Year 3 Summer 2 Overview








Lowry Art Workshop


Year Three have worked incredibly hard this half term developing their sketching, drawing and painting skills during our topic studying local artist L.S. Lowry. They ended the topic with a truly Fabulous Finish today; sharing their art techniques with parents and family and producing, yet again some fantastic pieces of art!


What a talented bunch of artists we have in Year Three...well done to the whole class for such amazing work, and thank you to all the family and friends who came to support them today.

Safer Internet Day 2018


Safer Internet Day aims to not only create a safer internet but also a better internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. 

Science Week!


This week for Science Week Year 3 will be investigating the link between germs and illnesses. We will explore bacteria, viruses, vaccinations and how to prevent illnesses and diseases.

We will find out about 'The Father of Germ Theory', Louis Pasteur and explore what role he played in developing modern medicine and the understanding we have today of germs and disease. 


Find out more about Louis Pasteur here





Germ Presentations

Using an app called Educreations we have presented what we have found out about bacteria, Louis Pasteur and how germs can make us ill.

This is our first time using the app so we had a few 'teething problems'

Please be patient with our technical difficulties; a few of the presentations have not yet uploaded.


From Pandas to Indian dancing, digital time to Rangoli; Year 3 have an action packed term ahead of them this Spring.

Stone Age Museum


Thank you to everyone who came to our Year 3 Stone Age museum on Wednesday afternoon. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and found out some interesting facts about the Stone Age.

We are so proud of the children who put a lot of effort into planning, preparing and delivering fantastic activities for the visitors to get involved in!  Well done Year 3!!


For Anti-Bullying Week we looked at how we are all different but all deserve the right to be treated equally no matter what.

We explored our differences and similarities and celebrated our uniqueness.

We worked in groups to write this poem about being different.

We have been reading 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt.

Inspired by this book we have written our own letters from unhappy and unappreciated objects in our classroom which have 'quit'! Check out our publish work on Pobble to see what demands and complaint our objects had.
