Year 3

Hello! Welcome to Term 5!

We hope you have had a restful Easter break.

We are excited to start our new swimming lessons this term at Henbury Leisure Centre! These will take place on Thursday mornings. We will take a coach down to the pool where children will follow the centre’s Covid safety protocols. This means children will have to arrive at school on Thursday’s wearing their swimming costumes under their clothes. Please also provide a bag, towel and spare underwear for when the children get out and get changed. No bikins or long (knee length) shorts are allowed and please ensure you child does not have earrings or jewellery on. Your child can bring goggles. The sessions are lots of fun and are led by a very experienced team. It is a fantastic opportunity for your child!

Weekly homework will include a set of 10 spellings which will be tested on Fridays. Children will also be expected to read at home 3x per week and to practice their focus times table of the week.

Hello and welcome to Year 3! Here you will find updates of what is happening in our classroom and around the school.

Forces and magnetism

We have been exploring how magnets work this term and the children have really enjoyed learning all about forces and magnetism.

Here are some pictures from our yummy Christmas dinner.

We took part in scootability this week. We enjoyed learning how to stay safe and even some tricks…

We have been studying the BFG and today we made our own frobscottle! Some found it delicious, others not so much… 

We then went on to write our own revolting recipes involving slugs, rats and other disgusting ingredients! 


This term we have learnt about the Djembe drum. We took part in a workshop and afterwards we designed our own Djembe drum.

Dragons Sightings!

We have kicked this term of with a sizzle! The children were greeted by strange goings on in class. Dragon skulls, mystery eggs and a strange book named “Dragonology”. We have spent some time learning about dragons. The children have created the own dragon wanted posters, drawn dragon eyes, found where different dragons live on a world map and even created their own dragon eye out of clay! Keep your eyes open for any strange sightings in the local area…
