An update!

Published on Thursday 17 January 2019 by Mrs Ferguson.

Parents' Information meeting is 4pm Tuesday 22nd January. We look forward to seeing you there!

Just a reminder to please leave a comment in the back of the green reading logs so we know your child has read at home and they are ready to quiz at school.

We would massively appreciate any help any families can give with reading in school. We would love a volunteer to come in each week to read one to one with different children. If you think you would be able to help us with this, please let us know. We would be

so grateful. Thank you!

Our swimming lessons are on Tuesday and all children need a swimming cap, towel and costume/trunks. Swimming caps can be bought there for £2. Please can earrings be removed on these days as children can not take part with earrings in.

A fantastic return for the New Year!

Published on Thursday 10 January 2019 by Miss Adlington.

To kick off our new year, Year 3 began their first ever swimming lessons this week. Everyone did fantastic and showed a lot of courage and fantastic listening skills with the instructors. Keep it up, Year 3!

Another exciting part of our week was going to Newcastle Theatre Royal to see 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. It was wonderful to see all the children so happy and excited, whilst also setting such a good example to one another. Their behaviour was fantastic and smiles were had all round! What a lovely start to a new term.

We started our new topic this week by looking at atlases. We made predictions about what atlases are used for and what our new topic could be if we were to use one as part of it. We explored the atlases and it's features, whilst picking out keywords. It was then revealed what our new topic is: The United Kingdom!

A fantastic return for the New Year!

Just a reminder for swimming and P.E days - swimming kit (towel, swimming cap and costume/trunks) is to be in school for every Tuesday. P.E kit is to be school every Thursday. Thank you.

Trip to the Church

The children were very well behaved and were very respectful during our church visit in Crook this afternoon. We sang carols together and learnt all about the Christian celebration of Christingle. What fun we had!

This Week in Year 3

Published on Thursday 29 November 2018 by Miss Adlington.

Great news! This week we received a letter from The Rainbow Quest author, Colin Gibbins. Inside was a certificate for Emily Bowden. She entered her 'winged horse' character artwork into a competition to have it published in Colin's next book and she won! Well done to our year group illustrator, Emily!

This Week in Year 3

This week we have had a ICT themed week. We spent our afternoons in the ICT suite and focused on our presentation skills. Everybody made a PowerPoint presentation about Ancient Egypt, to end our topic. We edited the design, font, headings, text and inserted images. Next week we will present our presentations to the class!

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.

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.
