We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.


We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.


We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.


We will foster belief through believing in yourself, taking on challenges and digging deep within yourself to conquer fears.

Year 3

Hello Year 3, 


We hope you are safe and well. 


Please see below: links to home learning for you to access across the rest of the summer term. 


We recognise every family has different pressures at this time and may not all be able to access the full home learning offer. Please do not let that worry you at all. Yours and your child’s wellbeing is top of any list. Our suggestion would be to prioritise the English and maths and physical activity.

Hoppy Easter Year 3! 🐥


Here is a link to some online safety resources for you to use whilst at home. There are simple 15 minute activities for different ages, which will be refreshed every fortnight.

There are lots of fun and interesting things you can do on the internet. And it can be a great way to stay in touch with friends. But it’s important to understand how to stay safe online.

Sometimes people will try to trick you into clicking dangerous links or sharing things about yourself. Or something you’ve shared might be used to bully or frighten you.

For more information and advice on how to keep yourself safe online visit the Childline website;

Every day David Walliams will be reading one of his stories to you. Please click on the picture below to listen.


Story time with Mrs Jones! 

Here is a story for you to enjoy read by Mrs Jones. Let us know if there any other stories you would like the Y3 teachers to read over the next few weeks. 


Hope you enjoy! 

A 'splendiferous' day in the forest!

What a 'gloriumptious' time we had in the forest with a range of 'wondercrump' activities! Hide and seek started us off, with Mr Wilson definitely being the hardest to find. Year 3 made houses and villages fit for the Minpins - there was even a swimming pool! Roald Dahl's incredible characters came to life on the trees or the forest floor, and the delights created in the kitchen were of Michelin Star quality- if only the Twits had been free to come for dinner. Mrs Jones wasn't quite as keen!

Toasted marshmallows, warm juice and hot chocolate were the icing on the cake for a truly 'phizz-whizzing' day.

Thank you Year 3.

It's '6 Ways to be Smart' time...

Phase 2's '6 Ways to be Smart' work from the Spring term has looked amazing displayed on our corridor. Just a reminder that this Summer's tasks are due in on the week commencing 24th June. To give everyone a chance to contribute, we will be looking at the homeworks later on during the week.
Eliza in Year 3 and Violet in Year 4 are doing their bit to support the seas in the fight against plastics pollution and the loss of critical habitats, by raising money. At the weekend they sold cakes to raise £10. This means the total raised so far is £40. A fantastic effort. Well done to you both. 

Stone Age explanations...

This week, Year 3 have been writing explanation texts. Our theme was looking after a sabre-toothed, or a woolly mammoth! We have drafted our work and then completed an editing process to 'up-level' it. Next we are publishing the work using bordered, presentation sheets.

Learning about Judaism

On our RE days, Year 3 learned about Judaism. Our visitor, Ann, is a Jewish educator and led a whole school assembly before working with both Year 3 classes on Shabbat, synagogues and how Jewish people live. We learned about similarities and differences between Judaism and Chriustianity.
