Welcome to Year 3.
This is the start of KS2. Here we aim to provide a happy and secure learning environment for all who join us. It is an important year as the children learn to become more independent. We encourage them to engage in their learning in order to achieve their full potential.
Our classrooms are based near the back playground and we have an excellent view of the school allotment. We provide a rich, stimulating, creative curriculum which caters for all the needs of our children.
The teaching staff are: Mrs Hamilton(Year Leader), Mr Ellicott (Class Teacher), Miss Bailey (Class Teacher), Mrs Allen (Class Teacher).
Mrs J Hamilton (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Millward (Teaching Assistant).
Saving the world - The Rainforest 24/6/17
Year three children had the opportunity to dress up for their inspiration day! Some came as animals from the rainforest, others came as explorers and we even had a few trees! We also had a visit from a rainforest expert - Rainforest Dave!
Gateways to the World Inspiration Day - 3rd April 2017
Year 3 spent their inspiration day travelling around the World - well within their classrooms! They listened to the staff's travels and then took part in lots of different activities. They painted some Aboriginal art and got the musical instruments out! In the afternoon everyone went outside to learn the Haka.
Everyone looked fantastic in their 'holiday' clothes - well done year 3!
The Iron Man - writing opportunity
Late last night (12th March) something strange happened in the playground. Mr Carter went to investigate and found lots of metal everywhere as well as two rather large footprints! What could it have been? The children in year 3 will be investigating and writing all about it.
Set 1 English - The Iron Man by Ted Hughes
To prepare for writing our own instructions, the children in set 1 created their own robots. They will use these skills to help them write instructions later on in the week.
Set 1 Maths investigation
Set 1 were given the challenge of measuring a length of wool and then finding 1/10 of it! It was a lot harder than it looks!
Year 3 Inspiration day - Food Glorious Food!
During the year 3 inspiration day, the children came dressed to school as either a chef, waiter / waitress or a piece of food! They used lots of imagination with their costumes! They also got to draw fruit and then taste it!
Lots of fun was had by all!
Year 3 Parent Workshop - Healthy Eating (November 2016)
Year 3 invited their parents to a healthy eating workshop. Both parents and children joined in the different activities.
The Romans - Inspiration day 2016!
Year 3 had a very special visitor - Professor McGinty! Each class went into his time travelling front room and found out lots of interesting facts about the Romans.
We also had lots of fun creating our own mosaic patterns on stars!
