We were very excited in year three to do our scoot safe training.We found out how to stay safe on our scooters and did lots of fun activities.
Year 3 Performance Poetry 2018
On Tuesday our poetry performance was amazing, we performed it in front of the whole school and then for our families. We have really enjoyed writing and performing our own poetry. Everyone thought we did a fantastic job of it! We were the first year group to perform. Mrs Brownley said that all the other year groups would have a hard job to do as well as we had done!
This week in year three we have been practising our poems and songs for our poetry performance next week. The poems are about winter and animals.
In Geography our topic this half term is the weather. We have been researching information about extreme weather such as hurricanes, flooding and blizzards using the IPAD's. We then looked at the weather symbols which are used in weather forecasts and had a go at writing and presenting our own forecast to the class.
In Science we have been learning about the human skeleton. We have learnt about the functions and the different parts. We then made our own human skeleton out of art straws.
We have had a busy half-term in Year 3!
In Literacy, we have enjoyed exploring a variety of fables and creating our own, using a similar story line to 'The Tortoise and the Hare'.
We have been focusing on division and measurement in maths, and have had lots of fun incorporating our lessons in the playground.
Well done and thank you for all of the fantastic homework produced, we were really impressed with the time and dedication the children gave.
Year 3 have been very lucky to have been visited by the South Ribble sports partnership to learn all about the importance of scooter safety.
We are all looking forward to the fun this next half term will bring.

Well done to year 3 for presenting their homework tasks to their classes. All the children worked with great care and effort and the homework was of an extremely high standard. We were very impressed by the fantastic work which was shown to us. Here are some of the examples:

Wonderful winter scenes
Book cover designs

As part of Year 3's English we had the privilege of Paul Cookson working with us to support us in our performance poetry unit. The children took part in different poetry workshops where they thought of ideas for their poems before drafting them and finally presenting them to parents and the whole school in an assembly. The children worked extremely hard and they put together a fantastic performance which was enjoyed by all!
The children had a fantastic week during New Technologies week learning lots of new skills and they took part in many activities such as exploring the variety of Computing activities which had been set up in the hall, designing a new piece of technology as well as learning about the importance of Online Safety. A big thank you to Mr Benson for organising the week and here are some pictures of us taking part in the different activities!
In Music we have been exploring different playground songs and games and then we devised our own which we shared with the year 1 children.
We have been very lucky to have a sports coach providing us with orienteering sessions as part of our PE curriculum.
It was a challenging outdoor activity which required us to think carefully.
The aim of the sessions was to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a map.
Many different skills were required in these lessons such as teamwork, listening carefully to others and communicating well with our team.
As part of their DT topic year 3 have designed and made their own healthy sandwiches. They practised many important skills such as slicing the bread and then enjoyed eating their sandwiches in class!
