Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3.


Dear Year 3 parents and carers,


All of the children have settled back into school life well and have been working hard to engage positively within lessons. 


There are 11 children in year 3 and our class teacher is Miss Johnston.


If you or your child need to self isolate or are unable to return to school because they are waiting for the results of a coronovirus test, home learning activities for Maths and English can be provided in a pack.


If you need to contact me please call the school office or email me using my school email address seen below, between 9am and 3pm.


My email address is -


Miss Johnston

Stone Age cave art.

As part of our topic, we looked at Stone Age cave art. The children had a go at sketching their own cave art on brown paper. We sketched under the tables so it felt like we were inside a cave!

Designing and making our own Stone Age tools.

The children used different materials to design their own Stone Age tool. They used string to join the materials together. All of their tools were very impressive.

Science week - Skittles experiemnt.

The children took part in a skittles experiment and watched in awe as the colours created a beautiful pattern with warm water. Skittles are coated in food colouring and sugar. When you pour water over the skittles the coloured coating dissolves spreading through the water.

Happy Easter everyone!

The children made their own Easter baskets to store their super snack! They enjoyed chocolate mini eggs on our last day of term.
