January 2023 – Happy New Year

The children have settled back into their classes beautifully, it’s great to start the new term. This term’s topic will be ‘Vikings and Anglo-Saxons’. We will also read ‘How to train your dragon’ in English and will base our own adventure story on this text.

Please see below the topic overview.

Year 3 had a fabulous trip to Nottingham City Centre yesterday. We have looked at different areas in the City, sketched different buildings and looked at their purpose.

We will use all this knowledge for our writing in English over the next few weeks.





Ash class have enjoyed eating the bread we have been baking yesterday!

We are also looking forwards to our Roman Day on Friday – please dress up.

Y3 4 Overview Autumn 2


We have had a very busy week in year 3 this week. On Tuesday, we went to visit the Canal Side Heritage Centre in Beeston, learning about Diwali. We have completed 3 different activities:

  1. We have read the story of Rama and Sita
  2. We created some beautiful Diva lamps out of clay – these will be sent home soon
  3. We completed a scavenger hunt, learning about Diwali!





On Wednesday, we have had our second Let’s get session at school – this is to reward us for our great behaviour. Children picked different activities like Football, Board games, Cooking or Sewing.

Have a good half term everyone!
