On Tuesday 24th January Year 3 experienced Victorian day, where we were able to experience what life was like in a Victorian school. We did the three r’s – arithmetic, writing and reading. We took part in physical education and did: hoop training, drills, skipping and sang ring a ring a roses. Finally, we spent are afternoon drawing the school as it was originally built in pencil and then charcoal. Would we have survived in a Victorian school?
In November Year 3 went to Mossley Methodist Church for 'Experience Harvest', which is a community led carousel of activities about harvest within the church. They rotated round 5 different activities and had a range of different experiences, including: weaving, origami and making clay pots.
Stone Age to Iron Age immersive workshop
In September Swift class took part in a Stone Age to Iron age immersive workshop. We looked at lots of different bone which have been discovered and learnt about how people in these times lived.
Tuesday 20th September 2022
Today in literacy we set up our own Stone Age Camp. We worked in teams to make an authentic camp, sang a campfire song and then had to pack up for the migration. This work will feed into our writing tomorrow.

By the end of year three the expectation is that all children will be confident with their 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 4s and 8s times tables. We will practise these at least three times a week during school. The children will need to use Times Tables Rock Stars at home for a least 10 minutes a day to practise these tables. All children have been provided with a login previously, but if you have lost it please don't hesitate to ask for a new one.
