Let's Learn our 4 and 8 Times Table! - 14.10.19
In Year 3 your child needs to learn and become fluent with both their 4 and 8 times tables. Currently we are working hard on both our 4's and our 8's and are encouraging the children to practise them whenever they can both in school and at home. The children are familiar with the following musical videos to help them learn their 4 and 8 times table. We would really appreciate it if you could support us and your child by reminding them to log on and have a go. Not only will it help them become fluent, it is also lots of fun and an opportunity to have a 'Good Old Sing Song' together.
We hope you like it as much as we do! Wonder who will 'still be standing' by the end of it!?
' Today has been my last day in Class 3 with your amazing, incredible and inspiring children! As I am sure you are aware, I leave today to have my baby and will be returning to school after Christmas once I return from maternity leave. I have today announced to the class officially that I am expecting a little baby girl and they are just as excited as me. They can't wait for me to bring her in which of course, I have promised to do.
We treated the children to a little class party this afternoon where we all shared drinks and specially made baby girl cupcakes for those who wanted one. There was dancing, celebrations and fun had by all!
I would like to take this opportunity to say that it has been a pleasure and joy to support your children since they joined us in September last year and I am very much looking forward to continuing to hear about their progress and achievements throughout the remainder of year 3.
Thank you to all parents/carers and children who have so kindly given me some lovely and generous gifts for both myself and my baby. I really appreciate them so thank you so much once again!
I will miss each and every one of the children incredibly but will be popping into school regularly to catch up with them.
See you all soon!

This half term the children's topic work was 'Escape the Cave!' The children in class 3 have been learning about the history of the IRON AGE.
Once again, your children have absolutely WOWED us with their projects and research. There were so many amazing projects, that it has taken a little longer than normal to judge and choose winners based on creativity and effort. The winners will be announced by the end of the week and prizes and certificates awarded. Your child will also be bringing their projects back home with them by Friday 14th February.
The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at the artwork created by children in the other year 3 classes as did the staff!
We look forward to welcoming you into class after school on Tuesday 11th February to look at your children's work, however, if you are unable to attend, then take a look at these pictures. I am sure you will agree that they are fantastic and your children should be very PROUD of themselves!
Class 3 Team
We are once again extremely proud of our children in class 3 for their amazing Roman artefact homework projects! They have proven their art skills and creativity and we are so pleased to be able to now share them all with you. We are sure you will agree that they are absolutely fantastic.
Your children's incredible Roman Artefact projects!
This half term children were asked to complete a topic based project about 'My Human Planet'. We asked the children to design and make their model using recycled materials and link it to something that they would find in the garden.
We hope you enjoyed looking at all of the wonderful and creative projects on display in our classroom during our open afternoon! If you missed them, have a look at the photograph below. Miss Aullak, Mrs Archbold and Ms Litchfield would like to congratulate all the children who completed their project, we are very proud of their work!

