Autumn Newsletter

In our first term, we hosted a MacMillan Coffee morning. Parents and carers were invited to get together and raise money for charity. We linked out DT topic to this event. Children learnt about the history of MacMillan Coffee morning, what ingredients were needed for baking and where these are produced. After baking the cakes children were able to decorate their cakes. 


Science investigation to find out which object reflects light the most.

Year 3 Stone Age

The year 3 children have started the  Stone Age topic this half term. We started of by creating Stone Age hand printing using charcoal. Children were very creative by drawing pictures and creating some super hand prints.  

Cave paintings

As we are a Church of England school we have Religious Education (RE) lessons weekly. Our first unit of RE was based on the  Christian story of Creation.  Children enjoyed going to the Peace Garden to collect  items to show God's marvellous creations. We also looked at how the world was created by God.

We also study other religions, so children can understand the world around them. Next term, we will be studying Hinduism.

World book day Thursday 2nd March Comics.

It was lovely to hear the excitement as children discussed which characters they were dressed as.  We focused on the Dogman Comic!  Children read the story, engaged in role-play and wrote the next part of the comic.  Children showed that they have such a wonderful imagination.
