During the second half of this term, in our History, we are enjoying learning about the Romans in Britain. We have found out about how Boudicca bravely battled against the Romans and this week we discovered that there was a Roman Emperor from Africa called Septimius Severus who lived in Britain!

Year 3 Blog - Summer term 2023

Welcome to our Summer term blog!

The Summer term is here and we have wasted no time in getting started on our new units of work. In our Art lesson this week we have looked at different portraits and in Geography we have discussed how we spend our recreation, leisure and work time.

In a few weeks we will be going on a local walk to Cheshunt Park and our School trip to the Lee Valley is also coming up this half term, where we will be looking at living things and their habitats. We have a lot of learning and events to look forward to!

Today we created our profile collages of King Charles to celebrate his coronation. Coronation art

Today we carried out fieldwork in our local area. We walked from school to Cheshunt Park reading our maps as we went and thinking about how we spend our time in the local area. We were very lucky with the weather!

Year 3 sandwich making workshop. Lyn from Tesco came to school to make sandwiches with us. We each made a sandwich and they had various fillings and we used different types of bread. Once made we tasted the different sandwiches. We really enjoyed the workshop and some of us discovered that we liked new textures and flavours.

Year 3 Blog Autumn term 2023

Welcome to the Year 3 Autumn blog!

Please click here to see our homework grid for this half term. 

It has been really lovely getting to know all the Year 3 children. We have been super impressed with how they have settled into life in KS2, learning new routines and how we do things. I'm sure that their eagerness and effort will continue as the term progresses.

The children were very interested and enthusiastic to start our new text in our English lessons about fables. We are reading War and Peas by Michael Foreman. They have enjoyed describing the two Kings in the story and are keen to find out what happens.

This week the children in Year 3 have been enjoying practising their watercolour techniques in preparation for our work about JMW Turner.

They have also done some fabulous stained-glass homework.

We had a great start to our half term today because we started our new History unit of work about Stone Age Britain with a visit from Charlotte who works at the Epping Forest museum. She brought with her Stone Age artefacts that were found near to our school and we were able to handle the objects that were thousands of years old!

On Friday 9th February, the year 3 children celebrated mental health day.

At Flamstead End, we understand and prioritise the mental well-being of our pupils. We believe that fostering a positive learning environment includes recognising the importance of individuality and self-expression. The theme this year was ‘Our Voice Matters’ and involved the children taking part in Drama and Wellbeing workshops and having a day devoted to understanding their mental wellbeing better.
