Year 3

Welcome to our Year 3 page where you will find pictures and examples of work celebrating achievements within the year group. 

'I can't believe that I am running with an Olympic athlete'...

MJS were extremely lucky to have Liz Yelling, a double Olympian and Commonwealth marathon runner, lead an inspirational assembly in the build up to this years sports day. A select group of year 3 children were then fortunate enough to have a training session with Liz where she put our athletes through their paces. Despite being a very warm day it was still 12 degrees cooler than Liz's first Olympic marathon in Athens (40 degrees)!

               

                     

 

 A letter from David Walliams...

After writing to a host of inspirational people as part of a short topic we were delighted to see that Brooke had received a letter from David Walliams. He gave her some top tips about becoming an author and encouraged her to continue her love for reading!

 

Inter year group 'Hoopball' tournament

Year 3 started off the Spring 2 half term with a 'Hoopball' tournament where we represented our house teams against each other and put into practice the skills gained during our games lessons last half term. 

         

 

The Tutankhamun and Mummy exhibition, Dorchester

As part of our 'Ancient Egypt' topic we went to the Tutankhamun and Mummy exhibition in Dorchester. We had a great time learning about Howard Carter's expedition to find Tutankhamun's forgotten tomb and had the chance to examine some Mummies!

September 2016

All of the 'Milford Family' would like to extend a warm welcome to our new year 3 children who have joined us from various schools in Yeovil and the surrounding areas. You will find out some of what we do on our year 3 curriculum page. Enjoy your first half term at Milford Junior School.

The Somerset Earth Science Centre

Year 3 have just been on a very exciting trip to the 'Somerset Earth Science Centre' which was part of our recent science topic: rocks and plants. The day consisted of rock testing, a woodland walk around the centre's lake  and a trip into a working quarry! The children were amazed by the machinery and the volume of basalt produced to make new roads in the South West! 

  

 

Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

We celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday this afternoon by designing and producing our own commemorative plate! 

                                        

 

Rainforest homework projects: A big well done and thank you to all of the children who produced a rainforest themed piece of homework. Some of the projects that we received included: fact files, presentations, models and paintings!

   

   

 

Year 3 DT: Sandwich making!

We started this project by taste testing different sandwich fillings and bread, before designing a healthy sandwich! We then designed boxes that were used to contain our 'sarnies'! This photo shows our wonderful creations!
