Welcome to the Summer Term


In our final week, Year 3 have spent a lot of time learning outside. These photos show a magic number square where the lines each need to add up to 15. 

We learnt to tell the tell with our bodies!


Year 3 have made some beautiful mosaics! 


To end our topic all about Roman Britain, children decided they wanted to work in small groups to share their knowledge Roman Britain. They used the focus image to help them.


We have been very lucky this half term to have some tennis coaching. Mrs Thompson learnt some new skills too!

Healthy Week

We received a medal for completing the Brownlee Challenge.

Year 3 took part in the 'Golden Mile' to keep fit and active!


This term, in Geography, we have focused on our local area, Adel. There is a proposed housing development called Eastmoor. In drama, we took part in conscience alley where children gave pros and cons of the proposed building work.


We have been on a number of different walks this half term taking part in lots of different fieldwork activities. On one our walks, we visited the site of the proposed new housing development. From a history point of view, we visited a Roman spring and an aqueduct!

Welcome to the Spring Term

I have been extremely proud of my class this term and they have produced some incredible pieces of writing. They wrote recounts as journalists discovering an Ancient Egyptian tomb and also write a dilemma story whilst being transported back in time to Ancient Egypt.

Year 3 have stepped up yet again and completed some incredible work this term. Our unit has focused on length and perimeter. Here, they have been given problem solving activities to complete converting measures (metres, centimetres and millimetres)

Children used different manipulatives to find 'greater than' and 'less than'

Year 3 have used clues from different sources to find out about different Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.

Children have had fun this week revisiting previous knowledge and finding the different continents of the world!

It is very important to look after our wellbeing and practice mindfulness!

In Geography, children have been looking at countries near the equator!

Look at their Ancient Egyptian death masks!

During Science Week, Year 3 made foil boats to test, 'How many coins does it take to sink a boat?'

Year 3 learnt about the process of mummification through drama and thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Welcome Autumn 2

Year 3 have been identifying key features of non-chronological reports

Children used the Ipads to identify landmarks linked to the Stone Age.

We have started to use our dictionary skills to help us find the correct spelling and definitions.

In music, we've experimented with body percussion!

Year 3 are really improving their editing skills!

Year 3 are busy practicing their weaving skills. Their inspiration has been taken from the artist Tammy Kanat.

Year 3 have been investigating Amesbury Archer's grave. They were archaeologists and then had to write a diary entry.

Children learnt the difference between a physical and human feature. They then used the Ipads to find where they were in England and locate the region.

Children are using their textile skills to make a purse. They're using different types of threading to personalise their purses.

Year 3 used drama to show significant a hill fort was for Iron Age people. Children know that people used hillforts for protection, meetings and gatherings with druids, battles and many other reasons.

In REAL P.E, children had to work together and work in unison to perfect a race with three legs! They had to march, walk, use high knees and even walk backwards. They had a great time!

Look at our beautiful weaving!

This term, we're going to learning all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age.  We will be using an enquiry question to help us learn as much as we can.


Would you have preferred to have lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age?

Music Appraisal - To celebrate Black History Month, we listened and danced to the song, 'Jerusalema'. We discussed how the song made us feel and thoughts of words to describe our mood. We even played the song when children left school to meet their parents so they could discuss their learning.

Stone Age story planning and writing

Take a look at Year 3's fantastic collages inspired by Stone Age fires!

Geography - Year 3 are recapping on naming the countries of the UK, capital cities and the surrounding seas. We decided to do this by using the nature conservation area and using natural objects, we made the UK! This really helped them visualise the map of the British Isles!

Year 3 have been using different sources to find out what life was like for hunter-gatherers and farmers in the Stone Age.

Year 3 begun their Stone Age topic but using toilet paper (yes, toilet paper) to understand just how long ago Stone Age people came to Britain. This really helped them to understand just how ago it really was!

Children have been using sticks to count forwards and backwards in the Nature Conversation Area!

Active Learning - Mrs Thompson shouted out either and adjective or noun and children had to jump either to the left or right to show their understanding of different word classes.

It has been a busy week for Year 3!

Year 3 spent time in the Nature Conservation Area collecting sticks and other natural objects to spell their name. They really enjoyed this activity!

Computing - Year 3 tested out Scratch Junior to practise their coding skills!

Year 3 have been using different manipulatives to represent two and three-digit numbers. They did so well and even compared three-digit numbers using < and >.

Year 3 have been recapping on nouns and adjectives. They sorted the words into the correct columns and then went outside to play an active word class game.
