Year 3 - Browne and Jeffers
Welcome to Year 3!
Mrs Van Roy and Miss Miller are delighted to welcome you to Year 3 where learning is challenging, fun and exciting. We are always around to support both you as parents and the children, and if you need anything then don't hesitate to pop in and speak to one of us.
We will help your child on their learning journey this year and will give them lots of opportunities to shine! Our promise is to make super memories for them as well as guide them in becoming life-long learners.
On this page you will find your child's homework, spellings and topic webs for the year group as well as photo updates of their learning in school.

This is our timetable for this week; please use this as guidance.
Please use the following powerpoint to guide you through each day. Open it up as a full powerpoint and click your way through (there are lots of clicks so the children can go through at a steady pace to ensure they fully understand). Please find the main task worksheets below the powerpoint. As well as this powerpoint, please do ensure your child practises their Table Mountain stage ready for their test in 2 weeks! If you have transferred your child's Doodlemaths account over then also use this as revision.

Topic - Design & Technology
Our topic work for the next few weeks will be based on our D&T project "2d shape to 3d product". We will be designing, making and evaluating a Christmas decoration to hang on the tree. We ask the children to complete the first 2 lessons of the booklet, and we will start making the decoration when back together in school.
This term in Science we are learning about Rocks, Soils and Fossils. Follow this PowerPoint to learn about the fossil formation process and create your own Fossil ZigZag booklet which you can find towards the end of the slides. Print page 12 to do this.
Follow Mr Breese's wonderful introduction to short and long notes!
Art - Picasso's Blue Period
We're going to have a go at copying Picasso again! This time we will be focusing on his Blue Period. Don't forget to send us a photo of your finished piece of art.
Thank you to all of our wonderful and supportive Year 3 Parents and Carers. We're all in this together!
