Year 3

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.

 Key Stage 2 Sports Day Friday 24th June 2016

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:


  • Dress up in Viking costume and learn about the part Viking settlers played in the history of Sherwood (the “Shire” wood) and the significance of the local and recently discovered Viking age assembly site – Thynghowe!
  • Join a resident grumpy Viking, Magnus Nolaf who will instruct you, as trainee Vikings, in the art of the shield wall to help defend against Saxon raiders!
  • Rotate around activities that use traditional techniques.  Use millstones to grind wheat into flour, spin our sheep wool into yarn using drop spindles, and make your own Norse inspired jewellery to take home.
  • Set off as Viking traders to collect the Danegeld, and as part of your journey, build your own dragon inspired shelters out in the wild woods to survive.

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!

Sports Relief 2016


A big congratulations to all the children who helped raise money for sports relief this year. Sports Relief is part of the Comic Relief Charity and raises money for worthy causes both within and outside of the UK.

For our fundraising activities we decided to do a sponsored mile. The children could run or walk for a mile around the school’s playground. Also, we had a sporty dress up day where all the children looked fantastic.


This year we raised an amazing £2223.50!


We would like to thank everyone for your continued support. We couldn’t have done it without you.

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.

Spring 2016

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:

  • The legend of the founding of Rome,
  • The Roman ruling system,
  • The expansion of the Roman Empire,
  • Romans as invaders and settlers.

Our Class Targets

Every half term every class decides upon a target. They have to work together to achieve their target 100 times. If they complete this they will have a reward afternoon. The reward is also decided by the class.


Mrs Mapxencar's class target: To line up quietly and walk in line sensibly.

Miss McIntyre and Miss Matthew's class target: T come in and out the classroom quietly.


Good luck to both classes smiley

Autumn 2015

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.

Festive Fun! Christmas Jumper Day!


Year 3

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!
