Year 3 spent a fun and messy afternoon cave painting. After they had gathered berries, mud, sticks, leaves etc from around the school grounds, they had a go at making their own paint. They then used their fingers, sticks, feathers and charcoal to create their own cave paintings.

Year 3 spent time finding natural items around the school that would have helped them to have survived during the Stone Age.

Year 3 learnt Russian for European Day of Languages. We learnt how to write our name in the Cyrillic alphabet and learnt how to say please, thank you and hello. Mrs Hamill taught us how to have a conversation in Russian. In the afternoon we tried cold, beetroot soup and syrniki (Russian pancakes) made with cottage cheese.

Year 3 had a visit from Captain Chemistry. We set up an experiment to grow salt crystals and are waiting patiently to see what happens.

Year 3 had a visit from Captain Chemistry. We looked at different types of rocks and fossils, learnt about the rock cycle with the aid of a cheese toastie and made our own fossils.

Year 3 had a visit from Captain Chemistry. We investigated the different layers of soil and dug around in compost to see what organic matter we could find. We also found a lot of worms.

Year 3 had a great time trying out and improving their golf skills at Maiden Castle.

We pretended to be hunter-gatherers from the Stone Age. We went round school to see what natural things we could use to survive during the Stone Age.

Year 3 loved taking part in the Colour Run. Look how colourful we are!

Year 3 have started becoming TT Rockstars, by practising their times tables on the new iPads.

In Maths, we have been making 3-digit numbers with Base 10.

During the first week back, Year 3 read the book Silly Billy by Anthony Browne and made their own Worry Dolls to help settle into Year 3 and Key Stage 2.
