This week has been ‘Healthy Eating Week: Give it a Go!’ and in Year 3 the class have been busy on following the themes of:

  • Get at least 5 A DAY
  • Stay hydrated
  • Move more
  • Focus on fibre
  • Reduce food waste

On Wednesday the children designed their own smoothies and created a smoothie that contained apple juice, banana, apple, spinach and wild berries.  We were impressed that many children tried all ingredients!


In Maths the children have continued to revisit addition and subtraction work in fluency ensuring they can check their answers to calculations using the inverse and in our main maths work, we have returned to reading the time displayed on both analogue and digital clocks.

In English, we read the text Gregory Cool. It is a story about a boy who goes to spend four weeks with his grandparents in Tobago. We discussed character feelings and built up our inference skills.

In RE the children have started their topic work on Discipleship learning about Mark the gospel writer.

In our light topic in Science, the children also recognised that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object.

We received the results from last week’s Hertfordshire’s Maths Challenge. Well done to Noemi, Dafne, Christian, Hugo and Lucas who are now going through to the next round!

Wishing you and your families a good weekend.
