Welcome back to Term 2!


This term we are continuing the Castles topic. We are learning about Henry 8th who visited our own Thornbury Castle and what life would have been like in Thornbury when he visited during Tudor times. 


We will be having a Tudor Day on Tuesday 5th December. Children are encouraged to come to school wearing Tudor clothes and we will be visiting Thornbury Castle, along with a range of other Tudor activities. 


Children will be having PE lessons on a Monday afternoon and a Wednesday morning. 

Forest School Week 3 - Storytelling

Linked with our Castles and Dragons topic, we developed dragon stories in the forest. We used natural resources to make our sets and to help our performances come to life. We worked really hard to show emotion in our faces, actions and voices when we were acting!

Forest School Week 2 - Orienteering

We used maps of the forest to find lettered posts. We had to turn our maps around and look for landmarks around us to work out which way to go next!

Forest School Week 1 - Green plants

Welcome to Year 3 (Sept 2017)

We are delighted to welcome our new Year 3 children into KS2 this week and look forward to a fun packed year ahead.



Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is... Castles and Dragons! We will be using lots of different dragon texts to explore fantasy worlds and improve our writing. In our topic lessons, we will look at British castles, with a particular focus on Thornbury Castle and what life was like there in Tudor times when Henry 8th visited.  


Forest School

We will be having our Forest School sessions on 13th September, 20th September, 27th September and 4th October. Please make sure you have your outside clothes including wellies!



A Future Stars coach is coming in to give Year 3 coaching in Tag Rugby on Tuesday afternoons in Term 1. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 


Meet the Teacher

Our Year 3 Meet the Teacher session will take place on Wednesday 13th September at 2.45pm in the Year 3 classroom. We look forward to meeting lots of parents then but please do come and talk to us after school any day is you have any questions or need to tell us something. 


Many thanks,

Mrs Smith and Miss Morgan (Year 3 Teachers)

Pupils in Year 3 bring home weekly spellings which focus on the spelling rules and patterns in the National Curriculum. 

In addition, the NC includes a word list for each of the phases.  From the Year 3/4 words the easier words have been selected and made into 3 word lists which the pupils need to be able to spell by the end of the year, both in tests and in their everyday writing.  Most pupils will given a sheet with the lists on to begin learning list 1 at home.  Please encourage them to do this in a variety of ways. 

Thank you
