Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Welcome to Year 3

We have worked hard all year round and here are some of our fantastic pictures of our work.


In History we have been learning all about Ancient Greece. The children have had lots of fun learning about Greek gods, famous philosophers and other information such as wars and battles, where the Olympics started and more.


We have been focusing on animals including humans and keeping healthy. The children in Year 3 have been PTs (Personal Trainers) they have worked as groups and researched how to keep their client healthy. We have also been looking at the human body, focusing on bones and muscles. 

D&T/ Art

 In Design and Technology we have had lots of fun making our clay tiles and Greek pots. The children have created some lovely designs and taken time to produce lovely pieces of art work which they are all very proud of.
