Year Three

Before the half term, Class 8 had a fantastic morning with Pops! They made spray paint artwork of the Egyptian pyramids and they used clay to make an Egyptian cartouche!

Over the Easter holidays, Wickersley Partnership Trust held an Easter competition, which was open to all students across the Trust primary and secondary schools. The challenge was to take an Easter themed selfies/photo or create a design. A massive well done to Phoebe in Y3 for winning a prize and certificate for her ‘Egg Sheeran’ […]

Last week all of Y3 ventured over to Sheffield to Weston Park Museum to enrich our knowledge on our theme Ancient Greece. On top of recreating a story about Zeus and his daughter Athena, we built the Parthenon with the help of our host Karen. We then had the opportunity to walk around the museum [...]
Y3 took one small step for Monkwood by taking part in a planetarium experience. Colin, our host, told us lots of exciting things about space and even where astronauts poop. The children couldn’t believe their eyes with the dome-shaped screen. We spent all morning laying down stargazing.
Y3 had a fantastic morning with Pops. The children had to set a challenge for the other team who then had to complete it blindfolded! Great teamwork Year 3!
In art, Y3 put their clay skills to the test by creating some clay tiles. They took inspiration from the artist Bruce Howdle and from Stone Age cave paintings.

Can we all take a moment for our fantastic Phoebe from Year 3 who has had her hair cut to donate to the ‘Little Princess Trust’. What an amazingly brave and selfless thing to do! Doesn’t she look beautiful with her new hairstyle? Well done Phoebe we are super proud of you! 👸🏽 👑 💇🏽‍♀️

Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been working with Pops to create their very own Iron Age hill fort. We used natural resources to make this and the children had an amazing time. We even got to sit all comfy and warm around a roaring fire.
The anti-bullying week has started with odd socks day! This year the theme is all around being kind to others. Year 3 has worked hard by looking at different bullying scenes. They used drama to act them out, discussed different emotions, and explained what could be done to prevent or make the situation better. All [...]
In art, Y3 has started looking at sculptures and models. To link to our learning journey about prehistoric Britain we have focussed on Stonehenge. We worked together using 3D nets to recreate a model of Stonehenge. Everyone played a huge part in making the model a success. Look at the fantastic work that was produced [...]
