Popham Class- Year 3

Welcome back to a very busy and fun Summer term.


We began our first day back to school with a Discovery Day.  In our box were a selection of shells from Melanesia, which is where our link school is in the Solomon Islands. We learnt a lot about these shells (some of them were enormous!), how they were once used as a form of money and how some are still used today as a Font to hold the water that is used to bless the children. Smaller shells are used to make bracelets and necklaces and Popham class had a go at making their own items. Have a look at our gallery to see exactly what we have been up to.


Our topic for the summer term is The Shang Dynasty. We will be looking at atlases to find out where it was and also some of the surrounding areas. We will find out when it took place and why it was so important that we still learn about it in school today.There is a copy of the planning overview for this half-term in the folder. Please take a look and help your child by talking about what they have learnt in school.


Popham class are swimming again this half term. These sessions take place on Friday mornings and PE is, as usual, on Tuesday afternoon. Please can you make sure that their kits are in school for these days.




Popham Class have had a such a busy half term. Please look at all of our photographs to see exactly what we have been doing.


Red Nose Day was particularly busy as well as fun. The children were dressed in an assortment of red clothing ranging from ties and hair ribbons to pyjamas.
