Eldon Primary School

Aspiration, Determination, Success

Year 3

Year 3 teachers are:

Miss Hussein – Lower KS2 Phase Leader
Mr Symister- Ruby class
Miss Kirby – Crystal class
Miss M Begum - Sapphire class
Miss Hoque - Diamond class
Miss Woloshyn - Emerald class
 

The Year 3 team would like to start off by welcoming back all the children and parents after the summer holidays. Year 3 can be a scary year for many of our pupils; making the jump from key stage 1 to key stage 2 can be very frightening. The children have to get used to a new building, new teachers and a new routine but the Year 3 team have said how extremely proud they are of all the children who have proved that they are ready for this change. They have settled in well during the first week and we are looking forward to the rest of the year. All the teachers are here to help and are looking forward to meeting all of the parents and getting to know all of the children better over the next few weeks.

 

We have lots of exciting things planned over the next half term so keep an eye on the school website and check your child’s book bag for any letters about trips and parent meetings. Please make sure you look at our yearly and half termly overview on the website to keep up to date with what your children are learning. 

 

We are all committed to ensuring your children have a safe, full and rounded year of learning and are all very happy to answer any questions or queries you may have.
Please check our website for regular updates.
 
Thank you.
Year 3 Team

 A message from Place2Be

Hi everyone,

As you know, there is currently a virus called Coronavirus which many people around the world are catching. People are talking about it and saying different things, and this can be very confusing for everyone. This is an unusual time for all of us and many families are now adapting their normal routines and staying at home in order to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

People have different feelings about what is going on at the moment. Some people are feeling sad, some are worried, some are angry as lots of things are changing. We all have different feelings! Nobody’s feelings are right or wrong, and it is important that you talk about how you feel.

It is important that while you are at home, take responsibility (do what you can to help around the home); show respect (listen to others in your home); be persistent (especially if you’re finding something tricky), show compassion (be kind to each other and yourself); stay active (try and do a daily exercise) and most of all – have some fun!

And one message for the grown-ups, please remember that you are not alone! Everyone at school are here for you and willing to help. You can contact me on yasmin.gal@place2be.org.uk

I’m missing you all very much and looking forward to seeing you as soon as possible.

Yours,

Yasmin, Place2Be

British Museum Trip

This term, Year 3 visited the British Museum, where they explored artefacts throughout the ages covered in our History unit of work. This stemmed from the stone, bronze and iron age to the Indus Valley to our current topic on Ancient Egypt. Children put their knowledge to great use as they discussed and identified artefacts and their purposes in these Ancient Civilisations.

D&T-Making boxes

Children had the opportunity to design, make and evaluate their product. They looked at how they could improve their own boxes and how. |This included: adding a lock to secure items inside; adding a ribbon/handle to pull lid up to make more sturdy; add tab to lid and cut small horizontal slit on side to ensure box stays closed; to change aesthetics; use material other than card such as wood to stiffen structure or use a different net shapes according to purpose and different sizes of boxes according to use. They looked at how they could improve their own boxes and how. |This included: adding a lock to secure items inside; adding a ribbon/handle to pull lid up to make more sturdy; add tab to lid and cut small horizontal slit on side to ensure box stays closed; to change aesthetics; use material other than card such as wood to stiffen structure or use a different net shapes according to purpose and different sizes of boxes according to use.
