Spring Half Term 1 Curriculum Overview

A snippet of our French lesson with Mrs Costello

Year 3 were very excited to receive a letter from Buckingham Palace, thanking them for sending 70th Anniversary wishes to the Queen and Prince Philip.

Ho, ho, ho! Santa's Snacks are ready to go!

Me and my shadow! In the style of Picasso!

Our silhouettes were used as a start for our art. We also used them to make optical illusions. Guess who's who!

Year3's card for The Queen and Prince Philip.


Artefacts from relatives,

 Present and past.

Recognising their sacrifice,

And making it last!


Letting the light shine through our work!

Light and shadows  were such fun,

There were lots of experiments to be done.

Shining torches up and down,

Caused different sized shadows to be found.

Blocking the light and watching our eyes,

"Wow that's amazing!" were our cries!



Guess Who?

We used our shadow as a starting point for our Art.

We've titled it, 'Me and my shadow, In the style of Picasso!'

Pop in and see what we did in Year 3.



Year 3  were fortunate in being able to have  Cricket coaching sessions from Mark Cookson for a full half term.

We batted and balled, ran and caught.

Cricket is fun, we all thought.

Playing as a team and working together.

We were lucky with  very fine weather.

Thanks to Mark we have improved our technique,

We now wonder what's in-store for us next week!

Data Handling in Maths

Shaping up with Maths

Orienteering in the Autumn Term

Running around and finding treasure,

Gave us all lots of pleasure.

Phil hid it well, but we found it all,

It ranged from cones to cricket balls.

When our time came to hide it too,

We knew what we had to do.

We hid it in the garden,

We hid it under leaves.

We hid it round the climbing frame,

And we hid it in the trees.
