Miss Puleio (3B) and Mrs Cook (3Y) are supported by Miss Hudson and Mrs Serieux.
At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.
Supporting Learning at Home
We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Miss Puleio or Mrs Cook.
Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.
In September we held a Curriculum Evening to support parents with understanding the expectations for Year 3. Please click here to view our presentation.
Year Three Expectations
The children in Year Three are assessed against the Target Tracker bands to ensure all children are making good progress.
|The end of year Three expectation is a 3S.|
Children are given targets to move their learning forward.
For a child to be scored as Secure at the end of the year it is expected that children have achieved at least 80% of these statements.
News & Photos
3Y showcased their talents and musical ability in an assembly. We played 3 songs on the ukulele using the A string, C string and G string. We have been learning the skill of playing a stringed instrument this year and enjoyed the opportunity to perform.
3Y become expert soil analysers this week as part of their science learning.
We found 3 different types of soils and used magnifying glasses to look at the colour, texture and soil particles. The children enjoyed being outside using our school environment for science.
Year 3 have enjoyed linking DT with maths in our focus week.
They designed and made marble runs. The children had to learn about angles, shape, perimter and time to complete this project. The children enjoyed testing their designs and evaluating the effectiveness. They learnt the smaller the angle the harder the maze was to complete in a quick time.
Year 3 are learning about forces and magnets. Mrs Cook set the year 3 children a challenge. To move the plastic bowl around the water using a magnet, but do not touch the bowl. The children were successful by putting another magnet inside the bowl, the bowl still floated and the attraction of the magnet moved the bowl without the magnet actually touching the bowl. Well done year 3!
3Y worked really hard on their timetables using TT rocksatrs. We worked so hard, that we won the competition by scoring more points than 3B. Mr Myers rewarded us with extra play on Friday which was so much fun it has inspired us to work just as hard and try to win again.
