Try logging on to this website for lots of great activities      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 on to Active Learn and play the games set for you. Log on to Topmarks and practise your number facts in Hit the Button
Practise 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 in order on a number line. Explain to a grown-up how to play Buzz Off Hairy Legs. 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 home. 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.

We didn’t get chance to share our wonderful work with everyone, so here it is: Non chronological reports about Ancient Egypt

Here is some of the homework that we did about Egyptian Gods.

World Book Day- 5th March 2020

spring Term 1- 2020

What a creative half term it’s been. We started off designing and making marble runs. We wrote explanations for how these worked.

Designing and making marble runs

We learnt about how extreme planet Earth can be. We found out what the different parts of a volcano are called and did some superb art work using oil pastels.

NSPCC Number Day. We read ‘100 Marching Ants’ and looked at the different ways to make and arrange given numbers. We were also set a challenge to make a boat for Max and two of the Wild Things. The challenge included specific measurements, shapes and angles.

Autumn Term 2 


We have had a great half term learning all about the Stone Age, Bronze and Iron Age. Alongside this we have learnt about different types of rock as well as the greatest fossil hunter of all time- Mary Anning.


In Our R.E work we have been finding out about the Hindu festival of Diwali and how it is celebrated.


See below for some of the great work we have done:



How To Wash a Woolly Mammoth.
Writing instructions and making woolly mammoths.
Making Stone Age people.
Sorting rocks.
Stone Age day activities.
Making our own Stone Age teepee.

Handling and learning about artefacts.

Making our own fossils. Sweets instead of animals.
Bread for sedimentary layers of rock.
Being a fossil hunter like Mary Anning.
Making models of Stone Henge.

Working together to make Rangoli patterns.

   Autumn Term 1



What a great start we have all made to year 3! 


Days to remember:


P.E. Kits needed - Monday and Wednesday

Library Books changed - Monday

Homework sent home - Friday

Homework handed in  - Wednesday

Spellings and times tables tests - Friday


TT Rockstars is now up an running. Please encourage your child to learn their login and password and to keep this safe and private. Children can access their account from any device at home via the TT Rockstars website.


This half term our theme is 'Food Glorious Food'. 

We have started off our English unit with 'Georges Marvellous Medicine'. We have already written our own recipes for 'medicines' and made these ourselves. We decided Grandma certainly would not have liked them!

Further work themed around the story will include writing our own potion poems and writing another chapter to add to the book.


In our science work we have been learning about the different nutrition we get from various foods and how this helps to keep our bodies healthy and strong.

In Design and technology we have been thinking about different soup recipes and have made our own smooth vegetable soup.

We now know the french word for lots of vegetables and have written our own french soup recipes!


Spring Term 2019

What an interesting start we've had to the new year!  It all began in the Stone age. 

We had a visit from a Stone age expert who brought lots of artefacts such as Stone age pots and flints. We had to work in groups to try and decide what each item was used for. Our visitor was very impressed with our answers and knowledge!


We also looked at the different foods that people ate in the Stone age and talked about how they would have found them.

We looked at different types of fabrics and had to choose the most likely ones that people in the Stone age would have used for clothing. Again we did a great job of this.



Naming the artefacts.


We learnt all about Stonehenge and were amazed at how people could have built it without any modern machinery. Our Jenga brick models represent this amazing structure started towards the end of the Stone age.


Rocks and Fossils

Mrs Oakes will be the first to admit that this science topic was not as uninspiring as she first thought! We loved learning about rocks and fossils.

We found out about the three different types of rock and how they are formed. We had lots of different types of rocks in the classroom and were able to sort and categorise them. Some people brought in gemstones from home.


We watched a great video about a famous fossil hunter called Mary Anning and found out that she had discovered fossils over 200 years ago when she was just a little girl. We learnt about how fossils are formed by sandwiching jelly sweets between layers of bread and weighting it down over night. We can describe the difference between a cast and a mould fossil.


Mrs Clark brought in a mould fossil from Germany and Isabelle brought in a cast fossil that her dad had found on the beach as a little boy.


Jellied sweets are layered between slices of bread
They leave a mould fossil imprint.

Coming soon...........

We will be moving from the Stone age through to the Bronze and then Iron age. Watch out for our Stone age tent shelter changing into a more sophisticated round house!!

Autumn Term- September 2018


The children have all made a fantastic start to year 3 this week - Well done!


We have been talking about our class rules and the new routines and times for Key Stage 2.

We have read George's Marvellous Medicine and have been thinking of adjectives to describe George's Grandma.  In our maths work we have been partitioning numbers and revising our 2's, 10's and 5 times tables.


We have an exciting and packed term ahead. We will be looking at the illustrations of Quentin Blake as well as paintings by L.S. Lowry, and we will be drawing, painting and printing using some of the same styles and techniques.

In our Science work we are going to be looking at the different food groups and the nutrients they provide us.

We are learning to say different greetings and introductions in french, as well as finding out the french word for different body parts.

We will be getting out and about, firstly with our forth coming visit to the Fairfield Moravian Settlement on Tuesday 18th September and later on making a couple of visits to Ryecroft Hall and park.




Important Days:


P.E. this half term is on Tuesday and will be with Mr Rose who also teaches P.E. at Audenshaw High School. All children will need their full P.E. kit on this day.

   Visit to Fairfield Moravian Settlement - September 2018


    What a fantastic time we had at the Fairfield Moravian Settlement!

     We learnt about different objects that were used in the past as well as seeing what a typical bedroom would look like.

     We were lucky to be able to dress in traditional Moravian costumes and we learnt about how the colour of the 'sisters' bonnets depended on        whether they were single married or widowed.

      When we explored the outside area we found out about the job of the night watchman as well as where the cattle were kept overnight.

      When we went inside the church we learnt about the Lamb being the symbol of the Moravian church and about the different features such         as the font and the organ. We were told a special secret about the organ - but we're not allowed to tell anyone!

We look great in our costumes!

Learning about the church and different objects used over 200 years ago.

Christmas Fun!

We had a lovely time all together.
We made our own gifts too.
