Welcome to St. Philip’s Primary

Year 3G


Welcome to Year 3G! I am Mr Greenhalgh and I am both excited and honoured to be your class teacher. We are very fortunate to have Mrs Whiteley working with us as well. 

Whose footprints came first?

Welcome back Y3G! In Spring Term 1 we turn our attention back to being historians and we are going to be finding out lots of information and fascinating facts about The Stone Age. What will we find out?

There is learning afoot...Let's get started!

BLOG (2017-2018)

Autumn Term 2

Y3G you should all be very proud of your fantastic work and achievements throughout Autumn Term 2. In English, you have created fantastic character descriptions based on many different texts (my favourite was Voices in the Park!). Furthermore, I have been very impressed with your use of direct speech in your independent writing. In maths, there is not a pair of 3-digit numbers that you cannot total or find the difference between. Indeed, you have all grown in confidence when using the 'column method' to help you to complete these types of calculations. Superb work Y3G!

Autumn Term 1

Y3G you have certainly been very busy throughout Autumn Term 1. In English, you have researched and produced information texts about a wide range of animals. Next, we are going to turn your pieces of writing into a nature documentary! Don't even get me started on how impressed I have been with the complex sentences that you have all been generating in your writing. In maths, you have become the MASTERS of place value. Indeed, there is not a single 3-digit number that you cannot partition in more than one way. As musicians you have worked very hard to perfect your singing voices, whilst in art you have designed fantastic Greek pots. What a class of SUPERSTARS you all are!



Science: FORCES AND MAGNETS. Do opposites attract?

Computing: DATA HANDLING. Where can I shop?



accident, accidentally, century, February,

How confidently can you spell these words Y3G?
