Summer Term

English – The Black Hat

In our English lessons, we have been watching a short film called The Black Hat, which is a story about a little boy who finds a magical hat in the forest one day. We decided to write our own stories based upon The Black Hat. Have a read of some below and let us know if you enjoy them!



Summer Term School Disco

Year 3 had a fantastic time at the summer term school disco in May. We all enjoyed ‘letting our hair down’ and having a good ‘boogie’!



Science – Light and Dark

In our science lessons, we have been investigating the topic, Light and Dark. So far, we have looked at different sources of light and we have also conducted an experiment to find out which materials are the most reflective. This week, we have discussed how to stay safe in the sun and we have produced posters using our computing skills to share what we have learnt.
