Welcome to 3M with Mr Morris!

Spelling sheets will be given out on Friday  to be returned the following Friday when there will be a short test. Spellings for this week are below.

Hello everyone, and welcome to a new school year! A few things in school will be a bit different this year, but we will be doing everything we can to ensure that our children are safe, happy and make fantastic progress in their learning. Please make sure that you read all the messages on the app and on the Holy Trinity home page - click here.

Some things you need to know about our class:

  • For the Year 3 bubble, school starts at 8.55am and children will be welcomed directly into the Year 3 classrooms one-by-one by a member of staff. Please queue in the playground where indicated, socially-distanced from other parents and children. Please be on time and patient as there may be a short delay as we try to be as safe as possible.
  • School finishes for us at 3.15pm. Please pick up your child from the classroom door, waiting socially-distanced as indicated on the playground.
  • Remember the one-way system - enter the school premises via the front path and leave through the car park.
  • PE is on Wednesdays (starting 9th September). So on Wednesdays children will need to come to school in their PE kit, sweatshirt and school shoes. Remember to bring pumps in a bag to change into. Leggings and tracksuit bottoms can be worn instead of shorts.
  • Homework (maths and spellings) will be sent home on Friday to be returned by the following Friday.
  • Spelling tests will be on Fridays.
  • Children are expected to read at home every day if possible, and reading books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. 

I'm really looking forward to us all getting to know each other, and having an exciting time learning together!

I'll be on the door most mornings and afternoons or you can get in touch via the school office if you have any questions and concerns.


Mr Morris

What will we be learning?

In Maths this term we will be doing some extra catch-up lessons on arithmetic, and learning how to do calculations involving money.

In Literacy we'll be starting with some work on using commas, and writing complex sentences with main and subordinate clauses, using fables, non-chronological reports and fairy tales. We'll also be doing some catch-up writing, reading and phonics lessons.

We'll be finding out all about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age in History, exploring new techniques for drawing and painting in Art, learning to use a compass and grid references in Geography, finding out more about Christianity in RE and having some fun with instruments in Music. Wow, what a lot of exciting things to learn!

In Computing we will become pollsters and programmers, and learn how to use Google CLassroom. In Science we'll be learning all about health and nutrition, forces, and movement in animals. 

Most exciting of all, we'll be starting to learn Spanish! We will find out how to say numbers from 1-10 and how to greet other people.

In PHSE we'll start off finding out about the effects and risks of smoking tobacco, and in PE we'll be learning different strategies and techniques for using in team games.
