Year 3 2016/17

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.

World Book Day

Y3 enjoyed a day full of reading for World Book Day. The Y5s popped in after register to read aloud with us and share our favourite books.

Fantastic costumes could be seen all over the Y3 corridor and we all enjoyed 'Drop everything and Read'. When the bell rang, you had to read no matter where you were or what you were doing.

Weston Park Museum

In March we visited Weston Park Museum to learn about mummification.

We met the museum's mummies before making a mummy of our own. Fred made it to the afterlife with our careful attention.

Stone Age Day

Jenny from The History Van visited us in September as we experienced life in the Stone Age.

We had a day exploring what life would be like; hunting for animals, making weapons and even milking a sheep. The Y3s looked fabulous in their costumes.

Creswell Crags

Our annual trip to Creswell Crags was a huge success.

The Y3s enjoyed a tour of the caves and a good look around the gorge itself before digging for real prehistoric animal bones and learning about life in the Ice Age. Everybody had a fantastic day.

Christmas decorations

The Y3s all made a Christmas decoration to take home for their trees. The children had to design, make and evaluate their products carefully.

Here are some of the finished decorations.
