We have PE every Monday and Wednesday.

Homework will be sent home every Friday and is to be return by the following Friday.

Reading books will be sent home everyday and it is expected that every child reads at least five times a week at home. 


The Year 3 children have continued working with artists for their Eycott Project.

In preparation for their big performance at the end of the project in 2019 the children have been designing a banner to advertise the event.

The children are also working with members of Distington's community to share their thoughts and ideas.

All of the children in Year 3 took part in the Flat Stan First Aid Workshop. They learned some basic first aid as well as some important life saving techniques.

As part of our topic 'Did the Stone Age rock?' we visited Tullie House Museum, Carlisle.

Here we took part in an exciting workshop all about Prehistoric times. We had the opportunity to handle real objects from the time period as well as make our own Bronze Age Lunula necklaces.

We also had the opportunity to visit the many fantastic exhibitions related to different times in history. All of the children had a fantastic time!

As part of our maths work we have been learning about place value. We used our place value knowledge to help us correctly order significant events from the stone age until the iron age.

The children in Year 3 have been learning how to become resourceful thinkers. As part of this they have been learning how to independently use a dictionary to improve their work.
