Year 3 overview


Welcome to Year 3 everyone!


As a class we discussed what rules we would like to follow in our classroom. Here is what we came up with:

  1. We will respect each other and any adults that we work with.
  2. We won't bully others. If we see someone being bullied, we must tell an adult or if we see someone being left out, we will ask them to join us.
  3. We will always be kind to each other.
  4. We will always put our hand up if we need to go to the toilet, to ask a question or to answer a question.
  5. We will not kick underneath the tables. We will keep our feet still and flat underneath the table. We will keep our hands and feet safe at all times.



Red Deer it has been a fantasic year and I would like to thank you all for your hard work! Well done and WOW!

Thank you also for the support I have received from all the parents in Red Deer across the year.

A huge thank you to our Pirate Captain and all the adults who gave up their time today to make our Pirate Day so excellent!

Well done m' hearties!  


Today we were Pirates!

Booty bags needed to be prepared...

Hit the deck!                                   At the wheel.
Hiding from One Eyed Jim and mermaids! Living dangerously.

Fingers in ears and humming loudly

stops the mermaids from enchanting you!

Making pockets for our loot. Biscuit making but not as we know it! All pirates need a flag to fly.


Before you go up the rigging you have to be able to throw.   Working together to avoid the stinky swamp. Reading flag messages.

Calling all Pirates!


Thursday 7th May is Pirate Day.


We are taking over the hall and sailing away with History off the Page.


To get into the spirit of the day dressing as a pirate would be exciting.  Nothing too elaborate is needed, a stripy t-shirt and baggy trousers will look very piratey.

Accessories might include: eye patch, cutlass, sash, hook etc.

We all have pirate hats in school but if you already have one at home please feel free to bring it in.




Red Deer and Red Squirrel went to Tropical Wings today.

We had encounters with wallabies, meerkats, parrots and butterflies!

There was lots to see and the opportunity for those of us who were

feeling adventurous to hold, touch and stroke some unusual animals.
