Let it Shine - WOW!
To introduce our new topic, Let it Shine, we took part in Light, Colour and Dance with Charlotte Anderson, a qualified dance teacher. We loved dancing in the dark with disco lights and glow sticks!
Welcome back! It is lovely to see you all looking so smart in your full uniforms. Remember, your Always badge is part of your uniform and should be worn every day.
We are looking forward to all the exciting learning we will be doing in the coming weeks. Have a look at our overview below to find out what we will be doing.
We will have a P.E. lesson every Monday and Thursday. We recommend that you keep your P.E. kit in your locker for the full half term. Please remember your P.E. kit is part of your school uniform and should consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.

In their P.E. lessons Year 3 have been learning about orienteering. They learned how to read maps and then used them to navigate around the school and the playground.
We have been solving problems using addition and subtraction. We used place value grids, counters and base ten apparatus to help us solve the problems.
We have been learning about forces. We planned an experiment and investigated how far a vehicle would travel on different surfaces.
Amazing Homework Projects
As part of their topic, Poles Apart, Year 3 have been learning all about magnets. Take a look at some of the amazing homework projects that the children have created using magnets.
Year 3 have been voting for their school councillors. The candidates gave speeches in class before we cast our votes in the hall.
We have been using our new Chromebooks to learn about what a strong password is and how to create one. We used a website to check how strong our passwords are.
WOW - Poles Apart
To introduce their new topic, Poles Apart, the children in Year 3 had a wonderful time experimenting with magnets. They played games, learned tricks and are looking forward to learning more about magnets in the coming weeks.
Take a look at some of our fantastic learning from the past year.
During Year 3, we have had an amazing time learning about how the past has influenced the future in relation to our ‘Groovy Greeks’ topic. We excelled in our very own ‘Boundary Olympic Games’ where we were split into four nations and competed to win the title. The winners were ‘USA’ with Finley as their captain. Cheering each other on, we showed how we are ‘Always’ children who show many of the schools’ characteristics.
From ‘Forces’ to ‘Light’ to ‘Animals including humans’ we have learnt a variety of scientific topics where we learnt how to use an investigative mind to help set up experiments to aid our subject knowledge. In Maths, we have shown that we are resilient in learning new things and how to be perseverant when faced with challenging tasks. During our Reading Into Writing journeys we have written a range of genres and particularly enjoyed our journey of writing following a story that Dan Worsley had written especially for us. We enjoyed listening to him telling a story and how to recreate our own version of it. We spent the morning retelling our stories to Dan, where we wore his waistcoat and acted in his role as an author.
We have all thoroughly enjoyed Year 3 and we can’t wait to see what challenges await us Year 4.
