Welcome to Year 3
Our Year 3 team is Mrs Rodgers, Mrs Allen, Miss Thomas and Mrs Metherell.
Our Year 3 children are amazing and we aim to make this year fun, enjoyable and full of memories.
Please see our curriculum plan in the document below to see what we will be learning this term.
Year 3 reading challenge
At Northfield we understand what a vital skill reading is. All Y3 children are invited to take part in the Year 3 reading challenge to promote reading at home. To receive a bronze award children need to complete 6 of the activities from the list below. They must complete 12 to receive a silver award, 18 to receive their gold award and 30 to receive a platinum award. Each activity must be completed using a different text.
Don't forget to use the list of free audio and e books on this page to help you to complete the challenge.
Creative homework for the Summer term
Next half term our topic will be volcanoes and mountains. For their creative homework, Year 3 must create something on this topic. This could be a model made out of recycled materials or Lego, a fact file, a piece of art work or anything else you choose to create. Whilst school is closed, feel free to post any of your creations on Seesaw for us to take a look at and so we can share some examples on the Year 3 web page. The deadline for this work will be confirmed at a later date.
Learning outside the classroom is an important part of the Y3 curriculum. So far this year we have visited Belton House and the children had a fantastic day learning about the Brownlow family and their Christmas traditions.
On Monday 9th March, the children will be visiting Cadbury World as part of both out 'Food, Glourious Food' and our Rainforests topic. We will be learning how chocolate is made, the history of chocolate and about the rainforests cocoa beans grow in. The children will also be taking part in a rainforests workshop. The cost of the visit is £15.
In the summer term, we will be visiting Brackenhurst for a Stone Age Experience day. The children will be learning about life during the Stone Age in a workshop run by an expert. The cost of this visit will be between £10 and £15. 3SR will going on Wednesday 10th June and 3LW will be going on Thursday 11th June.
Our children have loved anti-bullying week as we have done so many different activities. Our English lessons were about the book, Willy the Wimp and we made our own character ready for our story writing next week.
We learnt a poem called Power for Good and worked in teams to perform it. We also made a friendship wreath full of traits that we look for in a friend. Our anti-bullying poster looked at what bullying is and how we can change bullying to make our school a better place.
