Year 3 have been enjoying reading The 13 Storey Treehouse. This week they have written playscripts and acted them out.  They did a fantastic job! 

Can you spot the flying cat?

Chris Connaughton

We had a fantastic day when Chris Connaughton came to visit us.  He performed the well-known myth ‘Perseus and the Gorgons’ and we were all enthralled.  Just look at some of our faces when we realised how the myth was going to end.  Year 3 wrote some brilliant letters and diary entries in role as some of the characters.

We are all enjoying doing music with Mr Roberts from St. Nicholas’ Cathedral this term.  Not only are we learning lots of new songs, some of them are even in Latin!  Performing songs in a round is not easy, but Year 3 are doing brilliantly.  Following the conductor is essential and some of us have even led the class in our singing.  We are also beginning to control the way sounds are made through our breathing.

Centre for Life Visi

This week we have had a fantastic time at the Centre for Life.    We explored the Curiosity Zone and the Brain Zone which were really interesting.  We got to use the equipment available and test out some of our scientific theories.

It was the last chance to see the Dino Jaws exhibition so we made the most of it.  Not only did we see lots of robotic dinosaurs, we also learned lots of interesting facts too.

The science show was all about the gases that exist all around us.  We covered our ears in anticipation of some of the bangs!

Exploding Volcanoes – Science experiment

img_0575 img_0582

Children in year three have enjoyed experimenting with friction. The classroom became Brands Hatch as the children rolled race cars along different surfaces. They were experts at measuring and timing the results!

We had great fun doing PE and exploring our new multi skill playground markings.  We discovered that there were so many games we could play which meant we were active and having lots of fun too.

 Enjoying the Snow!

We had great fun in the snow!  As part of our Extreme Earth topic we took the temperature of the snow and then did it again when it had melted.  We decided to take the snowman’s temperature too!


As part of our Blast from the Past topic, we have been studying the Anglo Saxons.  This week we have been making Anglo Saxon jewellery made from clay.  We really enjoyed exploring the clay, moulding it into the right shape and then using the special tools to add lots of intricate detail.

Last week was ‘Anti Bullying Week’ and Year Three thoroughly enjoyed the workshop we had.  The key word was respect and we worked in groups and performed for each other showing how we respect each other.

Roman Day

What fabulous Romans we have in year 3.  A huge thank you to all parents, carers and grandparents who helped with costumes to make the day a memorable one.

Roman Fort

Year 3 went to Arbeia Roman Fort to learn more about life in Roman times.  We explored the ruins in our groups and learned some interesting facts.  We also took part in a workshop in the ‘Time Quest’ room where we became archaeologists.  This was really good fun and we uncovered lots of Roman artefacts.  We’re already looking forward to ‘Roman Day’ next month!
