Working Hard, Trying our Best, Having Fun

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

We are the lovely, kind and enthusiastic year 3 class. We hope you enjoy seeing what we get up to!


Environment Day - Summer Term

Once again, we had a fantastic time up at the woodland site. This term we completed some ladybird hunting which needed lots of patience. However, eventually we found 3 ladybirds and could identify which species they were. To link in with our Greek topic, we also competed in the woodland Olympics with our very own medals and wreaths made out of materials from the woodland. To finish a great day, we hid our pebble arts for future children to find.

Royal Wedding Picnic

We had a fantastic time at the Royal Wedding picnic as we celebrated the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan. Thank you to the kitchen staff for providing our lovely food!


During SRE week we have been learning about our bodies and how they will change as we get older. For one of our sessions we looked at personal hygiene and the use of products e.g. deodorants. We had a look at some deodorant adverts from the past and then had a go at making our own. Here’s what we came up with...

We have had a great final week of term with some fantastic Christmas activities. Here are a few photos of the festivities!


For this term’s environment days we learnt all about hedgehogs. In the UK numbers are declining so we need to help! We decided to make some hedgehog homes on our school field which are perfect for hibernation. Here’s how you make one...

MUD RUN 2017

What an amazing day we had in year 3 as part of the Mud Run 2017. In the morning, we transformed our cardboard boxes into all kinds of weird and wonderful creations! The afternoon then saw us join the rest of the school in completing our sponsored fun run. As the run went on, the event lived up to it's name but we all had great fun in the mud!

Environment Day

We had a great day at the woodland site looking for signs of Autumn and making our 'Forest Friends'. The next day we used our imagination to bring our 'Forest Friends' to live and write about our adventures with them. Take a look below at our creations!
