Y3 Neptune/Eclipse

Welcome to Year 3!


Welcome to the webpage for Neptune and Eclipse! Our teachers this half term are Mr Kirby (Neptune) and Miss Cross (Eclipse). We also have Mrs Lee, Mrs Marklew, Mrs Addy and Mrs Mitchell to help us.


Our topic this half term is 'Sub Zero'! In Science, we are experimenting with magnets and how they relate to the North and South Poles, in History we are learning about Ernest Shackleton and his life as an explorer, in Design and Technology we are testing different materials to design a boat, in Computing we are working on our research skills and demonstrating our knowledge of safe internet use, and in P.E. we are becoming gymnasts. 


To make sure we can all participate in P.E, we need to bring our kits every Monday and Thursday. We only need indoor kits this half term, but this will change later in the year.


Home learning is also important and each week children receive a set of spellings and a piece of work to complete. These are handed out on Fridays and need to be returned by the following Friday. Reading at home is also encouraged and rewarded and we recommend at least 3 days a week. Children may complete their home learning tasks on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime catch-up club sessions with Miss Cross and Mr Kirby. 


If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to speak to a member of our team.

Watch the dance we learnt in P.E!

This dance incorporates lots of physical skills that we need to learn such as balance, coordination and timing. We learnt this over several weeks!

Hear the song we're learning in Music!

Have a listen to the song we're currently learning in Music. It is helping us to understand pitch change and tempo.
