November update!

Hello and welcome back after the October break! Just a reminder that 3C will be starting swimming lessons on Wednesday mornings until February half term. There is a letter with all of the dates on the letters section of the Y3 page. While 3C are swimming, 3AB will have a PE lesson on a Friday with Mrs Ainley. Games with Mr Ward will continue to take place on a Tuesday or Thursday.


We have lots for the children to look forward to this half term. We start the half term with our Buried Treasure theme about rocks and soils. If anyone has any rock collections at home, we are always pleased to show and tell them in school. In December, we will be starting our Santa is coming to Nottingham topic and will be learning a range of geographical skills. In December we also have our trips to the Pantomime (9.12.19) and National Ice Centre (18.12.19) to look forward to.


Please note that this half term's homework was handed out on Friday 8.11.19. If you require a new copy, please speak to your child's teacher.

October update!


We can't believe our first half term is nearly completed! The children have really impressed us with their curiosity in to life during the Stone Age. We are moving on the the legacy they left and how they impacted on our lives today, before moving on to look at the Bronze and Iron Age.


We have all loved looking the brilliant picture book 'Voices in the Park' by Anthony Browne in our English work. We have been amazed by the children's responses to the character's actions, thoughts and feelings. They even gave us some ideas on what they wanted their next task to be about! 


We've enjoyed looking at the cave homeworks that have been making their way in to the classroom... keep them coming!


We look forward to seeing you all at the parent consultations on 16th/17th October.


The Year 3 Team

Welcome to Year 3!

We are so pleased with how the children have settled into school life at Arno Vale; we're seeing lots of smiles and they should all be proud of themselves. We have started our Stone Age theme and the children seem to be really enjoying learning about how life was different in contrast to today. In maths, we are focusing on place value and what the digits in a number represent. Our English work is based on a short film narrative linked to The Flintstones. We are sure that they will rock! 


Curriculum Meeting: Monday 16th September 2019

The Year 3 teachers will be holding a brief curriculum meeting in Miss Carter's classroom at 3:45pm on Monday 16th September. At the meeting we will provide parents and carers with an overview of the Year 3 curriculum and provide you with other important information, such as homework expectations, trips etc...


It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible, however if you are unable to attend, we will provide you with a paper copy of the information. 


We look forward to meeting you soon,

Mrs Ainley, Mrs Baker and Miss Carter
