Year 3

We would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe summer holiday! We are all so very excited that we will be continuing with our class next year and look forward to the exciting learning in Year 4.

Thank you so much for all your kind words, cards and gifts. We feel thoroughly spoilt. 

See you in the Autumn term, ready for our exciting new theme: Back to the StoneAge!


With love from the Year 3 Team xxxxsmiley

Party time!


Our amazing needlework inspired by the Bayeaux Tapestry. Wow!


We have watched our caterpillars transform from pupa to beautiful butterflies and released them into our school garden. It was magical! 

Ukuleles in Year 3

In Year 3 the children have developed their ukulele and singing skills with Miss Smith every fortnight. Their progress has been phenomenal! Here are a few of our final highlights. The children wrote their own class song, based on poetry that was written in our previous unit, 'Children Around the World'. Such a beautiful and confident performance from every child.

Presenting Mike our Year 3 plaque of thanks for all the wonderful dining opportunities that he has given children at Lorenzos. Muchas Gracias Mike!

We learned a section of Thor’s Saga using the ‘Talk for Writing’ technique. We are so pleased with our group performances. Knowing the story so well really helped us create incredible stories of our own.

We had a fantastic time at Victoria Park planting Scarlett's winning flower bed design. We had fun playing factual games about bees, moths and bats, made seed bombs to take home and made a beautiful mobile. It was such an enjoyable day! smiley

A huge congratulations to our talented winner of the Victoria Park flower bed design competition. Her design is stunning! She won a £20 Waterstones voucher. Fabulous!

We will plant her design on our visit to the park next week. Watch out for more photographs!

The Vikings are coming!

The Queen's Jubilee

To help us celebrate the Queen's Jubilee the whole school painted beautiful portraits of the Queen. Here are just a few of our stunning examples. 

Viking Helmets - Part 1

We had great fun using paper mache to make our Viking helmets. There was lots of mess!surprise

Victoria Park Project

We are so fortunate to be involved with a project down at Victoria Park. Our first morning at the park involved weeding and preparing 3 raised flower beds, then carefully planting lots of Geranium plants. We had so much fun! 

The children have also designed their very own flower bed and the winning design, once chosen, will be used to create our very own St Andrew's flower bed. How exciting! 

Welcome to the Summer Term 2022!

We hope that you have all had a wonderful Easter break and are ready for a very exciting Summer term. Our themes are 'Valiant Vikings' and 'Victoria Park Project'. Please see the attached curriculum map and poster below for more detail.

We have so much to look forward to this term!

Happy Easter, 🐣 Everyone!

Last Supper Drama...

We have enjoyed finding our about the last meal Jesus shared with his disciples. We are looking forward to performing at St. Andrew’s Minster on Friday.

Active fun in P.E.

Beautiful Mother’s Day cards for our lovely mums! 💗 

We thoroughly enjoyed our Art Day. These mixed media collages were inspired by photographs of children on a rubbish dump near Managua, Nicaragua. The children are searching for anything recyclable that they can sell. 

What a fabulous ‘Children of the World’ class assembly! We are so proud of you, Year 3! It was so lovely to have parents to join us in the hall after such a long time. We think Mrs Allchurch is right - you did radiate joy! You all spoke so clearly and sang, danced and performed so confidently.

Trip to the Science Lab at HQ Building


On Tuesday we were treated to an interesting afternoon investigating forces and magnets, hosted by scientists from Babcock. Our favourite challenge was using our knowledge about forces to prevent an egg from breaking when our group inventions were thrown down the steps! Great fun. 


World Book Day!

We loved reading to the Foundation class, enjoyed a fun whole school assembly, had a relaxed Yoga session, exchanged books and came together to share our class novel. A perfect world book day! smiley We came dressed as either our favourite book characters, or in our PJ's. We even completed a sponsored read to raise money for new books at school.

Spanish Day

We had so much fun learning Spanish restaurant role play, tasting amazingly scrumptious Spanish tapas at Lorenzos and learning to Flamenco dance with Miss Mallard.

NSPCC Number Day!

We had great fun wearing clothes with a number on to raise money for the NSPCC. The afternoon was so exciting as the children were allowed to make their own board games involving challenging maths questions and point scoring.

Sampling food from South Africa and Fortune cookies from China - Thank you so much Aidan and Fred, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Children of the World Homework Project

The children made a fabulous effort completing their homework to present to the class. We were amazed by the quality of their work and their confidence sharing it with the class.

St. Andrew’s Day 

On the 30th November it was a special day for us.  We really enjoyed finding out about the saint our school is named after. It was rather emotional performing in the hall in front of the audience after such a long time!

Our Adventure to WildWood@Escot!

The Year 3 and 4 classes had the most amazing time at Escot. We spent the morning carrying out various activities in the Anglo-Saxon village. These included: bread making, carving wood, grinding corn, dressing-up, looking at artefacts, shaping metal in the Forge and looking in a range of shelters from different time periods. 

During the afternoon we ventured off through the woodland to discover a range of animals including: lynx, Artic foxes, wolves, wild boar, bears, owls and much more. We foraged for edible leaves and found yarrow and stinging nettles. Some of us were brave enough to sample them. Yum! 

Luckily we had enough time for the adventure park before heading home. We had the best day and had so much fun. 

Anglo -Saxon Shelter Building

We had great fun designing and making our Anglo-Saxon shelters. The children carefully measured, cut, sawed and assembled their materials together and produced fantastic looking homes.
