Have a look at Year 3's exciting and engaging curriculum:
English - How to Train Your Dragon
We have loved reading Cressida Cowell's exciting and funny book in our English lessons. We ended the unit by painting watercolour dragon eyes for either the Green Death or the Purple Death!
History - Alfred the Great
Our Spring 1 history topic is the Anglo-Saxons. As part of this topic, we have been studying Alfred the Great. He was the only Saxon king to defeat the Vikings! We have been celebrating his life and achievements by telling people around school why he was so great and making clay models to commemorate his life.
It has been a very festive (and busy!) couple of weeks in Year 3. In RE, we have been retelling the Nativity story and we have also been busy rehearsing for our Christmas Concert at St Mary's Church. From all of Year 3, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Roman Trip - 18th October 2018
We had an amazing day in York for our Roman trip. We spent a full day training to be Roman Auxiliary Soldiers and took part in a variety of activities. The most popular were pottery, Latin writing and weapon training. The trip gave us the opportunity to experience what it would be like to be a Roman soldier in Britannia.
History - Roman Shields
We are loving our Roman topic in Year 3! We spent a full week creating our very own (life size) Roman Legionnaire Shields. We carefully copied the design and then painted them. When they were all finished, we marched into the hall and formed a tortoise because the Celts (Mr Rolfe, Miss McCracken and Miss Cox) were attacking us!
Maths - Place Value
We have used a range of concrete resources during our first maths topic. We have used Base 10 for comparing numbers and even drew on our tables when placing numbers on a number line. Mr Rolfe and Mrs Sutcliffe are really impressed with all of our work in maths!
