  • Thursday 14 October 2021 The Spider and the Fly In Literacy Year 3 have been studying The Spider and the Fly, a poem by Mary Howitt, published in 1829. The children did very well getting to grips with the challenging language and practised reciting the poem with great expression. The highlight for Mrs Freeborn was seeing Year 3 perform 'mini plays' of their version of the cautionary tale with some well crafted paper props. If you don't know the poem, Year 3 will be happy to quote a line or two.

  • Thursday 20 May 2021 It is all about the bones Year 3 have been learning all about animals and humans, with a focus this week on the human skeleton. Today we go into teams to try to build an accurate skeleton, to then name and identify the main bones. Once we realised the bones had to join each other, we managed some very accurate skeletons, with most of the bones in the right place.
  • Friday 7 May 2021 Ultimate frisbee in Year 3 At the beginning of term, Year 3 began to learn about Ultimate Frisbee. We found it quite hard to master at first - throws never went where we expected, we tried to avoid frisbees coming our way and as for intercepting - what was that?
