Year 3 Class Assembly - 2nd February 2018

COME ONE, COME ALL, TO THE GREATEST CLASS ASSEMBLY OF ALL! We have impressed everyone with our circus-themed class assembly (linked to our English work). We got dressed up, wrote descriptive pieces of writing and performed line poetry for the whole school and our parents. Everyone is so proud!


Leon and the Place Between 

For Spring 1, we are studying the magical book Leon and the Place Between. Set at a mysterious circus, the story follows an enthusiastic young boy Leon as he steps into the 'Place Between'. We have been really busy writing new pages of the book of some unusual circus acts which can be seen below! (We think they're even better than the originals!)


Year 3 Olympics - 7th December 2017

We had the best morning at Todmorden Sports Centre taking part in the Year 3 Olympics. There were lots of different activities to keep us busy. To top off a great trip...WE WON! All of Shade are so proud of Year 3's efforts. Below are some group pictures we took when we were having a rest!


Multiplication and Division

We have been really fortunate to have Mrs Sutcliffe in some of our maths lessons. She has been supporting us with fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions to do with multiplication and division. We found the Base 10 resources really useful when practicing TU X U and TU ÷ U calculations.
