Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Your teacher this year is Miss Moores

I am honoured and excited to be leading our Year 3 team on our wonderful journey of learning this year. 

We have an exciting year ahead, with plenty of fun learning to do! 

 

 We  have spent the first few weeks of the term thinking about where we are and what we would like to achieve on our journey together. We have been thinking about 'The power of YET'...  Setting goals with a positive mindset of what we can achieve!

Take time to speak to your child about 'The power of YET' and ask them to explain it to you... it is a very powerful tool in achieving a positive mindset and a 'I can' approach to learning. πŸ€—

 

Autumn Term Learning

Our learning this term is based on the question 'What on earth?'

 

Within this question we will be exploring who first lived in Britain (StoneAge onwards) and where on earth Stone henge is.

 

We will be exploring some fantastic Power of Reading books, linked to our question, and completing writing tasks from them. 

 

This half term we will be writing stories, poems and diary entries.

 

 

 

In maths, we are focusing on number and place value. 

 

In Science, we are exploring Light this half term and Rocks in Autumn 2. 

 

Our current learning includes investigating light sources, reflection and the sun. 

We are really excited to begin our language learning journey in Year 3 and have already learnt lots of new words in French!

 

Ask your child to count to 10 in French...

Can they do it YET? ...

Don't worry if they can't, they understand the power of YET!

R.E. IS THE CENTRE OF OUR LEARNING AT ST MARIES

We have been carefully considering how we can aim to be Jesus' hands and feet on earth, in school and at home. We are considering God's message through the Holy scriptures, thinking in particular about God's messages about family, home and love. πŸ‘ͺ πŸ‘©‍πŸ‘§‍πŸ‘§ πŸ‘¨‍πŸ‘§‍πŸ‘§ 

We have been creating our own prayers πŸ™, thanking God and asking for His guidance in school and at home.
