Year 3

We have a very exciting Autumn term planned this year! We will be studying rocks in Science and sculpting our own volcanoes. We will move on to look at the Stone Age in History, and have a go at our very own cave art. In Engish we are working on poetry, studying 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' towards the end of term. In Maths we are working on place value, addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division.

To support our learning, we will have spellings to learn each week and one other piece of homework related to our curriculum which will be taken home on a Friday - please return by the following Friday. We recommend reading 5 times a week at home and making a note of this in your reading records.
If you have any questions, please feel free to catch us on the school gates at the end of each day, or contact the office.

My name is Miss. Collins and I am very pleased to be teaching in Year 3. I love reading books - my favourite at the moment is "The Squirrels Who Squabbled". In 3MC we are passionate about taking care of the environment and learning about our wonderful world. In my spare time, me and my two children enjoy taking our dog for walks and watching Disney films!
