I hope you have all had a safe and enjoyable break - you definitely deserved it after such an exciting Autumn term!
For the time being, I will be posting our weekly timetable on the class page, however all resources and meetings will need to be accessed via Teams. If you have any worries or concerns about this, please do not hesitate to contact us as we can make arrangements for paper packs to be collected. We are looking forward to seeing the amazing work that all our children produce!
Thank you for all your support, we are really proud of our Year 3 class.

Make sure to either submit your amazing work to Teams or email it to me. I am really looking forward to see the excellent learning you all do and I am hoping to share as much of it as I can here on our class page. Don't forget, if you are unable to access Teams, or need any support, please contact us.
Virtual Stone Age Day
Year 3 had a virtual Stone Age Day this week and we had lots of fun! We especially enjoyed our Meet the Expert Zoom meeting, and we learnt a lot about how to survive in the Stone Age! We went foraging, made tools, did some cave painting, made Stone Age stewed fruit and we built Stone Henge out of biscuits! Have a look at the pictures to see the amazing things we got up to.
Spellings will be sent home and uploaded here every Friday. The children only need to learn the column that they are sent home with. We will be testing spellings on a Friday morning. Feel free to use whichever method works best for your child!
There will be no spellings this week (w/c 14th December) as I am sure that we will be far too busy enjoying the festivities on Friday!
We have already started to receive some excellent homework from the children, we are very impressed with how much effort they are putting in at home as well as at school.
Please remember to send pictures or documents to the school office, as we are currently unable to take in physical copies of the work the children have completed.
We have started our new Science unit all about forces and magnets, and the children had a go at planning and conducting their own investigations. They used some toy cars and tested the amount of force needed to move them on different surfaces. They came to the conclusion that we need to use more force to push something on a bumpy surface, and less force to push something on a smooth surface.
Ancient Greek Day
We really enjoyed our Ancient Greek day and we learnt lots about things that the Ancient Greeks invented! We all made a mask inspired by Greek theatre props, as well as an olive wreath to wear for our own Olympic Games. All three teams managed to win a gold medal, which we found very exciting!
The children braved the weather to go on an animal hunt in their science lesson this week! We have been learning about the three different types of skeleton and their job was to find all 24 animals and sort them based on whether they had an endoskeleton, an exoskeleton or a hydro static skeleton. They all did a super job, we were especially impressed with their team-working skills and perseverance!
