Year Three

Welcome to year 3. We have two year 3 classes, one called Cowell and the other called Rosen.

Mr Clover is the teacher in Cowell and Miss Waites is the teacher in Rosen. Miss Minnithorpe is the Year 3 Teaching Assistant.

Now we can read fluency we need to really make sure we understand what we are reading. You might have a reading book from school but you will also get change to borrow one from our school library. To help us do this we read at home each day and ask an appropriate adult to sign our reading journal to confirm we have done this.

Our PE lessons are on Thursday.  You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.

We are really excited to share our Autumn Term plans.

Autumn Term Plans

Were the Vikings victorious?

This half term we will travel back in time and consider our key question ‘Were the Vikings victorious?’ We will be looking into the Vicious Vikings, exploring how they came to Britain, the way they lived and the importance of Gods in Viking life. We will investigate the powers the Gods held, and why religion was so important to them. We will be comparing the differences in Viking lifestyle to that of our own and why and how things have changed over time.

In year 3, we will use our debating and discussion skills to consider how trading worked and if the Vikings made the right decision going into the battle of Hastings. We will use our research and evaluation skills and we will draw information from pictures and videos to create our own opinions.
