Dragon Days 

Dragon Days

Although we were sadly unable to perform our play properly at the end of term, we greatly enjoyed singing our songs on the last day of 'normal' school. 


Happy Easter 


Year 3 have spent the last few days preparing for Easter. We have listened to the Easter Story, made our Easter cards, and used coordinates to make the Easter Bunny's garden.

We have also tackled an Easter Egg challenge - We had to work in teams of 2, 3 or 4 to make a structure 38 cm tall which could hold 2, 3 or 4 mini chocolate eggs! We could choose which materials we used for our structure. As you can see, we were very inventive and came up with some great ideas. 

The next challenge was to make a structure 30 cm tall using only paper and scissors which could balance the mini eggs - This was more difficult! You might like to try it at home?

We were all disappointed not to be able to go on school camp to Delaware this week, and very sad not to be performing our play Dragon Days for you next week. Thank you to all of you who sent in costumes. We are hoping to resume practices once the Corona virus is over and be able to present it to you then. 

Thank you for your help and support this term. We hope you have had a look at the suggested work ideas we have uploaded for you and hope you will manage to have a safe, healthy and enjoyable Easter. 

With best wishes

The Year 3 Team

Roman Day 

We had a fantastic Roman day last week.
The children all looked brilliant dressed as Romans or Celts.
We started the day sharing some songs and facts with the parents before tackling some art, crafts and games. Finally in the afternoon there was a big battle!
