Year 3 Events Gallery 2018-19

Take a look at some of the great things we have been doing in our class.


River Deep, Mountain High - May 2019

Year 3 have been down to Leesbrook to explore the features of a river. We spent the morning in our wellies measuring and comparing different parts of a river. We had lots of fun measuring the flow of the river by racing dog biscuits!

Stone Age Trip - May 2019

Year 3 had such an exciting experience at Hollingworth Lake Forest School. We spent half of the day exploring the lake for wildlife and signs of spring. We then spent the other half of the day learning and experiencing how the people in the Stone Age lived. We even collected resources and made our very own fire!

Stone Age Trip - May 2019


World Book Day - March 2019

Today was World Book Day and we had a great assembly. Some of the teachers were dressed up as characters from ‘The Jolly Postman’ and they acted it out whilst Mrs. Ragan read the story.  Later on we went to the Lees Library and listened to ‘The Twits’ read by one of the librarians. We has to listen really well so that we could answer the questions in the quiz.

Christmas Party - December 2018

We have joined Year 4 to celebrate our Christmas Party. We played many games, Year 3 and 4 are excellent ‘musical bumpers’! Mr Hill and Miss Lawton found it very difficult to catch people out!

How do I Move? - December 2018

We have been spending some time looking at the sugar content in foods that we eat daily. Year 3 were very surprised at the recommended amount of sugar for adults and gave suggestions to their client’s to help them have more of a balanced diet. We have also looked at how our muscles work and used exercises to make our muscles work harder.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We have been looking at many different ways people in Oldham recycle their rubbish. We collected some of our own junk to reuse and create Christmas Decorations. We used many different materials that we would usually put in our recycling bin! We were very pleased with our results and painted them in Christmas colours.

Bob Marley Music Lesson - November 2018

British Values - November 2018

Our Year 3 classroom has been turned into a voting station this week. We have been using the book ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’ to carry out our very own campaign. We have had to collect data and present it using pictograms, present a speech to our voters and persuade others to vote for our crayon.

Investigating Light - October 2018

During our light topic we have been carry out a range of investigations to find out how light travels by using a range of different objects, torches and a very dark room! We now know that light only travels in straight lines and we need light for us to see, our eyes are definitely not a light source.   We have created whizzer wheels to represent the colours of the light spectrum.

Tom Catfish - October 2018

We would like to introduce Year 3’s class pet. Tom Cat Fish is a very spoilt catfish who is settling in brilliantly into our classroom.
