Welcome to the Class Page of Year 3!
Curriculum Overview: Year 3
Our Spring term school theme: Footprints
PE days: Tuesday and Thursday. Please note, for this half-term Thursday’s lesson is a LIVE Zoom session and you will need to sign in on-time.
Some of us are working at home at the moment, and some of us are working in school. Whilst many things may be different, there is much that remains the same. Mrs Patterson is here between Monday and Wednesday, and Mrs Slattery is here on Thursday and Friday. You will see us every day on Seesaw, and we will continue to teach you and mark your work. We will worship together and celebrate your achievements, and we will look forward to the time that we spend together each week.

It is so important to try and stay active and fit, even in lockdown. It is good for your body, but also for your mind, it makes you feel refreshed and more positive. Here are some physical challenges for you to try. Wherever possible try to get outside every day, the fresh air is exactly what we need when we feel a bit “cooped up” at home. Maybe you could try to pick one each day to try.
- Get out and about – try to find a new local walk or path which you haven’t walked on before
- Welly and brolly walk – get out and enjoy the rain, jump in the puddles and harness your inner Peppa Pig – “jumping up and down in muddy puddles, splish, splash, splosh, splish, splash!”
- Welly play – some nice outdoor activities – outdoor-play-wellies
- Try this winter scavenger hunt while you are out and about Winter-scavenger-hunt
- 15 minute mile – can you attempt to run for 15 minutes, if not run what you can, walk to catch your breath, then run again
- Go for a woodland walk and take this ‘twigs’ sheet with you – which trees can you find? twig-id-sheet
- Winter fun – this booklet is bursting with fun outdoor activities – winter_booklet
- Play! On the park, in your back garden, get outside and use your imagination.
- Ride your bike or scooter.
- Joe Wicks – short action packed bursts of action.
- Put on your favourite music and dance like no one is watching!
- Follow the leader – include lots of active movements
- Play football/basketball/tennis/throw and catch etc
We’ll keep adding to this list, but most of all, have fun!
