Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 3 and Team Amber

Your teachers are Miss Smith & Mrs Bollen

Your teaching assistant is Mrs Stretton.


This week in English we have been writing our upside-down version of Little Red Riding Hood and The Big Bad Wolf swopping the character's roles. This week in Maths we have been looking at fractions of shapes and solving a range of fraction word problems. We have also identified equivalent fractions using a fraction wall to support us.


After Easter, we will be reading 'The Paper Bag Princess' to support us further develop our fluency and expression while reading. We will also be learning how to use co-ordinating conjunctions to join two main clauses in our writing. In Maths, we will be learning how to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. We will also be working on our target times tables and playing games to help us recall our facts quickly. 


Our topic after Easter will be 'Our World.' As Geographers we will be learning how to use maps to locate special and significant places in our local area. In Science, we will be looking at rocks and soils and will investigate the permeability of different rocks and also get to make our very own fossils!  


We hope that you have a lovely Easter break with your families and look forward to seeing you soon. Well done for working so hard everyone!




Congratulations to this week's stars and Top Ten Rockers!
