Year 3 (Class 7)

Kate Randall Class 7 Teacher

We wrote our setting descriptions and the class were very keen to share their ideas!

World Book Day 2022 - we also listened to book reviews from some members of the class. This is something we're going to carry on doing so if you're child has enjoyed a book they can bring it into school and they'll have a chance to tell us all about it!

Our finished masks on show!

We enjoyed writing our own Greek myths so much!

Making mythical creature masks using paper mache!

We created our own 'human' timeline to help us understand Ancient Greece! Our topic is Ancient Greece and we've already read some Greek myths!

Happy New Year!


We hope you have all enjoyed a great Christmas.  We really appreciate all the lovely cards, gifts and messages we received at the end of last term - thank you all so much.


We look forward to seeing you for another busy and exciting term!

Painting our volcanoes! Don't they look great!

We learned a poem about a volcano and added actions before performing for the class.

Making volcanoes - we used bottles and newspaper along with watered-down PVA glue to make a volcano - we'll be painting them soon!

Class 7 has its own post box. Children can bring in their Christmas cards and post them. They will be collected and delivered by the postman!

Using pastels to create volcanoes - we created volcanoes and then shared each piece with a chosen name and our favouriite part of the picture! Photographs of the art gallery taken by our our expert in-house photographer!

We are learning French at the moment - we can greet each other and ask someone's name. The children shared their conversations in French with the class. We also counted to 10!

We are learning about 'The Street Beneath Our Feet' and have looked at the layers of the Earth. We made out own 3-D pictures of the layers. Don't they look great!

We acted some emotions and took some freeze frames!

Some of the class made their own cave paintings!

We investigated, designed and made stone age tools! We will be going on a scavenger hunt with them soon!

We became archaeologists and visited Forest School to see what we could find! We learned about the tools that archaeologists discovered parts of that originated in the Stone Age!

We started some poetry today and some members of the class shared their work!
