We are front page news! Our Maypole Dancing at the May Fair on the Green in Winscombe was featured in the Cheddar Valley Gazette on Thursday 18th May.

A huge thank you goes to Mrs. Cureton who came into school to share her expertise and teach us how to dance so brilliantly round the maypole.

Here are some additional photos taken by Miss Perry who kindly accompanied the children on the day.

Teacher - Miss Willows

We are lucky to have fabulous LSAs supporting in Year 3 - Mrs. Stevens everyday, Mrs. Griffin (Mon and Fri), Mrs. Horwood (Tues and Weds) and Mrs. Worthy (Thurs).

We also have dedicated volunteers who come in each week -  Mrs.Owen and Mrs. Sharkey enjoy being read to and Mrs. Heath and Mrs. Hunt love taking Year 3 to our school library.

 

 

Year 3 Reminders

Please have your PE kit in school every day! We are finding that children are wearing them home from after school clubs and not bringing them back into school. We have PE on Mondays and Fridays.

Homework is given on a Thursday and due in the following Wednesday (unless otherwise stated).

Thank You.

Science Show

On Tuesday 16th May, Year 3 and Year 6 were invited to a science show at NSETC. Dr. Alison Rivett from Bristol University wowed us with some fascinating experiments. Thank you to all the helpers who accompanied Year 3 and a special thank you to our Governor Emma Cox for inviting us. Here are a selection of short clips that showcase the session.

Welcome to Term 5. Our topic this term is 'Welcome to the Rainforest' - a geography based topic.

 

We have already been researching areas of the world that have rainforests and have been interested in all the animals that live in them.

 

Our Roman WOW Day

To mark the end of our Roman topic, Year 3 held a Roman Day. We had a visit from a roman soldier followed by basket weaving, mosaic printing, dressing roman soldiers on an interactive activity and making roman coins. Take a look at the pictures to see what a great day we had.

 

Wheelchair Basketball

 

Kevin Ogborne, based at Gordano, visited the school to share his love of 'Wheelchair Basketball'. His aspiration is to be a coach for Team GB in the 2020 paralympics in Tokyo. You can see from the pictures below, we all had a great time. Watch the short clip of someone scoring a basket!

And he scores!!

Year 3 Swimming

Unfortunately, due to maintenance work at the pool, our swimming sessions have been delayed until Term 6. As you can appreciate, this decision is entirely out of hands but we do look forward to going to the newly refurbished pool in the summer when, hopefully, the sun will be shining!

We have started reading 'Across the Roman Wall' by Theresa Breslin

Our corridor display shows Year 3 on or near Hadrian's Wall.

 

The two main characters from the book, Marinetta and Lucius first meet when he nearly runs her over in his chariot - they don't start off the best of friends!
