Welcome to Year 3

A great start to Year 3!

The children have settled into Year 3 routines and expectations brilliantly! We have had a great first few days of learning. We have started our topic on Ancient Egypt and have looked at the difference between then and now.

Strangly enough we were sent an exciting news report from Mrs Vicarey linked to our topic:

It was then that we started our journey to writing a Newspaper article! The children in Year 3 are learning to be journalists and have been asking key questions about the event. 



This half term we have been looking at forces and magnets. We carried out an enquiry to answer the question: 'Are all metal objects magnetic?' We used the bar magnet to test this and see if the magnet is attracted to the object. 


Religious Education

This half term the children in Year 3 were looking at special symbols within various religions. 

As part of this learning we visited Wimpole Road Church.


To compliment our learning about Ancient Egypt we desgined, made and evaluated Egyptian collars. We tried really hard to use the joining technique of sewing!

Egyptian Day!

Year 3 enjoyed a spectacular Egyptian Day! The children and staff dressed up, made Egyptian flatbread, name tablets out of clay, learnt more about Ancient Egypt and took part in some Egyptian dance!
