  • This week in Year 3

    Published 24/01/22, by Andy Mari

    What an exciting week we have had in Year 3! 

    In science, we became explorers and went on a walk around our school grounds to identify different rock types. We then discussed their properties and matched these to their purpose. Can you ask your child, “What properties does slate have and why would it be good as a roof tile?” 

    In English, we independently wrote our own diary entries and have started to delve into the alternative fairy tale for ‘The Three Little Pigs’. Can you ask your child, “Why was the Big Bad Wolf misunderstood?”  

    In maths, we finished our unit on money and are now looking at units of measure. Specifically focusing on length, volume and mass. Can you ask your child, “How many centimetres are there in 3 metres?”  

    In history, we hot seated a Roman, Celt and Boudicca to ask questions to find out more about their different viewpoints.  

    Well done for another fantastic week!

  • New Year - New Investigations

    Published 12/01/22, by Cressida Whitfield

    We are delighted with the start that Year 3 have made to the new term. We've started to find out about the Romans and how they conquered Britain. Ask your child, "What is the difference between a settler and invader?"

    Also, we have begun our exciting science unit all about rocks and soil. We have handled lots of different types of rock and discovered how different their properties can be. Ask your child, "What rocks can you find on your way to school and what properties do they have?"

    In English, we are exploring the features of a diary and will be writing our own diary entries based on the Romans.

    Well done for a fantastic start!

  • The Blue Umbrella in Year 4

    Published 17/11/21, by Andy Mari

    This week Year 3 have started an exciting new unit in Literacy called 'The Blue Umbrella'. It is set in the rainy streets of New York City. The children worked in groups to create a soundscape using instruments, their body and voices. They generated some incredible vocabulary to support them in their writing. 

    Last week, Y3 also went on a local walk and used maps to identify human and physical features in their environment. Some children followed the route on their map, whilst others drew the route as they went. Behaviour was exceptional and everyone had a great time using lots of geographical skills! The children also loved playing at the park!!

  • Year 3 European Day

    Published 25/06/21, by Andy Mari

    On Wednesday 24th June, Year 3 had a European day! This day involved the children visiting different European countries and experience native clothing, food and games. We started off our afternoon by learning a traditional Spanish dance called Flamenco dancing. We had to clap and stamp with the rhythm. We then visited different countries. We had homemade Albanian Pite, which is a pastry tart with cheese and onions. We also tried a homemade Albanian cake too! In Poland, we sampled some sausages, pickles and pretzel sticks. We tried various foods from all over Europe such as, croissants, madeleines, cheese, parma ham, chorizo, biscotti, crackers, Welsh cakes, cheese pretzels, and beef stroganoff! Along with the food, we also learned different facts about these countries. To finish off the day, we all watched the England Euro 2020 highlights. We cheered for England and sang it's coming home! We discussed what the Euros were and how important it is to each country and how we celebrate different countries coming together for football. 

    We all had a fabulous day and we learned lots! A huge thank you to all parents who donated food and objects to help with our day. We could not have done it without you!

  • Money, Money, Money!

    Published 13/06/21, by Andy Mari

    In Maths this week, Year 3 have been learning all about money. We started off our topic by becoming familiar with the different coins and different ways we can make the same amounts. We continued and developed our learning throughout the week, where we started to convert pounds to pence. We ended the week by adding amounts of money without regrouping. This tested our mental addition and our resilience. We used the money to help us understand the concept more.
