Dinnington Community Primary School


Year 3P


Welcome to Y3!!


Mrs Palmer would like to welcome you to Y3!


Our essential question for the summer term is...

Would you rather be Horrid Henry or Perfect Peter?'


To help us to investigate this question, we will be looking at a variety of Horrid Henry stories, visiting the local library for a treasure hunt and working towards our end of term drama performance. We have also managed to get a professional actor to visit us in class and are going to the Lyric theatre to experience being on a stage!!


At the end of the term we will be putting on a performance of a Horrid Henry story which everyone will be invited to attend...details to follow.

Planning for Spring 1

Here is what we have planned for this half term...



Welcome to the Year 3 Class page!


This term our focus is Famous Firsts. We will be taking a closer look into inventions throughout history as well as exploring the inventors behind such creations.


Our essential question is What is the best British invention?


We have already begun gathering research to help us support our answer and to help us start our project (creating our own inventions). Helping us with this was our fantastic WOW day where Mr B came in and ran an invention workshop for the day. The children (and teachers) found out some interesting and fascinating facts. Check them out below, alongside our photos from our brilliant day of inventions...
