Category Archives: Year 3


It has been wonderful to have the children at school again. The Year 3 team has been so impressed with how confidently and happily the children have returned. There are lots of smiling faces ( probably lots os smiling parents and carers too!). The children have quickly got into the routines which keep them safe in their bubbles, and have coped well with the changes in classroom set ups and playtimes etc. It has been great getting to know the children and doing lots of art and creative activities to ease our way back into school.

We are really looking forward to a fantastic first few weeks settling in and beginning the super topics in Year 3.  Remember to try to read as much as you can at home and keep practising times tables. Have a go at the home learning this week and HAVE FUN!  

Summer Holiday Fun!

Here are a few short activities that you could have a try at this holiday.
Take a photo of yourself to show your teacher when we come back to school!

The library has some exciting ideas for reading called the Silly Squad

Remember to keep reading and practising your times tables too.
Have a super summer and see you soon in September.
Stay safe, stay active, stay smiling!


A final hello from Year 3😭

We hope you and your family is well. A big well done to all of you who have been trying to keep up with the home learning on Google Classroom. Congratulations to William, Shaun and Noah who have been chosen as star workers for the great work they submitted to .

Well done guys, you can download your certificates here:

A special well done to Shaun who wrote a fabulous volcano poem. Take a look:

At school, our pod have had lots of fun learning about shapes and investigating symmetry. We created our own pictures using different shapes.

Sadly, this will probably be the last blog post for this year. You have been a brilliant year 3 and have worked really hard; we are just sad that we didn’t get to spend the whole year together!

Thanks to parents and carers for helping your children continue to learn at home. We wish you all lots of luck for next year, and hope you have a brilliant summer.

Best Wishes. Stay Safe

The Year 3 Team

Hello from Year 3!

Hello Year 3. Wow has been a long time since we posted on the BLOG! At the moment there are 15 year 3 pupils in school and we are in the 5GT classroom. The classroom looks different because we have to keep a safe distance. We wanted to say hi!

These are the people in our pod:

Like you guys at home, we have been doing the learning from google classroom. This week we created seascapes based on the work of artist William Turner. 

We really miss you all and hope you are all doing lots of fun learning at home. Keep checking in with us to see what we are up to. Send in your work to the home learning address and we will try to share that too.
