Please support your child and encourage the completion of homework as it will either revisit work already taught that week or prepare the children for what is coming up the next week.


Science Week

This week it has been Science Week across the school. Each day the children have taken part in different experiments and activities. Here are some of the children from Year 3 hard at work (whilst having fun!)


Saltaire School Trip

We really enjoyed our trip to Saltaire, even though we were rather cold and wet! The children walked around the local area with a guide and had been given a new identity; someone that lived in Saltiare and worked for Sir Titus Salt in the mill. Some children were brothers and sisters, some were married and some were mothers and sons! After lunch we went into the mill. Here are some of the pictures of our day...


Performing Arts

Over the next half term the children will be working with Miss Graham during Performing Arts sessions. 3HF had their first lesson this week and came back very excited and full of information on Gods and Goddesses, linking to the upcoming topic on Ancient Greece. 



So far in PSHE Year 3 have been looking at relationships. We had some wonderful discussions about what makes a relationship healthy or unhealthy and the children then turned these into a 'Recipe for a Healthy Relationship'. Have a look at some of the brilliant recipes they have written... 



This week the children did some writing about their strengths and goals. They were focusing on remembering all of the ‘Year 3 Non-negotiables’; capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, handwriting and spellings. They were also trying to use paragraphs in their writing!

Here is what some of the children wrote:

“I am not very good at football but I can improve by practicing because practice makes perfect”- Ellie.

“I think I am the best at rugby because I am good at tagging”- Ashton.

“There are wonderful things I am good at but the main one is dance”- Isla.

“I like caring and helping other people”- Robyn.

“I want to get better at doing flips, athletics, playing the trumpet and keeping my room tidy so I can get a tortoise quicker!”- Arthur.

“I think I am good at running, football and swimming and I want to be a footballer when I’m older”- Oliver.


Remembrance Day

Throughout Art and History Week the children have been doing different activities to commemorate the World War 1 Centenary. Below are some of the beautiful pictures the children created and some letters to The Unknown Soldier.  


Spreading the Christmas cheer

In PSHE the children have been thinking about how they can be good friends and members of the community. We have discussed the power of a smile, a compliment and simply a 'good morning!' and how this can positively impact someones day. The children then created a Christmas decoration which complimented another member of the class. Here are just a few of the examples that brightened our day...
