What are we getting up to in Y3?

Welcome to Year 3!

We could not be more impressed with our amazing Year 3 children and how they have settled so well into life at FCJA. We are looking forward to many exciting learning opportunities and having lots of fun along the way. If you have any questions, please come and see us at our classroom doors between 8:45 and 8:55am. Failing that, leave a message at reception and we'll get back to you.

Best wishes,

The Y3 Teaching Team

Autumn Term: Simply Italian


Year 3 are very excited to be opening our very own Italian Restaruant later in the term. We will be making our own menu, cooking our own delicious Italian food and decorating the restaruant, especially for our parents/families. To prepare for this we will be learning about Italy, food and cooking skills. After visiting Pizza Express, we know the hard work we have ahead.



Spring Term: Wacky Races!

...and now here they are!!!!

The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in the Wacky Races competing for the title of world’s wackiest racer.

The cars are approaching the starting line

First, Year 3’s project is off to a roaring start. Racing ahead to an early lead to create their own racers to overcome a number of dastardly challenges.

Summer Term: Glorious Glevum

Man the time machine Year 3. We are off! This term we are excited to be learning about Roman Gloucester. The children were welcomed back after their Easter holiday, with a Roman craft workshop making an authentic Roman coin and their very own mosaic key ring to take home! From learning how to read Roman numerals; building their own Roman villa; weaving their own landscape and uncovering the mysteries of Roman technologies - it is going to be an extremely creative term. The children have planned their history focused project to be the creation of a model Roman Glevum. The completion of the project will be taking the parents on an informative tour of their creation so that they can gain a deeper understanding of what life was like in the local area hundreds of years ago.
