Welcome to Year 3
Miss Kinsey is our Class Teacher and the children are supported by Miss Clegg. We work very hard and always try our best. If we have completed any special work in class we will share it with you on our Year 3 Blog. Please click the link below to see our Blog.
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.

This term our topic challenge is called Mexico. This is a geography based topic where we will be learning about what life is like in Mexico as well as identifying and comparing the physical and human features of Mexico with life in Kearsley. We will also explore Mexican culture and cuisine. After October half term we will learn about the Maya Civilisation as part of our history learning. We will learn about the way of life, customs and traditions and the myths and legends which the Maya are famous for. To link with Kinich Ahau, the sun god, we will be developing our scientific knowledge and understanding about light
We are reading The BFG by Roald Dahl which is about a Big Friendly Giant who spirits an orphan, Sophie, out of bed and takes her to the land of the child-eating giants. We are enjoying this book immensely and read it as often as we can.
