Year 3 – Foxes

Our Amazing Work!

Y3 have been looking at land use in Geography. We went on a walk around our local area spotting all the different types of land use.

In Geography we have been using atlases to locate different mountains and hills in the United Kingdom. Miss Hughes was super impressed with our fantastic map skills!

During their English lessons, Y3 have been learning how to improve their vocabulary choices. We have been learning how to use adjectives, adverbs and expanded noun phrases accurately. We have also been learning about synonyms! Look at our wonderful work.

Year 3 Love reading!

We have been visiting our wonderful school library at least twice a week to have a look at all of the brilliant books in there.

We have shared books as a class, in groups and also with our friends.

Year 3 have looked at fiction and non-fiction books and have chosen some to take home and share with our families!


We had a great time on Friday celebrating the adults in our lives. We played games, built Lego and completed some colouring during the morning. It was a huge success and we cannot wait to do it again.

On Wednesday afternoon we had an awesome time in forest school as part of our reading treat.  All those children who read at least 3 times a week get a treat once a half term and this term it was forest school and it was soooooo much fun! We climbed tress, made dens and had a whole lot of fun. We cannot wait until next term for our next treat!

On Monday 22nd May, 10 year 3 and 4 children made their way to Pershore tennis club to take part in a variety of different tennis activities. We had a fabulous time learning new skills and came back very pleased with ourselves.

We have been enjoying ‘The Journey’ in English. We have immersed ourselves into the story. In small groups we acted out the first couple of pages. We even had a narrator. We are spending this unit focusing on improving our vocabulary choices.

We have loved our weekly cricket sessions! We have learned to much and we’re building our resilience. This week we focused on batting and blocking. Look at how well we can strike the ball!

Year 3 enjoyed a school trip to Envirosort as part of our Eco topic. We had so much fun and we learned so much (even the teachers!). We got to see inside the factory and witness how all of the rubbish is sorted. We then put our knowledge to the test and sorted materials and products into the correct category. Super work, Team Year 3!

Year 3 enjoyed a visit from Councillor Alex Sinton from Wychavon council. We discussed how to look after our environment, reduce our waste, reuse different materials and what materials can be recycled.

Today, in ukulele, foxes performed to woodpeckers. We have been practicing a variety of songs over the past few weeks and today was the big show! We gave them a little hint as to what they will do when they start their ukulele lessons after half term. We received lots off applause and cheers and look forward to their concert at the end of the year.

Today we were lucky enough to have our first session with our cricket coach! We have six sessions over the course of six weeks to become cricket superstars. We focused today on catching and also our resilience showing that we never give up, even with things are hard. We really enjoyed it and also had real fun while we improved our catching skills. We cannot wait for our next session after half term.

Have a look at our finished riddles. You can see the board and also some examples of what we have done. We are pretty great at it so have a read!

We have been creating our own riddles in English! We have been using the riddle clues to match the riddle with the picture and hoping that it will inspire us to create our own! We are focusing on our handwriting and trying to be the neatest we can possibly be. Keep an eye out for the results!

In science in year 3 we have been learning all about light and different light sources. We have been experimenting with torches and looking at how shadows change depending on how close the light source is. We had a lot of fun making different shapes during our science lessons and have also been looking at a wide variety of different light sources and reflective materials.

This was Year 3’s first attempt at stop frame animation. The children have really grasped the concept. We are looking forward to becoming more creative and more ambitious with our projects in future lessons. Watch this space!

In Art we have been exploring using different techniques to create tone with a focus on the artist Beverly Brown. Here we have used watercolour paints to create different tones.

We are promoting a love of reading in Year 3! We love our weekly library sessions.

On January 12th we went to young voices at Resort World in Birmingham and it is safe to say that it was absolutely AMAZING! We spent the day rehearsing with all the other children (over 6,500 of them!) so that our songs were perfect for our performance at 7pm. Once it got to 6pm we frantically started searching for our parents as they began to fill the arena! They had front row seats so that was amazing too and they were quite easy to spot with a huge banner and light up gloves! Once the concert began we smiled the entire time and sang our hearts out. If you have never been, make sure you sign up next year as it’s an unforgettable experience.

Year 3 loved participating in a virtual trip to the USA. Pupils made sure their boarding passes were ready for their adventure to several famous cities and landmarks. Using Google Earth and lots of virtual reality sites, we were able to experience what makes the USA awesome. It felt like we had visited the USA without leaving the classroom! We especially loved showing off our line dancing whilst visiting Nashville in Tennessee. Not only were we able to describe physical and human landmarks, we could locate the states on a map.

Wow! What a day we had when we went back in time to the Stone Age. We spent the day living the life of a Stone Age person and learnt all about how they lived, how they cooked, what they did for fun and so much more. We learnt all about the history of the Stone Age and how long it went on for. We watched how they gut and cook fish and they even ate the fish heart! We were not so sure on that bit though. The Stone Age people also made fire from stones and some straw. It was amazing to watch. It really was the most wonderful day and one we will remember for ever!

In our music lesson we were lucky enough to play a mini Cello. Miss Harper brought in her own one and let us have a go at playing it. We loved being able to make different sounds and have a go at something bigger than our ukuleles. Thank you, Miss Harper!

You can now call year 3 professional Bollywood dancers! We were taught how to dance by a professional Bollywood dancer and learnt a whole routine; by the end of the session we looked really good! A big thank you to our teacher for teaching us some history and also a really fun dance.

We had so much on our DT day! We made different chocolate treats and sold them to the other children in school. We loved selling our treats AND we enjoyed buying (particularly the slime!). There were lots of smiles across the whole school!

We performed another science experiment last week! We tested the permeability of rocks and their density. It was a very messy experiment!

Look at our fabulous balancing! We are working so hard on holding a balance.. and trying not to sway too much!

This week we have been reading ‘Stone Age Boy’ in English. We listened to the story, asked lots of questions, sequenced the story and then had a go at some freeze framing. We had SO much fun and there was definitely LOTS of giggling!

Our new topic in Science is ‘Rocks’. We have been exploring the three main types of rock. They are sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. We have had so much fun exploring different rocks and we even performed an experiment to show the different rock types!

We really enjoyed taking part in some Bollywood dancing last week – look at how much fun we had!

In computing, we have started programming. We have been learning how to give instructions to more than one sprite. We are programming super stars!

Year 3 had a brilliant DT day, building houses. Our aim was to construct strong and stable structures. We measured, cut and joined together different materials. Some of us added lights with switches to our houses.

Foxes have been really enjoying our library sessions on a Friday. We love being able to relax and read together as a class and pick books to read. Each week we get to go and it is a highlight of our English lesson.

As part of the PE curriculum foxes have been going swimming on a Friday afternoon. It is safe to say, we LOVE IT! We are becoming more and more confident in the water, learning new strokes, building stamina and also just having the best time! We enjoy the ‘free play’ part of the sessions as well at the end. Jumping in is the best!

We have been using drama in English to bring our lessons to life! We created different animals using our bodies and also showed these to the class. We discussed what freeze framing meant and how best to use our bodies to create different creatures.

During our science lessons, as part of our animals including humans topic, we got to take part in an experiment. We investigated if people with longer femurs were able to jump further than peoples with shorter femurs. We discussed making it a fair test and how we could go about investigating this statement. It was a really successful afternoon and we got to do lots of jumping!

We have also been enjoying our PE sessions this term. Look at our super jumping and balancing! We even played a bit of tag rugby!

We have been enjoying our weekly sessions in the library exploring fiction and non-fiction books. We love reading in Year 3!
