Terrific timelines!

June 5th, 2015 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

As part of our topic focussing on Kings and Queens, Year 3 have been putting some important time periods in order to create a time line.

We started off by thinking about the time periods we have already learned about including this year including Ancient Greece, Robin Hood and the Victorians before adding some other important eras of our history

We then found out about the important people who were in charge at these different times.

What did you learn from our lesson Year 3?

Our first day back to school was a kings and queens wow day! This was a great way for us to introduce The Kings and Queens throughout British history topic to carry on with our learning on ‘who’s in charge?’

It was great to see so many of you dressed up like Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses. Not only in our classroom but in Chestnut as well!

imageWehad such a fun day we designed and created our own crowns, sang our National Anthem, learned all about the Queen of Hearts and made jam tarts, designed our own costume for a prince or princess, listened to funny stories about our Queen and made some rules up that we would bring in if we were in charge of the country!

What are you looking forward to learning about the most in our Kings and Queens topic?

What did you enjoy on our WOW day?

Water Safety assembly

May 20th, 2015 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We have learnt so much about water safety and how the RNLI keep us safe at the beach.



What did you learn in todays assembly?

I learnt that a beach with a lifeguard is 500 times safer than a beach without a lifeguard.

Can you remember what lifeguards wear?

How do we know where the safe areas on the beach are?

Make sure you always read the safety signs around water, they are there to help you and keep you safe.

Creative calligrams in the Wildlife garden

May 19th, 2015 · No Comments · Uncategorized

In literacy this week, Year 3 are learning about another type of poetry…calligrams.

Here are two examples of a calligram poem:

Today we started planning our own calligrams about plants and wildlife so we went into our school Wildlife Garden to seek inspiration.

We saw lots of wonderful natural wild flowers, trees and plants to give us some ideas.


Tomorrow we will begin using the ides that we gathered today to write our calligrams.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with Year 3!

What are you planning on doing your calligram about?
