Y3 4 Topic Overview Summer 1


The children have had a brilliant half-term! We finished our topic ‘The Vikings’ by designing, making and evaluating our longships. Have a look at some of the examples, they are fabulous!


We wish you all a very good Easter break and are looking forward to the Summer term!




The children were really lucky to take part at an Easter workshop, run by the Rylands Community Church. The children enjoyed the workshop and have learnt about Easter in different ways. They were a credit to our school.

World Book Day

Well done to all the children for bringing in their props for their favourite characters.

We had a good guess in class!

The children have had a lovely day reading books and learning about the authors. We ended the day with a whole school assembly, where each class presented something about the author they have been learning about.

Can you work out what characters the children were?

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!
