The Oakwell Hall Trip was a success! The children did pond dipping, mini beast hunting and they also got to explore animal skeletons. When asked about their favourite part they were very enthusiastic about the activities they did (and about the ice cream they got at lunch time!)

This has linked to our science topics Plants, Animals, Humans and Nutrition.

Year 3 School Trip- Please see attached letter for more information (letter to be sent out to children Friday 22nd June).


The children in Year 3 would like to invite you to our Year Group Assembly on Thursday 28th June 2018.  It will be held in the main hall at 2.30 pm. Due to space, please could we ask that only two adults per child attend.

The children have been working hard to bring you a wonderful overview of their time in Year 3 and are very excited to present it to you!

We look forward to seeing you then,

Mrs Fawell, Mr Hanslip & Miss Coombes.

We had a great time in Saltaire and really enjoyed learning more about Sir Titus Salt. The children behaved beautifully and we were very proud of them. We are very glad we don't have to live in Victorian times but really loved learning about life back then. Here are some photos...


Just a reminder: it is our visit to Saltaire on Thursday. As it is in school time, children must wear school uniform. They don't need to wear school shoes but must wear appropriate footwear for walking all day, whatever the weather [e.g. trainers/ walking shoes]. They also need waterproof coats and clothing which will keep them warm whatever the weather. At the moment the BBC website says sunny but not warm so keep looking! They will need a packed lunch and this will not be provided by school. It needs to be in a bag they can carry all day! Please get in touch if there is anything else you need to know! Thanks Miss Coombes.

We really enjoyed Greek day. We learned about Myths and Legends, tasted food and found out the basics of Greek language. Look at some photos!

Don't forget Greek Day tomorrow in Year 3- children can come dressed up!

Also, we are £150 short for our trip to Saltaire next week - just a reminder: although it is a voluntary contribution, if we don't have enough money, we can't go and that would be such a shame as it is a great visit!

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have planned a visit to Saltaire to help support our topic about Sir Titus Salt, which will be coming up soon.

This visit is booked for Thursday 29th March 2018. The coach will be leaving school at 9.15am and will return at approximately 3.00pm – depending on traffic.

During the educational visit, we will receive a tour of the village and the mill, which will show us the history and conditions at the time when it was built. The tour guides will be in costume and will take us around the village. We will spend the whole day there, so children will need a packed lunch, comfortable shoes for walking around and coats etc suitable for the weather.

A voluntary payment of £13 can be made via ParentPay. This payment includes coach travel and the cost of the tours. Unless enough money is received, we will be unable to run the visit.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Coombes, Mr Hanslip and Mrs Fawell

Spring Term 2018

We have been on a Rock Hunt around the school grounds for our topic 'Rocks and Fossils'. We collected examples of rocks of the three main types: Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic.



We have sorted and classified rocks using their features by making an enormous Carroll diagram.

We are looking forward to learning about the Ancient Greeks - it is our new topic and we have enjoyed learning about their heroes and villains in English.

We enjoyed doing lots of activities about Internet Safety on 6th February. We thought about scenarios and did drama about one of them...
