Year 3 2021 - 2022

Miss McKenna

Welcome back.

It has been nice to see everyone refreshed after half term.

Summer term 2...
Our PE days are will be the same this half term. We will be doing PE on Thursdays and Fridays. 

I have added our parent leaflet for Summer 2 so you can see what your child will be learning about whilst we explore our new Big Question..

Why are plants important?

Thank you for your support with reading at home the children are buzzing about all the different books they are reading!

Miss McKenna, Miss Gabbot and Mrs Watkinson

We are encouraging the children to read, please support your child to read at least 4 times a week with you. We have the Oxford Reading Buddy which your child can use to read and have a go at the quizzes too!
I have attached a file (Year 3 and 4 book list) with 100 books to read in Years 3 and 4. Enjoy there are some great books in it!


Wednesday 13th October, we went on our fieldtrip around Penwortham. We looked at the different styles of houses and buildings, we looked at all the road names, we looked at the war memorial and we found the site where the Motte and Bailey castle would have stood. The children had the chance to go inside St. Mary's church and stand inside the oldest recorded building in Penwortham.  Reverend Chris very kindly shared his knowledge of our local area and he knows so much about our local history that he even taught the staff a few new things!
