Year 3


Mr Darren Dedman Class Teacher Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

In year 3, we work hard to support the children as they make the transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2. We gradually build their resilience to cope with longer lesson times and help them to develop their social, emotional and teamwork skills.

October 9th 2019

The children have enjoyed writing a diary entry as an Anglo Saxon villager and are showing great teamwork as they prepare for their harvest festival production. The children have also enjoyed learning about the preciousness of water to religious beliefs.

The children have enjoyed researching Anglo Saxon village life and are getting creative when drawing their Anglo-Saxon illuminated letters with oil pastels. The children were excited when their cast their vote for democracy day!


September 11th 2019

The children in year 3 came back to their brand new topic “Manuscript Detectives” and enjoyed using clues to search the school grounds for an ancient torn manuscript. They have settled in really well and are about to research Anglo-Saxon village life.

We have enjoyed making our shark habitats this week and we look forward to visiting the aquarium next week. The children are very excited about Sports Day!


In maths, we continue to build upon their understanding and extend their learning at every opportunity. In our English lessons, we explore a wide range of writing styles – supported by interesting texts and practise developing our speaking and listening skills. During our science lessons, we explore rocks and soils, magnetism, light, plants and animals. The children start to develop their skills in Spanish language and also begin to enjoy weekly music lessons with the opportunity of playing a variety of instruments. For our Treasures of the Deep topic, the children enjoyed a stunning start by finding diving artefacts around the school and meeting some real life divers. They have gone on to find fabulous facts about Jacques Cousteau and are learning about sharks. In PE, the children continue to develop their sporting skills and begin to participate in team events against local schools.

For our marvellous middle, we are looking forward to visiting Southsea Sea-Life centre to meet and learn more about the creatures of the  deep!
