Thinking and learning today to help us all tomorrow.

Year 3 Oak

Children's attendance is really important!

At Trelai we would love our attendance to be 100%

However we do accept 95% at still being excellent!

90% -95% is still good...but could be better!

90% and under needs improving!


In class Oak our weekly attendance has been really poor lately. We have not had over 90% for a few weeks nowcool



Rory and Amari that have had 100% attendance. 

Keep it up guys!

It's cool to be in school! 

You Rock!

Croeso i Dosbarth 3

The class teacher is Mrs Broad.


In year 3 we love learning and have great fun!

We are learning and developing a positive growth mindset.

Since year 2 we are learning how to become even more independent in our learning whilst still enjoying working with our friends.


We learn Maths and English every day!

We follow Big Maths and Abacus and have now started using T4W for English.

T4W is so much fun! We talk it, talk it, talk it so we can write it, write it, write it!


Children try and beat their last ever score once a week when they complete a Big Maths Test! They are getting very competitive! 




Each term children access the LNF through an engaging, purposeful and fun topic. 

Our current topic is "Here come the Romans". The children have already learnt so much! They have discovered that Caerau has an old hillfort in which the Celts lived on thousands of years ago. They also learnt that in Trelai park their is a large mound of grass...However, buried underneath is an ancient Roman temple.


Later on this term we are hoping to go on a school trip to learn more about the Romans. 


Mrs Broad dressed up as a Roman this term and we asked her loads of questions about Roman times.

"It was like we really lived in Roman times"




Each half term we learn about a new topic in Welsh. We have weekly welsh lessons where we practice our sentence patterns, questions and answers. We do lots of acting and play lots of games. 

Our topics are

  • The Weather
  • Houses
  • On the Weekend
  • Pet Animals
  • Friends


As we learn each topic we learn how to extend our vocabulary and challenge our learning and understanding.


In year 3 we have Welsh books to complete our writing activities.

We have learnt and will learn how to write a diary entry, playscripts and posters in Welsh.

We also use our Maths skills in Welsh by carrying out data surveys!


We are becomming very clever you know!



We have P.E. once a week. Our P.E. day is a Tuesday, when it is our P.E. day we can our wear our P.E. kit to school...otherwise we should be in our smart school uniform!


Mrs Crockford teaches us P.E. as Mrs Broad has her PPA time.


Mrs Crockford is great at teaching us P.E.


In year 3 we learn

  • gymnastics
  • dance
  • athletics
  • fielding and striking games
  • and creative ball games where we invent our own rules and games.


We are taught science every week. We are becoming very good at investigating and carrying out fair tests. 

Each term we look at a new topic to ensure we are covering all the skills from the Science National Curriculum.

Autumn Term - Third Rock from the Sun

In this topic we learn about rocks, fossils and the earth.


Spring Term - Let's Play With Physics

In this topic we learn about forces, magnets and electricity.
