Welcome to Year 3's Class page!

 

My name is Mrs Wilkinson and I am the class teacher.

 

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.
 
Homework
 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.
  
P.E.
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 enjoyed trialling our recipes in preparation for our healthy picnic on Friday the 13th of December. We made potato salad, pasta salad, fruit salad and cheese and ham sandwiches. We used simple cooking techniques such as boiling and also tried out our cutting, chopping , mixing and peeling skills. We were pleasantly surprised with how delicious all the food was despite using some ingredients that we had never tasted before such as chives . wholemeal pasta and crème fraiche. The best part was eating it all!

In year 3, we’ve been exploring the works of sculptures and artists like Claes Oldenburg, Renoir , Monet and Andy Warhol to inspire our own sculptures of healthy food items from an eatwell plate. We’ve used clay to design and create some of our favourites for our art and design exhibition to be held alongside our healthy picnic on Friday the 13th of December at 2 pm. We’ve had fun experimenting with clay and using different techniques such as rolling, joining and creating textures and shapes.

In year 3, we had a very exciting start to our topic for this half term – Healthy humans. We learnt about two very different artists – Renoir and Andy Warhol. We drew fruits and vegetables using a variety of media such as charcoal, pencils, pastels, chalk and biros. As our end of unit outcome is to organise a healthy picnic for our visitors, we also tasted some savoury picnic foods and talked about their taste, smell, texture and appearance.

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.
