Class Teachers

Ms Stabana
Ms Khanom

Welcome to the Spring Term Year 3. Miss Stabana and Miss Khanom are looking forward to some excellent story writing, using traditional tales (Jack and Beanstalk), letter writing (formal and informal) and debates.

In Maths Year 3 have been working tirelessly to learn their timetables and this hard work is definitely making a huge difference.  This term we will continue work on our timetables learning adventure. As well as, timetables we will be practising our reasoning skills and learning new methods for multiplying a two digit number by a one-digit number.

Last of all, we will also learn about Rocks and Animals including Humans in science. Finally, for history and art our learning will be based on; the Stone Age, the Romans and blending colours using different types of paint.

True Colours

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged, oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
The darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small
Show me a smile then
Don't be unhappy
Can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
Just call me up
'Cause I will always be there
And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
I see your true colors
Shining through (true colors)
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful (they're beautiful)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh like a rainbow
Ooh can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
Ooh oh oh oh
This world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
Just call me up
'Cause I will always be there
And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid (don't be afraid)
To let them show your true colors
True colors are beautiful (you're beautiful, oh)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh like a rainbow
Mmm mmm
