Year 3

Y3 Science – Forces

The children have been exploring forces this term and thinking about ways we can see the effects of forces. We linked this learning to our Ancient Egypt topic to think about ways to move pyramid blocks efficiently. They used saws to prepare ‘rollers’ for this purpose too!


The children have practised throwing and catching skills this term as part of their Cricket skills sessions – they did a fantastic job and worked really well when encouraging their partners

Y3 Learning Journey – History and Art

The children looked at shabtis as a form of Ancient Egyptian primary evidence and thought about what these could have been used for… They then used clay to create their own ‘servant’ for the afterlife, using previous skills such as hatching and using slip to make joins. Finally the children wrapped up their shabtis in […]

Y3 Maths – fractions

Y3 English – Immersion

We wrote mummification instructions this half term and as part of our immersion, the children researched how to do this using the iPads and made notes on possible tier 2 and 3 vocabulary they could include in their own writing. They worked well with their partners to share information. We then followed the instructions we’d […]

Y3 English

To immerse ourselves in our new writing topic – writing an Ancient Egyptian myth – we used drama to act out the myth of Bastet! The children worked well in groups and performed their scenes confidently.

Y3 Outdoor Learning day – Woodcraft skills

We had a fabulous day practising woodcraft skills in our outside area – we used saws to cut logs, loppers to cut branches, knives to whittle sticks and Willow to weave into crowns! The children showed super resilience, particularly when sawing and lopping as it required lots of sustained effort and teamwork. We loved the […]

Swimming – Sheffield Schools’ Relay Gala

We had a fantastic time losing our voices at Ponds Forge, supporting our team of ace swimmers in the city swimming gala. Every child was superb, giving it their all, and making their parents and teachers very proud! We finished 6th overall, which is a great result, especially considering more than half the team had […]
