This year we are studying lots of exciting topics!

Tribal Tales


Mighty Metals

We will be having lots of exciting WOW days throughout the year to learn more about these topics.




Here are some photos from some of our WOW days so far………



















Children are expected to read their books at least three times a week. But every night is encouraged. We love to share our favourite books together! Two children are chosen to be readers of the week each week and this is something we love to celebrate.








Rewards in Year 3


Children can earn Dojo’s for good behaviour, hard work and displaying the virtue. Each week, the dojo’s collected will be counted and converted into minutes. This allows children to work together to receive a lovely Dojo treat every half term.



Star of the Week!

Each week, a child is chosen from each year 3 class to be the star of the week. This is awarded for hard work, good behaviour and being a good role model to others.
