Love God, Love Learning, Love One Another



Year 3

Year 3, were excited to have won the reading challenge this week. They managed to read 4 times with an adult this week. 

Here are they enjoying their tea party! 


We are learning to play the recorder. If you would like a recorder to use at home, plesase let us know at the office! We have our own recorder in school. 

We are enjoying learning how to read music. 

We have been learning how to use the Maypole. We've been following simple sequences and dancing in time to the music. We've really enjoyed dancing with our partners. 


This week, Year 3 had a martial arts taster session. Martial arts techniques, involve lots of muscular endurance, cardiovascular exercise and using your fundamental movements (ABC’s). During the session, they took part in a warmup, followed by some pad work looking at attacking and defending techniques. They really enjoyed the session. 


As part of our Extreme Earth topic we created dances to show ourselves moving like a volcano and it's larva. 


For Shakepeare Week, we had a Shakespeare afternoon. We learnt all about Shakespeare's family try, learnt how to write with real quils, how to do brass coin rubbings with Tudor coins and how to make our very own lavender bags. 


For collective worship, we have been looking at ways to give our love to others and to God. 


We has a special online session with the Change Makers! They encourage children across the UK to live their 'best' life by making the right eating and exercise choices. 


For our home school challenge, we learnt how to make a diorama! We hav ecreated scenes from the play The Tempest. 

Using drama we created a soundcape for the storm scene in The Tempest. We tried to be as realistic as possible including wails of the poor sailors, worried that they were about to meet their maker and fall overboard! 


We have been learning the play The Tempest by William Shakespeare. We have explored the chacteristics of one of the main characters - Caliban the sea monster. We enjoyed acting out parts from the play. 


Hi all,


Thank you to all of your for all of your hard work and being so supportive of your children's learning.

We have been learning about homophones and how different words can sound the same, but have different meanings. We learnt that there are a LOT of homophones and we learnt a helpful dance to help us remember them. 


In our topic lessons ,we have been learning about the different types of tools that the Stone Age people used. We mimed out using some of those tools to help us with writing a set of instructions for making our own Stone Age Axes and Stone Age fires. 


In English, we have been learning all about the Stone Age Boy. We have been writing a diary as though we were magically transported back in time to the Stone Age. We used drama to help us think of the different types of 'problems' we might meet in the Stone Age. As you can see some of us were worried that we might encounter a fierce bear! 

We have been learning about belonging at school. How we belong in school, with our families, with the Church and with the local area. We spent some time talking about the things that make us feel safe and part of a community.
