Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 is a chance for the UK to focus on mental health.

This year's theme is kindness, with the week running from 18 - 24 May.

The focus on kindness is a response to the coronavirus outbreak, which is having a big impact on people's mental health.

Being kind to others has a positive impact on our mental health.

If you're worried about mental health, wellbeing, or if you have any questions, speak to an adult that you trust. It might be a teacher or an older relative.

You might wish to speak to your local doctor or you can also ring Childline for free on 0800 11 11. This number does not show up on your phone bill.

Welcome to the Year 3 page


The teachers in Year 3 are:         Miss Goldsmith 3G and Miss Bullock 3B


This term we are having PE on Monday and Friday.

Could you please make sure your child has their PE kit on these days.


Some children are given spellings to learn on Monday for a test on Friday. 

Could you please help your child to learn them.


The children are given Maths homework on a Friday. Could you please help them to complete it.

The children get Dojo points for the homework they bring back to school.


We are encouraging the children to bring water bottles to school so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day.


    Although we are not in school at the moment, nothing will stop             Year 3 from working extremely hard at home!

Ella has written some lovely rainbow poetry for us to enjoy. Thanks Ella!

Ella, Rahin and Zara read 'Blown Away' by Rob Biddulph and then drew a picture of the penguin from the story. Aren't they fabulous!

Look at what Ella has discovered about animal skeletons.

Ella and Zara have shown us who, what and where they feel safe.

Read this fabulous legend written by Ella.

Ella has been busy solving fraction problems too!

Well done to Bobbi (3G) and Zara (3B) for practising their maths basic skills at home! Miss Goldsmith and Miss Bullock are very proud!

The children in Year 3 are very independent. Look at this fantastic work by Rahin Azari (3G).Wonderful research on our Georgraphy topic during home learning. 

'We Are Presenters' is our topic in Computing, this half term.

Well done to Ella (3B) who has watched Part 1 of

'Behind the Scenes of Shaun the Sheep the Movie'

This is what she thinks sheep do, when we aren't looking.

In our science topic we have been looking at the skeletons of animals and humans. Rahin (3G) has completed a fantastic presentation about animal skeletons after doing some independent research.
