Class 3

Welcome to Year 3's Class page!


My name is Mrs Wilkinson and I am the class teacher. Mrs Calvert and Miss Barnes are our learning support assistants.

Our theme for this half term is: ‘There’s no place like home’. Our lead subjects within this theme are Geography and History. We’ll be covering map reading skills and studying our local area. Our outcome will be to launch a project to improve our local area.
 A list of five or six spellings will be given out each Monday and these will be tested on the following Monday. Children are encouraged to practise these during the entire week and use the words in context.
Our PE lessons are every Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure you have your PE kits in school. These can be left in your locker for the entire half term.
Home Reading
Please bring your home reader and reading record to school every day. We encourage reading at home and reading for pleasure. Any comments from parents/carers in the reading records are always welcome and much appreciated. Books are changed every Monday. Children will also have the opportunity to borrow books from our school library on Wednesday.
If you have any questions or wish to arrange a meeting, please feel free to make an appointment through the school office.

We look forward to working with you and your child.

In year 3 we’ve had a really exciting finish to our topic – There’s no place like home! We’ve been learning about the geographical features and the changes over the years in our local area and Blackburn. We’ve been using Google Earth and Google map, old and new photos and a range of maps to study the human and physical aspects of our local area. We’ve also been discussing what we’d like to change in our environment and how to achieve this. Our class decided on launching a litter picking afternoon to help keep our environment clean. On Wednesday, the 16th of October, Miss Sally Booth, the Education Officer from BWD Council visited us to talk about our environment and to share what we have learnt within our topic. She also lent us the necessary equipment, jackets and helped us pick litter around our school and church. A big thank you to Ms Booth because we really enjoyed our afternoon. We are very proud of ourselves for helping to keep our local area clean.

To conclude our topic Domestic Church - Family, the children planned a lovely prayer service on Friday 27th September.
