WELCOME TO YEAR 3
St. Edmund's Class
The Curriculum newsletter contains all of the information on what the children will be learning this term and our PE days are on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week. Homework will continue to be set on a Wednesday and will be due in on the following Monday. It is very important children are also using Mathletics as part of their homework.
Year 3 had a very exciting week 3. Continents work is over (for now) and we have began all our subjects, officially!
We did some hands on learning about 'more or less' in Maths and learnt lots of new adjectives in English!
We have had a fun, busy week learning about Mexico in our continents unit! Have learnt about Mexican Geography, History, Culture, Artists and lots more!
Have continued our work on Place Value in Maths and in English been focusing on persuasive writing with our text flooded!
We also began PE which is very exciting for our students! We have had lots of students getting the 'Star of the Day' award so keep up the good behaviour year 3!
Thank you St Edmonds.
Good afternoon parents!
For those who I haven't had the opportunity to meet yet my name is Mr Ewan MacDonald and I am the class teacher of Year 3 St Edmonds.
We have had a very exciting, busy week in year 3 in our new classroom and learning our new routines.
In English we have started started our new whole school text 'Flooded' and have made some interesting predictions and inferences from the pictures in the text.
In Maths we have started our unit on place value and were focusing on number lines.
This week and next Year 3 has North America for our Continents unit. We started learning all about Canadian history, culture, geography and art. Next week we focus on Mexico which is exciting!
In RE we are learning about Domestic Church and Family. We had interesting discussions on what makes a house a home and about our Year 3 Gospel Value of Compassion.
In Science we did a whole school experiment using milk, food dye and soap to see how the reaction caused creates amazing artworks.
Next week we officially start our PE, Music, Computing subjects and more!
The students have had an amazing week and I'm already very proud of how well they have settled into their new class and started maturing into Key Stage 2!
Thanks Year 3!
