We have made an amazing start to Reception! We have all settled in well, we are loving learning our new sounds, and we have really embraced the Science focus this half term.
Thank-you all so much for coming to our Curiosity Cafe. We made train carriages for our Big Draw challenge. We used paint on our hands and feet, we used crayons and pens, and we did some gluing as well! It was really good fun and we loved the results!
We hope you have had a great summer.
Please see our welcome to year 3 letter.
Our new homework grid is here too.

On Wednesday 16th December we are holding our first ever music concert. The children who have been learning guitar, trumpet, flute and violin will be performing in a special assembly.
We are coming to the end of our science topic looking at sound and hearing. We have used an oscilloscope to look at sound waves created by our singing!
Children, parents, grandparents and staff enjoyed a wonderful hour or so in which they shared the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, planted magic beans and created collage beanstalks.
Year 3 Reading Café September 2015 Thank you to all who came and supported the children with their learning. Our focus was on story telling using the Oliver Jeffers book “Stuck” for ideas and inspiration. The children wrote their own versions of the story and some created story trees which they used to tell a story orally.
Welcome to Year 3 !
In our first week our topic was the Tour of Britain – our stage was Lancashire. We built our own versions of Blackpool Tower and we had a great day on the Friday with a tour of all the stages!
On Thursday 7th May Year 1 and Year 2 welcomed Mr Hall for a day of pirate/ocean explorer themed fun. The children learnt to read a map and use compass directions before searching for hidden treasure (little flags with letters on!) around the school grounds. In the afternoon they enjoyed a fascinating talk, accompanied by some amazing photos about two very different islands which Mr Hall has visited. I am sure that all of the children will remember the name of the bird with blue feet which is found in the Galapagos Islands!
