Welcome to Year 3 with Mrs Barrett, Mrs. Haffenden and Mrs. Summers.

Key Information

PE: Year 3 will have PE on Tuesday and Friday. Please wear full PE kit on these; ensure hair that can be tied up, is tied up; and earrings are not worn on these days. 

Homework: This is set on Monday and is due the following Monday. There will be spellings and times tables. The children should regularly read, and their reading records will also be checked on Mondays. 

In maths we have been learning about volume and capacity. We used containers and water to explore these concepts outside. We learnt that the volume refers to the specific amount of liquid in a container where as capacity is the maximum amount of liquid a container can hold when full.

In Art, we have been learning techniques to shade in different ways to create light and dark.  We practised first and then used our skills to shade our Iron Age Roundhouses.

In Gymnastics we have been learning a routine made of different moves.  We learnt to forward roll and cartwheel and hold balances.  We made sure that we transitioned smoothly from one movement to the next.

This term, Year 3 have been enjoying the great outdoors at Forest School. They have used a 'dragon sneezer' to make fire and made bird feeders.  In line with our Iron Age topic, the children made spears and axes! In our last session, the children enjoyed toasting marshmallows over the fire to make s'mores. They were delicious!

Our Project this term is the STONE AGE!

Keep an eye out for updates!

Year 3 had a Stone Age Day! We had so much fun!

We Made Nettle dough balls and garlic butter! The Stone Age people would have used Nettles in their cooking, so we gave it a go! 

If you want to adapt the recipe without the nettles - change the 1 Tsp of Nettle Powder for another Tsp of flour. 

Our Fourth week, we made smoothies. We were so brave and tried them and ended up loving it!

Our Third week, we made Mango and Banana Cheesecake!

In our second cooking session, we made Tuna Pate!

In our first cooking session, we made Potato, Pea and Mint Salad

Class 3 did our Class Assembly! We were amazing! Here are our slides! We have learnt so much! 

Year 3 explored the wild and the importance of shelters last term! We used our Forest school are and built shelters from materials we could find!

Our first song as a class: Home Is Where The Heart Is

We also played along on glockenspiels!
