Class Blog.



Each week, usually on a Friday, you will find an update about our weeks learning and adventures! Within this class blog I will summarise what we have been up to in our lessons, inform you of any WOW moments from the week and also remind you of any useful information, whether this be homework or dates. This information will also be posted on dojo so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via dojo or email.

And just like that the first full week of Year 3 is complete! The children have settled back into school life well and have adapted to the changes in routine well. I have been really impressed with their positive and mature attitude towards the rules and routines allowing all of the adults in Year 3 to feel excited about the year ahead.


This week the children have worked exceptionally hard in English and Maths. The children tried hard to apply the skills and knowledge they had learnt in Year 2 linked to word classes and place value and this supported them with their transition in skills and knowledge to the Year 3 objectives. We have had busy afternoons too. In our first History lesson we looked at timelines and even tried to draw our own - a tricky skill but one we achieved with some perseverance. In PSHE we looked at different emotions and tried to link them to different colours. In RE we shared our current understand on Christianity and in PE we focused on floor gymnastics and hockey. 

A few reminders:

  • Please can planners and reading books be in school every day. When you read with your child at home please sign their diary by ticking the rewards section and signing your name. 
  • Spelling rule for next week focuses on ‘u’ spelt ‘ou’. Engage with spelling lists on Spelling Shed.
  • Homework this week is an online task on Children's individual 


Have a lovely weekend everyone. See you on Monday! smiley

We have all had a lovely couple of days getting to know one another today and beginning to learn the rules and routines of year 3. The children were so excited to become juniors and behaved extremely well. We are all really excited to that official start of our Year 3 adventure on Monday. Have a restful weekend everyone and we look forward to seeing you again with your beaming smiles and positive attitudes. smiley
