Allotment Visit - May 2022

Y3 had a brilliant time at the allotment! We weeded, dug over the flower beds and looked at some plants and seeds.  We all worked really hard and Mrs Jakeman gave us a biscuit each to say thank you! We thought the allotment was fascinating and wonderful!

Experience Christmas - December 2021

On Thursday 2nd December, Year 3 visited St Thomas' church to participate in 'Experience Christmas'. The children were split into six groups and completed a carousel of activities, all linked to the Christmas story. The stations were titled: The Preparation, The Announcement, The Journey, The Message and The Promise. Finally, the class came together to present Jesus with their gifts of peace, love, hope, bravery and respect. Check out all our busy learning.

The Amazing Egyptians - November 2021

Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been learning about the ancient Egyptians. First, the children learnt where this civilisation fits within the history timeline, discussing the terms BC and AD. Next, we learnt where Egypt is in the world, locating the River Nile and its capital city.  The children particularly enjoyed finding out about the daily lives of Egyptians and the different Pharaohs throughout this period. We have learnt about the process of mummification and have built our own pyramids in Numeracy. Check out our busy learning in this topic.

Let There Be Light - October 2021

Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been learning about the Science topic Light. First, the children recognised that we need light to see. Next, we learnt that light from the sun can be dangerous, therefore we must protect our eyes.  The children particularly enjoyed learning how light is reflected from surfaces and that shadows are formed when light is blocked by a solid object. Check out our busy learning in this topic.

Just Dance PE - October 2021

In PE we have been creating our own dance sequences linked to Just Dance. We used music to create imaginative movements and simple dances, and performed them in front of the rest of the class. Year 3 are thoroughly enjoying their dance lessons this half-term and are looking forward to their final performances.

Rule of Law - September 2021

This week Year 3 have been learning about the Rule of Law. The children discussed the differences between rules and laws. Later in the week Year 3 learnt about Moses' story and the ten commandments. Year 3 decided to create their own 10 laws to abide by. Check out our busy learning.
