Welcome to our wonderful Year 3 class


Well done Year 3s you have completed another half term! You have successfully trained as Roman Soldiers and completed tasks under the watchful eye of Titus. He was so impressed he rewarded you with a feast! You can see some pictures below!


Sense of Place

During the first two weeks back in school, the whole school will be focusing on the 'Sense of Place' with the children. We will find out lots of things about Chellaston of the past and the present, allowing children to gain a clear understanding of their 'Sense of Place' within, the world, England and Derby. These weeks will allow children to immerse themselves in geographical and historical facts and information. We will also go on a local walk to the canal lock.


Fantastic Forces

In our 'Fantastic Forces' topic you will use the Marvel characters to help you explore a range of different forces in our science based topic. There will be lots of opportunity to complete scientific investigations. We will try to understand forces thinking about the super human super powers of all of the characters!

In Literacy we will continue with some more poetry, with rhyming poems and raps! We will also spend time writing newspaper reports, linked to the story 'The Iron Man' and Marvel characters.


Year 3 numeracy will cover Time and Statistics


In art we will complete pieces of art work based on the Iron Man.


We will continue to learn the ukulele on a Thursday afternoon.


We are all very excited!

Please look at the website as we will put photos on the gallery page to share our learning experiences with you all.


Thank you.
