Year 3 (Class 7)

Welcome to Year 3

(Class 7)!

As part of our 'Flow' topic the children visited different rivers in Abingdon. They had the opportunity to take water samples of the different rivers which they will compare in class. We also tested the speed (current) of each of the rivers to see if there was a difference. 





Every Tuesday the whole of Year 3 have great fun learning to play the violin/cello/double bass with the help of Mrs Bruce, a teacher from the Oxfordshire County Music Service. They are all able to play making very pleasing noises with their bows. No scratching and scrapping here. Already there are a few firm favourite tunes including Strictly G and Portsmouth. There are also musical games to play and action songs to sing.


Everyone can have an instrument to take home, but a permission form has to be handed in first. Charanga Music World is a great new way to practise on their instruments at home, online. Here there are loads of activities as well as lots of cool stuff like games, quizzes and special rewards to unlock. Watch out for the Charanga Welcome letter coming home with all the details and token needed.

Year 3 are looking forward to making their first performance in the very near future, to show how much they have learnt, share how much fun they are having and for everyone to see how hard they are working.

This term in RE Year 3 have been thinking about the symbol of light and how light is used for celebration. We have learned about Diwali, Hanukkah and Advent. The children thought about the 'guiding lights' in their own lives.


Year 3 RE visit to Christchurch Abingdon,
Northcourt Road




Year 3 had a fun packed morning at Christchurch learning about the things that Christians do in Church, with a focus on 'Communion'.


Thank you to Heather and Sarah from Christchurch who led and organised the activities. The children had a good look around the church, completing a 'fun sheet' and also decorated a glass candle holder with Christian symbols and pictures. These will be sent home with the pupils this week.
Thank you to our parent helpers too!
