St Andrew's Number Day!
We've had so much fun learning about numbers and complicated algorithms today. We even did some outdoor learning in the school garden to support the length and perimeter unit we are learning.
Year 3 have been very busy carrying out a range of planting activities. These include: planting carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce, radishes, herbs, sunflowers and much more! We’ve experimented with growing cress in different environments and even removed the leaves off a plant to see what happens!
We are in the process of painting our garden mural and creating our own bee and ladybird planters using tyres.
We’re looking forward to nurturing these plants and feasting on them when they are ready to harvest!
Summer Term - 'From the Moor to the Sea'
Welcome back to a very exciting, fun filled Summer term. We hope that you have all had a wonderful and relaxing break and are set for the term ahead.
Our topic this term is 'From the Moor to the Sea' and is geography based. We will focus on Dartmoor and the journey of rivers down to the coastline.
Please see the class letter and curriculum map below for more detailed information about the term ahead.
Happy Easter everyone!
It has been so lovely having the children back in school again over the last few weeks. We really missed them.
We have been fully engaged in our Roman topic since returning and have done some fabulous work. We have been particularly impressed by the quality of the Roman research that was completed for homework. What a phenomenal effort Year 3! Well done!
This week we've learnt lots about how sound is made and travels in waves to our ears. We made straw instruments and listened to vibrations, investigated sound insulators, used cup telephones and watched how vibrations travel in water. So much fun!

We are all extremely touched by your kind and thoughtful gifts, such a wonderful surprise to be given. Thank you all so very much!
Have a fabulous holiday with your family and we look forward to welcoming you all back in the New Year, where our new topic will be: The Romans.
This term Year 3 have been working really hard on improving their musical skills on the ukulele.
We are lucky that Miss Royle’s Grandad is a carpenter and graciously gave us this ukulele to gift to one of the pupils that worked really hard on improving their skills.
All the the names were put in a hat and the lucky recipient was... Iyla.
Well done everyone for your ongoing work ethic and enthusiasm for our music sessions together.
Unfortunately we were unable to invite parents to join us for a maths morning this term, but we'd love you to see examples of the hard work that we have been doing. Below are links to various different addition and subtraction methods that we use in Year 3.
Virtual Ukulele Lessons
Thanks to Miss Smith the Year 3 class were still able to continue with their ukulele lessons virtually. Miss Royle was a super support leading the children in class. We're very excited that Miss Smith will be joining us in person this Friday for our lesson too.
Our Stone Age Adventure Day!
Year 3 had so much fun going back to the Stone Age. We created jewellery from stones and leather, painted rocks, drew cave designs using charcoal and chalk, played cave games, attempted to light the fire using flint and steel and also toasted marshmallows. What an action packed morning we had.
We've had such a fun day wearing mufti, completing our regular Friday bootcamp of exercises and learning all about thanksgiving.
We hope that you all have a wonderful half term break. We look forward to an exciting first week back where we'll discover all about the Mayflower voyage and go back to the Stone Age for our forest school experience.
Our Stone Age fun day!
We had such fun going back to the Stone Age yesterday. The children made Stone Age tools using drawing and cutting skills. Once assembled they used paper mache to make the head of the tool stronger.
We also foraged for food, berries and sticks. Look how much we found! Such a fun day!
Welcome back to the Autumn Term!
Welcome back to a very action packed and fun-filled Autumn term. The children have already impressed us with superb behaviour and enthusiasm towards learning. It really is wonderful to be back with a full class again. Mrs Dean has already filled our web page with fantastic photos of the children's first few days. It's wonderful to see their happiness and excitement about returning to school.
Below are the links to our curriculum map and letter. Please keep checking our web page for up-dates and photos.
