Welcome to Canada Class!

Year 3




Welcome to Canada! This is home to another brilliant Year 3 class. In 2019, we have our new teacher, Mrs McGowan to show us the ropes. We also receive super support from Mrs Sedgewick  during the week too. 


We hope you enjoy finding out all the wonderful things we learn and do in our class!


We have P.E. on Monday (indoor) and Tuesday (outdoor) so please make sure P.E kits are in school ready for these lessons.







Our Topic this term is all about Buildings through time.

Week 2

Our first full week is complete! The class have been introduced to the houses of the Stone Age period.  Maybe you could ask them what these (not 1, not 2, not even 3) 4 different houses looked like in the Stone Age development? In Maths, we have been looking at different ways to represent a number.  How many can you think of?  Roman numerals, tallies... the list might be endless!  We have also started to look at diaries of events that have happened, with a particular focus on a Lighthouse Keeper's recount.  Why not start a diary at home, of the exciting events in your day?  Have a super weekend!

Fresh Starts

Welcome Canada class!  Your Junior adventure starts here and we can't wait to learn lots of interesting facts and develop super skills together this year.  We have plenty of exciting things to learn and do in 2019, starting with some brilliant "Buildings" and seeing the "Light" in science. Tune in next week to see how we get on...
