Year 3 2016 - 2017

Miss Finch

Welcome to the Year 3 class page! 

Here in Year 3 we are always working really hard to master our times tables and our mental maths. We're always ready for a mental maths question and that's we start everyday with our morning maths worksheet. WE ARE MATHS CHAMPIONS!

A big focus for us in Year 3, this year, is reading! We read in class, we read at play times and we're working really hard to increase the amount of times we can read our books at home too. We record every time we have read our book, at home, at school each week and we can earn points for our reading team to earn extra playtime.

In class we are currently reading The BFG by Roald Dahl. 

We have already finished: 

  •  The Hodgeheg by Dick King- Smith

  •  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

  •  Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr Seuss

  • The Twits by Roald Dahl

  • Matilda by Roald Dahl


Year 3 will need their P.E. kits every Wednesday!

This half term we  have Football with the Manchester United foundation on a Wednesday, where it's possible we may have one or two professional footballers of the future (yes, I am talking about Miss Finch's incredible skills).


Swimming is now complete for Year 3! Well done to every single one of you for the progress you have made. Every child developed so much during our term and a half of swimming. All parents should be very proud!


Thankyou to all parents who came to our first open classroom of the year! The children really enjoyed getting to show off some of their favourite pieces of work and keep a look out for the next of these events coming soon. 


If you have any queries throughout the year please don't hesitate to catch me in the playground before school or after for a chat. And don't forget to check out the blogs and galleries below to keep up to date with all the exciting things we've been up to in Year 3!
