Miss O'Dowd, Mr Nicholls, Miss Morris, Mrs Lemon and Miss Hadley would like to welcome you to our Year 3 year group page. We hope you find this a useful place to visit to gain any important information; find educational links and to have a peek at the wonderful things that are happening in Year 3!
In year 3 we are joining the rest of the school in undertaking a special STEM project focussed on engineering. Every Friday afternoon we will be working on our selected projects. The children have chosen their project to try and help solve a problem that we currently face in the world today. The projects include; building bridges, designing boats, constructing an ocean grabber, making a wind turbine and making a periscope. They will be working in groups of between 2 and 5 and developing their collaborative skills. Each week an expert from our STEM launch will assist us in the design and make process. On the 18th October, all the year 3 entries will be judged and a winner will be selected.
Spellings are important in Year 3! Below we have attached the Year 1/2 Common Exception Words as well as the 3/4 Common Exception Words that can be practised throughout the Year! The Year 3/4 Common Exception Words are words that the children should be able to spell by the end of Year 4.
We have also attached the spellings for Group 1 and Group 2 that we will be testing the children on every Friday!
Top Tip: When we test these spellings in school we put these words into sentences which you may want to try at home!
