3M Class Teacher: Miss McNamee
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Tobin
WELCOME TO YEAR THREE!
Miss McNamee, Miss Yarnold and Mrs Tobin warmly welcome you to year three. We can't wait to get to know you, teach you and watch you learn and grow over the next academic year.
We have lots of exciting things to explore over the next 8 weeks:
English - Fractured stories. The children will be revisiting well known fairy tales such as The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and The Three Bears and then adding a little twist to them to turn them into fractured fairytales.
Maths - We start the year learning all about number and place value followed by addition and subtraction, geometry, multiplication and division, fractions and time. All of these topics will be revisited again in both the Spring and Summer terms.
Science - Rocks is our first unit. You will be able to answer questions such as, 'How are rocks formed?' and 'How are they used in everyday life?'
RE - Creation, belonging and listening to God's word at Mass are the first three units. Through this, we discover the importance of belonging, learn about the seven sacraments and explore the Mass, its parts and why it is so important to listen.
We are very excited to tell you that our Thematic units are changing for this year. Our first 'Golden Thread' is, 'How our actions can change our planet and cause harm,' with year three focusing on humans' impact on plants and animals.
This is a very important and special year for you and your parents as you make two Sacraments. These sacraments will be deeply explored both in class with your teachers and Deacon Sean Loone, at home with your parents and during our after school First Holy Communion sessions.
Just a reminder, that all letters, reminders and general correspondence will be uploaded onto this class please so please check weekly.
