Year 3

Mrs S Soan, Mrs J Thompson & Mrs M Casey

Welcome to Year 3


In Year 3 we learn about exciting topics which include the Ancient Greeks and the Stone Age and these involve educational visits to Durham University.

In English we look at range of texts including those by David Walliams, The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and Stig of the Dump by Clive King.

In Maths we learn our four and eight times table as well as learning how to count in 50s.  We learn to tell the time by reading Roman Numerals and learn about angles and which ones are more or less than a right angle.  We develop our calculation skills by learning how to carry out column addition and subtraction.

We have PE with Mr Evans.




The children in year 3 have been working extremely hard with their handwriting in all of their written work.  Some of us find it trickier than others, including Mrs Thompson, and some of us get tired hands when we are writing lots of super sentences....

Ancient Greek Temples

We have had great fun creating our own Greek landscapes using tissue paper and then designing a Greek template from art straws and placing this on top of our landscape.  There are lots of great artists and designers in Year 3. [gallery...

Arts Award Celebration Event!

As Year 3 recently passed the Explore Arts Award, the boys and girls were invited along to the Discovery Museum for a celebration event as the Arts Award turned ten this year! All of the Year 3 children received a special certificate acknowledging their achievement and they also performed a piece of their finished project for quite a large audience! As part of this celebration event, the children had the opportunity to explore the facilities and exhibits available at the Discovery Museum and they also got to take part in a range of arts and craft projects. This was a really enjoyable day for all of the children and the perfect way to end our Arts Award experience!

Spellings, 8th July 2016

As it is the last week of term, this weeks spellings are solely focused on the Year 3/4 word list. The words that we have covered in Year 3 are on the attached document and during next week the children’s knowledge of these words will be randomly tested. There is no reason for the children to panic as these words will be covered again in Year 4, however it will be good for them to see what they already know before they begin Year 4 in September!

Prehistory in Year 3!

As part of our topic work based around the Stone Age, the boys and girls in Year 3 recently went on a visit to Durham University for a visit to explore prehistory a little further. Whilst at the university, we looked at the three main periods of the Stone Age which...

Arts Award Sharing Event!

A huge thank you to all of the families and friends who came along to the Year 3 Arts Award Sharing event. The boys and girls in Year 3 have been working extremely hard over the past few months as they explored various art forms. As part of the project they had to devise a performance to present to a live audience, showcasing some of the things that they have learnt throughout the project. All of the children fully committed themselves to the performance and it is so refreshing to see how each child in the class has developed in terms of their confidence and willingness to try new things as they have progressed through the project. This sharing event allowed the boys and girls to show their arts award journals which tracked their journey as they explored the arts. The ability to reflect on their journey with other people is a main element in ensuring that the children complete the award successfully, so again we would like to thank all those who came along and made that possible!

Felting at the Shipley Art Gallery

As part of Year 3's Arts Award project, we had the opportunity of exploring the arts venue that is the Shipley Arts Gallery. Whilst at the gallery, we got to meet members of staff who told us all about the history of the gallery as well as showing us around the...
