What are we getting up to in Y3?

Welcome to Year 3!

We have been super-impressed by the way that our new Year 3 children have settled so well into life at FCJA. We are now looking forward to many exciting learning opportunities and having lots of fun along the way. If you have any questions, please come and see us at our classroom doors between 8:45 and 8:55am. Failing that, leave a message at reception and we'll get back to you.

Best wishes,

The Y3 Teaching Team

Autumn Term: TEAM MINION

This term's learning is centred around the idea of TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) challenges and working together. This has really encouraged and supported the children to settle well in their new classes and, in many cases, make new friendships. Engaging and exciting team challenges have also supported the children in developing skills such as resilience and perseverance - skills which will be useful to our young learners as they move through FCJA. The Y3 children have been competing in a competition to win a day out at Mojo Active. Will we get there!? You bet we will! Friday 10th November is the day when our 'little Minions' become totally mojo active!!



Spring Term: Elephants Never Forget

Returning after an enjoyable Christmas break, our Year 3s were met by some incredibly tall circus performers asking if they had seen an elephant! After stepping through their classroom door, the children quickly realised their new theme for the spring term was ‘elephants’. During the day, Berzerkaz Circus taught each class a wide range of circus skills which they all found fun, entertaining and challenging. The day concluded with a short performance from our two visitors where they showed off their own skills for our enjoyment.

Summer Term: You're Hired!

Have you ever thought what our young learners might grow up to be one day? A baker? Heating engineer? Dancer? Teacher? Builder? Marine biologist? Nuclear physicist? Future Prime Minister? Who knows!? One thing's for sure - we'll do everything we can to ensure our children fulfil their potential and have the best possible start! In this term's theme - You're Hired! - children will learn all about the fascinating world of work and focus on several occupations in the next few weeks. What does the job involve? What skills,training, qualifications might they need? How long might this take? How much could they earn? What are their long-term, future prospects? The answers to these questions (and undoubtedly more!) will steer the children through their learning. It would be great of course if some of our Year 3 parents could come in and pass on their knowledge about their job too!
