Welcome to Year 3!

We look forward to showing you all the interesting and fun things we do in Year 3. Keep on checking for updates!

Our teachers are Miss Furlong, Mrs Angstman, Miss Clayton, Mrs Archdale and Mrs Merdani





We took a trip back in time 2000 years ago to a Roman fort. We spent the day experiencing what life would’ve been like for a Roman soldier. We signed a contract using Roman lettering and Roman numerals, made oil lamps, learnt about Roman invasions and took part in Roman army drills. We even got paid for our full days work in coins! 

Converting media.

Plants, plants and more plants! We have been learning all about what plants need to grow and survive. We propagated a spider plant and are conducting an observation over time to discover whether plants grow better in soil, water or cotton wool. All will be revealed…


We have been learning all about the Romans in History. We had an inspiration day to immerse ourselves in Roman life. We took it in turns to be masters and servants, took part in an auction and designed our own Roman shields!


In geography we have been learning all about rivers and mountains in the UK. We decided to make our own mountains. They turned out great!


The cheeky elves visited Year 3 and left us some treats! Biscuits for everyone.


We celebrated the second week of advent in church. We had a great time with Father Neil. Well done to our wonderful readers. 


Our cheeky elves set up an #selfie station in our classroom. We couldn’t help but get some selfies.


We have been adding 3-digit and 2-digit numbers in maths, which involved making some exchanges. To help us, we have been playing the exchange game.

 Christmas Decorations Day

We had so much fun on decorations day prepping for Christmas. We made advent promises, snowflakes and baubles.

Week 6

This week we performed our Harvest Assembly for the whole school at Wednesday Word. We taught everyone about the importance of Harvest. We performed a Harvest Samba, which included Makaton sign, and then challenged the WHOLE school to collect as may non-perishable items to give to food banks. 

Week 5


In PE our area of learning is Games. We are having lots of fun developing our dribbling, passing and receiving skills to keep possession of the ball.  

Fanwood Scout Camp

We ventured to Fanwood Scout Camp with Year 6 and had an amazing day doing outdoor activities - we even made a den! Thanks Mrs Duffy for organising this for us.

This Green Moon

We visited This Green Moon, or should we say The Stone Age! We learnt all about how people lived in Neolithic times - we even hunted a cave wolf! 

Week 3


In science we've been looking at what kind of nutrients we need to stay healthy. We categorised foods into their different nutrient groups



In English we have been reading The Stone Age Boy. We used role play to understand the characters better, and collect conversation to demonstrate how to use direct speech in our writing.



We were SO lucky to have D-Side Dave come visit us to talk about how we can stay safe on the internet.
