Welcome to Class 3LZ!smiley


Mrs Lynch teaches 3LZ on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Mrs Zaim teaches the class every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If you need to speak to either of us, please catch us at the end of the day or speak to the school office to make an appointment. We are here and always happy to help. In Year 3, we are very lucky to have Mrs Murawski supporting both the classes throughout the week.


New IPC topic, Temples, Tombs and Treasures (Spring Term)

This term we are learning all about Ancient Egypt in our History based topic.  We have already had great fun during our entry point with some tomb raiding and looking at different artefacts. We will be creating some beautiful 3D art work using Tutankhamun's death mask for inspiration and exploring Egyptian achievements. 


What exciting activities we have tackled so far?

There are so many to mention, but here are a few highlights....

  • built pyramid structures using marshmallows and dried spaghetti!
  • Learned the story of Howard Carter's discovery of King Tut's tomb
  • Acted out and retold this amazing historical story!
  • Written our own adventure stories
  • developed our measuring skills by making Ancient Egyptian flatbreads

Autumn Term's Topic: 'Gateways to the World'


 In 3LZ, we have been busy learning about our new IPC topic, 'Gateways to the World.' On Friday 23rd September, 3LZ visited Manchester Airport, providing a direct and 'hands-on' learning experience of our topic focus. This activity-packed full day visit gave the children the opportunity to:

  • visit Runway Park, the hub of Manchester Airport
  • develop an understanding of the many different jobs and their corresponding roles  around the airport
  • pretend to be the pilot in the cockpit!
  • ask their own questions to airport staff, extending learning and insight into our topic
  • plus many more interesting activities!


Watch this space for further news on our topic discoveries...


What an exciting start to the new school year! We have been busy bees in 3LZ, developing our creative writing skills in English through our current unit, Stories with Familiar Settings. We are focusing on the text, Gorilla by Anthony Browne to hone our skills here. The pupils have responded so positively to this magical story, noting the range of familiar settings used while discussing the unreal elements that appear throughout.



Some key information for pupils, parents and carers about the school week


  • PE will now take place on Thursdays. Please ensure all PE kits are in school and any ear studs are removed on this day, for Health and Safety reasons. Please view our school policy regarding this. We shall also be undertaking Maths of Day, which the children love! Fun, practical activities bringing together the world of mathematics with physical activity!


  • Reading books and reading log books will be sent home daily. To develop independence in our Year 3 learners, we have been giving the pupils the responsibility of taking out their own reading log books from their book bags. During the day, small groups of those pupils who need to change their book will be supported to do so by a Teaching Assistant. All we ask is that each child reads a small number of pages each day and that an adult signs their reading log book on a daily basis.


  • Home Learning will be sent home each Friday and should be returned to class by the following Wednesday. This will consist of a piece of English and Mathematics. Please note, the children are asked to remove their own homework from their book bags to submit in class. We know you can do this!
