On these pages you will find important information about life in Year 3, including our termly topic sheet, and photos of the Year 3 Staff, so you can put a face to the names your child mentions. Please also take the time to visit the Learning in Year 3 page for photos of recent activities and examples of the children’s work.
We are on duty on the Key Stage 2 playground after school on Monday. Do catch us if you would like a quick chat, or, if you want to talk in more depth, you can also arrange an appointment by sending in a note, or contacting the school office.

World Book Day
To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 7th March, all pupils at Queen Edith dressed up as animals! Look below at some of our lovely photos.
We all linked our English work to the book Welcome by Barroux. Reception children made their own islands inspired by those in the book. Year 1 designed a welcoming place for the monkeys from the story to stay in. Year 4 wrote inner monologues imagining that they were in that situation. Later Years pupils looked at Welcome and also Leaf, The Day War Came, The Island and The Arrival and found out about refugees around the world before writing diary entries, imagining that they were in that situation.

Years 3 and 4 Treasure Chest Cuboids
Children from Year 3 and Year 4 have combined learning maths with our pirate-themed production to produce treasure chests. The 3D shape of a treasure chest is a cuboid, so we cut out a net, then folded and glued the flaps carefully. We decorated our cuboids to look like treasure chests.
Here are some photos of the class drawing around each other and drawing in their internal organs! It was huge fun, now we just have to add the bones!
