Hello Kingfishers and Woodpeckers 

Welcome to the Year 3 class page.  

On this page you will find some websites that we recommend using and photographs of what Year 3 are getting up to.  To find your newest weekly spelling list, please visit classroom.google.com

We will be doing some very exciting learning this year - turning you all into whizzy writers, mathematicians and historians!

Homework is set every Friday and is due in on a Thursday.  It will always have a grammar focus and we will mark it together each week.


We have been very busy again this term in Year 3.  Our school trip has been a highlight. We spent the day at Butser Farm, learning about how Britain changed from the Stone Age, right up to the Roman invasion. This involved spending time in reconstructed houses, taking part in an archaeological dig and making our own chalk carvings and jewellery. Take a look below at some of the photos from the day.

We have been enjoying all the celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Lots of us decided to enter the portrait competition. Take a look at our fantastic artwork above!

In RE we learnt all about the miracles Christians believe that Jesus performed. This photo shows some Woodpeckers creating a collaborative art project on Jesus calming the storm.

These photos show some of our independent investigations all around our topic of Forces.
