Welcome to Year 3
What an amazing first few weeks. We are totally impressed with how hard your children have worked as we have read Fantastic Mr Fox, painted our portraits and introduced them to the new routines of Year 3. It was great to speak with many parents at the Meet the Teacher evening. The downloads we mentioned are at the bottom of the page.
Mrs Duncan, Mrs Coulton and Mr Gibson
During the first week, we read Fantastic Mr Fox. Why not try and follow the video and draw your own picture of Fantastic Mr Fox ready to bring in to school...
During the second week, we painted our self portraits - they'll be on display in the main hall soon.
During the third week, we began to look at Ancient Egypt, developing our historical questioning skills and learning about some amazing artefacts.
