Year Three

We are INTERNET LEGENDS!
The guys from Google visited to tell us all about internet safety. They gave lots of advice as well as being very entertaining!
RNLI Visit - October 2018
The RNLI lifeguards came to visit to teach us all about keeping safe near water, particularly at the beach.  We had lots of fun, saw lots of interesting equipment, but most of all, we know how to keep safe!
Quicksticks Hockey Festival
Year 3 had a great time at the Quicksticks hockey festival playing against other schools from the Sunderland area. They tried their best in every game! Well done year 3.
Year 3 P.E
Year 3 have been enjoying learning the game Hockey! Their dribbling, passing and shooting skills are improving week on week! 
The Archaeological Dig (In POO!)
The Stone Age people lived in pre-historic times, (that means before history has been recorded or written) so we rely on archaeologist findings for information.  Year 3 gave it a try and investigated first hand what people ate thousands of years ago.  We found lots of evidence of different types of food, including bones, fruits, leaves, nuts and seeds.
Who lives in a house like this?
We have been investigating similarities and differences between our homes and how they changed in design over time.  Look at our stone age homes made from clay.
The Bible Came Alive!
We walked to Hetton Independent Methodist Church to listen to stories about the life of Jesus.  The stories were great and we really liked the Roman soldier.  We also got juice and some sweet treats!
Tyre Fun!
Year 3 spent time working together and having fun, making good use of our new tyres as part of OPAL.  The ideas are endless!
Year 3 Visit to Seaham Beach and Marina
We all had a fantastic day at the beach, playing in the sand, flying kites, playing football, catch and paddling in the sea.  The best part of the day was visiting the shops for sweets and ice cream. 
Chick Fractions
Year 3 visited the newly hatched chicks for a little cuddle, but couldn't resist using them to help with their Maths! The children found 10 chicks in total, and worked out 4/10 were boys and 6/10 were girls.
Touch Tying Success!
Year 3 are learning to touch type.  We know how to sit safely at the computer and can name each of our fingers and the letter keys they should control.  We also know the home, top and bottom keys.  We are working hard to type quicker!
Year 3 Road Safety
Year 3 have been spending time finding out about and practising how to cross the road safely.
World Book Day with Year 3
Year 3 had lots of fun dressing up and taking part in World Book Day activities! Can you guess the characters we are dressed up as?
WE'VE GOT MAIL!
Year 3 spent time learning how to send and receive emails.  We can even add attachments, change fonts and send to multiple people.
Get Spelling!
Year 3 like to work together to investigate the spellings and meanings of new words.
