Morpurgo Class (Yr 3)

Welcome to Morpurgo Class!

Mrs Robinson and Miss Carroll

Supported by Mrs Graham


The children in Morpurgo Class are a fantastic, hardworking team. 


Topic News:

Our topics this term are 'Let's Plant It! and 'Bright Sparks'.  We launched into our learning through visiting Susan's Farm at Houghton, this formed our plants entry point (see photographs above).  Further information about our topic learning can be found on this terms newsletter or IPC letter (please see below).


Learning Goals:

This term our maths learning goals based upon solving number and place value problems.  In writing we are focusing on writing chunks or paragraphs, which include linked sentences.  For reading we are targeting reading, exception words.  These word lists are stuck in children's home/academy diary for use at home and school. 



We will continue to promote a love of reading in school and our class book this term is The Demon Dentist by David Walliams.  As a school we aim for all children to read at home to an adult five times a week. Thank you for supporting your child in achieving this. Dojo points are awarded each week to children who have read regularly.

Year 3 have shown how creative they are and have spent a lot of time preparing their designs at home for our Easter competition. Everyone that has entered will be rewarded a Dojo point for being resilient. It is clear Year 3 have kept going until they have been successful with their final design. Well done Class Morpurgo!


Year 3 have really enjoyed studying the book, Escape from Pompeii By Christina Balti.

They have produced some fantastic writing which we are delighted to share with you.

All pupils will be bringing their stories home as part of their homework.

We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we loved writing them!

Well done Year 3!

Year 3 really enjoyed World Book Day 2017

To celebrate world book day we all dressed up as a character from a book, including Miss Carroll who was Gangsta Granny.

We had a character parade so the children could explain who they were. They also recited a line from the book and some children performed dramas. The class enjoyed listening to a story read by Mrs Roberts. They also enjoyed sharing stories with the nursery and reception classes.
