Green Class

Welcome to Green Class!

Green Class are 29 fantastic, enthusiastic Year 3 children. Our teachers are Mrs Hassan and Mrs Bullock and our teaching assistant is Mrs DaSilva.  We have a great time learning together! Have a look at our page on the gallery to see some exciting things we have been doing.

Our learning journey topics this term are How To Train Your Dragon and Rocks, Soils and Volcanoes. 

In English, we will be writing letters based on the book How To Train Your Dragon. After half-term. we will be reading books and leaflets about how to care for different pets. We will then design our own dragons and write a manual for how to look after them. 

Our science topic this term is rocks and soils. We will be finding out about how different rocks are formed and grouping them according to their properties. Also, we will be finding out what soil consists of and performing investigations into the permeability of different soils and how we can prevent soil erosion. 

We will be learning to play hockey. We will also be using one of our P.E sessions for Forest School. 


This term, we will be learning about how to greet people in French and say our names. We will also be learning to count to 20 and the names of the months in French. 

In computing, we will be learning about how digital devices work and are connected. We will also learn about how computer networks can be used to share information.


We will be discovering how volcanoes are formed and where they are located in the world. Also, we will be looking at how the landscape changes over time due to weathering and erosion. As part of this study, we will be visiting Puzzlewood to look at the scowles.  


We will be evaluating Christmas cards and creating our own cards with moving mechanisms. 



In music, we will be learning the terms pitch and tempo to describe music and learning to sing The Dragon Song. We will also be playing simple songs on the glockenspiel by recognising musical notation. Also, we will be learning Christmas Carols in preparation for our Christmas Carol Concert.


We are going to be learning about the artist Mark Rothko. We will create our own Mark Rothko artworks using chalk and in Forest School we will use natural materials to create a palette of different colours. Also we will be creating weavings using blocks of colour. As part of our Harvest celebrations, we are going to look at the work of the textile artist Eloise Renouf and we will create a composition using sponge paintings that we will cut out and arrange to make trees. 
Weekly spellings are in half-termly booklets and tested on Friday.  Times tables will be practiced daily.  This will be the main basis of your home learning.

Please read with you child for at least three times in the week.  Record any reading your child does at home into their home reading record. Reading records will be taken in and checked on Thursdays.
