YEAR 3 CLASS OF 2021-2022

Welcome to the Year 3 class page!

Our teacher is Ms Devaney, Mrs Derrick is our Teaching Assistant and Miss Saunderson is our amazing volunteer!

We are really excited about the year ahead and can't wait to share our learning journey with you all!

We have had a great start to the year already and we know that this year is going to be full of wonderful memories and exciting learning!

Museum Trip 

We recently had a wonderful day out to Liverpool where we visited the World Museum and had a fantastic learning session - Meet The Mummy. The children learnt all about the Egyptian process of mummification. We had 2 slashers who had to help remove the brain, and all the internal organs from a dummy and then we all wrapped the body in linen cloths. It was a wonderful learning experience for the children and they are now in the process of writing instructions entitled, How to Mummify Your Dear Friend!

We then spent the afternoon in  the stunning Walker Art Gallery, learning some new sketching techniques and studying some of the beautiful paintings and sculptures.

Please enjoy the slideshow of photographs from our wonderful day and we look forward to sharing some of the children's writing with you soon!

Reading Plus 
It is lovely to see that many of the children are using our wonderful Reading Plus programme at home.
We know this programme supports the reading skills and comprehension so it is an invaluable resource.

We are proud to be a PATHS school. PATHS is our SEL curriculum.
The concepts of PATHS is interweaved into everything we do in school.
We teach the children to be resilient and able to solve problems and regulate their own behaviour and responses.

and treat them the way they would like to be treated.
