3F 2018 - 2019

 

Welcome to 3F with Mrs Fergie and Mrs Wilson!

 

The children in 3F have had a fantastic first week here at Seaton St Paul's C of E Junior School. We have been very impressed with how polite and respectful the children are. They are already getting used to their new routines and lessons.

 

This half term our theme is Flow. During this topic, we will be looking at rivers in Geography and plants in Science. We will investigate how water is transported through a plant as well as dissecting flowers to look at their many parts. We will create river chronological reports in English as well as using the short film 'Once in a Lifetime'  to write narratives. For our poetry, we will look at 'The River Poem' by Valerie Bloom. In Maths, we will continue our work on time before moving on to look at angles, shapes and properties of lines. Our collective worship theme is trust. We will be visited by West Cumbria Rivers Trust as well as going to Branthwaite to take part in river surveys and kick sampling. 3F have a busy and exciting term ahead so please remember to check this page regularly to see what we are up to!

3F have been experimenting with shape and colour in the style of Matisse.

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!
