Year 3

Feeling safe and Managing Risk


In Year 3 we have been looking about where we feel safe in school, what is risk and how we can manage risks. As part of this learning we all wrote our own risk assessments for our trip to the Great North Museum. We then pooled ideas to write a whole class one. Below is our finished product. 

Our Class Risk Assessment for our school Trip

This terms Egyptian's Homework one task to be completed each week. Handed in on a Friday

Friendship through Art


Zoe Roper and Eve Sproat are setting up a club at break times and lunch times at our school friendship bench. They are creating a drawing club to support people who have no one to play with or are just a little sad. Each day they will show children who want to get involved how to draw something new everyday.


The girls have shown great kindness and initiative.


Well done girls!

Poetry Class Entrants


After some really stiff competition in class, two pairs of performers have been chosen to perform Silver by Walter de la Mare, in the school poetry competition. They will be trying their best to get their hands and names on the Ivan Jones poetry trophy and the glory for Year 3.


The poetry performers are:

Isabelle Metcalf and Ruby Jones

Zoe Roper and George Smith


Good luck from year 3

Pen License's in Year 3

Since returning to year 3 the children have been trying their utmost (best) to be awarded one of the much coveted(wanted) pen license certificates. This certificate earns them the right to use a pen in all lessons (except maths) and a brand new shiny handwriting pen, filled with so many wonderful unwritten words and delightfully imaginative ideas.


This week I am proud to say:






All received their licenses and pens. Well Done.


And Year 3's Winners Are.....

Choosing the Year 3 entrants for the project final was incredibly tough. So challenging in fact, I had to recruit my family and friends to whittle it down to just 3, as the quality and effort was so good.


Our chosen projects to be sent to Miss Purdy for further judging were: Zoe Roper, Skye Guthrie and Alex Hitchens. Zoe we loved your  for ingenious idea of creating a new outfit for Sophie from leaves. Skye we loved the level of detail you had put into your sketches. Alex we loved your samples and scientific language. 


Well done everybody who took part a very proud and excited teacher.

Cool Cat by Mike Jubb

In Literacy year 3 are examining performance poetry. We really like using informal language and very much enjoyed listening to and pulling apart the features of this poem. Year 3 wanted to share this poem with you. Can you imagine the cat strutting down the street like we did? Can you think why he now has 8 not 9?

Welcome to Year 3!

Summer Term Topic

We're embarking on an exciting journey into the world of steam train travel! After a jam-packed trip to Beamish Museum we will be tracking the development of the UK's train network, investigating the work of George Hudson.



We expect all our children to read every evening and at weekends. In Year 3, 15 minutes should be a minimum but, if your child can't put their book down because they are so engrossed, that's the magic of reading.  Please ensure you sign the reading logs to confirm this reading is taking place.


Check out some of these fantastic books!

1. The Borrowers – Mary Norton

2. The Demon Headmaster – Gillian Cross

3. The Wind in the Willows – Kenneth Grahame

4. How to Train Your Dragon – Cressida Cowell

5. Stig of the Dump – Clive King

6. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – L. Frank Baum

7. The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien

8. Flat Stanley - Jeff Brown, Scott Nash, Macky Pamintuan

9. Bamba Beach – Pratima Mitchell

10. Matilda – Roald Dahl
