We've been making our Moving Monsters this week! We learnt how to incorporate a pneumatic system so they all have a moving part. They will be coming home at the beginning of next week so you can enjoy them too!

We have started reading Stig of the dump and are enjoying learning about where Stig lives. Today we discussed what we know about the characters so far and are looking forward to finding out more next week.

Formal written methods in Maths. We have begun learning how to use the column method for both addition and subtraction in maths. We still need some more practise but we are definitely getting better!


We have had a great week in 3B, including African Dancing, a shadows experiment, writing a diary entry from the perspective of a Stone Age child and completing our unit in PE where we have been practising different movement patterns. 

Enjoy a break next week and I look forward to seeing you on Monday 1st November!

As part of Black History Month, we have been studying the poetry of Benjamin Zephaniah. We ended the week by writing our own versions of his poem, A day in the life of Danny the cat.

In Art we have been looking at drawing techniques and using layering in our artwork. Here are a couple of examples of our Sgraffito pieces.

We had a visit from Farmer Baines on zoom this week. He told us all about the crops he has been harvesting and what those crops are used to make. We even found out that one of the fields of potatoes he is harvesting will make around 4 million medium packs of McDonalds chips!

In Science this week we learnt about Light Sources. Can you find any at home that we didn't think of? Are they natural or artificial?

Homework and reading books have gone home today. There are also spellings to learn for a test on Thursday!

We have been very busy at school this week and started reading our class book. Ask your child what has happened already!


Hello 3B. My name is Miss Baines and I am going to be your teacher this year. I am really looking forward to meeting you all on Monday and starting to get to know you all. Please remember to bring your best smile - you've got all weekend to practice!

I will be teaching you most of the time, except on Tuesday afternoons, when Mr Barton will be your teacher. Mrs Baillie is our teaching assistant in Year 3 so you'll get to meet her on Monday too.

Our PE day is Wednesday so please come to school in your PE kit on that day. That means a plain white t-shirt and plain black or navy blue shorts (or plain black or blue jogging bottoms if it's cold).

Have a great final weekend of your holidays and I'll see you on Monday.

Miss Baines
