We are proud of Year Three!


This week has been full of engaging learning opportunities for Year Three…

In English, we have continued to explore Emma Fischel’s spooky narrative, The Gorgle. We are very impressed by the imagination, creativity and commitment of the children. They have worked hard to perfect and improve their own story writing – each piece of work has been exciting to read!


In Maths, the children have enjoyed learning how to use the expanded column method. They have had lots of success when adding together the prices of different items, even in the context of tricky word problems. Well done, Year Three!

Keep up the good work, we can’t wait to see more of your excellent Bronze Age home learning.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Honeywell and Mr Austin

A busy week of learning!


This week the children have enjoyed lots of exciting learning opportunities across the Year Three curriculum.

In English, we have been exploring Emma Fischel’s The Gorgle and the children have enjoyed making creative, spooky sentences to describe the haunted house! Over the week, it is clear to see how the children have acquired a firm understanding of a range of sentence types. Well done Year Three!

In Maths, the children have been collecting data and then presenting their information on a bar chart. We have looked at why data is important and how we can interpret our results. Perhaps the children could try collecting data over the weekend, to find out more about a hobby or sport that interests them…

In Science, we have looked at different types of rock – igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic – and have even taken part in some experiments to test the physical properties of each rock type.

We are very impressed with the children’s Bronze Age home learning so far – keep up the good work, Year three!

Wishing you all a great weekend,

Miss Honeywell and Mr Austin.

Our new half term



We have had a successful start to our new half term with the children coming back with a great attitude to their learning. We have continued to challenge ourselves to keep improving our learning.

In our maths we have been exploring measuring in cm and mm, including measuring the perimeter. As a good way to continue in practicing this learning, why not try measuring the things in your bedroom or in your kitchen?

In our Literacy we have been learning about how to organize our notes and learning using headings and subheadings. Look out in your home and see which books you have that use headings and subheadings.

Next week we will be learning about Remembrance Day and the importance of the poppy. We hope that the children will take the time to talk to you about what they learn about Remembrance Day and the continued importance that this has.

We look forward to seeing you at parent’s evening!
