Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 and 4!

We have five classes in Lower Key Stage 2 and our teachers are Mrs Allin, Mrs Watson, Mr Blake, Mrs Pearce and Mrs Jones.

You will find us situated on either side of our fabulous library, enjoying our learning; having fun, exploring new things and developing as life-long learners. Throughout the year we will be investigating the rampaging Romans, Shackleton’s Antarctica and enterprising Egyptians. It's an action packed journey filled with exciting and memorable learning opportunities.

Super Sawing

Year 3 are really getting creative and are now into the sawing stage of their DT project within their Invaders topic.

Did you know that some of the boxes were recently found in Shoreham when they discovered an Anglo-Saxon burial site?

An eggs-ordinary Start of 2018

Last week Year 3 started their Inventors and Inventions topic in an egg-citing way by 'hatching' plans to become inventors themselves.

After reading Egg Drop they worked in teams to egg-ercise ways of transporting their eggs egg-xtra safely.   It was egg-'tremely tense in the hall at egg-actly 2:30pm on Friday when the teams egg-ceptional inventions 'whisked' gravity egg-splosively!   Shell-shockingly only a few scrambled!

A happy fry-day had by all - now don't go poaching these yolks...
