Buttermere - Y3

Buttermere class is a group of fantastic Year 3 children. We have settled back into life at school happily and are enjoying the routine of learning in this new school environment.  We are taught by Mrs Clark (at the start of the week) and Mrs Cookson (at the end of the week). Our teaching assistants, Mrs Osborne and Miss Holmes, help us with our learning too. We are looking forward to continuing our exciting learning over the year.


Our normal mornings in school include Reading and Literacy. We are reading ‘The Thieves of Ostia’ which is a Roman mystery story. It is a very exciting story with children solving a mystery in Roman times. We have been enjoying learning some Roman words and learning all about life as a Roman from the main characters Flavia and Jonathan. We have been writing some poems this term already and concentrating on using adjectives, verbs and alliteration.


In the afternoons we’ve been completing our Maths No Problem work, focussing on learning our times tables using Times Table Rock Stars – which the children can also log in at home. We have also been competing against each other on Sumdog to earn coins and improve our maths knowledge. The class have all taken home their log in details for these websites so they can continue their learning at home.


Our PE days are on Tuesday and Friday and we love keeping active and playing fun games together outside. Lots of children in Buttermere class enjoy playing on their scooters at break times and sensibly wear their helmets when scooting. This is a fantastic form of exercise and keep us active. The outdoor space at school is very popular and the class love to play in the nature area, play football, climb on the climbing wall and play with all of our play equipment at playtimes.


We love reading and we have many great books in our book boxes. We know that reading helps our writing, so Mrs Clark and Mrs Cookson would like us to read every school night at home. In addition to reading our own books, we have planned some excellent group readers this year. Additional ideas for fantastic reading books check out for the 50 best books for Year 3 children to read.

  1. Be kind and helpful
