Investigating 3D Shapes

Today the children were set the challenge of creating 3D shapes from a range of materials. The children were asked to make 3D shapes out of play dough, nets of shapes and art straws. The children then had to investigate the amount of edges, faces and vertices that their shapes had. The children loved making lots of different 3D shapes.

Today Ava, Jack and Ryan H were asked to represent our school at an event at South Shields Town Hall. The children were asked about whether they knew what an election was and what candidates were. They were then told the story of a land who needed to have an election to find its new leader. The children were then taken to the chambers and listened to the two candidates. In secret the children then placed their votes and they helped to elect Sally Shoelace as the new leader of Staryland. The children had an amazing time and Miss Waite was extremely proud of how well they represented our school.

Year 3 Spellings

This week the children are going to be tested on Set 4 of their spellings.


We are all different!

In pastoral care we have been learning all about being different. To explore this further we played games of Guess Who where we explored our differences. We then celebrated our differences by creating profiles of ourselves. We loved playing Guess Who and this really helped our understanding of being different to each other.

Investigating letters

In Year 3, we are learning about informal letters. We were able to investigate examples of formal and informal letters to find their similarities and differences. After studying different letters, we were able to practise our use of informal language by writing a postcard to a friend. We found that Year 3 are brilliant at thinking of examples of informal language that they could use in their writing.

Let’s compare England and Italy

Our creative curriculum topic for this half term is Italy. We decided that we should compare Italy to England. We had great fun using our school iPads to research and record information about both countries.

Wonderful Winter Gardens Visit

Today the children in Year 3 were able to visit the Winter Gardens Museum. The children were able to experience a rainforest environment and learn about the animals that we would find in the rainforest. The children were extremely well behaved and the lady who led the workshop was so impressed with the knowledge that the children had about rainforests. Year 3 had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed their day out of school.
