What have Year 3 been up to this half term? 


Year 3 have had a fantastic start to the term and have been working incredibly hard. Some highlights have included our trip to Hillier Garden, salad making, open morning and finding out who the first 3 winners of our reading raffle are. 

We hope you enjoy looking at these photos which give you a glimpse into life in Year 3. 

Hillier Garden's Visit. 


Thursday 13th October proved to be a beautiful autumnal day for Year 3's trip to the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens at Ampfield for a busy day of educational activities. Some of the activities we did included soil sampling, the decay game, mini-beast hunting and some drama.  

Super Salads! 

Our DT topic this half term has been learning about salads. We tasted a variety of different shop bought salads and rated them on appearance, taste, texture and smell. We then got creative and worked in groups to design our own group salads. Finally we got to make our salads, we made sure that we were very careful when using the knives and other kitchen equipment. The best part of the day was eating our salads! We were so full we nearly didn't have room for our lunch. 

Gymnastic Competition. 

This term we have been working very hard in PE to learn the routine for the intra gymnastic competition. Some key skills that we included were an arabesque, a half turn and a roll. We also performed a vault! 

Reading Raffle 

Congratulations to the first 3 winners of our Year 3 raffle who have each selected a book of their own choice. Well done!
