Welcome letter

World Book Day 2020

We have started a new science topic investigating forces. Here are the children using drama to investigate pushes and pulls in their everyday activities. Can you tell what activities they are doing?

Wow! You’ve done it again! More fabulous project homework! Thank you to everyone who helped and a big WELL DONE to the children for creating such interesting and enticing cereals. Here are some photos of some of the children presenting their cereal boxes. The brief was to make a cereal box with a catchy name and appealing character, with a list of ingredients and nutritional information included on the box. Quite a task, but they all did it. Fantastic!

We have be investigating which rocks are permeable. It was great using this lovely word and using the scientific equipment.

For our 'Enterprise Event' this December, Y3 made beautiful baubles to sell on their stall. Thank you all who supported us!

We are so grateful to Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy for performing to us at our 'Journey to the Stable' morning. Year 3 and 4 loved it and enjoyed advent activities in the afternoon.

Well done to Year 3 who amazed us with their talents on Tuesday! A thoughtful reflection on what makes us special. A massive thank you to everyone who helped the children prepare their lines, practise their skills and send in photos or videos.

Last week Year 3 became ‘Howard Carter’ and investigated Tutankhamun’s tomb- and what amazing treasures they found!

We have been creating patterns using motifs inspired by nature – much like famous designers William Morris and Orla Kiely. We used styrofoam and paint to create our patterns. It was very messy and a lot of fun!

Wow! The Egyptian Board Games the children made as part of their homework are amazing! Here are some photographs of the children playing their games in class. A big thank you to parents and relatives who helped the children create and test their wonderful games.

Enjoy your week off and see you on November 4th!

Year 3 visited the Atkinson Museum as part of their history topic on Ancient Egypt.

We enjoyed our visit from ‘The History Man.' We had the chance to handle artefacts and take part in several activities.

We have continued to investigate reflection. Here we are doing our Daily Mile using mirrors!

In Science, we've been investigating light - we all know how mirrors work now!

Enjoying the sunshine (but we had to move as it was getting in our eyes!)

Y3 Curriculum Overview

Here we are tucking into the sandwiches the children designed and made in DT. What a tasty lesson!

Year 3 have been designing and making ‘stone-age’ necklaces. Initial designs were made in play-doh and then air drying clay was used to recreate ‘bones’ , ‘teeth’ etc to make in to their necklaces.

Why do plants have flowers? Year 3 can answer this now they have dissected flowers and learnt about the different jobs each part of the flower does. 🌺 🐝

Year 3 have become nutritionist, discovering what food groups they should eat to stay healthy. Here's some shots of them examining sandwiches and then creating healthy lunch box options covering all the food groups in the Healthy Plate Chart. 🍽

After taking part in last week’s stone-age dig at ‘Bring Yer Wellies’, some children have been busy at home making ‘stone-age’ tools and weapons

Year 3 trip to Bring Yer Wellies. We learnt how to be archaeologists on our ‘stone age dig’.

We loved shared reading with Year 2 today!

We’ve had an expert in to talk to us about bones. Dr Craghill came in and we labelled a skeleton, touched a real bone and learnt so much about the functions of bones. What a brilliant afternoon, thank you Dr Craghill!

Well Done Y3! Your worship today was wonderful. The message of forgiveness came across through your songs, acting and prayers, we loved it. Thank you for entertaining us with such a powerful message. (Pictures soon to follow)

Fraction Fun in Y3!

World Book Day 2019! Where's Wally?

World Book Day 2019 - We loved reading to Reception Class

Our Chinese Dragons

Here are Year 3 children making origami foxes this week and also learning how to read an OS map.

Here are some photos of Year 3 investigating magnetic force.


Being creative for our enterprise event.

Year 3 enjoyed a fabulous hands on workshop with ‘The History Man’. They did lots of activities linked with their topic on Ancient Egypt and everyone is looking forward to painting their scarabs.

We used red and yellow paints to create a sunset effect. This is going to form the background to a special piece of art work which is a joint project with year 5. We can’t wait to show you the finished work after half term.

We finished our wrapping paper repeating patterns and we’re pleased with our results.

We are pleased with our different repeating pattern work so far this term..

This week we are preparing a painted background ready to design our own wrapping paper.

Year 3 were busy designing their own repeating patterns using pastels.  We think the finished results look stunning.

Year 3 enjoyed their sessions today with the Football Development coaches.

Year 3 Class Trip!

Year 3 are looking at different kinds of patterns as part of their art lessons this half term. They enjoyed looking at interesting designs and then they looked closer at some Islamic designs which they tried to copy. It was tricky but they used a view finder to help them concentrate on one small area. Well done everyone!

We had a wonderful time making our sandwiches and then eating them at the park.
Year 3 and 4 spent the day at church ahead of the services in Holy Week. They reflected on the meaning and significance of Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday by creating different crosses suitable for each day.
