Optional Christmas Project

On Friday 8th January, Y3/4 will be holding a Viking Day. You have already shown lots of enthusiasm for our next Learning Journey so we thought it would be great to give you the opportunity to get more involved! If you want to make an accessory or outfit to wear for this day, you are more than welcome. You don’t have to and everyone will still get involved with the workshops but feel free to being along something if you so wish.

Team 3/4

End of term arrangements

Tomorrow you can wear your ‘Christmassy’ outfit to school. You DO NOT need to bring clothes to change into for the party. You are also allowed to bring in a game (no electronics) but you are responsible for looking after it. If you want to walk home at 2.30, you must bring in a signed letter from your parents.

There is no homework this week.

Remember to read as much as you can as well!


Over this term, Year 3 have been learning handbells with Mr Crouch. Today, both classes were rehearsing for a special performance in next weeks Christmas Service.

Gymnastics with Mr Toyne

Over the last few weeks Year 3 and 4 have enjoyed learning lots of gymnastic skills from Mr Toyne. He taught us lots of rolls, balances and jumps. We have all made great progress as well as having lots of fun!


Year 3 have been learning about our skeletons and this week we made some of our own skeletons using pasta!

What do owls eat?

As part of our Science topic on Animals, year 3 have been looking at the diets of different animals. This week, we have been investigating what an owl eats and how it digests it’s food. We found out that the owl cannot digest fur and bones and so produces a pellet. We dissected some of these pellets to see if we could find out what our owls had been eating for dinner!
