Expect the Best


Chaffinch Class

Welcome back to all our pupils.  It is lovely to see everybody again after an enforced lock down.  Things are still a little bit different at the moment but we're pleased to share with you all the exciting learning we have planned now we're back in school.


Our topic is 'extreme earth' and we will be looking closely at how our Earth is formed and continually changing.  In Geography we will be focusing on volcanoes and the layers of the earth.  In science we will look at rocks, soils and fossils.  In art we're going to be looking at textures that can be created by taking rubbings and using sketching pencils. In DT we are using mouldable materials.  We have already made coil pots and we are now going to make some ammonite fossils and create large volcanoes using mod-roc. In English we are writing to persuade.  In maths we're building on the hard work we have been putting into our written calculations with 2 step word problems for division and multiplication. In PE we are going to continue to develop our skills in gymnastics creating sequences and paths using jumping and rolling.  In French, we are looking at animals and colour.  Finally, in RE we have a big focus on the Easter story and the feelings of the people involved.


Remote Learning:

If pupils need to isolate for whatever reason, remote learning will still be available via Google Classrooms.  Please check the Google Classroom page on any week days your child is at home isolating.

Getting in contact:


You will be able to contact us via Google Classrooms.  Whenever you turn in a piece of work you can add comments and we'll respond accordingly.  We'll also be monitoring the Year 3 email so you can contact us on there too:


Of course you can still contact school in the usual ways via the office phone or email if you need to get in touch more urgently.

To welcome your children back we've enjoyed creating volcanoes before taking them outside to erupt them...
