Water Leys

Primary School

Year 3

Friday 14th May

Class 7 have  really enjoyed playing with Sheldon's model Colosseum this week! Top effort Sheldon!


Class 7 have really enjoyed learning about Keith Haring!

Keith Haring was a famous artist whose artwork had a cartoon style with lots of bright colours and bold, black outlines.

We did a pose in the style of Keith Haring's famous dancing figures and created our own piece of artwork. We used bold and bright colours, as well as motion lines, to mimic his style.




This is the handwriting that we teach at Water Leys. 



Every morning we practise our handwriting. At Water Leys we learn Cursive handwriting, in which every lower case letter starts on the line with a 'slide up'.  Should you wish to practise handwriting at home with your child here is a picture of what Cursive looks like.

In Maths, we are working on our 3, 4, and 8 times tables. These are the times tables that children are expected to know with instant recall by the end of Year 3. 


After lunch every day we have been having fun doing a whole class Speed Test to practise these times tables. If you want to have a go with your grown up at home, click here and it will take you to the website! 

In Science, we have been learning all about vertebrates and invertebrates, and comparing their skeletons.  Watch this video to help refresh your memory!  

In year 3 we are really enjoying learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We know the children are looking forward to the Mummification part!

We are enjoying creating our own 'Pop Up' art, inspired by Keith Haring.
