Welcome to Year 3

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Callum Smith - Sportsperson Study

Pro boxers Callum and Stephen Smith visited Year 3 as part of their focus on the sporting achievements of British boxers. Each child got a chance to ask them some questions, hold their belts and were all also given a signed autograph to take home! Everyone was incredibly excited about the visit! 

RE - Homes 

Understanding Scripture 


As part of our learning for the topic on 'Homes' we broke down a piece of scripture and discussed what it means to us. We looked at Colossians 3:12-17 and discuss how we are chosen people by God. 

History - Ice Age to Iron Age

Play in a Day

This week the children took part in and performed a Play in a Day. They worked with Zoe from Altru drama to develop their knowledge and a deeper understanding of what life was like in Prehistoric Britain. The children learned about four different periods; The Ice Age, Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron. They were also introduced to terms like mesolithic, paleolithic and neolithic can know explain the differences in each period. To end a great day, they performed an excellent play for our entire school to share their new-found knowledge. Well done Year 3!

British Values - Democracy

School Council Elections

This week the children took part in the school council elections. There were a number of candidates who put themselves forward to be a school councillor. After listening to each manifesto the children headed to the polling station to complete the ballot papers and cast their votes. The candidates were of a very high standard and it was very difficult for the children to decide who to vote for. A big well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to our new Year 3 councillors!
