Ash and Willow

It brings me great pleasure to welcome you to Year 3’s class page!

We have two Year 3 classes; Ash and Willow class. In Ash class we have Miss Hamid as the class teacher and in Willow class we have Mrs Tahir as the class teacher and Miss Walker is the teaching assistant.

We are really looking forward to this year and hope that the children will enjoy the teaching, learning and the range of exciting topics we have prepared for them. We love to see homemade projects in school and allow the children to tell the class all about them during ‘Show and Tell’.

We aim to make learning fun and focused for all children. We encourage children to become independent learners through the different activities prepared for them in the school day.

Spring Term

Year 3 have had a very exciting term in Year 3 full of fun, adventure and learning!

We first want to thank all the children who took part in the “Draw your Teacher” Competition. We are proud to display the winning entries below.

As we come to the end of our Aztecs topic it is important to look back at all the interesting activities we have completed over the term. Over the term we have covered Rainforests and the Aztecs.

Our Rainforest topic was a huge success as the children enjoyed learning about all the creatures and critters in the Rainforest. To get our topic off to a great start Ash class were very lucky to receive the skin of a real snake that was still intact! We were all really brave in touching it and watched a video on how snakes actually shed their skin. We have also been busy drawing Rainforest plants, writing postcards from the Rainforest and questions to scientists who are busy discovering new species in the Amazon.  You can see our Rainforest topic wall below.

In English, the children were busy writing Non-Chronological reports about a Rainforest animal. They included lots of detail on what the animal looks like, what it eats, where it lives and how to care for it. We also visited Tropical World and used our experience there to write a Non-Chronological report for a fictional creature. We had swimming bats, flying meerkats and magical shape-shifting butterflies! You can see some photos from our tropical trip below.

During our Aztec topic we have been writing our own adventure stories and making Aztec head dresses and figurines. We have learnt how to safely use the internet to conduct research on various areas of Aztec life. The children then used this research to make their own powerpoint about the Aztecs during computing.

In our maths sessions we have learnt how to tell the time, identified and described the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and learnt all about angles. We have also embedded key skills such as recognising the place value of a number, using written strategies for each of the four operations and applied these to word problems.

Finally, thank you to all the parents who supported their children for the extra homework opportunities. The Amazon fact files, stories and Aztec word searches were a lovely addition to our topic which we have been sharing with our classes.

Have a wonderful and safe Easter holidays,

From the Year 3 team!
