Top scores for Taeya

A massive well done to Taeya who has been working hard all year round to beat her score on the beat that test. She’s been so close to full marks for so long but today she made it! Not only did she get full marks on beat that, but also full marks on her CLIC test and spelling test! Practice pays off, well done Taeya!


Y6 visitors

Y3 have been lucky to be visited by Y6 today. Y6 came to share their learning all about fossils. We learnt lots about how fossils are formed and that they can even be formed from trees or poo!


A big well done to our finalists from Y3AE, they were all amazing and did themselves proud! Here’s a sneak peek of their performances. We think they are extremely brave to get up on stage in front of so many people! They are performing again in the final round this afternoon where the winners will be decided. Good luck all! 🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼


All the Year 3’s went on such a fantastic, jam packed visit to Eureka yesterday!

We had so much fun exploring all the different areas and spent a lot of time in the “All about me” room exploring everything about our bodies and how they develop!

We had so much fun that quite a few of us fell asleep on the way home!

Read all about it!

Here’s some pictures of our finished news reports!

For those of us who have finished, we have been set the challenge of writing a story with an Ancient Egyptian theme. Our stories must include speech (as we’ve been learning how to use inverted commas) and every one of this week’s spellings at least once. This is a great way to be creative with spelling practice at home too!

Developments in our news story

Yesterday we had a very interesting visitor in Y3 drop in from his time travelling machine! We were lucky enough to be visited by Howard Carter himself! So we took the opportunity to interview him about his incredible discovery. Carter reported back to teachers that he was very impressed by the level of questions he was asked by the Y3s, and he even showed us the full layout of Tutankhamun’s tomb. We’ll be including some of the interesting quotes we gathered in our reports.

Breaking news!

We are well on our way to producing our newspaper article in Y3. We’re currently writing paragraphs about how King Tut’s tomb was discovered.

We’re concentrating on writing full paragraphs and using lots of time adverbs and specific key words.

When Watercliffe visited Arbourthorne

Wow, what an amazing, fun filled day we had with our linking school, Arbourthorne.

We had a welcome assembly, a tour around the school and then some time outside! We then did some art activities around friendship and got together in the hall for a bit of Go Noodle!

We can’t wait to stay in touch with our new friends and show them our school next
