Welcome to year 3’s class page!
Here at St. Joseph’s we aim to ‘have life and have it to the full’ in all areas of life at school.
We have a very busy year ahead of us. Year Three is the first year in the Junior’s/Key Stage 2 so it is going to be filled with hard work and lots of high expectations, however this will also be a very exciting year for us at St. Joseph's with lot’s to look forward to and enjoy.
We will be filling this page with our class news, pictures of all our learning fun, things to come later in the year and so much more. Do you have any wonderful ideas for this page? Why not let me know and we’ll keep adding our ideas.
Miss Foster and Mrs Dargon
Homework is VERY important to us at St Josephs!
- Spellings must be practised and learned ready for testing on Wednesdays
- Choose one task from the homework grid each week and bring the book to school each Wednesday, this will be returned to the children on a Friday.
- Reading every night is essential… and don’t forget to get your reading record signed!
- Then take an Accelerated Reader Test and see for yourself how much you’ve learned from the book!
- Swimming will take place on Monday afternoons. Don’t forget your swim kit; a towel, a swimming cap. trunks for boys and a swimming costume for girls (not a two piece)
- P.E. lessons are on Wednesday afternoons. You will need; a red polo shirt, black shorts (no branding) and black pumps for indoor P.E and trainers for outdoor P.E.
Every Friday we gather to watch a class assembly and to celebrate children’s achievements across the school.
Autumn Half Term
After having a VERY good half term it is time for a much needed break! Thank you for all of your hard work over the last few weeks, you have started the year REALLY WELL! Have a lovely week off, and I will see you all back refreshed and ready to learn just in time for a spoooooky Halloween on Tuesday 29th October.
We’ve had a BRILLIANT start to the year.
We’ve already been working hard on many exciting topics and developing our skills and knowledge through interesting activities. Take a look through our photographs to see our learning journey so far.
- We have been reading Roald Dahl’s ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We have really enjoyed reading this story, especially Miss Foster’s ‘Grandma’ voice. Whilst reading this book we have written our own diary entries, newspaper reports, and created our own Marvellous Medicine recipe’s.
- We’ve been working EXTREMLY HARD in our math’s lessons, for there have been lots of new things to learn! This term we are studying numbers and the number system. We have been using increasingly large numbers (up to 1000), practising our partitioning skills, ordering numbers and working with number lines.
Religious Education –
- This term we have been looking at ‘FAMILY’. We have studied our own family, our school family and Jesus’ human family. We wrote recipes for a happy family and used emojis to help us to write our own rules to live by that will create a happy home. We have really enjoyed this topic and have a new appreciation for the people around us and their importance in our lives.
The Wider Curriculum –
- History - Our topic this term has been the THE TERRIBLE TUDORS. We have created a family tree of the Tudor Royals, written diary entries as knights from the Battle of Bosworth field, created recipes to cure Tudor diseases and learned all about Tudor crimes and disgusting punishments.
