The Year 3 Star of the Week is Noreen.  

The Year 3 Pride of the Week is Charlie for excellent listening skills. Next week we are looking for children who are super singers. The children in Year 3 think of a focus for the Pride Award each week. 

Congratulations to Ollie and Ava who have been voted Year 3 School Councillors. We are sure that they will do a great job. Well done to you both.

During Term 1 the children will be learning about life during the Stone Age. They will be encouraged to ask questions that develop their thinking skills and apply this to their learning. Thank you to all the children who have added resources to our theme table this term. 

Above you can see how the theme table is coming along. If your child has chosen this as their home learning project then they need to make or bring something in linked to the Stone Age.

Please enjoy the slideshow that shows us in action! 

Term 2 is called Food Fiasco which was named by the children. We will be learning about where food comes from and how it moves through our bodies. Thank you to all the children who have contributed to the new theme table. 

Term 3 is all about the Legacy left behind by the Romans. The children are all enthusiastic about learning what life was like then. We look forward to listening to our Guest Speaker during the term. 

Term 4 will focus on looking at different settlements and how they change over time. The children will be studying different types of rocks and looking at their properties. We are also looking forward to the Year 3 and 4 production 'A Bee Musical' so will be rehearsing hard. If your child has chosen this term for their home learning project you should have received a letter and we look forward to seeing their contribution.

Year 3 had a great day designing a Rangoli pattern and Hindu dancing. This has supported the children's learning on Hinduism.
