Our school council members are: Georgia and Alex.

Our class worship leaders are: Lucas and George

Our eco-council members are: Scarlett, Amelia and Katie

Our science ambassadors are: Chloe and Alby.


Classroom Environment

We love to have fun whilst we learn in Year Three so it is not uncommon to find us working hard with music on in the background. We also love singing and dancing and put our skills to good use when we are learning our times tables. Lots of us are also part of the school choir and love preforming some of our favourite songs.

Exercise in Year Three

We have a PE afternoon on a Monday and a second PE session on a Wednesday afternoon for this reason we ask that full indoor and outdoor PE kit is brought into school on a Monday and kept in school until Wednesday.  

In class we also love taking part in Zumba and try to do a short Zumba session at least three times a week.

We now do skipping every day to help keep up our fitness.


We need to read our reading books as much as possible and we get rewards for this in class.

We also have home handwriting books that should be completed at least three times a week.

Children may wish to practise their spellings in their handwriting books to achieve both activities in one go. Children are also asked to play on their Times Table Rockstars account every week.



During the Autumn term our topic is Rotten Romans. We will be learning all about who the Romans are, where they came from and how they have impacted upon our lives today. 



Our science topics for Autumn term are 'Forces and Magnets' and 'Light'. We love conducting experiments in Year Three and are currently building up our skills by designing our own to try and prove our hypothesis. 


Lots of us also love to join the Science Ambassadors at lunch time to do extra investigations and experiments.

Forest School 

During the last half of the autumn term we will be having forest school on a Thursday afternoon. We need to have a full change of clothes, a warm coat and outdoor footwear in school every Thursday to make sure that we can take part in this exciting opportunity. 

Roman Inspire Morning 

We have been lucky enough to be able to invite our parents and carers into school to help us with some exciting roman projects. Take a look at our pictures below!

We even used the green screen to help us travel to Rome and become real roman soldiers!

Murton Park

We have just been on a fantastic visit to Murton Park. See photographs of our adventures below!
