Summer 1: Topic

Our topic for this half term is 'Enter the Stone Age'! Please see the curriculum page to have a look at our parent plan to see what we will be looking at during our topic. We will be looking at how Stone Age life differs to our lives today, and how difficult we would find it to go back in time and live in a Stone Age community. Or writing will be based around instructions. We will be basing this on a book called 'How to wash a woolly mammoth'.

Please keep checking our blog to keep up to date with our topic and exciting work!


Spring 1: Topic

We will be looking at Ancient Egyptian life, their culture and comparing this to our modern day life. We will be researching the life of King Tutankhamun and writing a newspaper report describing the discovery of his tomb. Keep checking the blog below for updates on our topic and photographs of our wonderful work!

Class assembly

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

Year 3 have been working very hard to put together a (very impressive) class assembly to showcase all the work we have done in our Egyptians topic so far! If you would like to attend, our assembly will be held on Tuesday 26th March at 9:10, and will last approximately half an hour. You will also be lucky enough to see some of the creations the children have made over the topic, and the beautiful hearts created just before Christmas. We are so proud of these. 

We have been very busy researching lots of Ancient Egyptian facts to help us make a leaflet on the ancient civilisation. We want to persuade people to visit ancient Egypt, so have been working hard on describing the sights of Egypt and collecting enticing information. In maths, we have been learning how to divide numbers and have been practising this. We know that diving means sharing between equal groups, and that we can use our times table knowledge to help us with this.

Excitingly, this week we sent out our class trip letter! the children were so excited to learn we are heading for the Alhambra Theatre to watch Awful Egyptians, a production by the TV stars of Horrible Histories. Thank you to those of you who have already sent your permission slips back. It is very important we receive these slips by the end of April.

Have a wonderful week!

Miss B and Mrs W

And they lived happily ever after... hold on, its a different story!

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

We have had a wonderful week in year 3 and have thoroughly enjoyed beginning a new book in our literacy lessons. We were all very excited to discover the name of our story after uncovering many clues! We have made storyboards of the story, and next week we will be writing a retell using adverbs.

In maths, we have been multiplying hundreds by ones, and have practised explaining our knowledge to our partners. We have also looked at arrays and used them to help us calculate the answers to multiplications.

See you next week for our final week of this half term! It has been a month of many birthdays so far, and that doesn't stop this week!

We hope you have had a lovely weekend!

Happy Hawthorn and Jolly Juniper

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week has been a brilliant (if a little poorly) week at school. All the children in Hawthorn class were given headteacher's award for their efforts in their work this week- well done! They have worked so hard with their writing and maths, and are wonderfully caring. They should be proud.

This week, we have been continuing to write our Howard Carter newspaper reports. The children have been exploring how to start their sentences in different ways and how to make their writing more interesting. In maths, we have started to focus on the column method for multiplication, which all the children have grasped amazingly! We hope they impress you with their knowledge in their homework this week!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend parents evening on Tuesday and Thursday. It is always lovely to talk to parents and keep you updated on your child's progress.

See you after a relaxing weekend!

Miss B and Mrs W
