Year 3




HEALTHY WEEK - w/c 24th June 2019

It has been Healthy week in school this week.  In Year 3 we have been very busy.  We started the week off with discovery kitchen - learning about cooking and tasting different foods.  We have designed our own healthy posters to enter into a competition.  We also took part in making smoothies in a healthy way by riding on a 'smoothie bike'.
On Thursday we had fantastic weather for our sports day which was a huge success!  We then ended our week off with a fencing lesson,  all the children took part and really enjoyed it!

Year 3 History Van - 5th June 2019

The children were very lucky to have a visit from a history van to talk to them about Stone age.  The children went back in time to take part in lots of stone age jobs!

World Book Day - 7th March 2019

Year 3's celebrated World Book Day in style by dressing up in some fantastic costumes of characters from their favourite books!

Year 3 Parents' session

This half term parents joined their child during an English lesson.  They were learning how to write instructions on making a banana split.  Everyone had loads of fun and the banana splits tasted fabulous!

We sent a selection of our crazy creature fact files to Sir David Attenborough.  We were amazed when we received this!

Year 3 have been learning how to create their own crazy creature fact files.  We hope you enjoy them!

English w/c 17th September 2018

posted 21 Sep 2018, 07:13 by T Scott

In English this week, we spotted some mysterious paw prints outside and read a newspaper article about wolf sightings!  We read a story about the sheep and the wolf, and we learnt to retell it using actions.  We have also drawn story maps and written definitions for new words.  What a busy week!

In Maths this week we have been learning to derive new facts from number bonds by looking at:
  • Inverse               -  6 + 7 = 13,  13 - 7 = 6
  • Commutativity   -  6 + 7 = 13,  7 + 6 = 13
  • Add ten              -  16 + 7 = 23
  • Multiples of ten  -  6 + 7 = 13,  60 + 70 = 130
  • One more           -  6 + 7 = 13,  7 + 7 = 14
  • One less             -  6 + 7 = 13,  5 + 7 = 12

Y3 to Y4 Transition Days

posted 6 Jul 2018, 08:52 by   [ updated 6 Jul 2018, 09:00 ]

The Y3s have been hard at work, impressing their new Y4 teachers with their great attitudes to learning.  Children across the school have spent three days of transition getting used to their new classrooms and routines.  Mrs Shaw, Miss Laycock and Mr Janiszewski have all been impressed with the exceptional attitudes of the children and are as excited as the children for Y4 to begin fully in September.
