  • Mathematicians

    In Maths, Year 3 have moved on from learning about multiplication and division to start our topic on place value. We have been using lots of concrete manipulatives, such as base 10, arrow cards, and bead strings, to help us. We have then applied these skills to our learning in pictorial ways, such as using part-whole models and place value charts. We especially enjoyed using the arrow cards to make 3-digit numbers and explain how they are made!

  • Artists-in-training

    As the children have settled and found their feet in Year 3, it has become clear that we have a class full of budding artists! From drawing to papercraft and everything in between, the children welcome any chance to flex their creative muscles. This week in our Art session, the children took on the challenge of paint mixing to create primary, secondary and tertiary colours in a wheel. They did a magnificent job and we now have a very colourful display of our hard work!

  • Marvellous Multi-Sports Squad

    Six children in our class participated in the School Sports Partnership’s first inter-school event since lockdown: the Year 3 and 4 Multi-Sports competition. The children tried their hand at a range of sporting activities, such as hockey, boccia (which they were very good at!), football, NERF darts and tri-golf. The children scored a wonderful 334 points during the evening and well and truly got stuck in and gave everything their best go. Well done, Year 3 multi-sports team!

  • First Week Back!

    Our new Year 3 class have had a super first week at school. With the school’s 70th birthday to celebrate, we have thrown ourselves into party planning. We have made party food, learned to play happy birthday on the glockenspiel, sung the song in French and Mandarin (!) and designed our own parties. We also had a wonderful time at the fair and disco on Friday.

    We can’t wait for all the fun that Year 3 will bring!

  • Year 3 Mosaics

  • Extra work at home!

    In addition to our daily work, we have also been doing independent learning: cooking, litter picking, drawing and maths puzzles to name but a few!

  • P.E. at home

    We  like  doing  online  exercises  at  home.  Some  of  us  have  written about  our  favourite  sports.

  • year 3 measuring fun

    We had fun measuring in centimetres and millimetres.

  • Subtraction time

    We selected six number cards between 0 and 9 and we investigated different ways to subtract one number from the other.  We had to identify which number was the largest.

  • We love coding!

    We started off following two step instructions and then built up to four steps.  Some of us managed to find glitches too!
