Welcome to Year 3
Hello and welcome to Year 3 with Miss Taylor, Mrs O'Dea and Mrs Wilson!
Year 3 is an exciting time for everyone as the journey through Key Stage 2 begins and the children really develop the skills of independent learning. We will, of course, be having lots of fun along the way.
This term we will be focussing on our EXPLORE project which is a geography-based project. Children will learn all about where we live by exploring the different cities, continents and regions across the United Kingdom. We will help our characters in the text ‘Voices in the Park’ who get lost (!) and need some help with map reading and knowing how to read a compass. We will also be learning more about our own county of Nottinghamshire and different landmarks in our home county and across the UK - before exploring the wider world after half term.
When reading with your child, please log this in your child’s planner as it helps us to keep track of how they are getting on! In Year 3 there is a big focus on comprehension (as well as word reading). Therefore, please support your child at home by asking them questions about what has happened or encouraging them to predict what might happen next based upon what they have read. Children can change their books throughout the week whenever they need to.
PE will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays and children should come into school in their PE kits on these days.. Please also ensure that long hair is tied back on these days and that children are not wearing any jewellery (especially earrings).PE will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays and children should come into school in their PE kits on these days..

Class Two had a virtual synagogue visit today, with Norman from Nottingham Liberal Synagogue. The children asked some super questions and were excited to learn about the synagogue through pictures and artefacts.
The Hanging Gardens of Class 2
As part of our Science topic, we have been growing plants in Class 2. We collected plastic bottles and planted them with a variety of seeds which we have hung from our balcony area to create our own recycled planters. Hopefully our seeds will blossom into a fabulous hanging garden soon!
The year 2 children have been very busy this half term learning all about the world. We created our own globes using balloons and carefully placed on each continent and the equator. We read "The world came to my place today" and learnt all about where different items come from. We...
