Year 3

Rock Detectives: Science

Still image for this video
During Science, Year 3 have been looking at different types of rocks and comparing their properties. Our children have been amazed by the different rocks they have found. They are observing closely, comparing and investigating, as well as recording their findings in increasingly varied ways. What a super start to our Science topic for Spring term. Well done Year 3.

Our Year 3 class shared their learning in our final class assembly in December. They performed a superb performance to the whole school, speaking audibly, acting with clarity and confidence and shared their learning across the curriculum with the whole school community. I am so proud of you all. Well done Year 3.

Science Week

During this exciting week Year 3 have been involved in a number of workshops including, the study of light, amazing chemistry experiments and excavating dinosaur bones with a palaeontologist! The children hove conducted their own experiments and made predictions and recorded their results. We have looked at the bones of the human skeleton and how they interconnect. We have also been lucky enough to have a visit from Mrs. Mehmood who delivered a fantastic, insightful lesson on the human eye. Myself and the children in Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed this theme week and are feeling inspired for the rest of our science topics this school year!

Road Safety Day

In Year 3 this week we learnt some very important things about keeping safe on the roads; a couple of these things were that all children under 135cm tall must be in a booster seat in a car at all times and that all passengers must have a seat belt on no matter how long or short the journey.

The Year 3 children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and responded to the talks very responsibly.

A welcome message from Miss Doherty to Year 3 and their families:


I hope you are all looking forward to the new school year as much as I am.  This is my first year as a class teacher and I feel very lucky to be starting my teaching career with the wonderful children of St. Anthony’s.  I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you and getting started with all the fun learning we will have on our journey through the school year.  During our first term we are going to be authors, writing stories about familiar settings.  We will look at how plants grow and even draw some flowers in the style of famous artists.  This is only to mention a few of the new and interesting things we will be looking at this school year.


I am very much looking forward to working with you all, and the fun, joy and laughter we will have along the way.


Here are some things to help you:

  • Please remember your PE kit must be in school at all times.  (Indoor – white top and black shorts.  Outdoor – black tracksuit and trainers). Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursdays. 
  • Read every night and talk about what you have read.  Make sure an adult records this in your diary!
  • Practise your spellings each day.  The ‘look, cover, write, check’ method and learning the spelling rule will help you.  Spelling tests will take place on a Wednesday.
  • Learn your times tables (3, 4 and 8 are the focus in year 3).
  • Our library day will be Tuesday mornings. Please remember to bring your library book and change this before school from 8.35am-8.45am. 

Here’s to a fantastic year as we learn together in faith!


Miss Doherty.
