In these exceptional circumstances, we have prepared a pack of resources to support your child’s learning at home. These include a range of resources that will help your child keep up to date with core subjects.
Daily home-learning resources are shared by the class teacher via Classdojo. This is a really strong way of keeping our learning up to date and staying connected with our class. If you have any difficulties accessing Classdojo, please contact the school office for further support.
Our class teacher is Mr. Burns and Mr. Graham works with us for PE. Miss Bainbridge also works with our class to help us with our work.
In Year 3, we have all agreed that we would like to work within a calm, friendly and encouraging learning environment, so we have promised to work hard to ensure that this happens. Everyone has their strengths and everyone has weaknesses, but we will all be there for one another to ensure that we are in the best position to succeed.
We have worked a great deal at improving our growth mindset and working with resilience. Getting something wrong is not an issue and we should have no fear of failure, as every mistake is another learning opportunity. We must persevere until we get the right answer… after all, even Albert Einstein said that he wasn’t the most intelligent person, he just stayed at a problem longer than everyone else!
We have studied The Stone Age to the Bronze Age, a time period that covers an enormous 2 million years of Earth’s history. We explore how they lived in Stone Age times, as well as learning about some fantastic historical places like Stonehenge and Skara Brae. We look at the impact of the Iron Age and Bronze Age on the lives of the people who lived during that time.
Year 3 are very lucky to have swimming lessons at Bullion Lane Primary School this year. Lessons run for the duration of the school year. Children swim for blocks of six weeks with a smaller group attending the sessions. This allows for longer in the water with more focussed support for each child.
Every child will take part. They bring kit to include: swimsuit, towel and swimming hat. You can buy a hat at the pool for £1.50.
Year 3 has PE on a Monday afternoon with Mr. Graham and takes part in activities based around the skills necessary in basketball, rugby, cricket, athletics dance and gymnastics. We take part in competitive tournaments throughout the year. We are also taught to understand how to warm up properly, listen carefully and keep ourselves and each other safe from injury.
Responsibilities and Rewards
Each class member has a responsibility, either as a class representative or to carry out tasks that help our lessons and activities to run smoothly.
Impressing our teacher can earn you “Star of the Day” or “Star of the Week” award. Sometimes it is for working our hardest but also it might be because you have shown improvement in your courage, independence, sense of humour or enthusiasm too.
Thank you for visiting!
