Keep an eye out for upcoming events.



Bring Me Sunshine Y3 Summer 2 Newsletter

Brilliant fundraising events! 3L have gone above and beyond raising money from cake sales and designing bookmarks to sell! VERY proud.

We have been baking scones and printing our own bunting today ready for the Afternoon Tea fundraiser!

Show and Share! It is always great to see so many special items which the children are really proud of.

Welcome back!

Miss Latcham, Ms Allison and Mrs Rogers hope you have all had a fantastic and well deserved rest. We have lots of exciting things planned for you all during our new Rainforest topic...

Welcome back to a new half-term!

Miss Latcham, Mrs Allison and Mrs Rogers hope you have all had a lovely break. frown


Our new themed topic is based on Folk, Fable and Fairytales. We are making hand-puppets as part of a DT project and we have been exploring the traditional tale of 'Rumpelstiltskin' so that we could create our own story following this style!



A fantastic performance of 'Hoodwinked' by all of year 3! You really were fabulous!!

We've been having a go at some performance poetry. It was great fun!

Have a listen to our versions of 'Louder' by Roger Stevens and 'Surrounded by Noise!' By Ian Soulter.

Welcome back!

Class 3L are delighted to be joined by Mrs Allison and Mrs Rogers!

We have lots of exciting activities planned for our new topic...

We have been looking at fractions and today we compared bags of skittles to see what fraction of each colour there was in each! We LOVED this! We had to count the denominator first...

Class 3L love to show their special items! They have brought lots of things in including this beautiful Pyramid picture on Papyrus!

Walk like an Egyptian Newsletter Spring 1 2016

We have enjoyed designing and creating our Egyptian amulets today out of clay! Horus became an Egyptian ruler after he won a battle. During this battle he lost his eye, so the 'Eye of Horus' became a symbol of protection.

Here is a freeze frame of the Mummification process!

This morning, class 3L became embalmers! We mummified tomatoes by removing all the insides and then covered them with salt! This is so that we can see how the mummification process was used to preserve the bodies!

We have been busy creating our own Pyramid paintings using watercolors! They look fabulous, well done 3L!!

Miss Latcham and all of the Year 3 team wish you a Merry Christmas!

Have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you all again soon for our next topic!



P.S. Don't forget to bring a shoe box in before Friday 8th January 2016


Welcome back Year 3! smiley


Miss Latcham, Mrs Allison and Mrs Macdonald are excited about beginning a new topic with you this half-term...



We shall be learning all about our cute, little hedgehog friends. We will research their physical features and characteristics, their diet, habitat and their winter hibernation. We will also consider why their numbers have been reduced to dangerous levels and what we can do to try and help encourage hedgehog survival in our local area.
We will also use the clichéd 'Why did the hedgehog cross the road?' jokes to focus on road safety. We will role play crossing the road safely, design posters with road safety messages and share our learning with a younger year group.
After our successful Afternoon Tea, we will put our baking skills to the test again and bake something hedgehoggy! 




3L have had a lovely couple of days and are feeling very festive!

All the Hedgehog Shelters have been sent home ready for Hedgehogs in hibernation!

Goodbye Mrs Bousfield! We brought our bears in to celebrate Mrs Bousfield's time at Torrisholme :)

We have been busy with Christmas Crafts and have made beautiful calendars for the New Year 2016!!
