Malmesbury Primary School Brings Out The Best In Everyone

Year 3

Welcome to Chestnut and Sycamore Class

Welcome back to school Year Three after a restful Christmas!  We are launching spring Term with our new topic "Plant Power".  The books we will be reading are Into the Forest by Anthony Browne and Varmints by Helen Ward.  We will continue to develop our times tables knowledge and must be learning our times tables and division facts at home so we can achieve our badges in times tables super stars.  In science we will be learning all about plants and how they grow and will be learning about our local environment and how we can look after it during our geography lessons.  In art, we are studying Henri Rousseau and how he mixes primary colours into secondary colours.

An exciting letter arrived...

Christmas Jumper Day!

The children in Chestnut class celebrated Christmas Jumper Day!  We all looked fantastic!  Take a look at the pictures!

ICE SKATING AT HAMPTON COURT PALACE!!

 

On Wednesday the 6th December, Year three went to Hampton Court Palace to ice skate!  We had the most amazing day!  We travelled on the bus and train (snacking as we went) and all of the children showed the kindest of manners to the public!

 

Check out the amazing pictures!  Who can you see?  Watch out for Miss Sopp's face...she had a blast!

Our mission: Kindness

In Year Three we are taking on the mission of spreading as much kindness as possible.  Chestnut class had to finish the sentence "I love my partner because..."  Take a look at their pictures and see some of the kind words they wrote about each other!

Something amazing was delivered to Year Three today to launch our new topic "From North to South".  The package was left in our new book corner!  Our book corner is filled with twinkly lights and a white looking cave.  Inside the package was: a thick coat, walking boots, chocolate, rice cake, instant soup, an atlas, a compass, some magnets and strangely a camera.

Our new book is "The Ice Palace" by Robert Swindells.  Already the children think someone from the Ice Palace could be watching us!

Cruise Day - 27th September 2017

 

The children in Year Three went on an amazing adventure, celebrating International Day of Languages.  The children boarded the Malmesbury Cruise line and set sail for Iceland.

 

The children had to pass through a strict passport control and security check before boarding the ship.  They then met Captain Rivaldi and had a ship snack.  Then, the children went to a fabulous dance with a disco ball!  Miss Bennett had the moves!

 

Finally, we went to the music room and had a good sing song of "Let It Go" in Icelandic.

 

The children completed flags, Northern Lights art work and made a scrap book for the classroom.  Take a look at our amazing pictures!

 

Back in Time: The Stone Age!

 

Year Three are going on an adventure back in time to the Stone Age for their first topic!  Chestnut class have been very busy building a time machine!  While Sycamore class have an amazing cave in their classroom!  Take a look at how we made it!

Times Tables Superstars!

 

By the end of Year Three, we hope that all children will have achieved their bronze badge. This involves fluent knowledge in the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Children should practise their times tables and related division facts each day.  The ones they should focus on are those that they need to master to be able to achieve their next Times Table Super Star
