We welcomed a historian Darius Jackson in to Year 3 to present our invaders work and debate which group of invaders have had the most significant impact on Britain. All the children presented their work extremely well and discussions were lively. It was agreed across the year group that the Romans, Vikings and Saxons all had an impact on life as it is in Britain today and that no one group was more effective than another. Within this very busy half term the children have rehearsed and performed the production of Alice and have amazed us all with their enthusiasm […]

The children were full of enthusiasm and were asking lots of excellent and relevant questions. In English we have completed our class book Escape from Pompeii which the children all enjoyed very much. In maths, our module of addition and subtraction has also […]
Year 3 have been contacted by Mr Jackson as his family are struggling to conclude a very heated debate. They just can’t seem to decide which invaders have made the most impact on Britain today!

The Vikings have also been thrown into the mix as they managed to invade most of the country! We have been able to timeline when the different invasions took place and now we are beginning to delve deeper into […]
In Year 3 we have been learning how to code in our computing sessions. We have been using Scratch Junior to control motion, set the appearance and create a sequence of changes as well as adding text strings to enable to the different characters to do different things.The children were able to create dragon characters and they developed their coding skills to make these characters disappear and reappear, move across the screen, breathe fire and change direction. The children have impressed us all with their ability and skills in coding and they have enjoyed these sessions immensely. Alongside our coding […]
Year 3 were given the task of writing a formal website piece for parents to let everyone know all about our learning so far. Here are some examples: Last week we found some newspaper headlines telling us that the Queen’s jewels have been stolen and mysterious sounds had been heard in the middle of the night! We found a red, glittery egg that was warm. We are trying to become student Dragonologists because we found a book about enormous, scary dragons. It even has a map that will help us learn about dragons. Musa 3J In Year 3 we found […]
