Welcome to Year 3

Who are we?

We are 7 and 8 year old pupils and we are the first class in Key Stage 2.  Throughout Year 3, we begin to take greater responsibility for our learning and ourselves. We are encouraged to develop our thinking and investigative skills to help us to learn and discover things on our own.

Who teaches us?

Mrs Houghton is our class teacher and Miss Foster teaches the class on a Thursday afternoon.

Mrs Glenwright, Mrs Cooper and Miss Richardson also support teaching and learning in Year 3.

What do we do?

In Year 3, we work with greater independence and increasing confidence. We are also expected to share our thoughts and ideas and to take responsibility for others. We help to look after some of the younger children in school and at the end of the year we look forward to meeting our ‘buddies’ in the Nursery class and introducing them to the main part of the school.

Our topics this year are:

Autumn Term – Food, Glorious Food!, Extreme Earth

Spring Term – Stones and Bones, The Romans

Summer Term – Digging deep, Brilliant Brazil  

DT Project

As part of our DT project - 'The Great Bread Bake Off',  we practised our bread shaping skills! We watched tutorials by Great British Bake Off judge, Paul Hollywood, and used salt dough to make round rolls, knots and other shapes!

Autumn Art Work

This half term we have been looking at the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo. For our Harvest craft, we are working towards creating self portraits - using Arcimboldo's Autumn Portrait as inspiration! We thought about food and objects which have Autumnal colours, and practised drawing these before designing our own portraits.
