Welcome to Year 3’s Class Page





Year 3 Enterprise Week



We have worked extremely hard this week making pom pom pets for the Enterprise Week sale. It has been like an episode from The Apprentice!

We had to come up with an idea, then we had to budget for the materials needed. As a class we decided on the selling price, we made posters to advertise the sale and we became stallholders shouting out for children to come and get our pom poms!

It has been hard work finding out what it is like to be in the world of business but great fun too. We made an amazing £82.80 profit for the PTA!

A big thank you to parents for your contributions. It allows us to have experiences such as Fossil Art and the Space Dome.



Mary Reader Cookery Demonstration



On the afternoon of 12th February Year 3 were very lucky to have a cookery demonstration and tasting session led by Mary Reader, Ian Hewitt, Susan Spooner and Katya Benedetto who are from Christchurch Food Festival Education Trust. The afternoon consisted of a demonstration and information on the healthy eating message. Mary and her team cooked food which came from different cultures and included a lot of local produce and a sugar free recipe.

We enjoyed watching the cooks preparing and cooking the recipes and then had fun tasting the different foods. These are the recipes that we tasted:

Spanish omelette with chorizo

Turkish Lamb Pilau

Fish Tagine

Spiced pork with stir fried vegetables

Sugar free spiced oat cookies

Please see the recipes for these dishes here: Primary School Cookery Days 2019

We were encouraged to try out all the different foods even if we thought that we might not enjoy them. Most of us liked all the different foods, especially the sugar free cookies.
Thank you Mary and team for giving us such an informative and fun cookery demonstration!

World Book Day


Year 3 had a fun day celebrating World Book Day and dressing up in their favourite book characters. We even had some extra activites in class linked to World Book Day which everyone enjoyed! Please take a look at our photos!



Building snowmen!


The children were very excited to see snow this term and Year 3 worked in teams to build their own snowmen! Well done everyone.





We are archaeologists!


In Year 3 we have been learning about the Stone Age. We thought about how people find out about the past when there is no written or photographic evidence. We learnt how archaeologists discover clues from the ground which helps us build up a picture of life in the Stone Age. We were set the task of excavating an ‘archaeological site to discover clues from the past. We found evidence of holes where posts would have been placed to create houses in one layer; we discovered flints which were used as tools or weapons. We had a lot of fun and learnt a lot about being an archaeologist!


Remembrance Week


Remembrance Week

We commemorated Remembrance Day with a special week last week. We learnt the poem, in Flanders fields and painted pictures to illustrate the poem. We thought about what the poem meant. We made poppies to decorate our special prayer table.


Meet Sydney



Mrs Wooller bought her rescue puppy, Sydney, into school this week. He was flown over from Cyprus to be adopted by Mrs Wooller and her family. We learnt a lot about Sydney and really enjoyed meeting him. Thank you, Mrs Wooller, for introducing him to us!


The children then produced some writing after Sydney’s visit. Please take a look at the work below:
