Easter Challenge

Well done to all of the children in Year 3 who completed the Easter Challenge! We are super proud of you all.


Year 3 club

In Year 3 club, we made our own Pandora’s Box. We tried to make them attractive because Pandora was tempted to open the box. We mixed primary colours to make secondary colours to decorate the boxes.



In Geography, we used atlases and globes to locate and name countries in Europe. The countries we labelled were the UK and Greece. Then, we used the contents and index in the atlas to help up locate some cities in Greece. We labelled our map to show some important places in Greece’s history.


e love to read in Year 3 and have been working hard in guided reading and enjoying the opportunity to read independently in the library, as well as listening to the teachers read our new class novel “Who Let the Gods Out”, written by Maz Evans.


In History, we used a timeline to place historical events into chronological order. The dates we looked at all happened BC. We used our maths skills of ordering three-digit numbers to help us.


In History, we have been comparing Ancient Greece to what the U.K is like today. We looked at democracy, and the differences and similarities between democracy in the U.K and what it was like in Ancient Greece. We thought that democracy in Ancient Greece wasn’t fair because people were often discriminated against because of their age, gender and nationality.
