Welcome to Year 3!
A big welcome to all our new cohort of Year 3 children, we look forward to getting to know you better and sharing lots of fun and memorable learning experiences with you based around our theme for this term 'Tough Times'.
Parents, we hope you find this area of our website useful for finding out about what the children are learning in Year 3. We are always looking for ways to work more closely with our families and openly welcome any feedback on how we can improve the partnership between home and school, so please do let us know if you have any suggestions.

Year 3 Learning Overview
W/C 16.09.19 This term we are learning about the ‘Stone Age’. We went into the nature garden and used natural resources and string to create our own Stone Age tools. Have a look at below to see what we made.
W/C 23.09.19 During this week we have been learning about fossils and on Wednesday 25th September the children took part in a Fossils workshop with a company called Geobus! The children learnt about a range of different fossils and made their own ammonite or trilobite fossils using salt dough. The children were all engaged and enjoyed both making and looking at a range of different fossils.
Stone Age Day
On Friday 15th November the children will be taking part in a 'Stone Age' workshop. Please find attached a document to support you with costumes for the day.
Stone Age Day
On Friday 15th November Year 3 took part in 'Stone Age' day. The children took part in a range of activities throughout the day which they all thoroughly enjoyed. Cathy from Gripping History was fantastic getting the children engaged starting the morning off with letting them join in with the chronology of the Stone Age to the Iron age in which the children joined in and dressed up too! They also got the chance to look at a range of artefacts, prehistoric houses, having a better understanding of life at home during the Stone Age and even got the chance to do some hunting using bows and arrows! The children as always did us proud in which they were very respectful throughout the whole day.
Year 3 Iron Man Drama Workshop
This term the children have really enjoyed reading The Iron Man in English. Recently they took part in a drama workshop led by David from Redbridge Drama Centre. Focusing on different acting techniques and skills, they worked individually and in groups to act out parts from the book and performed them in front of the rest of the class. The workshop really helped them gain a better understanding of the book. They really enjoyed the workshop and all children were very enthusiastic.
