    Welcome to our Year 3 page, we are looking forward to working together on lots of interesting topics this year. On this page you will be able to find information about the Year 3 curriculum and about any exciting news or upcoming events that we are part of throughout the year.

    You will be able to find our half-termly study webs to the right of this page, and you can use these to find out about each of the different topics that we will be studying. We’ll also post any letters home here, to help you keep track of what’s going on. We really appreciate all of the hard work that you put into helping us learn too, and if you have anything to share or if you have concerns that you wish to discuss with one of our class teachers, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can make an appointment through the School Office or speak to us on the playground at the end of the day.

    Autumn 1st half term in Year 3

    Autumn second half term

    During Autumn 2, we had the pleasure of visiting the Lady Lever Art Gallery. This was linked to our continued study of the ‘Pre-Raphaelite’ art movement. The children thoroughly enjoyed this visit and recreating some of the artists’ work.
    We also explored ‘Forces and Magnets’ in our science study. One of our favourite investigations was which car would travel best on which surface. We discovered that out of sandpaper, foam, carpet and wood, wood was the best surface, as it caused less friction on the wheels of the car!
    In maths, we have had lots of fun utilising our manipulatives to represent numbers in different ways and to help us problem solve, which we loved! In English, we looked at mysteries and how a cliff hanger can get you on the edge of your seat. We also used our inference skills to delve into an image and create a story from it. We each saw something different in the image and loved hearing each other’s ideas.
    Finally, to get us all into the Christmas spirit, we made a stocking in D.T. This was extremely tricky, as it was the first time many of us had used our sewing skills, but perseverance paid off and they all turned out wonderful!
    What a great half term we had!
