Term 3

Enquiry Overview: Where does our 'clean' water come from?

This term, we will learning about the Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on Goal 6- Clean Water and Sanitation. We will be considering what makes water 'clean', where water comes from and how clean water is accessed. We will also be exploring the availability of clean water in other areas of the world and think about the rights that we have as children.

Class Assembly- Article 13 Right to find out information 

Today we had a great time performing our class assembly to some of our parents and carers. We talked about the Global Goal we are focusing on and sang two songs about the water cycle. After that, we showed our parents and carers how to make their own water cycle in a bag. We are looking forward to sharing some more exciting learning with you next term.

Nativity- Article 14 The right to religion 

Today we had a wonderful time at St Stephen's Church watching Year 4 perform their Nativity. We joined in with all of the songs that we have been learning during singing assembly with Nigel. We're feeling very festive now and can't wait for Christmas!

Water cycle poster Article 13 Right to find out information 

The children create some brilliant posters which explain what happens at each stage of the water cycle. 

Country Music- Article 29 Goals of Education

Today we were lucky enough to have the UK number one Country singer come and perform for us. We couldn't believe how skilled he was, playing a guitar and singing his own song too. We loved listening about how he ended up as a singer and we hope that some of us can be as successful as him one day.

WOW- Water Aid (Article 24- safe water to drink)

Today we had a fantastic talk from Water Aid which helped us learn all about safe water and the availability of water on Earth. We couldn't believe that, although the world isn't made up of 70% water, only 1% of that water is drinkable. We are looking forward to learning more about this and we can't wait to think of some great ways to allow everyone to have the right to safe drinking water.

WOW- Alien Soup

We began our learning today by thinking about what makes our water 'clean'. We were given some 'Alien Soup' and our task was to try and make the water clean enough to drink.


Term 1

Enquiry Overview: What is the place between?

Picture 1
This term, we will be immersing ourselves into a Power of Reading text called "Leon and the Place in Between." We will be following the magical journey of Leon, writing and creating our very own place in between. As well as this we will be role playing, hot seating and freeze framing many characters and scenes from the book. We will be learning how to use noun phrases and commas in a list and inverted commas!

Class Assembly

Thank you to everyone who came to our assembly. We really enjoyed sharing everything we have learnt so far in Year 3. 


We worked really hard drawing these owls. 3MK tried really hard to apply the hatching skills they have been practising to make them realistic. 

Magic Trick

We made our own magic tricks using magnets. We had to design them and then we had a go at making them. Some of ours actually worked!


During our Jigsaw lesson, we had lots of fun learning about teamwork. We had the challenge to make the biggest tower we could in our teams using spaghetti and marshmallows. Have a look at the photos to see how we got on.


This week we have been learning how to copy and paste images into google documents. We also had a go at creating our own Popplets. Although some of us found it challenging we used our Growth Mindset and succeeded. 


In Oracy we played lots of different games including articulate. We worked hard to ensure we listened carefully to one another and took it in turns to speak.


We had lots of fun learning all about partitioning numbers using the part-part- whole method. 

WOW- Magic with Mr T!

To kick start our enquiry based on 'Leon and the Place Between', we had a very special visit from a very magical man- Mr T. He wowed us with some amazing magic tricks which left us extremely excited to begin our new enquiry. As well as this, back in class we learnt all about optical illusions and had a go at creating our own illusions and mini flip books.
