Welcome to the Year 3R class page. This year I am your teacher and our class is supported by Mrs Masson. This year I am looking forward to having lots of fun, working hard and learning lots of new things together! We hope to create an exciting and stimulating learning environment with opportunities for all children to learn and reflect.

This term we have being learning tennis skills, over the term the progress has been amazing we could have the next Andy Murray.
To help children to understand the impact of earthquakes we learned about what damage can happen to buildings. Children looked at different designs to see what sort of structures were used to be more earthquake proof. They designed and made some of their own and we tested to see if they could withstand our jelly earthquake.
Year 3 French Challenge 1!
Bonjour Year 3!
I am missing being in school, but I have some French challenges for you since I won’t be seeing you. Don’t worry if you cannot remember because the answers are at the end. Just have a go and check what it should be. If you get correct answers, well done you, but if not, do not worry, because you are still learning!
As a mark of respect we had a 1 minute silence at 11am and we made poppies in afternoon which the children proudly wore.
