Welcome to the Year 3 area!
Here, you will find plenty of information about Year 3, including our curriculum; details of trips and visits, assemblies and performances; write-ups following visitors to our classes; examples of children's learning and lots of photographs and other useful and interesting links!
We are really looking forward to the year ahead, and know your child is going to have experiences in Year 3!

Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.
Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Kresen Kernow where they built on their learning of prehistoric Britain.
The children in year 3 have really impressed us with their wonderful innovations of the story ‘Black Dog’. In their writing, the children have included fronted adverbials, precise verbs, adjectives and dialogue between characters. We hope you enjoy reading their stories as much as the children enjoyed writing them.
Year 3 have been working on their final piece in art this week. They have worked hard to incorporate all of the pencil techniques they have developed over the term to create some stunning sketches of a still life.
Year 3 have enjoyed their P.E lesson outside in the autumn sunshine this week. They have been working hard on their ball skills and team work!
In science this week, year 3 have been learning about light and dark. We measured light levels in different locations around the school and collected our data for a class bar graph. We learned that light can come from many sources and that darkness is the absence of light.
Year 3 are thoroughly enjoying their weekly ukulele lessons with Jenny. They have learnt how to play 3 cords and will soon be applying this skill to a Christmas tune.
In art this week, we have been developing our drawing skills and techniques by using a variety of pencil effects to draw a portrait. We learned the basic proportions of the face and looked carefully at the light source so that we could create a 3D effect. We have some truly incredible artists in year 3!
This week, we have been innovating the story, Leon and the Place Between. The children have used a planning grid to guide them with each part of their own story. They all had so many imaginative and creative ideas! Great work, year 3!
In year 3 we have launched ‘Culture of the Heart’, a values based resource for primary schools. We have chosen character cards (one for each child in the class) and have been exploring using our character words during our classroom routine. The children thoroughly enjoyed using their character cards when hunting for treasure in their friends. Each child now has a heart or star filled with positive affirmations chosen for them.
The circus came to year 3 last week to launch our exciting new book, Leon and the Place Between! We enjoyed using our persuasive writing skills to entice people to come to the show. We created some fantastic posters whilst eating delicious popcorn under the colourful lights.
