together we can...


Autumn Term



In Science this term we have been exploring and investigating different forces including the

forces from a magnet. We used our scientific skills to investigate which surface is the best for a car to travel on. We have also thoroughly enjoyed our hands on experiments with magnets and discovering how they work.



In year 3 we are very lucky as we are given the opportunity to learn how to play the drums. Each week we learn new techniques then put these together to create new songs. It has been great fun and we are improving week by week! Take a listen. What do you think?

This term we have thoroughly enjoyed learning a range of new skills in our DT topic. This term’s topic has been inspired by the Great British Bake Off where the children have enjoyed designing and making their own monster cakes which have all helped lead up to our Christ Church Bake off. 3H have used their own designs to design a class ‘Showstopper’ to represent their class in the Christ Church Bake off.


This term year 3 have been introduced to their class value ‘Trust’. They have thought about what trust means to them and who they can trust in the world. Together they went on to write their own trust poem.


For History this term we will learn about the Stone Age period and what life was like back the. We will use lots of different sources to help collect different information including some cave art that was found during that time. To help increase our knowledge of the people during that time and really immerse ourselves in the topic, we will have Stone Age day where we will go digging like archaeologists, become hunter gatherers and create our own cave art.
