Hello Year 3,

Sorry we haven't updated our page for a while, we have been waiting for the new website to be completed. We hope you like the new layout! We have posted  some pictures of the activities we have been doing so far this term, we hope you enjoy sharing them with your grown ups at home. 

Year 3 Pirate Day

Why are pirates called pirates? Because they aaarrrggghhh!!!

It has been pirate day here in Year 3. We have had a great day and taken part in lots of fun activities. We wrote some amazing character descriptions, played battleships against our partners, designed our own pirate flags and played pirate party games! We had so much fun and we hope you like the pictures.

Conrad Burdekin Poetry Workshop

We were very lucky today to have a virtual visit from the poet Conrad Burdekin. Together as a year group, he shared some of his new poems and even helped us to write our very own poem all about doughnuts! 

Get your doughnuts

from the stall.

Take them home but

do not fall.

Do not throw them

in the bin.

Eat your tea

then stuff them in!!

We have be performing the poem in small groups. We hope you enjoy them!


TTRS Red Carpet Event

This week we had our very first red carpet event for our times tables. We went into the hall and we were awarded our land yards for getting all our 4 times tables correct in 3 minutes. It was fun to walk on the red carpet!!

Skipping Workshop

On Wednesday 4th November, Georgia visited our school to teach us how to skip. She has represented Great Britain in international skipping tournaments and she taught us some really cool tricks to do with our skipping ropes. We have loved taking our skipping ropes outside at breaktime and dinner time to practise these tricks!!

Remembrance Day

On Wednesday 9th November, we made our own poppies for Remembrance Day. 

Hello Year 3,

We hope you have enjoyed your first full week with your new teachers. We know the routines are a little bit different to what you have been used to but we think you have all done amazing.

We have put some pictures below of the fun activities we have been doing, for you to show your grown ups at home!

Bread Experiment 

This week in Year 3, we carried out a bread experiment to show the importance of hand washing. We chose some children to push their hand down on the bread for 20 seconds. One piece of bread was untouched, another piece of bread had been touched with dirty hands, another had been touched with sanitised hands and the final piece of bread was touched with clean hands where the child had used anti-bacterial soap and water to wash their hands for 20 seconds. Below are the predictions we made and we will keep your posted on the outcome!

Investors In Pupils 

This week we have been writing up our targets for this term in Year 3. The children had to think of a target they would like to achieve this term. It would be nice for you to ask them what their target is so they can be working on it at home!

While We Can't Hug 

As part of our literacy this week, we have been reading a story called 'While We Can't Hug' By Eoin Mclaughlin and Polly Dunbar. It is about the importance of friendship and ways of showing others we care in a time where we are not able to hug. As part of this topic we wrote some recipes on 'How to Make the Perfect Friend.' We added some love, with a dollop of kindness. Have a look at some of our work below.
