Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back to Year 3! The children have made a fantastic start this week and have impressed us both very much with their hard work and enthusiasm. Our topic for this half term is ‘What makes the Earth angry?’ which focuses on natural disasters including earthquakes and volcanoes. This week we began making our own volcanoes from papier mache which we will finish and then ‘erupt’ next week (Please see our class gallery for photos).

In Literacy we have begun reading ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ which will be our focus text for the first few weeks. Next week we will start to create story maps and adapt parts of the story. In Maths we are working on number and place value and next week will be ordering and comparing numbers to 1000.

Just a reminder that our class meeting is on Thursday at 2.45pm in the Year 3 classroom – We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Lemarie and Miss Shay
