Year 3

Welcome to Class 3P and Class 3S

Mrs Ashton | Phase Leader

This term I am looking forward to...

I am looking forward to learning more about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and how housing and tools improved over time. I am also looking forward to delving into our new DT project, exploring linkages and levers. Finally, I am looking forward to exploring and reading new books with my class.

My top tip for learning is...

Read at home every day - It could be your books from school, comics, poetry or graphic novels. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." 

Always try your hardest. Everyone makes mistakes, but we learn from them by persevering and trying again. 

Mrs Murphy

This term I am looking forward to...

Teaching Year 3 pupils about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. I think they are going to be really enthused about this area of History. I am also looking forward to teaching our outdoor Real PE sessions and Science as these are both favourite subjects of mine.

My top tip for learning is...

Revisit areas that you know you are less confident in as often as you can. It can be scary to feel that you have a gap in knowledge but the only way to improve is to keep trying.

Also make sure that you give your brain regular breaks - step away and switch off to save you from overloading.

Everyone a Mayflower Reader | Hear Me Become A Reader

There is nothing quite like playing back something that you have rehearsed or performed and just... listening: feeling pride in your successes; noticing the areas for improvement and acting on them. This is what real learning is all about!

'Hear Me Become A Reader' is our way of enabling pupils to journal their reading journey; giving pupils ownership over their development within the subject. With more and more pupils uploading audio readings on a weekly basis, we wanted to make this process more interactive and even easier than ever.

With this in mind, 'Hear Me Become A Reader' has changed platforms - no more weekly assignments or uploading of separate audio files. With Microsoft OneNote, pupils now record and upload on the platform itself, to a confidential section in the 'class notebook' - just between the child and their teacher. What's more, pupils (and parents) can comment under each recording, as well as adding to a 'collaboration space' where pupils can recommend new books to their classmates. There is also a 'content library' containing key reading resources to help equip your child with the tools they may need to become more fluent and comprehensive readers.

The same expectations of a weekly recorded reading will be required as part of your child's home learning diet; but within the class notebook, pupils could easily upload a recording every night of the week if they wanted to (as has been requested by pupils and parents).

If using a laptop or PC, pupils can still access their class notebook via their TEAMS account, or if using a tablet or mobile phone, you can download the Microsoft OneNote APP from your APP store and sign in using your child's MS TEAMS login details (please note it can sometimes take up to 24 hours to sync notebooks).

Have a go and explore the class notebook - the more your child uses it, the more confident they will become at leading their own learning. We can't wait to see how pupils use this new tool to enhance their learning at Mayflower!

Please see the links below, which provide step-by-step instructions in 'logging in' and 'recording your reading'.
