Welcome to 3F!

Welcome to Miss Fairclough's Y3 Class!

 

Thank you for having a look at our blog. We are very proud of all the hard work that we do in Year 3 and are all very excited to share it with you.

Our teacher is Miss Fairclough, and she thinks that she is the luckiest teacher in the world because she works with us!

Mr Thomas teaches us on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

 

Here you can find out lots of information about our learning in and around school, and also keep up to date with any news, events and homework.

 

Important Information:

Homework: Sent home every Friday, due back the following Wednesday.

 

Spellings: Sent home every Friday, tested the following Friday

You can find out how your child scored on their new sheet of spellings that they bring home, as they will write it at the top once they have been marked.

 

Times Tables: Sent home every Friday, tested every Friday.

 

Reading books: Changed at least once a week - the day varies for each child depending on our guided reading timetable.

 

All children are expected to have their full PE kit in school every day, which is: a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.

 

Enjoy looking through our Y3 journey!

Amani Utupe

As we travel down this weary road,

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

We need strength to carry on our load,

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

 

Chorus:

Grant us peace, give us courage,

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

Grant us peace, give us courage,

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi

 

Road is rocky and the way is dark,

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

Every road has a different fork,

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

 

Chorus

 

Hallelujah Hallelujah!

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

Hallelujah Hallelujah!

Amani Utupe Na Ustawi.

Year 3 Homework

21st October 2016

Thank you to Jason for designing this week’s homework! Our new topic after half term is called ‘Heroes and Villains’. For your half term homework, we would like you to research an existing hero, using the internet and books. This could be a fictional character or a real life person.

Then, in your purple homework books, we would like you to draw the hero and you can present the information in any way you like – fact file, paragraph, bullet points etc...

Have a wonderful half term holiday,

Miss Fairclough

Harvest Festival Food Collection!

 

​This week in school, we have been celebrating Harvest! We are collecting food for an amazing charity called 'The Mustard Tree' which works very hard to prevent homelessness in and around Greater Manchester.

http://www.mustardtree.org.uk/​

At St Luke's, we want to help this charity as much as possible so each class is having a competition to see how much food we can donate. The class which provides the most food will win a special prize from Miss Michael!

 

​A letter was sent home earlier this week showing the types of food and other items that can be donated. All the food donations will need to be in school by FRIDAY 30th SEPTEMBER so that we can choose a winner!

 

​Let's make a difference! #team3f #teamstlukes #harvest #mustardtree #charity