I am sure you will agree the children have done a fantastic job and have learnt so much more about the Stone Age as well as having lots of fun!
5.2.2020 - Our Trip to Beaumanor Hall!
First of all Miss Aullak and all of the teaching staff in year 3 would like to congratulate all pupils on their impeccable behaviour today on our fantastic Stone Age themed trip to Beaumanor Hall. Everyone had an awesome time and learnt so much more about life in the Stone Age! The children took part in different activities including; visiting a real life sized Stone Age roundhouse, painting their faces with blue stone age battle patterns, making looms, making stone age music and grinding grain with stones.
The children are took part in a stone age facts scavenger hunt around the grounds of the hall and the gardens in small groups. To finish off an incredible day, the children took part in a battle re-enactment! As I am sure you can imagine, the children absolutely loved this experience as they were able to use their drama skills along with stone age battle weapons to try and beat their opponent!
Have a look at some of the pictures of your children enjoying themselves!
Today in class the children have begun their theme work for the half term and started to learn about different types of rock. They have learnt which rocks are igneous, sedimentary and which are metamorphic. The children were also interested in investigating the permeability and durability of different rocks. Some of the rocks we investigated were; chalk, granite, sandstone, slate and marble. The children conducted an experiment in class to test these characteristics and recorded their results.
8.1.2020 - Drama workshop in English
This term your child will be learning the story of 'The Stone Age Boy'. After orally learning the story in class using our story map, the children in class 3 worked in groups to create a short drama clip focusing on different parts of the text. The children had time to practise before performing in front of the class where their performances were evaluated and of course a photo taken. Take a look at your child performing in class!
Roman Road Modelling.
Today class 3 children learnt about the Roman built their roads and what materials they used. Afterwards, the children used a mixture of ingredients to recreate the layering process used by the Romans. The children used rice crispies, kit kats, raisins and rich tea biscuits to represent this. The tables and carpet got a little messy but the children thoroughly loved the activity and cannot wait to eat their edible Romans roads when they get home!
Class 3 get 'All Arty'!
This afternoon we put on our aprons, rolled up our sleeves and put our artist's caps on. The children in class 3 experimented with colours. Using primary colours, the children were able to make different colours and also used black and white to create different tones of the same colour. Lots of fun was had and class 3 produced some very good work demonstrating their understanding of colour mixing!
6.11.19 - 'Roman Day!'
Today was Roman day in Year 3 and the children all looked fantastic! We saw lots of different Roman clothing ranging from rich Romans, Roman soldiers to Roman workers. The children had a very exciting day where they took part in 3 different activities from the Roman times.
1. The children visited a recreated scene of the great eruption of Pompeii and the aftermath and devastation it left behind. They then created, in groups, an incident report which was submitted to Mrs Smart to read.
2. The children joined Miss Aullak in the hall to take part in a Roman battle. They marched and created a tortoise shell shape using each other and their hands to defeat their opponents.
3. Finally, the children joined Mrs Woollett in Class 2 to do some Roman baking where the children made honey cakes.
A great day was had by all! Have a look at some of the pictures we took throughout the day!

Open Afternoon in Class 3
Today Year 3 visited the Hindu Temple in Derby. An informative and enjoyable time was had by all! The children in class 3 were very well behaved and were brilliant role models for our school. Thank you to all of the children for making us PROUD!
The children were able to observe a prayer session which was very interesting, take part in a question and answer session with a member of the Derby Open Centre team where the children were able to show off their knowledge and understanding of Hinduism and also had the opportunity to look at and dress up in traditional Sari and kurtn clothing.
Have a look at some of the fantastic pictures below from this morning's trip!
8.10.19 - The Children conduct a Litter Survey around School.
Today, class 3 put on their coats, grabbed a clipboard and pencil and in pairs, completed a litter survey around the school grounds. The children, used a 'Tally Chart' to record their findings before returning to the classroom to both discuss their learning walk and to answer questions about what they had found out.

This morning, year 3 were lucky enough to join the infant children in the school hall and watch an amazing performance of the classic tale 'Pinocchio!' All children were really well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was a real treat! Thank you to the three performers from the Image Theatre Company for visiting our school. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
18.9.19m - A Huge Thank you to all parents/carers!
Class 3 teachers and teaching assistants would like to say a massive thank you for collecting bottle tops for your children. We really appreciate your efforts! Thanks to you, your children have been able to create a wonderful recycling display in school along our year 3 corridor.
We think you will agree that it has brightened up our learning area and also promotes the importance of recycling!
Please encourage and help your child to learn the current English story or text by asking them to read it aloud using their story telling actions and the story map below.
Every 3 weeks, the story map image will be updated so if your child does not have their story map books with them, they will be able to log onto our class page on the school website to support their learning in class.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Escape from Pompeii - Suspense Story
Class 3 go on a recycling walk!
Today class 3 went on a walk in pairs around Woodville to locate different types of recycling bins and learn about what they are, their uses and where to locate them.
The children used a map of Woodville and were able to mark where the recycling bins were located and what materials could be put in each bin.
(This learning walk forms part of our current Human Plant/Recycling topic).
