Welcome to Year 3. We are also known as the Owl's Class. 

Our teachers are Mrs Hollas and Mrs Walsh.

Mrs Walsh teaches Maths and Science.

Mrs Hollas teaches Literacy, History and Geography.

We both teach the other subjects. 

We are also supported by Mrs Butterworth and Mrs Chard.

Our PE day is Wednesday. Please make sure that your child brings their PE kit, including pumps on that day. 

If your child has pierced ears, please remove the earrings before school in the morning. 

Reading books need to be brought into school each day. Now that your child is in Year 3, they are responsible for changing their books themselves. As long as their Home reading Journal has been signed three times by an adult at home and they have finished the book then they can choose another one. 

If you have opted in to homework, then this can be found each Friday on the Year 3 Google Classroom. This needs to be completed and submitted by the following Wednesday.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us. 


Growth Mindset

In Year 3, we love our children to be independent learners. We have talked about what it means to have a Growth Mindset and understand the power of 'Yet.' We know that learning may be tricky and that we can't always do things - yet! If we keep trying and practising our skills we will continue to make super progress.  We know this works by the number of house points and certificates that we achieve.

Our Learning

Take a look at our curriculum map below which details what we learn in each subject over the course of the year. Here we are enjoying the different topics we learn. Keep an eye out for pictures and information showing our learning.

As part of our school's celebration of WORLD BOOK DAY, we visited Nelson Library. We found out all about the library, were treated to a performance of Roald Dahl's Jack and the Beanstalk AND completed a scavenger hunt round the library. Have a look at our trip below. 


Year 3 were thrilled to welcome family members to showcase what they had learnt in the science topic on magnetic forces. In groups, the children had designed and made games and activities which taught the player about magnetic forces. Over 20 friends and family members came and spent an enjoyable hour being taught by the children and all had great fun learning together. 


We have been learning about how we can use levers and linkages in DT. We created our own moving pictures for a prt of the story Little Red Ridind Hood. We then used what we had learnt to make our own movable Easter Cards. Have a look at a few of the examples below.
