Welcome to Year Three!
This is the Year Three section to our website! Here you will find lots of important information about what's going on in Year Three this term. We will also be posting some of our awesome work as well as photos of the fun activities and school trips we've been on.
Our topics for the Spring term
Our topic for the Spring Term is The Changing World. We will be looking at inventors and inventions, how technology has changed. We are looking forward to Mr Stones bringing in his Nintendo Switch and writing a report on it. We will also be researching India and focussing on Indian Animals.
Our Spring trips
We are hoping to book a boat trip on the River Tawe, we will be able to sail past the Hafod copper works and learn about how industry has changed over time.
The pupils will have the chance to visit our fantastic local library every three weeks to exchange their books that they have out on loan.
We understand that trips can be expensive, especially if there are a few children in the family. Please remember we are always here to help - Mrs Lenihan in the office is always happy to set up weekly payment plans to make it easier and discounts for siblings are offered. Trips are a valuable part of your child's education and also extremely enjoyable!
Each Year Three class has nine class iPads. We use them in all sorts of lessons. The apps that we use in class most often are:
Year Three after-school clubs
Year Three/Four football club is open to both boys and girls of all abilities. It takes place with Mr Stones, Mr Evans and Mr Davies every Tuesday after-school (3.20pm until 4.20pm). Remember you will need to bring kit and trainers into school to take part. Maybe Townhill Community School will produce the next Leon Britton!
The Junior choir is open to all Y3,4,5 and 6 pupils. It takes place with Mrs Jones and Mrs Cosker every Wednesday after school (3.20pm - 4pm). We will be asking you which songs you would like to sing in assembly, and learning them. We are hoping to visit our friends at Farleigh House and the Thomas Evans Complex before Easter.
Other important information for parents
Maths homework is given out every Friday and should be brought back to school by the following Friday. Words to practise for the weekly spelling quiz are also given out on a Friday ready for the spelling quiz the following Friday. If help is needed then give Mr Stones or Mrs Jones a shout! In Year Three we are learning the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 times tables so any practise with these at home would be great!
Book bags are sent home every night and should be brought back into school every morning. Reading every day at home (not only in school) will mean we have two Year Three classes full of fantastic readers!!
P.E lessons for Year Three take place every Thursday morning. P.E kit should be brought in for the children to get changed into (a t-shirt, shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms and trainers). Earrings need to be removed for pupils to be able to participate in the lesson.
