Year 3

Welcome to Year 3



The Spring term just bounced by in class 3!


Everyone loved learning about the Romans and visiting Colchester Castle. It was amazing to be able to go underneath the Castle and see all the artifacts around the museum. We all enjoyed dressing up for the Roman day in school and taking part in lots of activities. The children made Roman mosaics, designed a Roman banquet, tasted different foods and marched in the class 3 army!


The children practised and performed brilliantly in the class assembly and we were very proud of all their hard work. They spoke clearly, remembered all their lines and sang beautifully about Boudicca.


In Science the children learned about plants. A number of investigations were carried out to see what affects plant growth. It was interesting to see how the leeks soaked up the food colouring.


Everyone enjoyed the Rugby sessions where we improved our hand- eye coordination, tackling skills and leanrt more about the game.


In English we read and enjoyed performing plays. Then wrote our own and performed them to the rest of the class. We had to work together as a group to make our performance perfect!


The first half of the Summer term has been jammed packed already! We have been enjoying swimming lessons again on a Monday and the children have improved their strokes.


In DT the children have made fantastic photo frames which now display a specially created picture. The children carefully painted and assembled their frames.


We have been continuing our French work and the children enjoyed learning the names for classroom objects and colours. They have also learned to say how old they are.


The highlight of the Summer term so far was meeting and interviewing Spiderman. The children then wrote detailed reports about their favourite super hero or villain.


Thank you to the parents and carers for all their help with homework, reading and spellings and to the parents who help in school hearing children read and filing. It is always appreciated.


We are all looking forward to the second half of the summer term.
