Breathing love into learning


Year 3

Welcome to Dahl CLASS


In Year 3, the children transition from key stage 1 to key stage 2. The topics are designed to ensure that the children are engaged and interested, whilst allowing them to explore and investigate. Learners' will be challenged to build upon their key stage one skills in order to prepare them for the rigorous teaching and learning throughout the second stage of primary school. Expectations are very high, in order for each child to achieve their best across every aspect of the curriculum. The children will be challenged in order to extend their knowledge and understanding, allowing the basic skills to be embedded and become the foundations for key stage two. 

Rainforest Poetry

Using the animal that they were learning about in Science, the children created poems to describe what the animal was like. The children learnt about similes and metaphors and were challenged to include these in their writing. Including exciting and unusual vocabulary was also a key success criteria for the poems. They then presented them in a style of their choice - which resulted in some very interesting final pieces. 

Rousseau Art

The children spent some time learning about Henri Rousseau and exploring his art work. They then practiced using oil pastels, mixing them to create a variety of tones and using them in different ways to create a variety of textures. Using photographs from the tropical house at Marwell Zoo for inspiration, the children then created their own final pieces. 

Science - Rainforest Animals

After our trip to Marwell Zoo the children chose a rainforest animal to study and from this they created an A3 presentation. The presentations were linked to science as the children investigated the animals habitats and diets. The children were given the choice of how they would like to present their information.

Make a Change!


In year 3 we have been looking at different issues that affect the world and ways that we can change things that we do, to keep our planet safe. As a whole class we researched plastic and the ways in which it is damaging the Earth. We collected single-use plastic from all of the children's lunch boxes, separated the collection into different types of plastic and then made bar graphs to show our data. We have decided that if we want the plastic problem to change we must all make a change. We hope you enjoyed reading our letter!


The children all worked on a presentation 'The Problem with Plastics', click here to view.


In art we created some beautiful Mother's day cards by using celery to print some flowers. They came out really well and our mum's loved them!


The children used Scratch to create their own computer games.  Click on the links below  to play the fantastic games that the children have Edward created.

Logan & Leighton's Race Game

Louie's Race Game

Macie's Race Game



The children built pyramids, creating a wooden frame, with a focus on the joints that they were making. They used cardboard sides and decorated with colouring pens. 


Dream Jars - in English year 3 were studying Roald Dahl. After reading extracts from  the BFG, the children decided that they would like to write their own dreams. Here are a selection of our Phizzwizards and Trogglehumpers. 



The children participated in an e-safety workshop, teaching them how to be safe online. They then created their own anti-bullying posters, which have been displayed in the classroom. 


What can we learn from the The Bible?
Year 3 have been exploring the Easter Story through different viewpoints!


Soil and Fossil day - Year 3 had a wonderful day investigating soil and making their very own fossils. They made fossils from clay and plaster, bread and jelly sweets and tracking fossils in clay.
