Hello! Welcome to Year 3!
HOMEWORK UPDATE: We now have an email address for the children to email their electronic homework to their class teachers. Please make sure the email contains the child’s name and the name of their class teacher.
An enormous well done to all the children who took part in this year’s production of Alice. All the cast performed brilliantly, they all worked extremely hard to learn their lines and songs. The choir sounded wonderful throughout the performances and the back stage crew helped to organise the show. Last but not least, a big thank you to the audiences who joined in with the performances as well. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part and we are all very proud of them.

Summer Term 2016
Welcome back! We hope you have had a super Easter holiday.
There are lots of exciting things to look forward to this term. Our main topic, will be the Vikings. This will also be the focus of our visit on Friday 13th May to Perlethorpe. Whilst there you will get to:
There are lots of other exciting topics coming up too, have a look at our Y3 summer term overview to see what else we have got coming up!
On Wednesday, we jumped back in time to the Roman era to enjoy our Roman Day! The children made a fantastic effort with their costumes, and they enjoyed a brilliant day learning all about Roman life and looking at some Roman artefacts with our Roman expert Peter Hammond.
Our new topic for this term is The Romans. As part of this topic, we will be having an archaeologist coming into school on Wednesday 10th February for our Roman day. We ask that your child come to school on this day dressed as a Roman to make the day as authentic an experience as possible. Please see your child’s class teacher if you have any queries or questions about this day. During this topic, some of the things your child will learn about include:
We have had a very busy start to the Autumn term, learning about volcanoes and earthquakes during our disasters topic. Things got particularly messy when we were making our own paper mache volcanoes! The children produced some fantastic pieces of homework linked to our topic too.
So far, this half term we have celebrated the festival of Diwali during our Diwali day. The children had the opportunity to have henna design drawn onto their hands, which they were particularly excited about. A special thank you to Nishaan’s mum for coming in to help us with this. There was also an opportunity for the children to taste some authentic Indian food, the samosas and tuj were particularly popular.
Take a Bow!
The children of Key Stage 2 have been busy singing songs, making costumes and learning lines ready for our Christmas production the ‘Children of the World’. This year, the children have been learning about Christmas traditions from all across the world! We were taken on a journey of Christmas by some very interesting angels.
Have a look through our pictures to see if you can guess which country we were!
