This half term, we have been looking at how land is used in the local area.  We have enjoyed visits to Ryecroft Park, a virtual tour of the Snipe Retail Park and a walk to Ashton Moss Nature Reserve.  In class, we have been recording some of our findings in our Google Classroom and we've been drawing maps of the local area.  Below are some of the photos taken on our adventures!

Ryecroft Park (during Great Big Green Week)


We enjoy our maths.  Here we are using our place value grids and counters to investigate number.

Design and Technology

In DT, we have become soup testers.  We then designed and made our own nutritional soup and included different foods from the different food groups.  After we had made our soup, we evaluated it and most of us decided that it was delicious!  

National Fitness Day

We took part in National Fitness Day on Wednesday 22nd September.  Key Stage 2 gathered in the playground and had an energetic workout with Mrs Hind.

George's Marvellous Medicine

We are really enjoying this great book by Roald Dahl.  Today (20th September), we created our own amazing potions.  We explored different parts of the playground where we found lots of interesting ingredients.  Have a look at our photos below.

On the quiz page, there is a quiz about Ancient Egypt.

Just a quick reminder for anyone not too sure about our maths methods.

Think of 10 two digit numbers and double them using the diamond method. Think of 10 two digit even numbers and halve them using the diamond method. Log on to TTRockstars and practise your times tables. Log onto Active Learn and play the games set for you. Log on to Topmarks and practise your number facts in Hit the Button.
Practice telling the time using an analogue and digital clock.   Choose two 3-digit numbers and use frog to work out the difference. Roll a dice (or make your own set of digit cards from 0-9) to make 2 digit or 3 digit numbers. Put them on a number line in order. Explain to a grown-up how to play Buzz Off Sit Down. Make a list of right angles that you can find in your house.
Draw shapes and show these fractions: ⅓, ¼, ⅙, ⅛, 2/7, 5/9, 6/10. Draw round different shaped objects at home.  Describe the properties of the shape. Read your reading book from school. Read a book you have at home. Do a book review on a book you have read. You could put it on a Google doc and share with your teacher.
Write a set of instructions about how to do something in your house e.g how to make toast. Practise your spellings from year 3. Choose some of your spellings to write in a sentence. Write a diary or recount of what you did yesterday. Write an acrostic poem using the word ‘EGYPTIANS’.
Design or make a canopic jar. Make up your own dance to ‘Walk like an Egyptian’  or ‘Sand Dance’
Draw a skeleton and label  the bones. Carry out some research about Cleopatra. Make a Google doc or slide about a topic of your choice e.g. favourite hobby/football team.

Spring 2019

This term our research topic is 'Extreme Earth'.  We will be learning about volcanoes, earthquakes and planet earth.  In science, we are going to explore forces and magnets.  We are starting a new English unit of work on explanation texts.  Wallace and Gromit will feature in our work as well as some other amazing contraptions.  We launched our English work by building marble runs, then, we designed our own and worked together to build our own marble runs.  

Marble Runs

Look at the photos of us working together on our marble runs.


In R.E, we have been looking at how different religions celebrate important festivals.  Today (19th November) we were learning about how Hindus celebrate Diwali.  People often use Rangoli patterns to decorate the floors so we went into the playground and created our own Rangoli patterns using chalk.

George's Marvellous Medicine

In English, we enjoyed making our own amazing potions.  We are now writing our own versions of this wonderful story by Roald Dahl.

Autumn 2019



Welcome to 3F - 2019/2020

Welcome to 3F's class page.  The children have had a wonderful first week back at school and have been working hard.  In English, we have started to read George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl and are looking forward to making our own 'magical' potions.  During our maths lessons, we have been partitioning numbers, comparing numbers and practising our times tables.  



Our theme for this half term is 'Food, Glorious Food!'  We will be learning about nutrition in science, as well as creating our own healthy soups.  

Keep checking our class page as soon, we will be adding photos of some of the great learning that has been going on in our classroom.

On Tuesday 12th March, some visitors from Tameside School Games came in to work with us.  Five activities were set up including, Pirate Plank, Make a Racket and Zig-Zag.  We were set a personal challenge which was to beat our own scores/times on each activity.  We really enjoyed ourselves.

Doing the Pirate Plank and more....

World Book Day

On Thursday 7th March, we celebrated World Book Day.  We dressed up as different book characters, took part in lots of different book activities and, along with the rest of the school, enjoyed the story Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae.  Have a look at our photos and see if you can work out who we dressed up as.

We have started the second half term with our new English topic which is play scripts.  On Monday 25th January, we worked with a partner and started to identify some of the features of plays and play scripts.  We talked about plays that we had seen, including school plays.  At the end of this unit of work, we are hoping to put on a play for the other Year 3 this space!

Rocks and Fossils

This term, we have been learning about rocks and fossils.  We made careful observations of different rocks and used magnifying glasses to look even closer.  In our books, we then described the rocks using interesting adjectives.  We enjoyed learning about fossils and the life of Mary Anning.

Making careful observations

Stone Age Day

On Tuesday 29th January, our class took part in a Stone Age workshop.  We learnt all about Stone Age tools, Stone Age food and Stone Age clothes.

Autumn 2018

Welcome to 3F's class page.  The children have settled in really well and are working hard.  This term, our research topic is 'Local History and Georgraphy'.  As part of our learning, we will be visiting the local Moravian settlement in Droylsden, going to Ryecroft Hall and visiting Clayton Hall.  In science, we will be learning about food and nutrition, skeletons and muscles.




Clayton Hall 2018

On Thursday 13th December, we enjoyed a magical day out at Clayton Hall.  In the morning, we had a very special visit from Father Christmas.  After singing some songs, talking with Father Christmas and receiving a present, we took part in some Christmas crafts where we made some Victorian Christmas decorations/toys.

After dinner, we dressed up as Victorian children and went round the different rooms in Clayton Hall.  In each room, there were activities to do and we found out lots of interesting information.  We had a great day out and we thank all the volunteers at Clayton Hall for a wonderful experience.

Healthy Eating

As part of our science topic about food and nutrition, we made our own healthy soup.  We brought in lots of different vegetables including onions, broccoli, potatoes and peppers, then we chopped them all up, added some water and waited!

Working Together in Maths and English

This week we have been working well together.  In maths, we have been learning about the properties of 2D shapes and sorting them into a Venn diagram.  As part of our work in English, about George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, we have been creating our own adverts for a magic potion.

Our Visit to the Moravian Settlement in Droylsden

On Tuesday 18th September we visited the Fairfield Moravian settlement.  We had a great morning and learned lots of interesting facts about the settlement.  In the first part of the morning, we went into the church and had a walk around the 'village'.  After that, we took part in 3 activities which were looking at old artefacts, dressing up as a Moravian settler and looking around the small, but fascinating, museum.

Have a look at our slide show to see for yourself!
