Year 3 - Sycamore


Well Done to Eiliyah Khan who is our  home learner of the week!


Well Done to Roan Bradshaw who is our key worker learner of the week!


I would like to welcome you all to Sycamore (Year 3).  My name is Mrs Robinson and I am Sycamore's Class Teacher.  We also have two lovely TA's in our class called Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Salkeld. We are all so happy to see you all back in school.  It has been great to see so many smiling faces eager to learn. 


There are a few new changes this year but everyone seems to be getting to grips with them all very quickly and if you have any questions please feel free to ask. 


If you do need to ask me anything, you can have a chat before or after school or you can make an appointment to see me at the school office. 


I am really looking forward to this year and all the fun things that we have planned.







As we have plenty of new changes in place, here is a list of reminders for you all. 


  • Outdoor PE is on a Friday for our class.  This means that on a Friday you are able to come into school in your outdoor PE kit.  Remember your kit is a plain white t-shirt, blue or black joggers with a matching jacket.  Please no football kits or shirts. 
  • We are sending home two reading books a week.  These will be given out for the week and need to be in school everyday.  On a Friday, we will collect them in and they will go into quarantine for the next week and the children will get two new books. 
  • Homework and spellings will be added into the 'Homework' sub-page below.  Please check this weekly and check with inside your child's reading record to find out which spelling group they are in.  We will be having a spelling test every Friday.


If you have any questions or you are unsure about anything please ask me and I will do my best to help.

Crazy Hair Day!


We have lots of exciting work planned in English for this half term.  

We are currently reading Paddington Bear and doing lots of work based on this story.  Paddington even sent us his suitcase and some marmalade to help us with our work. We can't wait to see what else he might send.


This half term we will focus on subordination for time e.g. using when, after and before, conjunctions and creating complex sentences. 



Here we are performing The Spider and The Fly.

In Maths this half term, we are going to focus on our basic number skills.  We have already started learning all about place value and have been making some two and three digit numbers. We will then move onto learning some new methods for addition and subtraction.  


Make sure you are practising your times tables.  We will be having a test every Friday to check our knowledge. We will be focusing on the 2, 3, 4 5 and 10 times tables.  Check the home work tab for the times table of the week. 

Have a look at these pictures of us having a go at the written method for addition.  We are loving having a go at some hard Year 3 Maths.

In Science, we are learning all about Healthy Eating.  We have designed a healthy, balanced meal and have learnt all about the different food groups.

Here we are creating our own Healthy Eating posters

In History, we are learning all about the Stone Age.  We have already learnt all about where they lived and what they ate.  We have really been enjoying learning all about their lives.

Check out our posters all about Skara Brae, the best preserved Stone Age settlement.

Here are some examples of our Stone Age meals

Future World Changers


Have a look at what we would like to be when we grow up.


Here are Jino. He helps us with out PSHE. 

We also have our own cat, which we named Mittens.  She helps us to know when it is time to pause and think in PSHE.

This week in PSHE we had to make a card for a new pupil.  The little boy called Sam had never been to school before because he had been quite poorly and he was worried about looking different.  

We made some amazing cards and showed off how kind and caring we are.


Have a look at some of our pictures and messages to Sam.

Here we are during the 'calm' section of PSHE. We have been enjoying doing some guided meditation to calm us down.
