Hello and Welcome to Year 3's Blog!


We have had another busy week at school! We enjoyed it on Tuesday when the Prison Service and Police service visited school to teach us all about actions and consequences. We learned lots of interesting facts and how to stay safe when outside of school! We had the pleasure of meeting 2 cute, lively police dogs who kept us very entertained. 


A big Congratulations to Lyndon, who won the 'pupil of the week' certificate. We are really pleased to see him back in school after being so poorly! Welcome Back Lyndon! 


We had another fun filled morning this morning watching the Eclipse. We all gathered in the large hall and watched it on a giant screen, it was so fascinating. We came back to class and had a great discussion all about it! It linked very nicely to our Light and Shadows Topic in Science! 


Our brains have been working extremely hard this week, we have learned all about volcanoes and mountains around the world and watched some news clips about Natural Disasters. We even wrote a persuasive letter to Miss Power and Mrs Parry encouraging them to visit a range of mountains. We included lots of Super Sentences!


Have a relaxing weekend... lots of love Miss Power, Mrs Willcox and Mrs Marron xx

Hello and Welcome back to Year 3W for another fun filled week! We have been very busy this week and are very excited about the upcoming break!!!! 



In English this week we have continued reading our Roman Story, We wrote a description pretending we were a Roman Soldier guarding Hadrian's wall! We included lots of Super Sentences in our writing and some brilliant wow words!!! We have also been busy being text detectives, answering comprehension questions all about the Romans!

We have now come to the end of our Roman Topic. We have looked at Roman Gods and learned all about Hadrian's Wall. Ask us all about it!

Hello and welcome back to our Year 3W blog!

This week we have had lots of fun learning more about the Romans and in particular Boudicca.  We have been learning how to ask questions to find out more about an historical figure.  We all wrote questions and some of us played the role of Boudicca and answered the questions in role.  This is called hot-seating.


In maths we have been working on our subtraction skills and subtracting from 3 digit numbers.  We are all still working hard on our times tables too  :-)


In topic we have learned all about how a Roman soldier used to dress and how much of Europe the Roman's managed to conquer.


In Science we have continued with our theme of Light and Shadow.  We learned that some things may look like they are giving off light but in fact they are reflecting light.  The moon reflects light from the sun, cat's eyes and road signs refelct light from street lights and car headlights.  Without a light source shining on them they would not be visible!





We have been really busy this week learning all about the Romans.


In English we all came up with lots of adjectives to describe Boudicca and then wrote super sentences using them. We know what a simile is and how to write 2 A sentences!


In Topic we were really excited to have some real life Romans visit us on Thursday.  They told us all about their Roman lives and re-enacted a Roman battle!  We thought it was really funny when they told us how they use the toilet!!!!


In Science we started a new topic and are learning about light and shadows.  We have sorted different sources of light into artifical and natural light sources and even learned that some animals actually give off light!!


Our maths lessons have been all about adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers and how to subtract near multiples of 10. 


Congratulations to Bo Grigerova who earned the certificate this week for being a marvellous mathematician!!


Welcome back to our Year 3 blog J


This week we are all excited to have a new teacher in our class.  Miss Kelly is just as excited to be here and will be working with us until the February half term, alongside Miss Power.  She is currently busy learning all our names!

Miss Kelly is very impressed with us so far: she thinks we are all very welcoming; have lovely manners and are superbly well behaved.



Our new topic is the Romans.  We are really looking forward to learning all about the Roman Civilizatation and have been doing some research using books and the internet.



In maths we have been learning all about place value in money and comparing different amounts using less than < and greater than > symbols.



We have been writing our New Year’s Resolutions using our super sentences.  We are getting really good at using our 2 A sentences now!

We have been learning the story of Romulus and Remus and have made our own story boards.



Keeping Safe

We have been learning about the differences between good touches and unwanted touches.  We have learned that we all have a right to privacy and personal space and what we should say, and do, to keep ourselves safe.



Well done to Teodora who won the certificate last week!

Well done to Lewis MCCormick who won the certificate this week for 100% effort in Maths and English!



Friday 5th December 2014...... Hello and Welcome back to our Blog!!


ENGLISH.......... In English this week we have been looking at the book The Snowman. It wasn't an ordinary book because it had no words!!!!! We had to look at the pictures and try to tell the story in our mind. We shared what we thought was happening in each picture. We have a wonderful Snowman Display in our class, so we are going to show all of our work on there! 


MATHS.......... In Maths this week we have been looking at angles, we used a post it note to measure if objects had a right angle. We have also found angles in shapes and found acute angles and obtuse angles.


SCIENCE....... In Science we had a special visitor. Joanne spoke to us all about rocks and showed us some of her special rock collection. We asked her lots of questions and now have a better understanding of where some rocks come from. 


TOPIC....... In Topic this week we have been learning about the BRONZE AGE. We thought about artefacts and who they my have belonged to. 


Remember we have our School Trip on Wednesday and we are still waiting for some slips and money! Please bring these in on Monday!!!! 


Have a lovely weekend, Love from Year 3! xx


Friday 28th November 2014...............Hello and Welcome back to our Blog!!

Friday 21st November- Hello again and Welcome to our busy blog!


Again in Y3W We have had a busy week and we can't wait to tell you all about it. 




We are still really enjoying our book 'Stone Age Boy'. This week we thought of questions to ask the characters to help us learn more about them. We also used our knowledge to compare what life was like then to now and discussed the similarities and differences. We have also used our Super Sentence Skills to describe animals found in the Stone Age. 





In Maths this week we have been busy looking at fractions. We have impressed Miss Power with our knowledge and have even started to look at fractions of amounts. 





This week in Science we have continued to be rock detectives. We tested their properties with different equipment. We found that some rocks absorbed water and some didn't, we also found that some rocks float and others sink. 





In topic we have been busy making Stone Age Tools. We made spears, torches and flint knives. We went over to the ALPS with our tools and imagined what life would have been like to live without buildings and home comforts! It was so cold and we were shocked when Miss Power explained that people wouldn't have had warm shoes... they would have been barefoot!!!! YIKES! 






Hello and Welcome back to Year 3s BLOG!!



This week in English we have been looking at the book Stone Age Boy again. We have loved learning more about the Stone Age and have even written a diary extract pretending we were there.



This week we have been looking at multiplication and division and looking at multiples of numbers! We are becoming experts with our x 2,5 and 10! Keep practicing these at home!



This week we have been rock detectives! We have searched around school for things made from rock or from a material containing rock. We then described some rocks and used magnifying glasses to see the small particles.



This week we have looked at a timeline from The Stone Age to the Iron Age. We have also learnt some super words like paleolithic, neolithic, mesolithic! Ask us what they mean!!!



Children in Need

A Huge thank you for all your kind donations today! The children look fabulous in their superhero costumes and fancy dress! 


Have a wonderful weekend and a good rest and we will see you bright and early Monday morning! 


Lots of love Year 3! xxxxx
