Year 3

Mini Vinnies Celebration

This week in school we held a beautiful Mini Vinnies commissioning ceremony led by Mr Michael Willcock. The children were presented with certificates and badges to recognise their commitment to helping others both locally and around the world. This ceremony was a wonderful way to welcome our new Mini Vinnies from Year 4 and 5.

Performing Poetry

With it being National Day this week, Year 3 have been looking at performing poems and creating some acrostic poems.

The children worked in pairs to learn and then perform a choice of poems. They had a great time and the poems were performed in many different ways.




As part of our topic on the Stone Age, we have been creating a beautiful pastel picture of Stonehenge.

We used smudging and blending to create some vibrate skylines with the pastels and then added our very own Stonehenge stones.

How do you use a dictionary?

Year 3 have been working extremely hard with their dictionaries.  We’ve been looking at how to use alphabetical order to find the word  and have also realised that dictionaries do more than tell you how to spell a word.  Do you know what else they can be used for?
