Year 3

Welcome to our Year 3 blog

Come here for weekly updates!

Dear parents,

On Wednesday 2nd December, Year 3 will be having their Theme Day for The Firework-Maker's Daughter. During this day, the children will be doing fun and creative activities relating to Science, Art and Writing. 


The children will wear school uniform as usual for this day. However, if you have an old shirt that could be used for Art, we would be very grateful.


Many thanks,

Year 3 team


Year 3 are having their Palaeontology Day on Wednesday 14th October, as mentioned earlier on this half-term on this very blog. Children do not need to wear a costume but are very welcome to dress up as a Palaeontologist. Here's to a great day!

Dear Parents,

Children will be designing, preparing, sewing and evaluating a sock puppet to go along with our theme (Rocks and Soils: Fossil Hunters) in DT.

They will need one large white athletic sock to decorate.  Please send in a sock for your child

by Wednesday 23rd of September 2020.

Thank you for your support,

Year Three Team

Mr. Roberts, Ms. Helm, Mrs. Darby


Palaeontology Day


Dear Parents,

On Wednesday 14th October, the children in Year 3 will be having their Palaeontology Day with their class. This is planned to be a fun, interactive day that will involve indoor and outdoor activities. Children will be producing art work as well as learning more about the job of a palaeontologist.


The children are welcome to dress up as palaeontologists if they wish (there is no expectation to do so). For instance, they could wear a shirt, wide brim hat, shorts and boots. If you child does dress it, it is important that they are going to be comfortable and safe in their outfit. No tools should be brought in!
