Spring 1

 

We've only been back for two weeks and what a lot we've done already! We've set ourselves some New Year's Resolutions- wonder who's still keeping to theirs!!

We've learnt all about the harmful UV rays from the Sun, how they can damage our bodies and how we can protect ourselves from them.

We have been working as a team to research about life in the Stone Age and have written a non-chronological report using some superb handwriting! Check out our display piece in the main entrance hall!

 

 

Christmas Party in Year 3!

 

 We had so much fun decorating our tables and eating our party food!

Then there was the entertainer: juggling with footballs, tennis rackets and bowling pins; doing amazing tricks with the diablo; playing pie face with the teachers!!!

What a fantastic way to finish off a very busy term for Year 3!

 

 

Autumn 2

Year 3 have been having lots of exciting lessons in the second half of the Autumn Term! 

 

Our English has been based on 'Orion and the Dark' by Emma Yarlett and we have done some superb pieces of writing so far!

In Topic lessons, we have been learning about WW1: how it started and what life was like for children during the war. We even wrote letters to 'our fathers' who had gone off to fight in the trenches in France.
