Leopards Y3

Welcome to Leopards!

Year 3


Miss McBride is the class teacher and Mrs Cheetham is our fabulous teaching assistant.



We are all looking forward to a really exciting Spring Term.


During this term, we will attempt to answer the question

'Were there woolly mammoths in Mansfield?'





Our English work in the first half term will be based around two texts linked to our topic of Stone Age to Iron Age. They are ‘Stone Age Boy’ and ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’ where we will be looking at writing narratives, recounts and instructions. We will continue to have a strong focus on handwriting, spelling, grammar and punctuation throughout the term.





  Our class book will be The Ice Monster by David Walliams




We are starting the term with multiplication and division. We will also learn about measures and statistics in the second half term. As usual, times tables are super important so we will be spending lots of time working on them and using Times Table Rockstars.





Our two science topics this term are Amazing Bodies and Can You See Me?

We will be learning all about the body, muscles and skeletons in the first half term. In the second half term we will be learning about light, shadows and reflection.







Our history based topic is all about Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be learning all about life in this period and changes that happened. To enhance our learning we are going on a trip to Creswell Crags!




In computing, we will be looking at Esafety, graphing and spreadsheets.




During circle time every week, we will get together across Lower Key Stage 2 to discuss events in the news as well as other things that directly impact us.



Our art and DT work includes creating our own cave paintings and Stone Age jewellery.


Leopards will continue swimming for the first half term on Fridays.

In the second half term, PE will be on Thursdays. We will be working on our sports skills.






Our Religious Education work will see us looking at Spiritual Expression.




Remember to read at home as much as you can, and get your diary signed. Each time you get your diary signed you will earn star stamps! Everyone who reads at least 4 times a week will get a prize!You can read any book, not just your school reading book!



Every Friday Leopard's will have two pieces of homework to complete. They are expected to complete their homework for the following Friday. Please do your best to support and encourage your child with their schoolwork.



Spellings are given out every week and we will have our quiz on Friday’s. Our latest spelling booklet is below.


If you would like to have a chat or pass on any information please feel free to come into class, I will be more than happy to see you. For a lengthier chat please arrange an after school appointment.

This term is going to be very busy but I'm looking forward to having lots of fun as well!
Miss McBride
