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

St Robert Bellarmine Feast Day - RE/Collective Worship

We gathered together for Collective Worship to celebrate the life of St Robert Bellarmine. We learnt about his early life and how he helped so many people throughout his lifetime.


Macmillan Cake Sale - PSHE

Yr3 donated very generously to raise money for Macmillan. We had a lovely morning and as a school raised an amazing £1000

Play in a day - English/History

We spent the day with Altru Drama learning all about Stone Age Britain. We helped write and then performed a play based on what we had learnt in just one day. The children were amazing and gave a great performance at the end!

Hello Yellow - PSHE

To raise awareness of mental health we wore yellow and discussed ways in which we can have positive mental health. Our big message is to treat everybody with kindness including ourselves. We talked about all the things that make us happy - there are lots!

Light and Shadows - Science

In science we are learning all about light sources and shadows. We spent some time investigating how shadows are formed and which type of objects make the best shadows! We learnt that when light hits an opaque object, light is blocked and a shadow is formed on the opposite side. Do you like our shadows?! 

Book Character Fun Run - English/PSHE/PE

Our fun run theme was all about characters from books. We chose our favourite characters and ran a fantastic course dressed up. All the sponsor money raised will be used to buy new books for our school. Thank you everyone for your generosity!

Harvest Festival - Collective Worship

Year 3 led our collective worship for the Harvest Festival. We gathered together to think about how our small actions can make a difference to other people our community. We thanked God for the farmers and their harvest, the Sun and the rain and very importantly, our families who donated lots of items for the foodbank to help people less fortunate than us in Sefton. Thank you everyone.

Say No To Racism - PSHE

We wore red and blue to say 'NO' to racism. We discussed how everyone should be treated fairly and that we should treat others the way we would like to be treated. Racism does not have a voice in our school community and we will not tolerate it in any form. 

Remembrance Day - Collective Worship

We gathered to remember and pay our respects to fallen heroes and their families. We talked about the significance of wearing a red poppy and why it was so important to remember. We said prayers and reflected quietly.

Anti-bullying week - PSHE

For this year's anti-bullying campaign we wore odd socks to celebrate our individuality and uniqueness. This was linked to all the work we did during our 'friendship fortnight.' We talked about how important it is to be inclusive and kind. 


Trashion Show

All children were challenged to take an old item and create a new stylish product from it. We had tie-dye t-shirts, graphic designs, caps, bandanas, handbags etc! It was a brilliant way to show that we can be more sustainable and friendly to our environment by recycling our old clothing into something new! Have a go and see what you can create! 

Science - Light

In this topic, we learned Year 3 investigated which materials will make the best shadow puppets. They worked in groups to decide which materials made the best the best shadow for their puppet. They judged it against the rest of the criteria in their challenge brief. 




Children took part in lots of festive activities ranging from a Santa Dash, making baubles, Christmas jumper day and lots of arts and crafts. 


Forces Games

The children worked with Steph O'Donnell to create games powered by different forces. First, they made a marble maze which is powered by gravity. After that, they made a magnetic fishing game. Alongside our forces, the main focus of the day was creating shell structures, adding inclines and making functional, fun products.

Inside Out Day

We all wore an item of clothing inside out to promote children's mental health awareness week. We wanted to show that how you look on the outside, doesn't always reflect what you are feeling on the inside. We know how important it is to talk to somebody if you are feeling sad. The theme this year was 'Growing Together'. We all considered how we have grown and how we can help others to grow.

British Values - Tolerance and Respect

We have been learning about British Values and for our assembly, we focussed on Tolerance and Respect. We learnt that tolerance means showing respect for others who are a different, race, religion, age or gender. And those who have opinions that aren't the same as ours. we are all entitled to our own views and we don't all have to agree on what we believe is best.
