Welcome to Year 3 (September 2020) . The children have all settled in fantastically and have enjoyed seeing all  of their friends after such a long time . 

We are incredibly proud of how amazing Year 3 have adapted to the new routines in school. They are washing their hands regularly, using their own resources and understand the importance of 'catch it, bin it , kill it'.

Our theme is Meet the Flintstones ( The Stone Age ) .


Watch this Space for learning updates. Looking forward to a great year with you all .

Merry Christmas to all of Year 3

The children were looking through letters to point out key points such as facts, key points, opinion and questions.

Year 3 used the laptops to research the history of famous  earthquakes .

Where did it happen ?

When did it happen ?

What magnitude was it ?


The children have been thinking about what colours we see around during Autumn time. After we had the opportunity to mix paints to make all the different colours . 
Here are our final pictures .

Today Year 3 had a  discussion about why we celebrate Remembrance Day and why we have  a 2 minute silence . 

The children all worked together to make large Poppies to show their mark of respect . 

Year 3 have been very busy in Literacy writing instructions about having a good growth mindset .

We talked about what the problem was and how we could approach it in different ways.

Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3 have had an amazing day wearing yellow to show our awareness of Mental Health Day. We had a class discussion about our emotions and worries which we can have an effect on our mental health. We have learnt it's good to talk about how we feel to either our friends or adults at home and in school.     

Today in PHSE  we talked about taking pride in what we do , we discussed times we have felt proud and why it made us feel that way .

We then all wrote down on 'Gold Medals'times when we have felt proud .  The children came up with lots of different ways they have felt proud . 

we listened to calming sounds from the Amazon Rain Forrest  and talked about how it made us feel .

Today Year 3 carried out a scientific investigation to see if people with longer legs jumped further than people with shorter legs. They lined up from tallest to shortest . They then all had  a turn to turn to jump and we measured to see how far each child jumped . 

Our results found some children with shorter legs jumped further .

Today Year 3 enjoyed using the laptops and Ipads to research different types of UK settlements . They used Google as their  main search engine.
