Welcome to our class blog for Miss McCormick’s year 3 class. On here you can find out lots of information about what 3M are doing this year and all about our learning.
Here is a copy of our Newsletter Year 3 Autumn 2017 with some important dates and information.
Year 3 will have spelling homework each week given on a Monday and collected on Friday. Please encourage your children to complete homework using joined handwriting. Children should aim to read nightly.
Here you can find some spelling games for the Year 3 spelling words to help practise at home.
In year 3 the focus is on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Any extra practice the children can do on these will help the children to become more fluent in their mathematics. The children will be given a list of times tables questions to practice each week, the aim is to move up the rainbow when each colour has been mastered. Here is a copy of the times tables colours.

And some some fun games to help.
Over this half term we will be focusing on the continent of Africa and the countries within it for our topic work. Any information you can share with your children will be of great benefit to their learning. Our African Launch day will be Friday 22nd September. Please come to school dressed according to our African theme, some ideas might be to dress as an African animal (facepaint) or wear some brightly coloured clothing.
P.E will take place on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit in their bag as the children will be changing in school. If there are any questions regarding the P.E. kit please do not hesitate to ask.
What a brilliant day at the World Museum. We explored the history and everyday life of Ancient Egypt. We learnt about the importance of the River Nile, the process of mummification and even seen some real mummies and their sarcophagus’. After lunch, we were archaeologists, putting on our white gloves to ensure that we didn’t damage the artefacts. We used our knowledge of Ancient Egypt to solve problems and discovered what the artefacts revealed about the lives of the Ancient Egyptians.
What a fantastic end to our Africa topic, the children made an excellent effort with all their African climate projects, showcasing their Geography skills and artistic creativity. I was so impressed with everyone who contributed. Congratulations and well done.
