Year 3 2017/18

Welcome to our Year 3 page for this year.

Here are just a few examples of some of our fantastic work, trips and exciting learning.

Flood Day

Our Year 3 children had fun when the History Van arrived at school.

This was a unique, interactive experience where the children learnt about the great Sheffield flood of 1984. Activities took place during the morning including researching using old newspapers and drama groups.

Egyptian Museum

Our Year 3 children have been really busy this term learning about Ancient Egypt.

Our school hall was transformed in to a museum which was full of Ancient Egyptian artefacts the children had made during their Art lessons. These included Egyptian masks which they thoroughly enjoyed making.

Parents were invited along to see what their child had made and to visit the museum.

Fire! Fire!

Our Year 3 children had a visit from the Fire Service.

They were given information on fire drills, escape plans and also learnt how to stop, drop and roll.

The kids talked about the difference between good fires and bad fires. They also watched a DVD and took part in a quiz.

They were taught how to stay safe both at home and at school.

Year 3 Open Morning

Some of our classes have been lucky enough to have parents visit for the morning. This was a fantastic experience where parents had first-hand insight into how their children are taught, witnessing a Maths lesson.

It was great to see lots of parents take up this opportunity and the children enjoyed showing their parents how they work.

Year 3 Stone Age Day

Our Year 3 children had a visit from The History Van. This was a unique, interactive experience where the year 3 children and staff dressed and acted as prehistoric cavemen re-enacting important events from this period.

The children made weapons and clothes and designed their own jewellery. The whole day was a great success, thoroughly enjoyed by both pupils and staff.

Spears at the ready!

Our Year 3 children enjoyed a fun packed day out at Creswell Craggs. This was part of their topic on Prehistoric Britain.

They took part in a selection of workshop activities and outdoor tasks based on survival skills, these included spear throwing and den building. Luckily the rain held off for us.

Y3 visit Weston Park

Our Year 3 children took a tram ride to Weston Park Museum as part of their Egyptian topic.

Here they learnt how to embalm and make a mummy just like the Ancient Egyptians.

The children also spent some time becoming history detectives and examining artefacts and making a Shabti, a pocket-sized servant. They have enjoyed continuing the theme during class and are making items for an exhibition in school.
