Year 3

Congratulations to our new School Councillors. Both girls are super efficient and are doing an excellent job!


Welcome to Year 3


We would like to share some of the exciting things we have been learning about.

Tropical Rainforests

As our topic, we have been finding out lots of facts about the tropical rainforests around the world. We can tell you why it's always hot and rainy there, and we could tell you some facts about some of the most deadliest creatures in the world that live there! Did you know, there is a frog that lives in the rainforest and even though it's beautifully coloured and only the size of your thumb, it could kill up to 20 people? Amazing!


We are looking forward to experiencing the rainforest climate when we visit Tropical World on our class trip. Let's hope there are no strange looking frogs lurking amongst the trees...

NSPCC Dance-a-thon


We had a wonderful time participating in the school Dance-a-thon to help raise money for the NSPCC. Thank you to everyone who sponsored us and supported us with this. We helped the school to raise £1,954.48! BRILLIANT!

Well done to everyone in Y3 who ran for School Councillor. Our new Councillors are looking forward to representing the class and getting involved in school council business!

The Romans


Our topic for this term is The Romans, and already the children have been busy preparing their Roman shields for homework! Take a look at these fine specimens...

...and other brilliant examples of homework!



In music lessons, the whole class is learning how to play the recorder.


We are developing our coordination and dynamic balance skills in PE.



Book Sharing Day


Everyone in school was asked to bring in their favourite book, or a book they had received as a Christmas present, and to share it with someone else. We had a reading afternoon where the children were mixed into different classes and their shared reading could begin!

Autumn Term

Our main topic this term is ancient Egypt. We have been so impressed with your wonderful pieces of homework to support this topic. Here are a few examples:

'Mummy Day'!


As part of our Ancient Egypt topic, we learnt about the mummification process and decided to have a go at the wrapping stage!



Throughout this term, we have been studying animals, including humans. We have looked at nutrition and the essential food groups, and we have learnt the names of some parts of the body.

Have a look at some of the things the children have been doing below....

Year 3 had lots of fun making each other into mummies!
