Summer ideas!

Last week!


Dear all,


To mark our last week in Year Three we would like to have a 'Pyjama Party' each day. The children can come to school in their pyjamas, if they so wish. Please remember they will still need trainers to play outside. 

For lunch they can bring in their own plate of party food/ packed lunch.

We will be having a special film on for which they can bring in a small bag of sweets or popcorn.

This weeks theme- Being resilient. Here are our resilient superheroes!

Our theme this week has been resilience/being brave.

We have looked at the story of Robert the Bruce and the determined spider.

Theme for the Week - Happiness

We have written our own little books of happiness. We have thought about what makes us happy and how we can help ourselves, as well as others , be happy.

A story about coming back to school!

I am looking forward to seeing you back from Monday 29th June

Thank you for making this. A very important message and it is lovely to see all your faces.

Please can all the children bring their kits to school on a Monday and then take them home on a Friday for washing. Each child has been given a locker to store their bags in. Please can long hair be tied back and no jewellery worn on a PE day, thank you.

We have been exploring local Welsh legends and learning how to play Gwyddbwyll. Lots of strategy needed!

Ein Eisteddfod

Amser Eisteddfod!

Dydd Iau Mawrth 5


The Key Stage 2 Eisteddfod will be on Thursday 5th March at Bryn Cadno Community Centre. On the day your child can come to the Centre dressed in anything that represents Wales eg. rugby kit, traditional Welsh costume or homemade outfit of anything to do with Wales.

All pupils have homework

1. What Wales means to me- a representation in any way the children would like eg sculture, photo, cake, short film.

2. Learn 'Y Tywydd' Poem

3. Learn 'Y Cwcw'


Also, if they wish, they have the opportunity to compete in the following

1. Solo recitation poem

2. Group/ solo dance

3. Instrumental (with a welsh theme)

Poem for the Eisteddfod

Our project this term is 'The Celts'. The project has a history focus and teacher the children about the Iron Age. At the heart of this topic the children read, retell and write Celtic myths and legends and create their own in the style of Celtic storytellers.

Rocket Balloon Investigation. How far can our rockets travel?

Practical Maths


Spellings - these will be given out once a week and tested on Mondays.

Reading - this is to be recorded in the children's planners. We hope that each child will read daily.

Maths - Times tables quizzes will be on Fridays. Please start with the 2, 5 and 10s.  Abacus homework (online) is set once every two weeks. The passwords have been put into the Planners.



Pop-ins will be on a Thursday 3.15-3.45. They will be on a fortnightly basis and start on the week commencing 27th January.

What a wonderful letter! Well done Year 3, we are very proud of you.

Our chosen charity

This year we have chosen Colwyn Bay Food Bank as our charity. At Christmas we will be undertaking a 'Reverse Advent' in class. This means rather than the children opening a door each day we will put in a donation to our food box daily. We will then be taking the collection down to the food bank in the week before Christmas.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Reverse Advent this month.

Can we help Owain Glyndwr knock down Conwy Castle?

In Science we have built, tested and adapted a catapult to try to hit a target. We used lolly pop sticks and elastic bands. The children had to try to adapt their catapults to throw an object further and more accurately. 

Practical Maths! Solving matchstick puzzles

Guess my number! We used lots of Maths language (more than, less than, odd, even, multiples......) How many 2D shapes can you make with 8 lolly sticks?

Christmas telegrams. Can you work out the cost of sending Christmas messages in English and in Welsh?
