Welcome to Year 3!

A warm welcome to Year 3! We have had a great start to the term and the children have all settled well into the routines of their new year group. We enjoyed learning about our class names Oystercatchers and Kittiwakes.

A very busy summer term

Year 3 have been extremely busy this half term. Both classes have been swimming and have made excellent progress.They have been to Live Tales Theatre where they created their own story and had a great morning doing drama and coming up with some fabulous ideas. Our trip to The Roman Army Museum and Vindolanda was extremely successful, the children were amazing, their behaviour impeccable and a great day was had by all. Some of the children even got to handle some of the artefacts from the excavation site.

We only have 2 weeks left, the weather is beautiful and we look forward to an exciting end to the year. Please see the Year 3 gallery for photos to see what we have been getting up to!

Pen pals in China!

Year 3 have received letters this week from their pen pals in China, they were very excited and can’t wait to write back. We will be having a lunchtime letter writing session so that the children can reply as soon as possible as their Chinese friends are very keen to hear from them. They were thrilled to get their first letters from us, almost as thrilled as our children were to receive their reply.

Over the next few weeks, we will be video calling our Chinese friends and getting to know a little bit more about Chinese culture. The school that our friends attend is in BaoDing, Hebei in China.

World Book Day

World Book Day was a massive success with some amazing costumes, lots of reading and we were very proud of our Year 3 children. They welcome Year 1 children to read with them and were very mature in their attitudes and behaviour.
