French Day 

As our French topic came to an end, we celebrated with a French Day. The children were given the option to dress up, take part in French folk dancing, taste French food and compete in a crepe tossing competition. 

Crepe Competition

Once the crepes and pans had cooled down, we had a crepe tossing competition. 

I think you can see on the children's faces how much fun they had!!

R.E. The Holy Trinity 

This term we have had a visit from the Hand to Mouth team. We worked in pairs to take part in a journey to learn

about The Holy Trinity. What did the children say about the day? 

"I learnt about God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit."    " I had time to think and reflect."

" It was nice to work with a partner and go round the different activities." 

" My favourite activity was putting the petal in the water." 

What is Mindfulness? 

After a strange year with COVID, we know how important it is to look after our mental health and wellbeing. 

Year 3 have been exploring mindfulness techniques during PSHE lessons such as concentrating on breathing, clearing our minds and focusing on relaxing. 

Music - This year we are learning the clarinet with the help of Miss Stafford from Musica Kirklees.

Below you can see us learning how to put the clarinet together, how to hold it correctly and playing the note E.  

The Stone Age 

During the Autumn term, our topic is all about the Stone Age.

We have been learning about how they lived, what they ate and what their houses were like. One of our favourite

activities so far has been designing and making our stone age jewellery! 

Classroom Displays 

We like our classroom to be bright and colourful. We are proud of our work!
