A BIG WELCOME FROM ALL OF US TO YOU!
We can't wait for you to make your mark in year 3! Like the rest of the school, we have some amazing work planned on the theme of COLOUR. After that, our topic will be The Stone Age to the Iron Age.
We really can't wait to have a new beginning with you all.
Please take a look at our Stone Age to Iron Age knowledge Organiser to find out what we will be learning.
Our WOW Day in Year 3!
We had a fantastic day and fortunately the weather was very kind to us! In the morning, we were archaeologists and we unearthed a variety of bones which we sketched and described. We also learnt about cave paintings from around the world. In the afternoon, we pretended to live in the Stone Age and recreate our own cave drawings … under our desks! We finished our day by combining a bit of physical activity alongside team work to find out even more about cave paintings. Here are a few highlights!
Design and Technology
The children have been exploring how to make sliders and levers. All in preparation for designing their own...watch this space!
The Day the Crayons Quit!
After designing their own crayon the children wrote Duncan a letter. The children recorded their letters, listen to a few that were chosen for the best voice and expression!

Diary check day is…Tuesday
We will be checking all diaries each Tuesday.
This means we will be counting your reads from the previous Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Snuggle up with a book.
We hope that children in Year 3 will do lots of reading at home so that they may complete their rainbow challenge. Some children will be bringing home more than one book, depending on the colour and its length. Children can exchange their books any day of the week.
Returned books will be stored for 3 days before being returned to the reading shelves.
Our Memories to treasure from
We all had so much fun creating our magnetic fish games today. All the children were really engaged and loved the process of making, playing and evaluating!
We have really enjoyed our Shakespeare week. The play we have focussed on was 'The Merchant of Venice' here is a few photos from our brilliant day of drama!
Do you like experimenting? Are you keen to find out how things work? Do you like carrying out investigations?
If so, you'll love our next topic...
Coming soon to Year 3
The topic for this Half Term is going to be 'What Makes Britain Great'. We are going to be learning about the 4 different countries of the UK, their traditions and famous landmarks. We will shortly be sending home an exciting homework project in which all the children will be given a city from the UK to research. We will then collect all of them in and create a year group book about cities in Great Britain.
What an awesome parent workshop we had this week. We created some great volcanoes and then made them erupt. Here are some pictures.

What a Wonderful Wow day we have had. We discovered lots of artifacts on the Trim trail this morning which we brought inside to take a closer look! We think they might be from the Stone Age! Here are some pictures of us examining these interesting artifacts.
