Year 3 Visit to Leeds Castle

We spent a fantastic day at Leeds castle.

After visiting the castle itself, we traveled by boat

across the lake, explored the adventure playground

and left enough time to enjoy an ice cream before returning

to school! 


Class Mass

Father Victor visited year 3 to lead our class Mass.

The children sang and shared readings and prayers.

Thank you to Father Victor and to family members who 

were able to attend.

Drumming Workshop

As part of a week of events to celebrate and learn about

the differing cultures which make up our school community,

year 3 took part in a drumming workshop.

They learned how to create different sounds and rhythms, using djembe drums.

I wonder whether our taller classmates jump

further distances than our shorter ones?

This was the question posed for our comparative investigation,

during our learning in science this afternoon.

We used the measurement skills developed in maths,

to measure heights and distances jumped, accurately in cm and m,

using tape measures and metre sticks.

Brazilian Samba!

 A visiting dance teacher, led a fantastic

workshop and taught the class a sequence 

of moves to perform a Samba routine.

Here are year 3, performing their finished dance to the school.

Well done, everyone! no

Our Class 'Pet'!

A surprise parcel arrived for the class...

Here we are, getting acquainted with our

pet sloth, Sparky!

Year 3 have created some inventive and informative science posters!

They enjoyed sharing what they had found out and celebrating their hard work.


Poos from the Past!

During science week, year 3 had some serious business (ahem!)  to attend to!

The children became paleontologists and worked in teams to excavate

and search a fossil of a human poo to find clues which would help

them to identify which period of history it belonged to.


Each team demonstrated superb exploring skills.

Lots of fun and giggles were had, along the way!

There was a special surprise for Raphael... 

He was delighted to play Mrs Father's ukulele,

which happened to be decorated with a picture of

his most favourite super hero: Spiderman!

Going For Gold!

Year 3 enjoyed the visit from British Olympic sprinter, Dina Asher-Smith.

They listened carefully and were inspired by her determination, discipline and commitment to achieve her best.



I get by with a little help from my friends...!

We couldn't resist capturing these members of the class,

supporting each other during their maths learning.

We love to see learners encouraging and helping each other!


World Faiths Week: Judaism

During our RE learning this week, we have been

developing our understanding of the Jewish faith.

We learned a song called: Heiveinu Shalom Aleichem,(May peace

come to all of you) which is often performed on the Sabbath.

Here are year 3 performing the song in a

mixture of Hebrew and English words...

used these to design windows for a synagogue.

We had a lot of fun, comparing and grouping common

rocks, during our science learning.

The children took part in the 'Hard Rock Challenge' and

worked in teams to describe the properties of the rocks.


Friction Fun!

Year 3 worked together in groups, to investigate and  compare

the effect of different surfaces, on the motion of a toy car.
