Year 3 Owls
Welcome to the Year 3 Owls!
My name is Miss O'Toole and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 3 Owls this year. Mrs Valley will also be helping us in Year 3. At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.
* PE - Our PE day is Monday, however, it is important that PE kits are in school at all times.
* School Library - The Owls are timetabled to visit the school library every Tuesday lunchtime. Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!
* Homework is given out every Wednesday and should be returned on Monday. All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term. Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.
* Swimming - Swimming will take place every Thursday morning, so please make sure children bring in their swimming kit.
Our value this half term is TOLERANCE. Don't forget to complete your values task at home - it could be included on our next newsletter!
This half term, we will be learning...
We are very excited to be working with Mr Simpson this half term and learning poems and using our oracy skills to perform them. Keep on eye out of the winner of the Pineapple of Bravery!
We will be looking at a range of Fables and innovating our own! Then we will move on to Persuasion (letters) and poems with a structure.
This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons:
Our topic this half term is 'Healthy Humans'. We will look at this topic in detail through Science, Art and Design Technology.
As we follow our 'Healthy Humans' topic, we will explore nutrition, exercise and how our bodies work.
In Art we will look at artists who use healthy food to create pictures and sculptures. These artists include Archimbaldo and Claes Oldenburg.
In Design Technology, we are looking forward to creating our own 'healthy plates' and understanding where food comes from.
