Year 3 - Centaurs

Welcome to Centaurs

I’m Miss Sharpe and I’m very happy to be the teacher of Centaur Class. We are very lucky to have the wonderful Mrs Young who challenges us all to be the best we can be. In Year 3 we love to learn and enjoy working independently and as part of a team. We have the same 3 rules throughout the school which makes it easy for us to follow them. They are: Keep safe, Use your Values and Be the best that you can be” We learn about and practice these rules every day.

Our Daily Routine

Every day in Year 3 we have maths, English and spelling lessons, as well as daily reading and mental maths activities. Every afternoon we have Guided Reading, where we read fascinating texts and discuss the information we have read as a whole class. We also learn about other subjects such as Geography and PE, and have some fantastic topics.  On Thursday afternoons Mrs Young teaches us Religious Education and French. At the end of every day we talk about our feelings and how to keep each other safe.

In Year 3 we have our playtime at 10:45-11:00 and our lunchtime at 12:00-13:00.


Our Year ahead

As we start our Key Stage 2 journey we look forward to using our previous learning and becoming the best learners we can be.  We have lots of fun activities to look forward to, from exploding volcanos to becoming spies!


We believe in the power of a Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset is very important to us in Year 3.  We work hard to feel comfortable with making mistakes, and using these to further our learning. We also learn how important it is to listen to feedback to help us improve.


Key skills are important

In Year 3 we work on our key skills every day, through daily reading, spelling and mental maths lessons. We also use these skills in other subjects such as History, reading information etc.


How we keep our bodies and mind fit and healthy  

Each week we have two PE lessons during which we learn lots of different skills, as well as how to keep our bodies healthy through diet and exercise. We take part in a daily fitness session, either outside on in our classroom.  Sometimes we link our fitness to maths, counting while we exercise!   Every day after lunch we have mindfulness time, this help us to relax ready for the afternoon lessons.
