Year 3 had an exciting end to our Billy Goats Gruff topic. The room was overrun with trolls and goats for the day! The goats were terrified as the trolls got their revenge, terrorising and teasing our goats. We even had a troll themed meal during the afternoon, enjoying goat’s cheese, goat’s eyeballs and even goat’s veins. Everyone had a fantastic day!
Welcome To Year 3
Meet the Year Group Teachers, Mrs Grimwood…
Hi, I’m Nikki Grimwood and I joined Oxclose Primary Academy in January 2015. I’ve moved all over KS2, working in Y5, Y4 and Y3! I completed my PGCE at Durham University and before that gained a degree in History and Criminology in Sheffield. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and taking our dog Sprocket on long walks.
and, Miss Newton
Science week was fantastic! We got to take part in a number of activities throughout the week and found out lots of new information along the way. One of the highlights was Wednesday afternoon when we took over the hall to find out all about dinosaurs and evolution in a number of ways, from the Tree of Life activity to working with our group to piece together a human skeleton! We even had a scaled drawing of a dinosaur bone to measure ourselves against.
World Book Day 2019
Year 3 had a fantastic time dressing up for World Book Day. We took part in a number of activities throughout the day including shared reading with Y5 and reading our favourite books. We even had a Horrid Henry story read to us by Mrs Bolam in the library!
World Book Day
Year 3 had a fantastic day dressed as their favourite book characters and reading their favourite books. We had quizzes, wrote book reviews and shared our stories with our friends, trying to persuade them to read our book. Our favourite activity was a game where we had a book character’s name on a post it note and everyone had to try to guess who we were by asking yes/no questions. It was a lot of fun!
Year 3 Puzzle Afternoon
Year 3 enjoyed puzzle day, especially when our parents came in. We love working as a team in year 3.
Roald Dahl 100 Day
Our favourite part of Roald Dahl day was helping Penny to design the story chair. We thought of the stories we knew and how we could represent them on the chair. We had lots of chocolatey ideas when we thought about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the tail of Mr Fox was sticking out from behind the chair on many designs. We can’t wait to see the finished chair!
