Eastbury Community School

Year 3 - Glasgow

Welcome to Glasgow class! I am Mrs Khalique and I am one of your teachers. I will be in school on Mondays and Tuesdays and I am so excited about the year ahead! Some of the things I love to do include reading, cooking and being in nature. 

Autumn 1

week 1 

We had a very successful and exciting transition into Year 3. Have a look at some of the portraits that we created! 


We also visited the school library! 


week 2

In PE we are focussing on 'excellent gymnastics' (control and extension) with Mrs Khalique.


With Coach Josh, we are learning to play netball. 


For Music we are learning to 'read' Music and play the P Buzz!  



week 3


For maths this week, we have been learning about place value; hundreds, tens and ones. We will be building on this next week as we learn about how to use the column method to add three digit numbers.


week 4

Our big question this year in RE is How are symbols and sayings important in religion?  We listened to the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector and learned that it taught people about humility. We used this parable to create our own role play and performed to the class.


In PSHE we are learning about relationships and the significance of friendships. 


Week 5



This term we are learning about rocks.  This week our super science squad  were searching different rocks around our school and carefully observed them to classify them as metamorphic, sedimentary or igneous rocks.

Week 6

The children have been doing so well learning how to play the P Buzz- they have mastered their first song.



In English, we have started learning a new text; Kitty's naughty day which the children have really been enjoying learning! Look at us go! 



During our KS2 assembly, we celebrated the start of Black History Month by focusing on the popular Black British author- Malorie Blackman.  We have read Many of her books such as Pig Heart Boy, Operation Gadgetman and Ellie and the Cat.

Week 7

To end the unit on excellent gymnastics, the children created sequences using symmetrical and asymmetrical balances, remembering to demonstrate control and extension. Here are some examples!







In Maths this week we have been learning to subtract from three digit numbers with renaming tens and hundreds. Please ask the children to show you the methods that we have been learning in school.       


During story time, we read a book called Hair Like Mine by Latashia M. Perry.  This is a lovely rhyming book which celebrates diversity and what makes us unique and special.  We really enjoyed listening to it and talked about our own identities and what we thought about the book.       "I like this book because the girl's daddy helps her make different hairstyles and I like her hair."                             

 Autumn 2

Week 1


The children have started adapting the 'Kitty's naughty day' story to write their own! We will be publishing them next week. Have a listen to some great examples!






Week 2

 UK Parliment week!  



To observe UK Parliment week we discussed which of the two local area 'problems' we want to raise with our local council:

1. Litter on our streets

2. Road safety

We had a democratic vote for each student and member of staff. The children marked their vote on their ballot paper and went to the polling station to cast their vote. 


Star writers!


We have all really enjoyed writing stories about 'unruly' siblings! We published our stories and it was so difficult to choose who will be the new star writer... we ended up with THREE! Haiqa, Aahil and Takia! They published imaginative, creative stories that captured and entertained the reader.  

Week 3


To celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, we re-enacted the Hindu story of Rama and Sita and also learnt about why Sikhs observe Diwali ahead of our trip to the Gurdwara on Thursday.

We ended our afternoon by decorating and making diwali lanterns.  

We also visited the Gurdwara to learn more about Sikhism! We took off our shoes and covered our hair with a head covering before entering the Gurdwara. It was so interesting to see how Sikh people pray and to see the Guru Granth Sahib in real life! 

Children in need!

 The children dressed up in colourful pudsey clothes and bought in £1 to raise money for children in need. 

Week 4

World Children's day! 

We celebrated world children's day on the 20th November! The children learnt about the conventions on the rights of the child, and we became more familiar with the rights and the logos that represent them. We talked about the importance of knowing our own rights and also respecting the rights of others in our communities and all children globally. 

We also had a children's take over day where children took over as teachers and TA's. It was so much fun that we want to do it again, Mrs Khalique said we did such an amazing job that she might consider retiring soon!
