Year 3 Bristol Museum Visit Term 6:  Year 3 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Bristol Museum. They looked around the Egyptian exhibition and found out lots of information about what life was like for people in Egyptian times. They also got to handle lots of Egyptian artefacts and had to work out what objects were and also how they were used in Egyptian times. The children are now looking forward to using all of this knowledge to help them put together their Egyptian exhibition at the end of this term. 


World Book Day 1st March 2018: pupils and staff came to school dressed in their fantastic World Book Day costumes.  The children were able to take part in a variety of Dr Seuss based activities within school. Thank you to all our parents and carers for your support with the wonderful costumes.


Book Launch at Waterstones Saturday 24th February: Year 3 have been publishing their own books based on their theme from last term - the Iron Age. On Saturday they had their own stand at Waterstones to launch their book.  Parents, carers and pupils were invited to come along to the b book launch.  Well done Year 3 children and staff for all your hard work, they look fabulous!        

Raise The Roof Term 2: Year 3 and 4 were joined by children from Mendip Green and Kewstoke Primary Schools to sing songs from around the world. They were led by Mrs Anne Clough, from North Somerset Music Service, for a fantastic afternoon of singing together. Songs included Wonderful World and The Mexican Counting song. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and all sang brilliantly.


Year 3 Stone Age and Iron Age WOW Days: At the end of Term 1 Year 3 had a great WOW Day to end their Stone Age topic. The children designed and created cave paintings, made jewellery and made their own hand prints like the Stone Age people would have done. They watched Miss Daniels gut fish and experienced how it would have been cooked over an open fire!

At the start of Term 2, the Year 3 children all enjoyed their Iron Age WOW day. Children were treated to a very special visitor from the Iron Age, where they took part in a variety of activities such as creating Iron Age shields and spears and completing warrior training.

Celebration of Learning Event - Tuesday 11th July 2017

Year 3 classes also shared their work and projects with parents and carers


Year 3 Ancient Egypt Topic: The Year 3 children completed their Ancient Egypt Topic by holding an Ancient Egyptian Invention Exhibition in the School Hall. They created models, writing, hieroglyphics, persuasive videos and artwork as a culmination of a term of work on the civilization of Ancient Egypt.


At the beginning of Term 4, visitors from across the St Martin's School Community were invited in to listen to children at the exhibition and browse the stalls before voting for their favourite stand, the winners of the stand receiving an exciting prize. Thank you to our parents/carers for such a good turn out.


Year 3 Waterstones Book Stand: Year 3 have been working extremely hard over terms one and two to produce a picture book as a sequel to Satoshi Kitamura’s Stone Age Boy. Iron Age Child is a culmination of a series of mini projects that have lead to the final product of a picture book. The children have learnt how to write non–chronological reports on Iron age housing, Iron age lifestyle and weapons. Also children learnt how to write effective discussion texts. Another mini project was writing a voyage and return story in keeping with the ‘Stone age Boy’. They also sketched animal pictures, peer critiqued their work and then re-drafted them until the children were proud of their final attempts. All children in Year 3 contributed in some way to their class’ book.


To celebrate the success of this project, Waterstones Booksellers (Sovereign Centre, Weston-super-Mare) kindly agreed to let our children promote their books to the general public for the day. All children and Y3 staff that attended thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

Year 3 WOW Day:

Year 3 children spent two wonderful WOW days at the end of Term , to celebrate the end of their Stone Age Topic and to introduce the beginning of their Iron Age Topic. On the Stone Age WOW day children watched fish being prepared and cooked 'Stone Age' style, they made Stone Age bracelets and created Stone Age cave paintings. On the Iron Age WOW day children were treated to a very special visitor from the Iron Age, where they took part in a variety of activities such as creating Iron Age shields and spears and completing warrior training.
