Year 3 2018/19

Autumn 2 Term - Bah Humbug!

Last half term the children were immersed in Victorian times with a focus on Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'.

After several weeks of practice and hard work, the children showcased their many talents performing 'A Christmas Carol' to rave reviews. Well done to everyone (narrators, actors, dancers, singers) for a series of wonderful performances that really put us all in the festive spirit.

Autumn 1 Term - The History Van

To end the half term and celebrate all the hard work the children have done over the past 7 weeks we travelled back in time with 'The History Van'.

'The History Van' arrived to take the children on an exciting journey to ancient times through a series of workshops including role play, jewellery making and Egyptian dancing! We enjoyed a fun-packed day of Egyptian antics. Check out our epic Egyptian dances, fearsome battle and terrifying mummies.

Autumn 1 Term - Pharaoh's Promise

As you know, in Year 3 we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We have learned so much about the geography and history of Ancient Egypt and we've had a lot of fun doing so! We have developed our clay skills creating replica canopic jars, danced like Egyptians and even mummified tomatoes!!

Autumn 1 Term - Y3 Benchball Festival

On Monday 15th October, two teams of Y3 pupils took part in a Benchball Festival at Bradfield School, competing against other teams of Y3 pupils from our family of schools.

All the children taking part performed extremely well, showing great teamwork skills, fantastic sportsmanship and represented Nook Lane incredibly well. One team even took the third place title!

It was a fantastic event and all of the children went home with red faces and huge smiles! Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all of the parents who came along to support!

Autumn 1 Term - Y3 visit to the Mandir

On Thursday 27th September all of Year 3 visited the Hindu Mandir and Community Centre in Sheffield. For all of the children (and adults!) this was their first trip to a Hindu Temple so there was much excitement and curiosity as we were unsure of what to expect.

After removing our shoes, Dr Patel welcomed us into the temple and gave us a thought-provoking talk all about the Hindu religion and their beliefs. He really emphasised the importance of respecting others, particularly your elders, and told us the stories behind many of the Hindu Gods.

After questions and answers we were able to sketch some of features of the beautiful shrine which included some of the Gods we had talked about at school such as Rama, Sita and Ganesh.

We would like to thank the Hindu Community Centre for welcoming us so warmly into the temple!
