Spring Term

Welcome back! I hope you all had  a lovely half term! smiley


This term, our topic is Plants, and with this wonderful weather we are having, looks like the perfect time for it! In this topic, we will be doing lots of Science investigations, where we will be looking at what plants need in order to live and grow, how water is  transported through plants and the functions of differing parts of flowering plants.  We will also be spending time researching Robin Hood and his adventures in Sherwood Forest, as we build up to our exciting residential trip! This will involve using maps to plan our route from Tickhill to Sherwood, researching what Sherwood has to offer, and Reading the wonderful 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' to find out what mischief Robin Hood and his merry men got up to.

If you have any questions, or just want to know how your child is getting on at school, please feel free to come and talk to me before, or after school smiley







Autumn 2

Welcome back! smiley


We have another exciting half term to look forward to in year 3! Following the enjoyment from last half term, we are continuing to focus our topic lessons around the Stone Age, where we will be continuing to look at a day in the life of a caveman, Stone Age art, living conditions in the Stone Age and famous Stone Age landmarks such as StoneHenge.  In addition, we will also be looking at a second topic subject; Light and Shadow.  This topic will focus on the importance of light, how shadows are formed and can be changed, and how to stay protected from the sun.

Our Stone Age creative homework show

Thank you for attending our school creative homework show.  Year 3 proudly showed off their brilliant creative homework pieces which were all in relation to our current topic; the Stone Age.  This ranged from beautifully hand-carved hunting weapons and well designed Stone Ages board games, to a fantastic (and tasty!) model of Stonehenge made from Bourbon biscuits! 


Year 3 Dance Festival

Year 3 had a fantastic time learning and showing off their fabulous dance moves at Sir Thomas Wharton Academy alongside many other primary schools.  They thoroughly enjoyed learning and performing various styles of dance including Michael Jackson dancing, street dancing and contemporary dancing.

A cracking Christingle!

To begin our long awaited Christmas celebrations at St. Mary's, year 3 lead a brilliant whole school church service at the stunning St.Mary's church, based on the importance and meaning of Christingle.
