Year 3 - Elder & Juniper Classes

Term 1

Gosh!  What a busy start to the year we have had in Year 3.  The children have been brilliant and we have been so proud of the way that they have coped with the transition to Year 3.

There have been so many brilliant things that they have done in their learning already this year including some super writing based on The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl and amazing column addition in maths. 

At the beginning of term we enjoyed a fantastic day out at Fairlight Hall for their Field to Fork day.  There were so many interesting things to do and see and the weather was very kind to us (which we were very grateful for as we were outside all day).

We were really lucky to have a visit from Miss Vanner from Helenswood School towards the end of term.  She came to share with and teach us an Indian dance in readiness for Hastings Storytelling Festival which has India Reimagined as its theme this year.  The children really impressed and surprised us with their rhythm, moves and creativity and we are looking forward to continuing this in our PE lessons after half-term.

Welcome to Year 3! 

We have a busy and very exciting year ahead of us, which starts with our first topic of ‘Animal Antics’ this term.  Please have a look at our termly leaflet for more information….and watch this space for updates of all the fantastic learning we have been doing, including photos from our visit to Fairlight Hall in week 4.

Our Autumn Home Learning challenge is also available.  Please help your child to develop one idea of what they could work on to bring to our showcase just before Christmas.
