Dear Parents, This was the overview of Year 3 for the first half of the Spring term 2021. Obviously there needs to be some adjustments now due to the lockdown/home learning situation.

Our Year 3/4 Bubble walked to Saint Marie's church for Mass. Father Joseph also told us some more about Baptism to help us with our R.E work.

Our 'Brighten up for CAFOD' day started with an assembly. We raised lots of money for CAFOD and parents were very generous with their donations of food for The Brick.

A fabulous day of outdoor learning! Year 3 worked in teams to build shelters. They sat inside them and did some story telling. They made some Stone Age jewellery from animals teeth (clay really) and carved arrow heads for weapons to hunt with (from soap!).

Dear Parents,

 

We will be having spelling homework weekly. This will not be learning the spellings for a test as we have done in the past. Instead your child will bring home a purple exercise book and will find a list of spellings on our class page on the website. These words are ones we will have worked on all week in our spelling sessions. Your child needs to write each of the spellings out in a sentence of their own.  This will ensure they are practising writing the word in context, practising their handwriting and their punctuation. As we progress through Year 3, there will be a different focus for the sentences. The purple spelling homework books should be brought into school every Monday with the completed homework.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Jackson

New Year 3 Class

Dear Year 3 Children and Parents,

 

Welcome back!

We had a lovely few days last week settling back into school. It was wonderful to see the children looking happy and refreshed after the summer.

Our P.E days will be Wednesday (with Wigan Athletic) and Friday (with Mrs Whittle) and these will start the week beginning the 7th September. You will need to come to school wearing your P.E kits on these days.

Just a reminder to bring your coat and water bottle. Nothing else is needed at the moment, but we will be giving out reading books and home-school diaries very soon. 

Parents - if you need to contact me please phone the school office or email me -

Best wishes,

 

Mrs Jackson
