Welcome to Year 3 Meeting
Our PE days are Monday (outdoor) and Tuesday (indoor).
Please tie long hair back and remove any jewellery.
We advise that PE kits are brought into school at the start of each term and then sent home on the last day of half term to be washed.
PE kits should include an indoor kit and an outdoor kit.
Indoor: white or blue t-shirt, black shorts and pumps.
Outdoor: White or blue t-shirt, joggers, jumper/jacket and trainers.
Over this term, Year 3 will be exploring the art world. They will be delving into their create project, ‘What makes art great?’ by researching a variety of different types of art. From this they will be establishing their own opinion on art. They are already started to research famous and some less known artists from around the world. The children will be recreating some artwork to create their own gallery to showcase. We can not wait to see all the artwork they produce in class and with Mrs Maker.
Over the Autumn term we will be focussing on our explore project, 'What makes the United Kingdom unique?' We will be looking at the countries that make up the UK and the cities within each country. As our project takes off, the children will take charge and research a country further. They will use their cross-curricular skills to create a portfolio to present to their peers. The research will aid the children to know more about famous landmarks, cultures and traditions. We are looking forward to seeing all of their finished work.
What makes the United Kingdom unique?
Classes 8 and 9 had Philip from Severn Trent visit them on 18.09.19. They were all fascinated by how much water is needed in order for different animals to survive. They listened carefully to how much water is needed in order to make our everyday objects.
During the workshop, all of the children learned about the water cycle and how water is cleaned so it can go back into rivers safely.
What Makes the United Kingdom Unique?
As part of our Explore Project, the children had to solve a jigsaw puzzle to discover where in the world they would be exploring. They were delighted when they realised it was the UK!

Classes 8 and 9 have been fascinated by our Rocks topic so far. They used their observational skills to examine the features of different types of rocks. They then used their observations to classify each rock. After learning that there are three types of rocks, both classes dived deeper to find out how each rock type is formed.
What a week! All the children in school enjoyed meeting lots of professionals. Classes 8 and 9 have been inspired by lots of people this week, and they have started to think some of the possible jobs available to them.
Severn Trent Water Workshop
Year 3 were very lucky to have Severn Trent visit again. This time, the children got to experience a variety of activities.
The children went on a digibus: This vehicle provided an immersive digital experience. They popped on some virtual reality glasses and entered a world where they could track a raindrop from the sky, through the water treatment process, to the home, back through the sewers and the waste treatment process to the river. They also were able to play in a virtual Severn Trent world that they’ve created in Minecraft and earn points for demonstrating the correct water and waste water behaviour.
The children went on an Experibus: They stepped into the role of a water worker! They could imagine themselves as a scientist, an engineer, a call centre operative and much more to learn what it’s like to work in the water industry.
In the hall, the children were able to play games like ‘flush it or bin it’, ‘leakage twister’ and ‘pipe buzzer’ to learn why we need to value water as a precious resource.
All of year 3 thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, and they were very grateful for their goodie bags.
