Hello and Welcome to the Class 3 Webpage!
We are a fantastic, fun and friendly bunch of Year 3 and Year 4 children, who love learning and work extremely hard to be the very best that we can be! Our class teacher is Miss Meakin and the two teaching assistants who work with us are Mrs Groves and Mrs Truby.
On this webpage, you will be able to find out about all of the exciting things that we have been getting up to as well as being able to access useful information and our weekly spelling lists.
Spring Term 1: The Rampaging Romans!
During the first half of the Spring Term, the children in Class 3 will be studying ‘The Rampaging Romans’! This exciting, history-based topic will enable the children to gain a greater understanding of what the Romans did when they created their empire in Britain. Below, you will find links to our Curriculum Overview for this half term and also to our Spring Term 1 General Timetable. The Curriculum Overview summarises what the children will be learning in each subject during this half term, whilst the General Timetable indicates what lessons children will have on each day during a typical working week.
Weekly Spelling Lists
Here, you will find copies of spellings that children need to learn for weekly tests. Remember that if children have successfully spelt 70, 80, 90 or 100 spellings correctly, by the time we break up for Easter, they will be receive an invitation to a special Easter Tea Party!
Over the last two weeks, we have been studying The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. As a creative homework challenge, Miss Meakin asked us to have a go at making our very own miniature wardrobes. Lots of us really enjoyed this challenge and Miss Meakin was so impressed with our outstanding work!
Creativity at Creswell Crags!
On Tuesday 23rd October 2018, we went on a very exciting and dramatic trip to Creswell Crags in Worksop to celebrate the end of our ‘Savage Stone Age’ topic! We took part in several inspirational activities throughout the day, which allowed us to develop our teamwork skills, our confidence and our creativity! First, we had the opportunity to explore Mother Grundy’s Cave! Mother Grundy lived in the Stone Age, and while we were in her home, she taught us how to play a range of Stone Age instruments and told us a magical story about a reindeer hunt that she had been on! After this, we took part in a ‘Survival Skills’ workshop, where our shelter-building, hunting and fire-making skills were put to the test; we felt like we were in training for Bear Gryll’s Survival Academy! After lunch, we thought about how Stone Age people made art from natural resources. We also created our very own sketches and paintings, using feathers, shells, dye, flint and charcoal. What a great way to end our first half-term of the academic year! Check out our photos below and you will see just how much fun we had!
Time Travelling at St Helen's Church
On Thursday 25th October 2018, we enjoyed participating in a Time Travelling workshop at our local church, St Helen's. We found out all about The Memorial Chapel, we gained an understanding of the symbols contained within the spectacular stained glass windows, we found out how baptism works and we wrote our own prayers to hang on a special prayer tree. What an interesting and thought-provoking morning!
On 9th October 2018, we looked at Stonehenge, a famous prehistoric monument, which was built and rebuilt by generations of ancient people over 4000 years ago. After thinking about how it was built, what Stone Age people might have done there and how it connects with the sun, we worked in teams to build our own models of Stonehenge out of clay! Our teamwork was excellent and Miss Meakin was very proud of how realistic our models looked!
