Year 3

This week we've been learning about WImbledon! When it started, about the courts and lots more. Today we wrote a non-chronological report about the championships and before we went home we ate strawberries and cream!

Whilst learning about the Vikings we went outside and looked at a Map of Britain and how various different Viking rulers ruled over Scotland and England from 793 AD

Viking Day! Here are a few pictures of some of the things we got up to throughout Viking Day

World In Union

The Little Fish That Got Away

The Big Bad Lad Of The Ocean


The Lighthouse

I got rythm

On 19th June Year 3 took part in Festival of Voices. Here are some of the pictures of the children at Dorchester Abbey and some of them in action, singing. They were all fantastic and did the school and myself really proud.

This half term in Year 3 we've been learning about light. Today we used the good weather to our advantage and got out some mirrors to look at reflection. We bent light around the classroom and wrote messages on mirrors and noticed how we have to write them in order for them to be understood.

Today in Year 3 we had a Dogs trust assembly and workshop where we learnt about appropriate behaviours as well as the needs of dogs. Here is what we got up to.

This half term we're learning about light. Today we've tested certain materials and whether they reflect light or not.

Below are the songs that Class 3 will be performing at the Festival of Voices in June. Over the next few weeks the children will be getting song books to take home so that they can learn the lyrics to these songs. In the meantime, feel free to enjoy singing them at your own leisure!

Last week we looked at the various different jobs that the Anglo-Saxons had in their villages. Children go into groups then researched their chosen job before presenting it to the rest of the class.

Medium Term Plan Summer Term

Zara and Emily's Expieriment

Children in Year 3 were asked to heat various different materials and see what happened.. Here is an example of what happened when we heated a metal.

This week for British Science week we had Science Oxford into visit us. They led a workshop which involved children heating up things like water, salt water, sugar, soap and various metals. Here's what we got up to...

As its British Science week this week Nicola Dunne (a surgeon) came to visit us and taught us all about healthy living and how basic first aid is really important. A special mention to Charles for saving Mr Reeves!

Having learnt about the Easter story this half term we've been eating some Hot Cross Buns when we looked at Good Friday!

Today we celebrated World Book Day by pairing with a Year 1 child and reading stories we enjoy and listening to stories the Year 1 children enjoyed, and here are some pictures of the event.

As we're coming up to Easter we've been learning about the Easter story. This week we learnt about the Last Supper and wrote some excellent pieces of writing and drunk some Bread and Squash just like in the Last Supper

As we've been looking at how pollen spreads from plant to plant we looked at some acting out of the pollination process, and here are our pictures!

Planting seeds. As we're studying about plants this half term, we decided to plant some seeds to see which conditions that they will grow in. Here are some of the pictures of us planting our seeds.

Today in Class we've written Haiku poems about Christmas. A Haiku is a short poem which consists of three lines. The first and last line have 3 syllables and the middle line has seven syllables. The children have produced some lovely work and here are some examples of their work:

At the Oxford Museum of Science

After learning all about Electricity in Science we took a trip to the Oxford Science Museum and the Oxford Natural History Museum. Here are a few of the amazing things we found on our trip.

Last week we learnt about the symbols of Christian Christmas at Church Hanborough. We learnt about the Christmas story and that all we know about the story might not be true.

In Science we've been learning about friction and how it effects motion of objects. We conducted a science experiment using cars on various materials testing how much the friction affects the cars when in motion.

Class 3's trip to the River Evenlode. We visited the river and conducted Science experiments about how deep the river was, how quickly it flowed as well as looking at what sort of wildlife lived in the river.

This half term we've been programming on Scratch. We looked at making sprites move, change direction and even speak. Here we are hard at work.

Handwriting line guide - some parents have asked about line guides. Here is a version of line guides like we use in school for your child to practice should you wish them to. Hope this is helpful. Thick black lines are the bottom of the line and the two lines are above so the letters can be created at the right height.

Class 3 Weather Presenters. We've been learning about the Tropics this week in Geography. We researched a country and presented the weather to the class of the weather in that country.

Class 3 have been learning about how circuits work and whether items are conductors or insulators. Here are some of the pictures of us experimenting.

Welcome to Year Three's section of the website. This is a great place for children to access materials, that enable them to practise spelling. For everyone else, it is a place where we can share our learning and experiences with you!



  • PE kits should be brought into school on Monday and taken home on Friday. 
  • Homework will be set on a Wednesday and handed in the following Monday.
  • Spellings form part of the homework. However these will be set on a Wednesday and tested on a Tuesday. These can be found on this page along with audio transcriptions so children can practise independently.



Our topic for the Autumn Term 2017 is 'The Iron Man'. A curriculum map can be found under 'Parents- our curriculum- curriculum maps'
