Class Three

Welcome everybody to Class 3's homepage! Mrs Barrick, Mrs Clayden and Mrs Baines make up the Class 3 team. We are very much looking forward to having an enjoyable year and working hard with the children in years 3 and 4.

This term we will be exploring volcanoes in our topic 'We Will Rock You!' Children will enjoy exploring how and why volcanoes are formed and will be using their geographical skills and knowledge to locate some of the most famous ones around the world. We will also meet Ug , the stone age boy genius, who longs for a pair of trousers. However, his parents are too busy trying to survive the trials and tribulations of the stone age era to help him. I'm sure Class 3 will be able to give him a helping hand through out textiles work this term!

In keeping with our 'We Will Rock You' theme, we will be exploring rocks and soils and learning all about how fossils are made. Children will have the opportunity to handle different rocks and investigate their properities.

We will also be welcoming special visitors in PE this term, including Hull City Ladies football coaches. In RE we will be learning about the lives of different faith founders in the lead up to Easter. Year 4 will also have their first residential visit to Cranedale, and on top of all this, we will be putting on a superb Easter production at the end of the term! We are looking forward to a very busy term indeed!


Royal Armouries

Wow! What an amazing way to kick start our Roman topic! We were transformed into Iceni warriors to re-live the drama of Boudicca's rebellion via an immersive, hands on storytelling session led by a member of the famous tribe. We were also put through our paces by Titus the Centurion to see if we had the strength, power and pride to make it in the Roman Army! We managed to survive it all! Well done Class 3!

Team Work!

Class 3 successfully worked together in groups to create some Roman shields. They learned about the symbolic patterns used to decorate the shields and how the shield was used in battle to protect the soldiers. We were very pleased with the outcome and they have made a fantastic display in our classroom!


We also designed and created catapults as part of our DT project! The children loved this and created some fantastic work!

Meeting a real author!

Professor David Waugh visited KS2 to talk about being an author. We read his books and participated in comprehsension and role play activities. We had lots of fun and asked so many questions! We hope he will come back soon to finish the story we started!

The Reluctant Dragon

We loved Image Theatre's production of The Reluctant Dragon! We created some amazing artwork using watercolours and enjoyed creating and writing about our own dragons in Literacy.

Fun with our visitors in PE

We are enjoying working with different visitors in PE this term. So far, we have developed our football skills with Hull City Ladies football coaches. We are also currently developing many skills in our games sessions with the Sportsability team.
