Topaz class

Welcome to Topaz Class, Year 3!


Our Topic this term is all about: Roald Dahl


We are a class of 30 splendiferous human bean children, 1 BFG Teacher Miss Bell and 3 Witching Teaching Assistants Sarah, Iona and Haleh!

Our Topic this term is all about:

Roald Dahl and what makes his books so ‘gloriumptious’.

For our wow start we held a Roald Dahl Day on 15th September to celebrate 101 years since Roald Dahl was born! It was wonderful to see everyone dressed up as Roald Dahl characters-what a creative class we have.

This half term we will be enjoying exploring different Roald Dahl texts, thinking about how he uses language and develops characters as well as developing our illustration skills inspired by Quentin Blake. We will also be stretching our geographical and scientific skills as well as doing plenty of problem solving and maths challenges.

Year 3 also sees the start of French lessons which will be taught by a visiting Teacher from the Parkside Federation on a Tuesday.

This half term PE will be on Wednesdays and Thursday. Outdoor PE is focused on ball handling skills and will be in school on a Thursday. Indoor PE is swimming, which will take place at The Abbey Pool. Please make sure your child has a swimming costume, towel, goggles and hat in school each Wednesday.

Your child also needs a named water bottle and a waterproof coat.


I look forward to working with and getting to know you all better. We will be holding our New to Year 3/Meet The Teacher session after school on Thursday 21st September. It would be great to see you there!
