Although we have worked very hard this year, here in Year 3 we have still managed to have a LOT of fun whilst producing some amazing work. Here is a snapshot of our activities so far. 

We started the year learning about our locality. This involved lots of fieldwork and map making. Take a look at our brilliant collaged (and 3D) maps that represent Barton in 1800, 2020 and what we think Barton might look like in the future.  You will also find a sketch map of the local area with a key. 



We have also enjoyed learning about our bodies. We made skeletons from dog biscuits (see the before and after research photos!), nmade model muscles and investigated why calcium is so important for bones.

After research:


Henry Dunkley has written a fantastic story called The Giant Bunny. You can listen to him reading it below. We have nominated him for ‘Writer of the Half-Term’ because of his SUPER use of a range of fronted adverbials to add more detail to the action. You really sound like a famous author now Henry!

Here is an extract from his story: ‘Far, far in the distance, on a lonely hill, Harry’s hairs were sticking up as he saw shadows that were lurking and growing, blood thirsty teeth that were showing and glowing, eyes of thunder turning and turning. That huge, colossal thing was a giant killing bunny. Screams were heard as fire spread. As a flicker of light went by, Harry was riding, riding down the highway that led elsewhere…'

You might also like to read Emily's story written during lockdown.
Here is part of Catherine's story - ‘The Blackpool Girl’.



Another recent highlight was 'Easter' focus day. This is us acting out the story and using salt dough to help us think about the different perspectives held by the characters. 


This is the special place in our classroom where we come to together and think about our lives, God and the school values.


Fancy a snack anyone? Take a look at our fabulous artwork here. Although left partially finished due to lockdown, I think these are just super!

  • There is no difference between the work set in school and the work that is completed by pupils at home.
  • Literacy and Numeracy lessons taught in each class are shared via Zoom so that every child has contact with their teacher on a daily basis. Children joining by Zoom will be expected to join in with the learning in class.
  • Lessons will be shared via the class pages on the website and / or class dojo.
  • Children at home and in school will be set a personal project to work on alongside the formal teaching. This could be a history, science, art or DT project. Additional work will be set for other subjects.
  • Pupils will be encouraged to take part in PE activities from home.

In all subject areas, standards of teaching and learning will remain at the usual high standard. Pupils will be expected to submit work and teachers will mark and return it. Everyone at home and in school has worked incredibly hard throughout the Autumn Term to plug gaps in learning; pupils were making excellent progress. We do not want to let that slip!
