Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Your teachers in Year 3 are Miss MacPherson and Mr Smith, supported by Miss Hallam.

Year 3 are beginning 2018 by looking at the second of their 3 Amazing Authors. The term starts with us looking at the Flat Stanley collection of stories written by Jeff Brown. As we move into February we will begin our second main topic of the year 'Who You Gonna Call!?'. Expect visitors coming into school as well as our annual trip to the Sheffield Emergency Services Museum.

English

The Flat Stanley collection written by Jeff Brown will be the focus of all of our writing in January before we begin to write newspaper articles, information texts and poetry based on the Emergency Services.

Maths

2018 begins with a focus on measuring length, mass and capacity. We will be measuring with rulers, scales and beakers at the same time as baking and playing with water :)

We then move back to our written methods of multiplication and division so keep practising those times tables!
