Spring Term

Quiz, Quiz, Trade!

To consolidate our learning from our Escape to Pompeii work we took part  in 'Quiz, Quiz, Trade', where we asked  and answered some super questions.

National Day of Reflection

To mark the National Day of Reflection, we each made a daffodil. As part of our whole school 'Rainbow of Reflection' we thought about how we can give thanks for what we had learned during the pandemic.

Dodgeball

In dodgeball we have enjoyed playing fun games that help us improve our skills while also having lots of fun. We have learnt lots of tactics that will help us dodge like jumping, and moving left or right and how teamwork really helps when you need it.

Outdoor Learning  Week 3

We looked fossils and how they are formed and linked this to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii.  We also made our very own fossils - how exciting!

Collective Worship

Thank you to our classmates who planned, discussed and organised a beautiful Collective Worship on Lent.

100 Challenge

The whole school took part in the '100 Challenge'. We raised £252.40 for the NHS, in memory of Sir Captain Tom Moore. 

Science Day

The whole school celebrated the annual British Science event, we were challenged to say a big thank you to the NHS by creating an innovation that linked to our Science learning (animals including humans). We looked at the role of a radiographer and a physiotherapist and they set us the task of designing a prosthetic hand. Please look at our photo to see our fabulous creations.

Performance Poetry

Please take a look at the performance poetry we have been doing in our English lessons as part of our Escape to Pompeii work.

Outdoor Learning 2

Question - Can we identify if rocks are sedimentary, metaphoric or igneous?

Answer - Of course we can!

Superstars

We have been practising our Superstar skills in our PE lessons.

Outdoor Learning Week 1

What a fabulous way to start our learning when we returned to school after lockdown. We started our Outdoor Learning sessions on Rocks and Soils by digging and investigating soil. We had a fabulous day and can't wait for our next session.

Autumn Term 

PE

To assist with working towards active 60 minutes each day, the Youth Sport Trust will be running a live broadcast on their Youtube channel of their after-school sports club. This will take place at 5pm on weekdays from 16th November until the 18th December, for children to take part in at home. Please see further details on the link below;

Gymnastics

We are learning and perfecting our jumps in PE. Can you name the different jumps we are doing?

Collective Worship

We gathered together to say our own special prayers for the deceased and took part in a two minutes silence. We each made an individual poppy and wrote the name of someone who has died on the back, which we place in the basket during our Collective Worship

Ukulele lessons

We have been learning how to play the ukulele. It is so much fun! It can be quite tricky at times and it takes a lot of concentration but it makes such a lovely sound (when we are all in tune with each other!). Hopefully, after some more practice, we will be able to play a recognisable tune!

Collective Worship

 Our focus for our Collective Worship was on the mysteries of the Rosary.

PE

We have been taking part in Street Dance in our PE lessons! We have really impressed our teachers with the  effort we put in and they were  amazed by the dancing talent we have in our class! 

RE

In RE we have been learning about Baptism. We have been learning about the important symbols and signs used in a Baptism and about the Rite of Baptism. We role played the Rite of Baptism.

English 

We have been undertaking lots of reading and writing activities based around the story Sand Wizards by Jon Blake, exploring themes of friendship and feelings in a story with a familiar setting. These photos show us acting out the scene when Cole & Evan first met.

Music 

We are enjoying our Music lessons with Mrs Pritchard.

Collective Worship

Our Year 3 have planned and led their own collective worship this week. The theme was New Beginnings. We discussed about how every lesson is really a ‘new beginning,’ a new chance to learn and an opportunity to grow our brains. For our Go Forth we said that we would remember the following sentence “ I am one of God’s greatest creations’.
