been in the story like Mary. These postcards will be on display at the Wordpool event in July in Stanley Park along with their circus artwork they completed earlier in the week.

On Thursday we had the privilege of going to St Mary's for a Mass with other Year 3 classes from our local Catholic schools. Our new Bishop, Paul Swarbrick, led the Mass and it really was a very special occasion. Our Year 3 class led the post communion reflection with a beautiful rendition of 'Love, Love' which they performed so well. After the Mass, we had a picnic lunch and then had the chance to play outside in Christ the King's wonderful outdoor area. I was very proud of all the children who represented our school beautifully.

In Maths this week we have continued to learn about the grid method when multiplying.

In English we have started to look at a new text - How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth - and will be creating our own instructions based on this next week. As per my text earlier this week, if the children could please bring in an empty and clean milk carton on Monday that would be great as we are going to be making our very own woolly mammoths.

No homework this week - however, please ensure your child is reading every day and making notes accordingly.

No awards were handed out this week due to just returning from half term and our visit from the storyteller this morning.

Have a wonderful weekend!

This will just be a very short and sweet post to wish you all a happy and healthy half term!

I have sent the children home with two letters - one regarding an after school club starting after half term and one regarding a mass we have at St Mary's the week we return. If your child wishes to take part in the after school club they need to return the attached health form on our first day back as it starts the following day. The St Marys mass slip also needs to be returned on the first day back.

No homework over half term - but lots of reading please.

The highlight of our week was going to the tennis club on Wednesday for our final tennis lesson. The children were so well behaved and sensible, and once we got there they played some fantastic tennis. It was such a hot day but there was no complaining at all! I have since sent a letter home with the children from the tennis club detailing some lessons they do there - there is a free one on a Thursday so I do hope some of the children consider going as they seemed to have really enjoyed learning this new sport.

In Maths this week we have finished our topic on time and I am so proud of all of the children who have persevered and shown great resilience during this tricky topic. A lot of us have found it hard but we have come through the other side! Well done Year 3.

In History this week we have learnt about Roman homes and designed our very own.

In Science we have started new topic looking at animals and their skeletons, as well as looking at what they eat. We are going to tie this in with the human diet also.

I was exceptionally proud of all the children who last week took their First Holy Communion. They all looked fantastic and it was truly a lovely service. The children have worked so hard to get to this point and I am so happy that I got to be a part of it. We have the remainder of our group taking their First Communion this weekend so I am looking forward to celebrating with them.

Our award winners this week are:

Golden - all of Year 3 (for fabulous behaviour on our trip)

Our 4 day week really flew by. I hope you all enjoyed a nice three day weekend. To start our week the children continued to learn all about mountains and volcanoes in their new Geography topic. They also drew the Mona Lisa in their Art lesson - there were some very impressive attempts!

In English this week we created actions to the poem we have been looking at in our poetry topic - the Water Cycle - and then performed them. In Maths we are finishing up our topic on time and will be looking at roman numerals on an analogue clock next week.

I have been really impressed with the children's tennis skills in their weekly lesson. We definitely have some natural players in the class! The children really enjoy these sessions and towards the end of term we will be heading over to the tennis club for our final lesson.

In History this week we were looking at Roman clothing. The children made their own brooches and really enjoyed dressing up in a toga!

Award winners this week (no Maths or Writing awards due to Pop Idol auditions and a shorter week):

Golden - Gabriella

On a final note...I am a little disappointed with the amount of children who are not reading daily at home. I understand that we all lead busy lives but even if the children read for ten minutes before bed it would be greatly appreciated by myself and very beneficial for your child.

No homework this week!
