Term 5

In term 5, we have been learning about ‘Stone Age to Bronze Age’. As we have been learning about this we went on a Stone Age day at Kent Life, we learnt about how they lived, including how they used to communicate through cave paintings, which we had a go at ( see pictures). We also met a Cave man called ‘Claw’, he gave us our own Stone Age names. As well as all this we got to grind our own flour and learn about Stone Age weapons!


In maths we have been learning about angles and different types of lines, we went outside and drew shapes with right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles on the playground. See pictures.


Term 4

In term 4, we have been learning about Scotland and the UK. We have been learning a Ceilidh dance for our assembly at the end of term as well as thinking about the different celebrations that take place in Scotland.

In English we have become reporters, making our own reporter booklets and learning all about the first men on the moon: Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The children found their own quotes and watched the moon landing happen. We have also been writing non-chronological reports on unicorns, basilisks, phoenixes and the Loch Ness Monster, coming up with fantastic descriptions and accurate technical vocabulary.

In maths we have been learning all about fractions. We have discovered that fractions are a whole split into equal parts. We have begun to use the correct terms of denominator and numerator as well as using a mixture of things, (including cakes) to help us find fractions of shapes and amounts.

In science we have doing experiments about solutions and dissolving. We experimented with the best solvent to remove nail varnish as well as investigating metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous rocks and drawing our own diagrams of these.



Term 3

In term 3, we have been learning about Norway, Canada and South Africa. We have been acting out play scripts on African tales, and writing our own including African animals as our characters. Below are pictures of us acting them out using props!


We also have been making African animal masks in art to use when we act out our own play scripts. See pictures below.

In maths we have been learning all about time. Telling the time using digital and analogue clocks and recording on stopwatches, how long it takes to do different activities.

In science we have doing experiments about solutions and dissolving. We experimented putting a mento into a diet coke bottle, it was very exciting!!

Term 2

This term, Year 3 have been working extremely hard on their writing. They have been writing instructions and employing imperative verbs and also persuading aliens to visit Sittingbourne!  Next term, the children will be creating brochures about Sittingbourne!

In Maths, the children have been learning new concepts and methods.  For example, they have been looking at how to use a multiplication grid to solve mathematical problems.  They have also been learning how to use the short method for division.  Ask them a question to see what they have learnt!

In Science, the year group have been learning about electricity. They have been investigating circuits and establishing how to create a burglar alarm!  Well done, Year 3!










Term 1

This term, Year 3 have been working extremely hard on their Topic of the Stone Age. During lessons, we have looked at how the first people made homes, hunted and made art. Year 3 have also been taking their learning home and working very hard at producing these amazing pieces of homework! The children have made a variety of work from posters, PowerPoints, drawings and creating their very own model Stone Age homes! Very well done Year 3!



Year 3 have also been writing poems about autumn and the Harvest festival. To help inspire our ideas, we have been out and about collecting all things autumn from our playground and school field.  The children have so far written a range of poems from Acrostic, Haiku and rhyming poems. They were already poets and they didn’t know it! Excellent work Year 3!
