WELCOME TO YEAR 3!
The teachers in Year 3 are
Mr Lawrence, Miss West and Mrs Ayling-Moores
Our wonderful teaching assistants are
Mrs Riley, Mrs Aston, Miss Bensley and Mrs Wayne.
In the Autumn term we will learn all about The Romans and Vesuvius's eruption in 79AD. We will be studying Escape from Pompeii and a number of books from The Roman Mysteries series.
After the first half term break, we hope to perform a Roman play to friends and family showcasing all of the wonderful learning we have done! On the 8th October we have also planned an exciting trip to The Fishbourne Roman Palace where we will be taking part in a number of workshops and learning all about Roman life in Fishbourne 2000 years ago.
In the first half of the Spring term, we will voyage across the seven seas to learn more about the life of a pirate. Through stories, facts and play we will discover what pirates did and how they lived, built their gruesome reputations and died!
We are very excited to have a visit from the History Man who will be visiting us to host our fun-filled pirate day! The children will get a chance to dress up, see some exciting pirate artefacts, play pirate games and even watch a real Musket being fired!
During the Summer Term, we will be exploring the theme of 'facing your fears' through exciting stories. One of our focus texts will be Jaqueline Wilson's Cliffhanger and we are hoping that the weather will be nice enough to allow for a visit to our beautiful Bognor beach.
We will be ending the year with a bang as we delve into the world of Stig of The Dump. To get a hands-on experience of what life might have been like for Stig, we will be spending a fantastic day at Seeley Copse Woods where the children can have a go at fire making, den building and maybe even try some toasted marshmallows!
Throughout the Autumn Term, the children will need their PE kits on a Wednesday and their swimming kits on Fridays.
After our block of swimming lessons, PE will be held every Thursday and alternate Wednesdays.
We hope your child enjoys being in Year 3. If you require any further information or have any questions do not hesitate to contact us at the end of the day or by making an appointment via the main school office.
Aspire, Achieve, Enjoy
