Welcome to Year 3
Hello and welcome to Year 3.
Year 3 is an exciting time for everyone as the journey through Key Stage 2 begins and the children really develop the skills of independent learning. We will, of course, be having lots of fun along the way.
Throughout the year we will be exploring many exciting, engaging and interesting cross-curricular topics which include: ‘Me, Myself and I', ‘It's All Greek to ME!’, ‘Extreme Earth’, ‘Stone Age Boy’, ‘Roots and Shoots’, and ‘Marvellous Mixtures’.
Some of the topics will have a Creative Homework project linked to them, giving the children the opportunity to showcase their interests, strengths and talents.
Regular reading at home, using the Bug Club resources alongside 'real' books will reinforce the skills developed at school in order to ensure that children enjoy and understand the texts that they read.
Please ensure PE kits are in school all week. During the Spring term we enjoy getting active in our swimming lessons.
Mr O'Brien, Mrs Hatton and Mrs Haywood and the children promise to work hard. So that we are able to be the best we can be!
Keep checking out our page to see what we get up to!

The Great Greek Bake Off!
Mrs Hatton and Mrs Haywood had the opportunity to act as 'Bake Off' Judges today as the children in Year 3 practised their culinary skills. The children baked pitta bread and then presented their dishes for judging by adding other Greek treats like tzatziki, olives, chickpeas, chopped carrots, peppers and cucumber....
Gods and Mortals
We thoroughly enjoyed our topic launch. We experienced a full Spartan training session with 'Warrior Haywood' and learned the Greek alphabet with 'Philosopher O'Brien'.
KS2 Arts Award Discover
The children in Key Stage 2 really enjoyed meeting "Sian" our Artist for the day. They completed a variety of activities, including: analysing art around the school, questioning an artist and finally creating their own fabulous piece of artwork. What a great day! Thanks Sian.
The World Came to Our Place Today
Year 3 have had a whistle-stop around the world trip with George, Flora and Grandpa! By investigating the contents of Mrs Hatton's shopping basket they have learnt a lot about different foods and where they have come from around the world. They were amazed to find just how far some...
You’ve Got Mail!
We thoroughly enjoyed accepting Fairy Godmother's request for help. We have come up with lots of advice to send to the inhabitants of the enchanted woods.
