Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!
 
Our teacher is Miss Wigham.
Our teaching assistant is Mrs. Cummings.
 
We have a new and exciting topic-based curriculum planned for this year. Keep checking back to find out what we have been doing in - and out - of our classroom.
 
Our Autumn term topic is 'Digging Up The Past' in which we will be finding out what life was like in the Stone Age. Our English texts are 'Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age', 'Jemmy Button' and 'The Pebble in my Pocket'. Our Science topic is 'Rocks and Soils'.
Real Adventure Through Sport
 
This year, we continue to have Real Adventure Through Sport working with each class in school. Year 3 will be going Outward Bound on a Thursday for the whole of the Autumn term. The class will be split into 3 groups and each week one group will go out of school and participate in adventurous sports. For the first two sessions, we will be looking at 'rock' sports (so strengthening our 'Digging Up The Past' / 'Rocks and Soils' topic even further). In the first session, we will go to a climbing wall at the Real Adventure Through Sport's base in Stanley. In the second session, we will further develop our climbing skills by going rock climbing at Causey Arch. Check back later to find out what we do in Sessions 3 and 4, and to see our photos from all of our outdoor and adventurous activities!!
Our P.E. day is Tuesday. 
 
This year, Year 3 are lucky enough to have music tuition. We will be taught to play the ukulele and this will also take place on a Tuesday.
