Welcome to Hazel Class' Page
We are a Year 3 class of 29 children.
Our teacher is Mrs Carrington.
We are supported by Ms Sockett and Ms Naish.
Class Key Information:
We have PE every Thursday morning this half term.
Every Friday homework is given out to be returned by the following Friday, which is when we test spellings.
Children should be logging into Doodle Learning each day if possible, but at least three times a week.
Doodle Learning gives them targeted questions to support their learning. These are four areas the children can access: Maths, Times Tables, English and Spelling. Their log on details are stuck into the back of their reading records. If there are any issues logging in, please get in contact.
The children have enjoyed learning new songs to help them learn their times tables with lots of children already making their way to achieving the different levels of our Times Tables Olympics.
Here are links to the songs we've been using:
Formal Written Methods
In Year 3, the children are introduced to the formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (column and bus stop). If you would like to support your child with this at home, please take a look at our calculation policy to see how we teach them at school.

Year 3 Science
This week, Year 3 came together to begin their new Science learning. They worked together to build skeletons. We then learnt the correct layout and names of some of the bones. Challenge them to tell you where their mandible is!
A Visit from the Big Bad Wolf
The children have had a fantastic term in their writing. It began with a visit from the Big Bad Wolf! We followed the clues; there were footprints, a wanted poster, a red cape and some children even heard howling! The children used their learning to write some excellent traditional tales. This past two weeks, we have been learning to perform the Adventures of Isabel poem by Ogden Nash. The children did amazingly and took part in a poetry slam with the other classes from Church View. It was wonderful to see them performing so confidently. They have now written their own verse for the poem which they are performing in class.
We started our Maths this year with some challenges around place value. Here we are working on putting a hundred square back together! This challenge is from Nrich, which has a plethora of other Maths challenges freely available to grow those Maths brains.
Boats for the Gingerbread Man
Hazel Class have had a wonderful start to the year as they are settling into the expectations that being in Key Stage 2 brings. We started the year with some team building activities, including building boats to help the Gingerbread man escape from the fox across the river without dissolving! The children worked hard together to test different materials which would work to make a boat that would be both waterproof and sturdy. Check out our photos to see some excellent boats!
