Easter Play 

Thank you for supporting Year 3's Easter Play. I'm sure you will agree they were all fantastic! Thank you to all the parents and carers who spent time going through words, parts and songs. I would also like to thank Year 3 for their superb acting and commitment to the performance throughout.  Also a big thank you to Mrs Edmonds, Mrs Philips, Mrs Mac and Mrs Tarleton for helping to make the play the success it was. 




This week we have focused on performance poetry. Year 3 were fantastic using different pace, tone and actions for effect. 


World Book Day! 

Wow! Year 3 your costumes were fantastic. You wrote some really great descriptions about your characters, well done. 



Science and DT

This term we had an exciting shelters project. Miss Whooley and Mrs Tarleton set us the challenge to create a shelter for 4 lego people which had to be water-proof and not let any monkeys in. We worked in teams and created some great projects. Take a look. 



 In term 4, we have been exploring and recognising 3D shapes. We were given nets and were challenged to make 3D shapes. We were extremely successful and look what we made! 



In our English sessions, we have been reading Charlotte's Web. We have thought about the different characters and their thoughts and feelings. We have acted out parts of the story and have been writing in role. Currently, we are working on persuasive writing.

One of the main characters in our class novel is Charlotte the spider, as we were completing our work we spotted a real spider in one of our trays. He is quite small so you will have to look closely!



This term in RE we have been learning all about our class saint St Bernadette. We completed our own research using the ipads to learn all about her. 

We also looked at our school mission statement in detail and thought about how we could live out our mission statement on a daily basis. 

Currently, our topic is Creation, we have been exploring how God called people by their names. At baptism God calls us by our names to be part of his family. Thank you to everyone who brought in their baptism candles, photos and certificates, it was great for us to see them. 

On Wednesday 5th October Father Henry came in and talked to us further about how God calls us by name at our baptisms. We then all joined in with a song which we really enjoyed. 





This term, we are learning all about rocks. We are doing a super job at learning all the tricky scientific words including; metamorphic rocks, sedimentary rocks and igneous rocks. Last week we completed an experiment with rocks looking at their density and whether or not they were permeable.  




From the 4th - 10th October it is World Space Week. We had a really exciting day on Wednesday when the Explorer Dome came in. We all climbed into the dome and experienced a show all about space including the planets, stars and solar system. The children were very well behaved and showed a huge amount of enthusiasm.
