Year 3 - Beijing Class
Welcome to Beijing Class
Hello Beijing class! Hope you are keeping well and safe. The teachers at Jubilee have been working hard to make sure you can still keep learning at home. Check this page frequently as I'll be uploading activities that I want you to complete at home. I'm so proud of your work and resilience in this difficult time.
Keep going, keeping working hard and keeping bouncing back,
Good Afternoon Beijing!
What a rollercoaster this year has been. You've been an amazing class and you have worked so hard across the year, even when you've been working from home. I'm so proud of all of you and I'm very grateful that I've been your teacher this year. Have a fantastic summer and make sure you take a well-deserved break!
Good Afternoon Beijing!
It was lovely to talk to so many of you last week, it was great to hear your voices and see how each of you were doing. It sounded like you have all been working hard with your home learning. Keep up the hard work in your home learning over the next few weeks. It'll be summer soon and we'll all have a well-deserved break. It made me really happy to speak to all of you, stay positive and keep looking after yourselves.
Hi again Beijing!
I hope you and your families are well. Hopefully you've been engaging with, and enjoying, the work we have been setting for you. Make sure you're looking after yourself and all those around you. Hopefully things will return to a new 'normal' in the next few months, everything feels very uncertain at the moment! You can expect a phone call from Mr Long and I later this week to catch up and see how you are all doing - I'm looking forward to talking to you all.
Hello again Beijing!
I hope you have been working hard and keeping busy. It feels like we've been in lock-down for quite some time now! Please make sure you take time to relax and look after yourselves. It's so important to keep yourself happy, healthy and safe. Remember everything we have learnt about our Jubilee keys so far - stay resilient and keep bouncing back in these difficult times.
This will be our last half term together as year 3 so it's the perfect time to be preparing for year 4 by practising your times tables daily, getting into a good book and working on your handwriting. Make sure you are looking after yourselves and setting a workable pace for your home learning. I'm really looking forward to seeing you all again in the future. This half-term our Key is "Happy, Healthy, Safe" which we will be discovering more about in your home learning over the coming weeks. In the meantime, do the things that make you happy, eat the food that keeps you healthy and stay safe!
I hope you and your families are well. Hopefully you've been engaging with, and enjoying, the work we have been setting for you. It's vital you stay positive and find a routine that works for you. I'm missing you all and I'm really excited for when we can all see each other again. Try to fill your days with lots of different activities: walking, exercising, working, helping your family, reading, drawing, singing and anything else you enjoy doing. Make sure you're reading plenty and chatting lots with your family. It's a challenging and different time for us all and I'm sure you're being exceptionally resilient as you have been in our classroom.
Wednesday - Maths and Science
Good Morning Beijing!
I hope you've been keeping busy and helping around the house. Hopefully you've enjoyed using the online lessons and have started to master fractions and write superb instructions! Remember you can send any work to the email address above and I'll email you back with my thoughts. It's a great way to stay in touch with each other if you'd like to hear from me. If I'm very impressed, your work could be featured on the gallery. I've been keeping busy with lots of baking cakes and desserts. My favourite thing I've made was a lemon drizzle cake, it was really yummy! Stay home, stay safe and we can all look forward to a time when we can see each other again.
Hello again Beijing!
With May starting I hope you are all looking after yourselves and your family. Take some time each day for yourself, to relax and unwind. To help with this you should check out our new 'Mindfulness Zone' on our website. It's full of great calming activities and ways to relax yourself! Also, be sure to send any work you've completed to the email address at the top of the class page, I'd love to see what you're doing at home. If I'm very impressed, your work could be featured on the gallery. You should keep an eye on the gallery and rainbow gallery pages as they are filling up with loads of great work and I'd be very happy to see your work featured there too. Remember to stay home and stay safe. Keep up the hard work and resilience you have shown be so often in the classroom and we'll get through this tricky time and see each other soon.

Remember that you're always 'ready' and 'on a roll'.
A new year means new challenges! We welcome all of our new pupils to Key Stage Two and promise you an amazing year ahead. We will be reading some fantastic books, discovering some amazing facts in science and the humanities as well as developing some fascinating maths skills. We will work hard and play enthusiastically, co-operate confidently and being the very best versions of ourselves at all times.
Autumn Term Topic 'Let Us Shine'
Our exciting topic this term is LET US SHINE which we will be exploring across the Curriculum. This will include: light and shadows (Science), fireworks (English), inspirational people (PSHE) and so much more! We will be reading and studying the book, 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman in class and producing lovely, exciting work based on this.
In our study of 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' we have had many opportunities to role play. Here we are pretending to be Lila and Lalchand, discussing Lila's dream of becoming a true firework maker.
We did a drama activity in the hall searching for Lila after she had run away from home. The children used their speaking skills to ask villagers where Lila had gone!
In geography we created, as a class, a 3D map of the fictional world that the 'Firework Maker's Daughter' takes place in, complete with rivers and a volcano.
Given all that we'd learnt about the characters in our English novel, we made shadow puppets of them in our DT lessons. This links to our science topic of light and shadows. The children performed a full recreation of the events in the book and did a fantastic job speaking in character and using their brilliant puppets.
As part of our English lessons, we have been authors and writing the next section of 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' using our own creative ideas. Here we are creating fireworks using onomatopoeia, designing our own dance for different fireworks and even painting a full display!
With Christmas coming up, we have been retelling the classic story of 'The Second Shepherd's Play'. We have acted out the key scenes and studied the characters and setting in depth.
We were invited to Titmas Baptist Church to learn more about Christmas, take part in a challenging quiz and also sharpen our singing skills by sharing some Christmas classics. Thank you for having us!
Finally, we presented our Year 3 Christmas Carol service. After weeks of hard work, preparation and vocal practice we were very excited to share our Christmas cheer with you all. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did - Have a wonderful holiday season and happy new year.
The children had an opportunity to demonstrate their passionate persuasive skills this term. They tackled 'Saving Planet Earth' and became experts in how pollution is changing the world.
