Christmas maths

In Y3 we’re doing Christmas themed maths this week! For the past few days we’ve been measuring and drawing straight lines to make Christmas trees…

…and today we’re using our times table and division skills to find hidden Christmas pictures!


Fab finish

Here’s some photos of Y3AEs fabulous finish afternoon! Everyone had a fantastic time and it was lovely to see so many grown ups ready to get stuck in and get messy with us!

Y3 Fab finish!

We’ve had a great afternoon in Year 3 today and had a great turn out from the parents!

You all got stuck in to the various art activities that were going on and produced some great cave art.

We made Stone Age necklaces, cave art drawings and hand prints!

Thank you to everyone who came, the kids were amazing and worked so hard, we all had a great afternoon!

Calendar making

This afternoon in Y3, we’ve been adding to our calendars. We’ll be showing the change in seasons. All the teachers have been so impressed with how much care we are taking over them! We hope you’ll love them!


This week in Y3, we are finishing off our recounts of our fantastic trip to Creswell Crags. We’ve spent today learning how to edit and improve writing so are now working in pairs to edit and improve our writing. We’ve worked really hard to include time adverbs, correct spellings and conjunctions.

All the staff in Y3 are so proud of how much we’ve improved already since the beginning of Y3!

Creswell Crags

What an amazing time we had at Creswell Crags! We explored some deep, dark caves and had a look at how people would have lived back then. We did a mini archaeological dig and sorted all our finds into different categories. We also learnt some survival skills – you need to follow the animals poo to find it – yuck!

Maths magic

A big well done to the whole of Y3AE today because EVERYONE in class has improved their CLIC test scores!

Here’s the seven people who got 11/11.. wow!

A big well done to the following children too, who got either 9 or 10 out of 11, so are very close to full marks!










Superstars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Choose respect

This week is anti-bullying week and in Y3 we are exploring the theme ‘choose respect’ by having circle time all about what we think it means to respect each other. We’re turning our thoughts into posters and of course we’ve had a good old dance to Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’!
