Friday 14th January

This week, Year 3 had their first PE lesson with Mrs O'Hare and we got to have a go at playing tag rugby! We practised grabbing tags off other players and got to play some fun invasion games. We can't wait for next week!

Friday 17th December

This week, Year 3 celebrated their class liturgy, all around the theme of Joy. We shared baubles we had made about what makes us happy and ideas for how we could share our happiness with other people. We were especially lucky to be able to share our hard work with our parents and carers who came to watch.  

Friday 10th December

This week, Year 3 got to go on a Christmas Trail at Hazel Grove Baptist Church and it was AMAZING! We got to travel through the settings of the Christmas story and at the end, we saw Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. It was a great day out and it certainly helped us to get in the Christmas spirit!

Friday 3rd December

This term in computing, Year 3 have been working hard to create their own animation. We have designed our own characters and stories and then coded all the action on Scratch! Click on some of the links below to see the finished products!

Friday 26th November

This week, we have been learning about Road Safety and The Green Cross Code. We talked about what we could do to be a safe pedestrian on the streets and how we could be a good passenger in a car. We made posters to help share our message with others.

Friday 19th November

This week was anti-bullying week. In Year 3, we learnt about gender stereotype bullying, where people get told that they cannot do things simply because they are a girl or a boy. We created pieces of drama based on this and presented them to the class. 

Friday 12th November

This week was National Maths Week. To celebrate, Year 3 had a go at completing an escape room where we had to work as a team to complete maths problems to try and work out the combination to a locked door. The questions were quite hard, but by working together, we managed to crack the code! 

Friday 5th November

As part of our guided reading work, we have been studying 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by Roald Dahl. Today, the children drew some fantastic drawings of Mr Fox, labelling how they thought he might have felt at the end of chapter 8. 

Friday 22nd October

This week as part of our learning about Black History Month, the children studied Martin Luther King Jr. We learnt about his life and the part he played in the Civil Rights Movement in America. We created a timeline, a fact file and wrote our own versions of his famous 'I have a dream' speech. 

Friday 15th October

Today is Global Handwashing Day! To celebrate, Year 3 discussed why it is important to wash our hands and when we should wash our hands. We then designed our own soap bottles with our best tips for super handwashing!

Friday 8th October

This Thursday was National Poetry Day! To celebrate, Year 3 had a go at creating their own poems, all surrounding the theme of 'choices'. We then practiced our poetry reading, as we performed our pieces to the class.

Friday 1st October

This week, as part of our celebration of European Day of Languages, the children had a German Lesson with Mr Webb and then learnt a range of greetings in French, Spanish and Italian! We then had a look at the Greek alphabet and decorated our names in Greek. 

Friday 24th September

This week as part of our computing topic- 'We are Programmers', we watched a range of animations on Scratch. We then  discussed what made these animations good, and we can't wait to start animating our own short films!

Friday 17th September 2021

This week the children have produced some fantastic RE work. They have written beautiful prayers to thank God for their families, as well as coming up with a wide variety of questions for us to ask Father Peter!
