Hello and welcome to our class blog! We are the Swifts class.

Miss Moscatiello is our teacher and Mrs McHugh is our teaching assistant.  

Our class love to read in our “Reading Garden” with a book buddy and enjoy listening to stories at the end of the day!


We are looking forward to our year 3 adventure exploring many amazing topics…

Our termly topics are:

Term 1 – Predators

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side! Find out who’s coming to visit... is it a bug-munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it?


Term 2- Rocks, Relics and Rumbles 

Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.  Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. 


Term 3 – Mighty Metals

You’re an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course!).  Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials... Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move. If you were a metal, which one would you be? Maybe you’re not a metal at all – but a force to be reckoned with! 


Term 4 – Gods and Mortals

From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light. Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.  


Term 5- Tribal Tales

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen? What tribal tales will you have to tell? Experience life without modern tools and luxurious home comforts – would you survive? In our topic we will discover how people evolved from hunter gatherers to farmers and the beliefs these pre-historic warriors held. We will grow plants and crops which will be harvested to enable us to understand the physical processes and difficulties faced.


Term 6- Our Wonderful World

Grab your passport and pack your suitcase!  You are invited on an adventure around our amazing world.  In our topic we will be exploring the globe, we will be visiting friends in places like Europe and South America.

Science Morning!

Today, we took part in a fun experiment testing a range of materials to see if they could change shape in different ways. 

In addition, we took part in an experiment to test the permeability of materials.  We tested the following materials - paper towel, plastic and piece of cotton material. 


Fantastic Fossils!

The children were very excited today because we found a time capsule!  The children were able to look at some real fossils and found out about the palaeontologist Mary Anning. We read a diary entry and talked about what creatures the fossils may have come from.  The children can't wait to find out more about fossils!

Digital Art!

This term, we are looking at digital art, which is so cool! We can't believe some of the art work has actually been created on an iPad! Today, we looked at digital art apps and explored how to use the different tools.


Brilliant Bones!

Today, we identified bones found in the human body and discussed their functions. We discovered our bones do three very important jobs. Firstly, our skeleton helps us to move around. It also supports our body and it protects our organs! We had lots of fun as we took our learning outside to draw around our bodies. After, we added in the bones and labelled them identifying which ones protect our vital organs.

Help Save Endangered Snow Leopards!

This week in English and as part of our ‘Innovate Week’, we have been researching all about the endangered snow leopard. We are extremely shocked to discover that only 4,000 remain in our world! This beautiful animal is an incredible predator but as we have found out is in danger of becoming extinct. After lots of research, we have found out that humans are a main threat as many are killed by poachers! We also know their habitat is at risk meaning there is a loss of living space for them. After all of our research, we created booklets to educate others about the threat of extinction! Well done Swifts!
