This term in PE we are learning how to play rounders. Last week we practised under arm and over arm throws, this week we’ve been practising bowling and batting the ball.


Catch up on the week

Miss Edwards has finally figured out how to upload photos to the blog again after a bit of a malfunction so here’s a catch up on the week…

Ahmed made a bird house with Mr Allsopp in forest schools on Monday. They made it completely out of recycled materials, including an inner tube of a bicycle tyre for a hinge!

Y3AE have begun a brand new chapter book in guided reading. It’s called The Imaginary and was written by A F Harold who visited us last year! We’re loving it so far – it’s a bit spooky in parts!

In Literacy we’ve continued looking at the story of Egyptian Cinderella. She’s called Rhodopis and we’ve been creating freeze frames of the story to help us better understand it (see above). We’ll be rewriting the story in detail with speech added in next week!

Straight back to it!

We’re straight back to learning after a lovely week off!

In writing, we’ve been learning the story of Egyptian Cinderella and making comparisons between that and our more traditional version.

In Maths, we are beginning to improve our measuring skills in length and perimeter. Today, we’ve revised how to properly use a ruler and read centimetres and millimetres, and then we’ve been busy measuring things around the classroom!

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!
