Welcome to Owl Class!
We are a Year 3 class. In our class we have two adults; our teacher is Miss Nash. Mrs Pullen is our fantastic teaching assistant. We are a friendly, hard working class who love working and learning together!
Owls have been participating in The Kingfisher Award Scheme (KAS) in the summer term. This provides children with the opportunity to go onto farms to explore the natural world.
We have been creating project work to display in an upcoming competition.... more coming soon!
This term we are learning about light and dark, including shadows in science. We will make
shadow puppets in DT, explore levers and linkages and learn more about growing and nutrition. We will be developing knowledge of the world and different climates in geography.
Maths learning will include multiplication and division strategies, measure and time.
In English, we will be looking at different texts including 'The Dark' by Lemony Snicket, 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright, 'Voices in the park' by Anthony Browne and 'The day the crayons quit' by Drew Daywalt'
A busy, but exciting term for us!

Maths Problem Solving
We have been working very hard on our maths problem solving skills and increasing our mathematical vocabulary. We worked with our learning partners, individually and as a whole class to use our knowledge of place value to solve problems. Please have a look at our beautiful work in the main corridor on the whole- school maths display.
Please send your child in to school with clothing and shoes that you don't mind them getting dirty.
We are going to be Paleontologists and dig for fossils, we will also be creating our own fossils and making dinosaurs.
This week we had the opportunity to work with some amazing artists to create a butterfly display.
Please come have a look at our work in the entrance hall.
Welcome to term 3! This term looks like it is going to be an interesting one.
Already this term, the class have been to 'Forest School' where they had great fun toasting marshmallows and building dens.
We have been practising our spellings; each week the children will be taught a new rule and then have a chance to practise it in class and apply the new spellings into their writing.
Our topic for this term is 'dinosaurs' and we have been researching using the laptops and tablets to find out all about them. We will be using this information to create our own 'non-chronological reports in English.
As part of 'Science', this term we will be making our own fossils as we are learning about 'rocks' and we will become 'Paleontologists' to dig for dinosaur bones.
The children are learning about 'time' and are using analogue and digital clocks. Please support your child at home with telling the time.
Owls! Monday the 29th October is our class INSPIRE morning! All children need an adult with them (Dad, Mum, carer, Grandparent, Uncle etc.) and we will be spending the morning learning all about our new topic - the rain forest! Come prepared for some crafty and cooking style activities! This will run from the start of school day to 11.30 aprox.
Please note, 1 child per adult and unfortunately we cannot accommodate siblings.

Welcome back everyone!
What a busy start to the year we have had. I have been so impressed with the children's effort in class so far this year and their dedication to their home learning- well done.
Just a quick reminder to parents and carers that every Friday children need to bring in their warm outside clothes for Forest School and always need their P.E kits on Wednesdays unless otherwise told.
