Welcome to Year 3!
Class teachers are Miss Davies in Class 3D, Miss Hardman in Class 3H and Mrs Melarangi and Mrs Newton (English and Maths).
Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Diggines and Mrs Speed.
This is an important year for our children as they move from Key Stage 1 into Key Stage 2, and we do all that we can to make it smooth, calm and rewarding for everyone. We cover lots of exciting topics, from Safe Relationships in PSHE to Rock, Fossils and Soils in Science! Our Year Three team encourage pupils to work hard, try their best and give 110% effort.
Important information for Parents/Guardians:
In Year Three at St. John's, pupils are expected to read aloud to a parent or guardian a minimum of three times a week. In addition to this, pupils are able to work to improve their reading schools by accessing Reading Plus too. Homework is usually set each Friday and is expected to be returned by the following Friday.
Our P.E. day is Wednesday (p.m.) and our Library day is Thursday (p.m.).
This year, we focus predominantly on our three, four and eight times tables. We use a mixture of activities, games and TimesTables Rockstars to help support our learning within school, though we always appreciate your continued support with this practise at home!
One of our favourite topics is 'Myths and Legends' where we discover the Legend of Gelert, follow the adventures of Beowulf and add our own twists to some of the most historic myths and legends. We definitely have some budding young authors in our classes!
Another exciting topic we cover is the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We look at the way of life, the changes between these periods in time and what historical evidence tells us about life thousands of years ago. It's all very busy and exciting in Year Three!
