Rapid Reasoning

Rapid Reasoning 


In 3LR the children have been exploring mass through using scales. Today the children had to reason to their partner about their findings. The children have been working really hard to collaborate in teams or pairs to solve Bob's mistakes. You can see how eager they became in their reasoning and took turns to tell Bob how he could fix his mistakes. 

Personal Development

Personal Development 


Year 3 have been working on becoming confident speakers and being able to lead the class in their own game. The children have worked hard to agree on a set of rules. Each member had a part in the creation of the game and children encouraged each other. The children enjoyed playing this as a team and developed the skill of speaking clearly and audiable with each other. 

Being a scientist 


This week year 3 have been working to investigate the needs of a plant. The children explored how they could make the test fair and recorded their results. The children will be eager to tell you about this!

Understanding Ourselves


Year 3 have been looking at strategies to help them deal with any worries they may face. The children have been supportive of each other and shared ideas on how to help with their worries. Year 3 have been developing their speaking and listening skills. Children have been promoting manners and mutual respect for each other. 

Working through our worries

This Week, Year 3 have been looking at what plants need to grow. We had so much fun planting cress seeds!

Bird Feeders

Year 3 have been busy designing a product for our local wildlife. The children have developed new skills using the school kitchen. All children were able to slice, weigh and create nutritious food for our local wildlife during the long winter months. The children reflected on their designs and evaluated their success. To reduce our impact on the local enviroment the children used recycled materials.

Year 3 Loved <3 attending Church for Christmas!

This week, Year 3 attended church to sing a variety of songs to celebrate the festival of Christmas. They sang their hearts out and it sounded beautiful. They sang 'It was on a Starry Night', 'Little Donkey' and 'Silent Night'. I'm sure if you ask your child, they would be happy to perform a rendition of their top tune :) 

Readings from our School Councillors - Lama, Taylor and Alana

This Is How Year 3 Calm and Relax!




Year 3 have been doing some Yoga whilst listening to our favourite stories. First, we have listened to Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and on our second session, Alice in Wonderland. 

How are faiths similar?

This week, Year 3 had the pleasure of having faith leaders in from our local Mosque and Church. We were given the opportunity to ask questions about their faith and how they remember different celebrations and festivals. Year 3 had a wonderful time exploring the different celebrations and how it effects people of faith. 

Year 3's Subtraction Work

Year 3 have worked super hard in solving questions involving subtraction. We can now use counters to show how subtraction can be calculated.

Being a Team Player 


Year 3 have been working on our ability to support and help each other when faced with a challenge. Today the children have worked in a team to help them build positive learning relationships. The children had to move themselves across the hall without letting go of their hoop or ball. Through this the children had to be effective communicators and direct their team as well as listen to instructions.

Place Value 


Using our mathematical equipment Year 3 have been exploring how to partition 3 digit numbers, count in 100s, 50s, 4s and 8s. We have spotted patterns and worked together to help each other when we have been stuck. We are able to exchange and regroup hundreds, tens, and ones to enable use to make 1000.  

Being a Geographer! We can name the features of a river and make our own.
