Welcome to the Year 3 page. Please keep checking back to see what we have been learning ….


In Science, we have started to learn about rocks!

The Kingfishers and Woodpeckers had a very chilly, but fantastic Geography/History trip on their tour around Burpham this morning.

The children had a great experience interviewing members of the public at Aldi Supermarket, where they completed a survey based on how frequently the public use and come to the Burpham area.

Both classes really enjoyed participating in a traffic survey where they could see how much and how many different types of vehicles travel through our village.

Look at some of the leaflets we have made in English!

We have been studying Persuasive Writing and then created our own leaflets to advertise Guildford. We live in a beautiful and exciting town!

This week in Maths, we have been looking at place value. 

Here are some useful websites to consolidate our current Maths topic.

We are all starting to get really excited for Christmas! Today, we went to the Holy Spirit Church for a Christingle service. First, we made our Christingles and learnt about the meaning of each part. Then, we had a special service with our families, as we learnt about why Christmas is an important time of year for Christians. We hope all of the visitors enjoyed the celebration as much as we did. Thank you to Jo, the vicar, and all the church helpers!

In Art this term our main focus has been on Autumn. We have been looking at all the beauty and colours Autumn brings at this time of year. Both classes have been real busy learning all about natural resources and their colours. Here are some pictures of our Mandala Patterns we have created on the playground using only natural resources thinking about Autumnal colours.
