Year 3 – Woodpecker and Kingfisher classes

Woodpecker – Mrs Fairweather

Kingfisher – Miss Mandziuk

Welcome to Year 3 have a very exciting curriculum and our Wonder topics include Ancient Egypt, Romans, The Stone Age, Rivers, our Extreme Earth and The Rainforest. We have had such fun planning these topics and have tried to include visits or visitors linked with the topics throughout the year. This year we had a great day out at The Roman Baths and also went to Bristol Zoo for a rainforest experience.

We embrace the outdoors and try to use our fantastic grounds for as many different lessons as we can. In addition to a term of Forest School in our wooded area, we have made shadow clocks (measuring and planting variety of plants and vegetables science/maths) and written stories using the grounds as a stimulus.

We were also lucky to take part in The Hub, where children had the opportunity to experience playing a range of games in the iconic sporting arenas of Bath. In the summer term, we will join with other schools in a big Hub festival.

All the children have had expert coaching in singing through The Bath Abbey Singing Programme and also learnt the recorder. They have performed in front of the children a number of times including Y3 children the Y3/4 pantomime (Alice The Musical) at Christmas and a recorder concert to the parents.
