Remembrance Day

Published on Thursday 15 November 2018 by Miss Adlington.

This week our English focus has been all about Remembrance Day. We have looked at Remembrance Day texts, analysed the features and found out new key information by researching on the chromebooks. We planned our very own non-chronological report and noted down information about the two minute silence, The Royal British Legion and why and when we have Remembrance Day. We also made beautiful poppies, using card and tissue paper.

Remembrance Day

Just a reminder that next Tuesday (20th November) we have our Year 3 reading breakfast morning (9-10am). You are welcome to join your child in class to read their favourite books and take a look at the book they chose from our visit to Crook Library. We hope to see you there!


Also, just a reminder to please ensure children have a full P.E kit in school every week (including outdoor shoes) and reading books are in school everyday. Thank you.

Library Visit

Published on Monday 29 October 2018 by Miss Adlington.

On Monday year 3 took a trip back to Crook Library. We all returned our books and chose new ones. Everyone was very polite and respectful and set a wonderful example to one another. Everyone was super excited to chose new books and we had a lovely afternoon reading them back at school. Some children wrote blogs on Reading Cloud about our trip.

Judo, a dragon intruder and Canopic Jars

Published on Thursday 18 October 2018 by Miss Adlington.

This week was a very exciting week as we were lucky enough to be able to have a judo taster session. We were shown and practised different judo techniques and skills.


We had a very interesting start to our week. We walked into the dining hall on Monday and it looked like we had a visitor! We found dragon eggs, scales, teeth, wings and horns. It turns out that Outlandish the Dragon had escaped from Cherry Bloom and crashed into our school. Outlandish left his diary entry, talking about his BIG ESCAPE and we pretended to be him and wrote his next diary entry.

Following our wonderful parent afternoon from last week, we also got chance to paint our Canopic Jars this week. There was some lovely, colourful designs.

Thank you so much to all the families that came to our parent afternoon. The children loved getting messy with the clay and creating their own Canopic Jar design.

Author Visit

Published on Friday 5 October 2018 by Miss Adlington.

This week, Colin Gibbins, the author of 'The Rainbow Quest', came into school to talk about fantasy stories, settings, characters and endings. We worked in small groups to make predictions about the story and used our imagination to think of our own fantasy plots. Some of us had the chance to buy a signed, first edition copy of 'The Rainbow Quest'. Thank you to Colin for coming into school and sharing his book with us.

This Week in Year 3

Published on Thursday 27 September 2018 by Miss Adlington.

To start our busy week in year 3, we made our very own mythical creatures, as part of our English fantasy topic. We had some very imaginative ideas and some amazing adjectives to describe our sidekicks/villains. This is going to prepare us for creating our own fantasy setting, where our creatures will live.

This Week in Year 3

In PE we have been adding to our volcanic dance sequence, with some children showing amazing volcanic eruption dance moves. We have showed super team work and evaluated each others performances.

In topic we have moved onto looking at pictures of Ancient Egypt and comparing life then to our modern lives now. Thank you to all families who have sent in some wonderful topic research and artefacts - we have had some great discussions about them.

Canopic Jars

We would like to invite you in to school on Tuesday 9th October to work with the children in creating a Canopic jar that they have designed.

This will be from 1.30 and children may leave once the project is completed.

Canopic Jars

Canopic jars were used in Ancient Egyptian mummification ceremonies to preserve the internal organs.
