Year 3 news...


We have investigating how shadows are formed and how they change throughout the day.

We have been using scientific vocabulary including transparent, translucent and opaque.


Our recent P4C enquiry was all about famine. We used a powerful image to generate questions. We then voted for our favourite question and held an open discussion about it.

Meet and Greet

We have been finding ways to greet each other first thing in the morning.

Some of us like a hug, others prefer a high five, a few of us even like a dance!

Maths Measure

In Maths we have been measuring length using metre, rulers and tape measures. We are starting to convert measurements between cm and m. We had fun measuring each other’s arm spans and objects around our classrooms.

Food Tasting

For our new ‘Food’ topic – we have been tasting food from around the world.

We tried food from France, India, Italy, Mexico and Greece.  We loved the mango chutney, but we weren’t so sure about the olives!

Chester Zoo Dance

We participated in a dance workshop linked to our work with Chester Zoo.  We created a Palm Oil dance highlighting the work Chester Zoo has done to raise awareness of this issue.

Easter Bonnet Competition

Thank you to everyone who entered our Easter bonnet competition. It was a fantastic idea that was organised by Year 2. We had some really creative hats from children of all year groups.

Fitness Friday

The children thoroughly enjoyed Fitness Friday on 29th March 2019. They started the day with a ‘Wake Up Shake Up’. They then participated in sporting activities throughout the day.

Comic Relief 2019

This year we wore odd socks for Comic Relief and all donated £1. We were even given the opportunity to enter a joke competition for 50p. All money raised was donated to charity. Take a look at some of our funky socks below:

British Science Week
