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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
