Welcome to 3C Class Page
We have all settled into Year 3 very well and we are really excited and enthusiastic about the year ahead!
We have started our “Time Travellers” topic by looking at the Victorian period. We have been learning about how life in the Victorian times was very different to our life today. We certainly feel lucky about how much has changed, as life back then must have been really tough!
We have also been learning about the life and reign of Queen Victoria. Through our research, we have discovered that she was a very interesting woman so we have all written a biography about her.
Each week we are aiming to be ‘Star Readers’ by reading at home every day! We need to remember to get our reading records signed by an adult. If we do manage to read every day, we will receive a special certificate at the end of the week.
We are all feeling very positive about the year ahead!
We look forward to working with you

At our school we want to develop and promote ‘a love of reading’.
When sharing a book talk to your child about what he or she thinks might happen next in a story, how the story might end and then ask them to retell the story themselves. Picture books are very important to promote discussion, so look for books without any words to help your child practise this skill. Have fun acting out stories together. Your enthusiasm for a book will help your child to understand that books are exciting. Your child will receive a bookmark with their book and this should target the objectives that your child is working on.
Make reading times fun and relaxed and you will see your child’s confidence grow!
Help your child to practise their spellings. See if they can write them in their cursive handwriting.
Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space, in their daily lives.
