Year 3 CM
Welcome to Class 3CM!
These are the key instant recall facts for the Year 3 mathematics curriculum.
We have come to the end of our science topic ‘Rocks, soils and fossils’. The children have learned so much over the last term and showed great enthusiasm for the subject. We finished off the topic by making some fossils of our own… luckily they didn’t take quite as long as real ones!
We have been learning about Mary Anning in our science lesson today. The children learned about her life and the importance of her work. Watch this video with your child to find out more!
Maths is fun!
We enjoyed challenging our friends in a game of ‘What am I?’ In our maths lessons this week when we were learning about the properties of 2D shapes.
We had a lot of fun this week recreating Stonehenge! We know lots of interesting facts about Stonehenge, please ask us about it at home. 😊
Our current focus in our English lessons is ‘Hocus Pocus’. During this topic the children will be listening to, performing and exploring the vocabulary of lots of poetry and spells. The children have enjoyed learning ‘The Witch's Brew’ this week and we even had some witches visit our class to answer our questions on Thursday! The children had a lot of fun and we look forward to learning lots more spells! 😺🧙🕷

Pedestrian training awards… Well done 3CM!
Pedestrian training in Year 3
I think these children deserve a huge round of applause… 100% attendance for this term so far! There have been a lot of bugs and colds this half term so this truly is amazing. Attending school each day is so important to your child’s education and we encourage them to be in school as much as possible. I think with a little extra push we could even win the attendance trophy next term… let’s give it a go!
Happy Halloween Everyone! 🎃🎃🎃
Year 3 enjoying physical activity with our coaches from South Shields FC. The children are working on developing their game skills, rules and making games fair.
The children in Year 3 take part in a 6 week pedestrian training course. The children go out to the streets around the school and practice various road safety skills. This week the children were learning how to safely cross between two parked cars when there is no other option.
We enjoyed a day of art and relaxation in school to raise awareness of good mental health and strategies for young people to develop this. The children took time to listen to music, paint, draw, take part in a yoga session, chat with their friends, practice deep breathing and learn all about the three parts of the brain and what each part does. E also completed our daily mile, stressing the importance of physical well-being and getting outdoors to support good mental health.
As part of World Mental Health Day, we explored how colours made you feel and what you associate certain colours with. We started with this story and had a good discussion around the colour black and some negative feelings about it. We then read the story and chatted about all of the wonderful things the colour black represents.
The children enjoy taking part in the daily mile every afternoon in Year 3. We encourage the children to challenge themselves and try to do just a little bit more each day. The children love to share their achievements and it gives them some much needed fresh air and exercise each and every day... even in the rain!
During our first week in school we explored the story 'I'm Not Invited?' We looked at the emotions and feelings surrounding what it feels like when you are left out of something. The children then created some fantastic self portraits showing themselves feeling a range of emotions.
Stone Age Boy
This term, our quality text in English is Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. We are working through the book a small section at a time so that the children become familiar with the story and enjoy exploring different aspects that the story has to offer. When we have finished reading the story I will share a link to the book below with you but as we are working towards the end, we would like all the children to experience the same parts together.
