Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Year 3 enjoyed their very well-deserved end of year reward day! The theatre performance was excellent and so engaging with lots of catchy songs throughout! The children also made and decorated hats, ate popcorn and watched some of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and enjoyed playing games on the field.

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! As part of their DT project, Year 3 researched packaging and conducted market research to find out popular chocolate flavourings. They used this research to then design and make their own chocolates and the packaging for it. We think they did a superb job and would even give Mr Willy Wonka a run for his money!

Year 3 enjoyed drawing Mr Willy Wonka as inspired by Quentin Blake!

For our entry point activity for our new unit of work about chocolate, we became discerning taste-testers.  Without looking and only using our sense of smell and taste, we had to complete a series of challenges.  First of all, we had to guess which sample was milk, white or dark chocolate.  We then had to work out which chocolate was the cheaply priced, mid-range or expensive chocolate.  After this, we had to work out the cocoa percentage of the different samples.  Most of us were not keen on the chocolate with the 70%, 85% and 90% cocoa!  We also found out lots of facts about chocolate from the Golden Tickets and shared facts we already knew.  We are all really excited about this topic! 

Here is The Knowledge sheet for our Chocolate unit and below are photos of our entry point.

As part of the Stone Age topic, Year 3 created their own stone age necklace. The children researched the type of jewellery worn in the Stone Age then produced their own designs. They then selected their favourite design before modelling their beads out of clay. Finally, the children threaded their beads onto string before evaluating their final product.

Year 3 enjoyed using milk bottles to create planters for their Spider Plant babies!


As a year group bubble, they discussed the positive effect they were having on the environment by recycling and planting new life.


We are all very excited to see how big they grow over the coming months!


We are really excited to be welcoming you back to school. We have lots of fun and exciting learning planned and we can't wait to share your learning with your grown ups on here. 


Things are a little bit different but we will all help each other settle in.  Here are some helpful reminders.


* PE sessions are every day so please make sure you have suitable footwear and a coat as we will be outside in most weathers. 


* You must have a water bottle in school everyday.  We do not have water fountains to drink from.


* You may want to bring a snack to have during your morning break.


* Please keep your Reading Records at home and note down in them every time you read.  It would be great if your grown ups could write a short comment too.  We do expect you to read 5 times each week as a minimum and this is part of your homework.  We will send out a date when we would like your Reading Records to be returned to school so that we can write a teacher comment in there too.  We will also be keeping our own records of your reading with us in school. 


* When you have finished reading, please bring your book back to school where it will be popped into a box to 'rest' before it is put back onto the shelf.


* If your grown ups need to speak to Miss Barnes or Mrs Laws, please ask them to call the office and the office staff will pass on a message.  We will then call your grown ups back as soon as we are able to.

They can also email and the email will be forwarded to the class teacher.
