Welcome to Year 3 Class website page.
Our Lady's School is a caring family, where, with Jesus in our hearts, we value everyone and encourage them to be the best that they can be.
Here is some general information to help you with our school and class routines:
I am your Class Teacher Mrs. Wearden. Mr. Bennison and Mrs. Troughton are our Teaching Assistants. On Thursdays and Fridays Mrs Carlin.
You will have two hours of PE per week (Thursday and Friday). You will need to come in to school in your PE kit (this could be anything suitable to do P.E. in such as tracksuits, leggings and trainers etc.). You do not need to bring in your school uniform.
Homework will be set every Thursday on Seesaw as well as your reading book every night please. As well as reading your home reading book you will have an Accelerated reader book that you may take home to read. Please bring your book bags with your home reader and accelerated reader to school every day. Books will be changed weekly.
Spelling will be introduced at the beginning of the week and we practise the words daily using different activities. These will also be set as homework on Seesaw. There will be a test every Monday morning.
Times tables will be practiced daily. The children should have learnt the 2, 5 and 10 times tables from year 2 and in Year 3 we will move on to learning 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

Last half term we went on a local Geography walk of our area. We made links between features observed in our environment to those on maps and aerial photos. On our walk we discussed what we liked in the area and what we would like to see improved. From this we drew maps and wrote letters to the council. We asked if they could please remove the fly tipping that we had seen and also place more dog poo signs and bins in the area as there was a lot of dog poo around the paths and on the grass. Sally Booth who works for Blackburn council contacted us straight back and we had a zoom meeting with her. We were so glad to hear that the fly tipping has now been collected and this half term we are going to be working with the council to design and put up information signs around the estate. This is very exciting so please look out for the children's signs coming soon. They have made a difference to the local area and we are really proud of them!
