Welcome to Year 3 - Miss Maughan & Mr Donaldson

April

We are now into our final term of Year 3. We have started our ‘Amazing Aztecs’ topic and will have plenty to show you very soon.

In PE, we have been lucky enough to start learning how to play tennis and tag rugby, as well as continuing on with our weekly swimming lessons.

March

Due to the snow, Miss Maughan’s class have only just performed their class assembly. Thank you to parents and carers for your patience and for supporting us. We hope it was worth the wait!

We have completed our sports relief challenge. So far, we have raised over £1000 so far by walking, skipping and running 1KM, as well as our 3KM walk around the village. Thank you for parents and carers who sponsored us.

World Book Day was a huge success. Although a week late, we enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters from books and celebrating something that we all love doing....READING!!!

February

Our topic, Healthy Me, has taught us plenty about what our bodies need to stay fit and healthy. We have been combining PE and Science in order to find out about how our bodies function and what we need to do to look after ourselves to be as fit and as healthy as we can be.

Thank you to parents and carers who came to Mr Donaldson’s assembly, even though it was snowing! We hope you enjoyed seeing how we work on keeping fit and healthy in school.

January

This term, we have started to learn about Ancient Greece!

We tried a variety of Greek food such as hummus and pitta, olives, Greek yoghurt and feta cheese. Some of them were delicious and we would definitely have them again. The olives weren’t that great!

We would like to thank all parent’s and carers that attended our open afternoon. It was great fun having you there to help us create our Greek shields! We think some of you had more fun than we did!

November/December

Hello again!

We have been reading a new book with was written by Michael Morpurgo, called Coming Home. It was 2016’s Christmas advert for Waitrose. We read it with expression and acted some parts out using drama. This helped us after we had drawn our story maps to remember the story to successfully rewrite it.

The pantomime we attended was fantastic! It told the story of the Lambton Worm. We can’t wait for next year!
