Summer Term 1


I hope you all had a great Easter! The children have settled back into school very well and we have already done lots of fun activities! Our new topic is called Gods and Mortals, where we will be learning all about Ancient Greece! For our launch day, we tried a variety of Greek foods, wrote our names in Greek and did some traditional Greek dancing. It was a great day! 


Remember that homework books are still to be handed in on a Wednesday, guided reading takes place on a Wednesday, spelling test is on a Friday and PE kits need to be in school on Fridays. 


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me in school.

Excellent topic homework! Well done!

We had fun making and exploding a volcano for our innovate!

Fantastic nativities!

Autumn Term 2


I hope you all had a great 2 weeks off! This term our topic is called Tremors and we will be learning all about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. For our launch day, we had a surprise when we entered the classroom and saw caution tape everywhere! There had been an eruption of a volcano underneath the school playground and lava had gone everywhere. The children had to work in groups and became news reporters and witnesses. They wrote a script for a news broadcast and then we filmed it on the iPad. It was a great day! 

PE will still be taking place on a Friday. Please ensure that your child has an indoor and outdoor kit. Please also label all uniform and PE kits with your child's name as it makes it easier to find these items when they go missing!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in contact with me.

Beginning the Season of Creation with Sister Susan

Autumn Term 1


Welcome to Year 3 and to Key Stage 2. It has been great to see each child settle into Year 3 with ease, especially after so much time away! We have already completed so many fun and interesting things to begin our year but there's much more excitement ahead. 


Our first topic is called Tribal Tales and we will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. For our launch day, we made stewed fruit, created a Stonehenge pastel picture and built Stonehenge using bricks and cubes! It was an excellent day! 

PE is on a Friday so please ensure PE kits are in school on this day. Please also ensure that PE kits and uniform are labelled with your child's name. Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected on a Wednesday. 


Please feel free to contact me at school if you have any further queries. Please check this page regularly for further updates and photographs.
