The Year 3 team have been thinking of everyone at home during our first week of social distancing. We hope you and your families are all doing OK. 

It has been great to keep in touch with the fabulous learning at home that has been sent to Do keep it coming. Here are the edited highlights.

Iron Age Hill Fort

On our final Friday together we had a fun finale to our 'Mists of Time' topic. The children spent the day learning about and then constructing their own Iron Age houses. Then, by the end of the day, we combined these to create our very own Celtic hill fort. Have a look at their fabulous efforts...

Easter Holidays

Hello everyone,

As we know, next week marks the start of the Easter Holidays (but not as we have ever known them before).  We appreciate that some of you will be finding your own ways of keeping your families happy and healthy and that others will appreciate a little more structure and guidance. With that in mind, we are providing some ideas for learning for the two weeks of the Easter Holidays. The whole school community (whether at home or in school) will have the same theme; by doing this we will be able to share and celebrate some of your creative endeavours on our new school Face Book page (Dore Primary Community Page- you will have received an email invite). Please, do not at all feel pressured in any way to see this as a check list or a requirement (no one is checking!). At this moment in time the best thing to do is whatever is best for your family.

 Easter Holidays Week 1     –    The Wind in the Willows (see A4 page)

-      Create a ‘Sunshine’ to display in your windows

 Easter Holidays Week 2    –    The Time we spring cleaned the world (see A4 page)

-      Create an ‘Easter’ picture to display in your windows

 Just a reminder of other key recommendations:

 Watch this space….. Mr Percy has some ideas to write/ produce a song.

posted 19 Mar 2020, 05:47 by Richard Hanks

Here is the first timetable to support children's learning whilst school is closed.

Y3GD and Y4H have used slightly different timetable this term, so this week's timetables are slightly different.

Any photos of projects / work produced can be emailed to: Please put your child’s initials and the lesson the work is relevant to in the subject of the email (e.g. RF 23.3 – history)

The Year 3 team wish you all the best, we'll miss you and look forward to seeing you as soon as we can.

Fun - Not at Creswell Crags

posted 18 Mar 2020, 04:42 by Richard Hanks

The Year 3 children were obviously disappointed not to get to Creswell Crags yesterday, but they were incredibly resilient and positive and had a super day together. We spent most of the day outdoors having a picnic, extra playtime, studying rocks and mostly creating land art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.

Science Week in Year 3

posted 15 Mar 2020, 11:31 by Julie Davison

We have enjoyed Science Week in Y3 with lots of visitors to our assemblies. We were lucky to have Mr Erlam, who is an engineer for Rolls Royce, visit Y3 to tell us all about life as an engineer. He set us all a task to make a wing to test just how the weight of the air around us can effect how things move and travel. We had great fun designing and testing them outside on a very windy afternoon! 

We have also been busy carrying out our own mini scientific investigations which have given us opportunities to think, talk and reason scientifically. Have a look...
