Year 3 News


Hello and welcome to Year 3.


Hello and welcome to Year 3.

Each class is named after a Welsh bird or animal. Our class name is Dosbarth Robin Goch, this means ‘Robin Class’ in Welsh.


Below we have included some information about our class and how we work.


The people who work in our class are:

Mrs Jackson

Miss Jones (PM)

Mrs Martin – Wednesday PM

Mrs Wooding – Monday PM


Our week in school and things to remember:


Monday-  Return reading and spelling books.  Forest School PM

Thursday – PE  kits need to be in school at all times and will be sent home at the end of each term.

Friday- Reading books and new spellings will be sent home today.


What are we learning about this term?

This year in Key Stage 2 we are all learning about the UN Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals). These goals help countries to work together to create a better world for us all to live in by the year 2030. The goal that we will learn about this term is ‘Reduced Inequalities’. We will be thinking about how we treat the people around us who are different and about the steps that can be taken to make everyone equal, regardless of the country or place that they come from.


Our topic for this term will be ‘The Moon Landing’. This will link to a lot of our lessons, especially our work in literacy, art and history. This will also be an ideal time to develop our research skills using the school’s ICT facilities. We hope to incorporate a school trip linked to the topic in this term and if we arrange anything then we will be sending letters home with all the details. In our science lessons we are going to be focusing on Earth. This will include rocks, fossils, volcanoes, living organisms and hopefully some very successful investigations and experiments!


Mrs Martin will be teaching Music, RE and PSE on Wednesday afternoons.


Learning at home

Reading- In our class we change reading books depending on the group they are in. Children are encouraged to bring back their completed books on Monday morning ready to change it for a new book, we understand that as some children will be reading longer books now and may not change their reading books every week. Please write in your child’s  reading log to record when you have read with them at home, although we don’t always have chance to write a note back, we do check these books each week.

New spelling lists will also be sent home on a Friday. We practise these daily in school too.
