Year 3 2018-19

A warm welcome to Year 3!

The Year 3 team (Mrs Coop, Mrs Teasdale, Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Carr) are delighted to welcome you to our class. We already have lots of exciting events planned, including celebrating Roald Dahl day and a visit to The Turnpike as part of the Leigh Canal Festival. There will lots of updates, photographs and information on this class page all year to help you feel involved in your child's learning and the Leigh St. Mary's school community.  Please feel free to come and see us with any questions or comments you have now and at any point during the year. Thank you! 

18.10.18 This week our gallery of 'pit prop art' was completed. The children were inspired by our visit to Astley pit and the results are amazing! We began by learning how to shade and tint with oil pastels and made a beautiful sunset background. Next we used line drawing to re-create the shapes of the pithead winding gear. Finally, we used black oil pastels to draw the silhouette of the mining equipment on the background. I'm sure you will agree - the results are stunning! Click the star for the full album...

28.9.18 We have had an amazing week talking about life down't pit! We have researched what life would have been like for a Victorian child worker in the mines, crawled under the tables to generate vocabulary in our writing like 'cramped' and 'despairing'. Adelaide and Lacey bought in great artefacts and fact files from home...We welcomed Eric in to class to talk about his experiences as a miner in the Atherton collieries - the children asked great questions and were fascinated by his answers. We were very surprised to find out he preferred his job in the mine to his job on the buses! Thank you Eric!
