Welcome to Year 3 Class website page.

Hello Year 3! 


Here is some general information to help you with our school and class routines: 


I am your Class Teacher Mrs. Wearden and Mrs. Troughton is our Teaching Assistant and Mr Mussell is your teacher on a Friday.  

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.

You may remember back in Autumn the children contacted the council to see if anything could be done about the fly tipping and dog poo in our area. Today was a fantastic day as we met with Sally Booth from the council to put up our own designed posters and a dog poo bag dispenser. As you are walking around the area, please look out for our signs and if you are out walking with you dog, please take a poo bag to pick up your dogs mess to keep our area clean and tidy.


Well done year 3 for making a difference to our local area!

Well being week

Year 3 had a lovely last week of half term learning about and understanding well being and mental health. Everyday we focused on a different area of wellbeing and learned about how we can keep our bodies and mind healthy by doing a range of different activities. Throughout the week we danced in class, played the balloon game, concentrated on our breathing in yoga, noticed colours around us in our environment, learnt new skills and donated money to charity. We also enjoyed a range of books which helped us talk about our emotions and gave us ideas on how we could improve our well being. 

This half term, Class three have been learning about the Stone Age...from how our ancestors lived to how they found food, the paintings they left in their caves and the things they built like Scarpa Brae and Stonehenge. They have created their own version of how we think Stonehenge used to look using salt dough, paints and lots of glue.

We have recently had a fantastic day creating fossil prints with our local artist Julia. 

Last 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!

End of term Worship which was planned and carried out by the children. The theme was 'Love one another.'
