Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Staff: Mrs J Hewitt, Miss K Hutchinson and Mrs S Wells

 

 

As part of out topic 'Who first lived in Britain?' the children in year 3 visited Creswell Crags to learn all about the Stone Age. They explored real Stone Age caves, learned how to survive in the Stone Age by building shelters and hunting reindeer and also created some Stone Age inspired art. What a fantastic day!

Red Nose Day Rhumba

As part of our Red Nose Day activities, the children in Year 3 joined the rest of the children (and staff) in the juniors on the playground for a group dance session. It was lots of fun!
We explored the amount of pollution in samples of water from in a park and near a busy road. We compared the reaction when a reagent (grape juice) was mixed with the samples. We then recorded our findings on an information poster. Thank you to Mrs Crowe for a fantastic week of Science.

We all had a fabulous time in Year 3 celebrating World Book Day. The children looked fantastic in their costumes and enjoyed going into the role of their book characters. Can you guess who is who? 

 

Chalk Rangoli Patterns and Elephant Collages

To kick start our topic about about Hinduism, we had an Indian Experience day. We were told lots of stories from the religion and shown how Hindu people pray.We also learned about the different Hindu gods and goddesses. In the afternoon we had a go at wearing some traditional Indian clothing and danced Bollywood style. It was lots of fun. What a fantastic day thoroughly enjoyed by all! 
After an exciting term all about Roald Dahl and his books, the children came to school dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl character. We had an exciting day of Roald Dahl themed activities including a maths competition and a story sharing session. Prior to the day, the children had been set a homework task to create their very own dream jars inspired by the BFG and so we wrote about their dreams in a creative writing session. Here are the fantastic dream jars and the children's costumes- didn't they look fabulous!
As part of our topic on the Mediterranean we visited Escabeche where we enjoyed trying some traditional Spanish foods.
