Term 3


History Day The Tudors


I like the Tudor sports because it was quite different from the sports we played today. Nine Mens Morris was difficult to play. Leona


We played Nine Mens Morris, chasing the hoop, football and quoits. Did you know that if you tried to beat Henry V111 you might get executed! Isabella R and Dilys.


I liked history day because I liked throwing the quoits onto the cones. Aria and I did it once! Dottie.


Did you know in Tudor times a football was made out of pigs bladder and stuffed with human hair. Bella and Ted.


This week we also had Science day and we did a test about light using torches. In a group using a mirror and torch we tried to reflect the light beam and send our partner a signal. Minna.


I really liked it when everyone dressed up in their costumes and we played games. Isabella G.


I liked everyone's outfits they were amazing. Myra.

My favourite game was chasing the hoop. Effie. 


Year 3 team.

WC 10.1.22


Another great week of learning in Larch Class. The children are really excited about going on their first big trip after a very long wait! Thanks for bringing the slips back and responding so quickly!


Here is what the children had to say about their learning this week:


"In PE we learnt how to play hockey" - Suhaib

"In maths we have been learning about division and multiplication!"- Angelo

"In art we made Henry VIII portraits." - Aryan

" In English we've been reading A Midsummer Night's Dream and we wrote a letter from Hermia to her father explaining why she didn't want to marry Demetrius." - Aria

"In Maths we have been learning about groups and arrays!" - Myra

"In spelling we have been learning about suffixes and today we played a game where we had to decide if we had to drop the 'e' or double the final consonant." - Minna


Have a lovely weekend everyone and apologies for the lack of photos as they didn't transfer from iPAD :o(

I've sorted it for next week though.

Happy New Year everyone!

We hope you've had a relaxing break and we are looking forward to the term ahead. PE will continue to take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (please send your child into school wearing their PE kits on these days as they were doing last term).

Our class topic this term is all about Tudors with a focus on comparing the lives of rich and poor people during this period of history. Our class text for English is William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.  Here is a short animated version of the play if you are interested....we have played this to the children once already and it has really helped with the understanding of the story.

Our science topic this term will be all about light and shadows and in RE we will be learning more about Hinduism and the concept of re-incarnation.

I've a attached a few photos below of us enjoying parachute games in this week's PE lesson.

Have a wonderful weekend


Mr Hewett and the Y3 Team
