Year 3 2022 - 2023

Mr Randall

I enjoy teaching and like to offer exciting and engaging themes to help with children's learning. I am keen to involve children in P.E. activities and competitions throughout the year. I am a FA level 1 football coach and run the school football club.

Outside school some of my interests include playing badminton, DIY and learning to water ski as well as looking after my two children.

Welcome to KS2 and Year 3.

Year 3 should be a fun place to be for you with lots of exciting projects and activities to do. From lots of P.E to studying rocks and crumbling, you will soon become used to KS2! It will be great to be back and have a class full of children. The classroom was recently decorated during the first lockdown in wonderful colours with a new reading corner. It's actually the best classroom in the school now (Well I think it is!).

This half term we will be reading 'Winter's Child' by Angela McAllister (ISBN 978-1-78370-162-9). From a Kate Greenaway Medal–winning illustrator comes a modern fable of winter’s magic. When Tom wishes winter would never end, he meets another boy who shares his love of snow and ice. Playing together every day, Tom doesn’t care that spring hasn’t come—until he realizes the terrible effect the unending winter is having on his sick grandmother. When he realizes his friend is Winter’s child, he knows they must say good-bye if the seasons are ever to change. The book reinforces and teaches valuable elements of the Year 3 curriculum. We may even be able to act out some of these things if it snows this year!

We will be continuing 'Engineering' which relates to the 'Engineering Habits of Mind' (EHoM). This will be linked with other curriculum areas thus making learning more relevant and meaningful. There will be lots of fun and exciting things to do! We might even work with year 4 on some projects!

Homework will consist of maths, English, EducationCity and spelling/phonics as well as reading and doing Times Table Rock Stars. 

 I am looking forward to teaching your children this term and excited about all they have to offer.

Continuing the learning journey at home……

If you are having to isolate, please note that there is work on Seesaw should you be able to do it. We hope you are ok and sorry that you are having to isolate in these difficult times. There are activities on EducationCity as well. Let the school know if you don't have access to Seesaw asap.
