We have used atlases to locate Egypt and its major cities and learnt about Egyptian culture. We have also been  learning about the River Nile and how it was important to the Ancient Egyptians, exploring mummification and getting creative making our very own Usekh (collar/necklace). In Maths, we have been adding and subtracting in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and exploring different 3D pyramids.


This half term, we are exploring Canada. We have been researching different animals, exploring landmarks and cities within Canada. We have been reading about Canada Day and writing are own sports commentaries. In Artis, we are learning, singing and writing world cup songs. Some of the children have brought in real pictures and souvenier of places in Canada because they have or know someone who lives there. This has been really helpful because it has taught us lot's of interesting facts. By Hollie and Issac

Family of School's Conference

Year 3 had a fantastic day performing at the Family of School's conference at the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford in front of lot's of teachers, head teachers and deputy head teachers. The children did a brilliant job at remembering all of their actions and song lyrics! Well Done!


Today in P.E we did Yoga. We did a shark activity where sharks had to catch us before we got to a mat and stood in our tree position. We also lay down in silence with our eyes closed and listened to a story about a Ladybird. The ladybird sometimes landed on your body, it was very relaxing. I really liked the shark game because it was really fun and active. We enjoy team games!By Leeson and Ava (Year 3)

Flying back in time to The Stone Age

We have been very busy this week creating our own Stone Age cave and Stonehenge paintings!  For this, we researched actual paintings found in caves and chose our favorite designs.  Using our designs, we painted our cave art on to our rough surface using a variety of Stone Age methods!  Some of us used our fingers, whilst some of us used a thin stick brush.  We think our artwork is amazing!

The Amazing Amazon

This half term, we are exploring the Amazing Amazon Rainforest. We have started the term by decorating our classroom with leaves, tree vines and Amazon animals bringing the jungle to Year 3's classroom. In English, we have researched Amazon animals and explored and wrote our own poems in the style of Paul Hess. We have begun reading and exploring 'How the Crocodile got his bumpy back', and How the Rhinoceros got his skin'. Next week, we will begin planning and writing our own 'How the' stories.
