3C 2017 - 2018


Welcome to 3C with Miss Cathcart and Mrs Johnston!


We have been very impressed with how well the children are already settling into life at Seaton St Paul's C of E Junior School. They arrived with positive attitudes and brilliant manners. We are really looking forward to a busy and exciting year.


This half term our theme is Scrumdiddlyumptious. During this topic we will focus on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. We will be looking at nutrition in Science and respect in Collective Worship as well as taking part in school events such as Harvest Festival.

Year 3 had some special visitors today in the form of birds of prey.

This was a fantastic 'WOW' lesson to start our new topic, 'Predator'. Thank you to Richard from Silverband Falconry for an interesting, informative day.

The children in 3C used the playground and field to find a range of rock types. They created field sketches and stone rubbings to help them record the rocks that they found.

3C 2016 - 2017


Welcome to 3C with Miss Cathcart and Mrs Johnston!

If you enter 3C you are sure to find hard workers who are proud of their work. We are always looking for ways to improve and are currently working hard with our times tables and reading. We strive for five!


Summer Term 


We can hardly believe that we are in our final term of Year 3 and that we have nearly completed a whole year at SJS! This term we are looking forward to our new topic, Predator. Sports day and the summer show are also fast approaching so we are all set for another busy term. Friendship is our new Collective Worship value and we have begun exploring what characteristics a good friend should have. 


Spring Term


We are enjoying being back at school, using our growth mindset and perseverance to help us work on some challenging topics. This half term we will be looking at different factors that affect plant growth, heroes and villains in Ancient Egyptian times, and how different religions pray. We have also begun our swimming lessons and Kidsafe sessions.


We can't believe that it is March already and we have been at Seaton St Paul's C of E Junior School for more than half a year! We have started our Mighty Metals topic and love The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We have also made some Stone Age bread and cave drawings. Our swimming skills are improving every week. Celebrating difference is our new PSHE topic and it has been very interesting so far. 

Autumn term

We are all starting to settle in to life at Seaton Junior School and look forward to the year ahead. Please come back to look at the exciting projects that we do in the weeks ahead.


Our topic this half term is Scrumdiddlyumptious! We are looking forward to reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl which is our current class novel.


In September, we will be looking at Fair-trade products and the different food groups as well as getting to grips with place value and instruction writing. We will spend time researching nutrition online and will track a banana on its journey to our lunchboxes!


3C have had a tremendous first half term. We enjoyed our school trip to Tesco learning all about where our foods come from and what they contain. We are beginning to master many maths techniques. Our 4 a day calculations have really helped us with this. We are looking forward to next half term when we will be moving on to looking at volcanoes and rocks as part of our exciting curriculum!

During the half term leading up to Christmas we have been learning all about rocks, volcanoes and the Christmas story. We have completed Science and Geography experiments as well as rehearsing for our upcoming Christmas services. In English, we have written some brilliant diary entries and non-chronological reports. We really enjoyed using chocolate buttons to help us add and subtract fractions and look forward to Spring term!
