Welcome to Year 3


There are lots of people who will be helping you to grow and learn along your learning journey. Ms Rochester- Bergami (3M) and Ms McKenzie (3S) will be helped by Ms Barnes and Mrs Hussain. We want all the children to try their best and work together to make the learning fun for everyone!

Things to know

PE day: P.E is taught twice a week

3S - Wednesday and Friday 

3M - Tuesday and Wednesday

Our key question is: How did pirates navigate?

Please ensure that your child's P.E kit is labelled with their name, and stays in school to avoid missing out on P.E activities. The children will take their P.E kits home on the last week of term. 

Reading Records: Any time your child has been read with by an adult, there will be a comment in their reading record. Please can you ensure that your child brings in their reading record each day. Children's enthusiasm for reading a range of books, in school and at home is improving, as they are reading more frequently with friends and parents. We would like to encourage you to continue daily reading with your child.  

Our core book that we shall focus on in English is: Pirate Diary: The Journal of Jake Carpenter by Richard Platt. The key words for this book are: pirate, flog, mutiny, helm, ship, treasure, travel, deck and crew.

Anti- Bullying Day


On Wednesday 13th June, we looked at anti- bullying. As we are a Rights Respecting school, we thought about and discussed how we would help someone who was being bullied.

The children came up with a question that they considered to be most important and centered their work around that. 

At the end of the day, the children made mini advice cards, for children to use if they are being bullied or if they know of someone who is being bullied. 

Golden Hinde

For out topic this half term we have been looking at PIRATES!!!! 

To introduce it and get a real taste of pirate life we all went on a trip to see the Golden Hinde ship in Central London.
