Papyrus Calendars

Papyrus Calendars

For our 2017 calendars we looked at Ancient Egyptian art and used repeating patterns to create a similar design. We learnt how papyrus stems are made into paper. 

Death masks

Canopic Jars

Ancient Egyptian Canopic Jars

Since returning to school after October half term we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We reaserched how to mummify a dead body and how they used canopic jars to reserve (what Egyptians thought) the vital organs, they believed they were needed to live again in the afterlife. 

Here are some of our jars, we worked very hard to sculpt them with clay.

Save The World Projects

At the beginning on the term, all children were asked to do a project on recycling. There were 6 key questions where children had to research information and present it in any way they liked.


These were AMAZING!!!

Just take a look at the time and effort these children put into making these projects.

Thank you SO MUCH for all their hard work, I hope you children learnt lots and enjoyed making them :)

Recycling is Art

After having a moan about recycling we decided to use old newspapers and jam jars to up-cycle them into something more useful. We were inspired by the junk model artist Leo Sewell and designed a coaster and a candle ornament. What do you think?

Human Skeleton


We have been looking our humans as part of our science work this half term. We learnt about our important bones, muscles and organs; how to lead a healthy lifestyle and eat a balanced diet and the effects exercise has on our body by doing an experiment.

Here are some examples of the skeletons we made :)


As part of our topic this half term we are looking at our environment and how we can help to protect. We looked into the effects of driving and air pollution and we looked into recycling. After walking around school we noticed that there are not enough recycling bins so we have prepared a letter to Mrs Chalal to persuade her to purchase some for each class and the dinner halls. Watch this space!



In maths we are currently learning our 3 timetables and place value. From there we then learnt to add and subtract three digit numbers. Here is an example of what we get up to in maths!

Welcome Back!

It is a new year and we have new pupils. They have settled in really well into year 3. They have kick started Accelerated Reader and began taking books home to practise reading for their test. Some have read well and scored an impressive 100%.

Parents please listen to your child read every night if possible and encourage them to check their understanding by asking them questions on their text.

Maths and spelling homework will be given out every Friday and will need to be in by Wednesday the following week.

Our first topic is 'Save the World' and as part of a new project based homework approach every week your child will add more to their project and bring it in the week of 17th October :)

The Queen's 90th Birthday Week Celebrations

This week the whole of year 3 have been studying Britain in the 1960s as part of the celebrations for her Majesty The Queen, as it is just one of the many decades she has reigned as Queen for.

We had to study three songs from the swinging sixties, these are: Congratulation by Cliff Richard, Twist and Shout by The Beatles and RESPECT by Aretha Franklin.

We even performed a dance and whole year group assembly to year 1, they were really impressed :)

 Here are our 1960's catwalk models, don't they look groovy?!
 Here we have Aretha Franklin and her backing singers.
 And The Supremes
 The Beatles
