Year 3 have been on an educational visit to St Fagans this week! We walked around the St Fagans' site, saw lots of different animals and learnt about how Celtic people lived. We even helped make the wall of a round house....which was a bit messy and muddy! We also learnt how to throw javelins and spears, just like real Celtic warriors!

In class we have been writing Welsh conversations! We looked at all the vocabulary and questions we have learnt this term and made our own welsh conversations with our friends. We then shared them in front of the rest of the class!

Sharing our Welsh conversations with our friends....


We have also been working hard on our maths and learning how to problem solve.We  solved maths problems relating to our Roman and Celt topic and used multiplication, addition and subtraction to do so! Some groups even made up their own Roman and Celt maths problems. Here are a few examples……..


Princess Julia has 80 gold coins. She buys a ring that costs 56 gold coins. How many gold coins does she have left?


 Julius Caesar has 120 gold coins. If he spends 30 gold coins at the market how   many does he have left?

Hard at work solving maths problems....

Week beginning 17th November 2014


This week Class 3R has been speaking lots of Welsh. We have acted out different sports in Welsh, sung Welsh songs, answered Welsh questions and even played Welsh Chinese whispers! Our helpwr heddiws have helped us to carry out these daily activities.



As it is anti bullying week in school, we have been practising hard for our anti bullying assembly. We made freezeframes by acting out different emotions linked to bullying, made a class charter to show how we can band together and prevent bullying and we even wrote our own acrostic poem! Open the powerpoint below to have a look!


We have also been learning about a new religion called Hinduism.  Some of the children in class brought in items from home and told us about Hindu Gods. We are really enjoying learning about this topic and it is lovely that we can teach each other about our different religions!

10thNovember 2014

This week Year 3 have been busy as always in class. We have learnt all about Judaism and learnt lots of new words such as synagogue, tallit, kippah and rabbi. The spellings of some of the Jewish words were a bit tricky but we tried very hard to remember them all. 

We have also been working very hard to improve and practise our spellings. We used Look, Cover, Write, Check to help us. First we looked at the word. Then we covered it up and spelt it out loud to our partners. Next we wrote the word. Finally we checked we had spelt it correctly! This really helped us to learn some tricky, new words!
