Year 3 will receive weekly spellings to learn and these will be tested in class on a Friday.

We have been using lots of different resources to help us learn maths in a fun and engaging way!

The Year 3 classes all performed their Nativities this week. The children performed brilliantly; voices were loud and clear, acting was enthusiastic, dancing was beautiful and the singing was fabulous. Teachers and all the adults who attended were very proud of them all!


Christmas Backdrop
We all enjoyed working as a team to make our Christmas Backdrop, taking turns and working together was really rewarding!



Harvest Sale
Year 3 held their Harvest Sale in the playground by their classes. We sold fresh produce, cakes and displayed the food we had donated for the food bank. Children shared their Harvest Prayers and took home the hummus recipe that they had tested and written during the week.
