Year 3 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Year 3


As of today (18th March) we are starting our Year 3 Spelling Bee. Information about this is in your child's English homework folder. 


All the children will now have a reading book, these are to be brought into school  every day.  Please continue to listen to your child read regularly, discuss the book and sign their reading record. 



Maths  - sent home on Wednesday, return by the following Monday.

English - sent home Friday, return by the following Wednesday.



Our days for P.E are Monday and Friday. The children are now swimming on a Friday so they will need to bring their swimming kit on this day. Please make sure your child comes to school in their school P.E kit on Monday and uniform on a Friday.  This must consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts and their school jumper.   We will be outside for P.E in most weather conditions so your child can wear black jogging bottoms if needed. 


We have been thinking about internet safety in class.

The Year 3 children had an amazing Roman sleepover at Birdoswald Roman Fort. 

Here are the first batch!!

More photos to be added over the next few days! 

All aboard!

We arrived at Housesteads Roman Fort and needed a drink and a snack!

Some of us found a Roman sponge on a stick and thought about what it was used for in Roman times.....

We had to walk up a big hill,  in the rain, to get to the fort at the top...

A quick picnic lunch...

Tea time!

We made  fantastic pop-up books all about volcanoes

In Geography we learned about volcanoes. 

We used the computer to make the front cover and introduction page. 

We wrote interesting  information to stick into our books.

We used our skills in Design and Technology to make our books POP!

We thought about forces as we made our 'Springy Monsters'

Look at our super volcano drawings using pen and pastel.

Biscuit Henge!

Using biscuits, we recreated Stone Henge. We had a great time making them and it was even better when we could eat them! 

We talked about different theories to explain why Stonehenge was built and thought about how it was built. 

FEBRUARY DISPLAYS 2022 Just some of our lovely work on display in class.


We have been learning about Stonehenge. Take a virtual tour on the link below! 

We made milk carton mammoths with funky hairstyles!

Milk carton woolly mammoths!

We looked really closely at rocks with a microscope


We used plaster of Paris to make our own fossils! Can you see which prehistoric animals we used?

We made our own fossils!


We washed our prehistoric animals and then wrote instructions on how to do it!

We worked so hard to design and make Christmas stockings. What a lot of sewing we had to do!

Skeletons from dog biscuits!

Egyptian collars 

We designed and created our own Ancient Egyptian collars. These were worn by all Egyptians to dress up simple robes. 

Egyptian afternoon with Professor Tuesday

Professor Tuesday came and spent a fantastic afternoon with us talking all about Ancient Egypt.  We learnt about the history of Egypt, the top fab 5 Pharaohs,  what jobs people did and also how some people tried to destroy Egypt.

We created a human time line,  and mummified a body!

We all had a great time. 

This is some work from last year.

As part of our work on 'Light' we thought about how to make sure that Santa could be seen at night to stay safe!

Look how reflective these outfits are. Santa could definitely stay safe wearing these! 



It looks like the children in Year 3 Willow have enjoyed producing work for their Egyptian homework! 

Have a look at some of the wonderful work that we have seen so far! 

Abi did a great job of describing what her canopic jars were for.

Look closely at Luke's pyramid. He has included so much detail. The cake pyramid looks lovely!

Anna thought carefully about what it might look like inside an Egyptian tomb

Tom worked so hard on his Pharaoh's pyramid and even included smaller ones for the Queens!

Look at the detail in Parker's lego model of the Nile, pyramid and Sphinx!
