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.


Important Reminders

* PE - Our PE day has changed to Wednesday, 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.

This half term, we will be learning...




We will be reading the novel 'Stig of the Dump' and creating our own version by innovating parts of the story.  Then we will move on to Poems on a theme and discussion using our oracy skills, 



This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons:

  • Money
  • Statistics



Our topic this half term is 'Rock and Roll'. We will look at this topic in detail through Science, Art and Design Technology. 



As we follow our 'Rock and Roll' topic, we will explore famous rock formations, how rocks are made, fossils and what is under our feet. We will do this by researching the internet, carrying out our own investigations and asking questions and seeking answers through various methods.  



In Art we will be looking at Parietal art, recreating our own versions of this using a variety of media. 



In history, we are comparing the lives of people from ancient Britain to people of today. This will include the Mesolithic period and we will be learning all about Stonehenge. 



We will be investigating earthquakes and volcanoes around the world and why they are here.
