Our learning so far this year!

History - This term, Year 3 are finding out about the Ancient Egyptians. We have learnt why and how they mummified the pharaohs by mummifying a tomato using a special salt mixture called Natron. This mixture is made up of salt and bicarbonate of soda.

DT - Just a few images of the pneumatic toys that Year 3 created using a simple pneumatic system made up of tubing and a balloon.

Alexander and Discovery classes really enjoyed their wellbeing day on Wednesday. The classes spent the day completing a range of activities based on having a positive self-image, understanding their emotions and what coping strategies they can use when they are feeling overwhelmed or upset

Last term, Year 3 enjoyed their visit to our local church, St. Margarets as part of our RE curriculum. We loved hearing Reverend North tell us about the how and why Christians pray, why prayer is important to them and learning about Christian symbols.

English - We ordered images from Stone Age Boy to help us remember the story.

Maths - We used rulers and metre sticks to measure objects in and outside the classroom. This term we have been investigating angles and we used set squares to find right-angles in the classroom.

Forest School - Discovery class enjoyed their first visit this year to Forest School!

Music - Alexander class enjoyed using instruments and their story mountains to create music for different sections of a story.

PSHE - We investigated how we can communicate to each other without talking, so we used actions to convey the object that was on the card we had chosen.

Science - Year 3 enjoyed using magnets in the classroom to see if different materials either attracted or repelled a magnet!

Listening to stories is an invaluable way to increase understanding of vocabulary as well as developing good listening skills. 


Here are a couple of websites which offer free audio books for children to listen to. This might be instead of reading aloud to a parent or in addition! (It is still important to hear your child read at least every few days).
