A new year with some new routines!
Hi Class 3! Only a few days of the ‘longest summer holiday ever’ left. I’ll be back in school from tomorrow getting everything ship-shape and ready for our new term. I can’t wait to see you all back in the classroom together and even though there will be a few new routines, there will be lots of familiar things to look forward to - including just getting to see each other and having a good old catch up / getting to know you session!
Don’t forget to see if your uniform still fits, and try to get a good nights sleep on Sunday ready for an early start Monday morning!
See you all very soon.....
Mrs Prince 😀👏😀🎶

News from Chris and Simon....!
Peak District Music Centre are running online rehearsals for beginner wind instrument players and Youlgrave Primary School pupils who play an instrument have been invited to join in for free this term. Rehearsals are run via zoom on Tuesday evenings at 6pm. The students play music together and then have a fun quiz. Our players have been really enjoying it.
All music is available to download from our beginner wind webpage https://www.pdmc.org.uk/bw (this is only accessible via a link - it is usually only available to members). For more information and for a link to the next rehearsal please contact the PDMC administrator, Marion Redman (email@example.com).
Best wishes- and thank you for helping us with this

Back to school....it’s nice to have folks back, we’re looking forward to seeing more of you as soon as we can!
Another new term and another new topic! We're going to be looking at the topic Revolution which covers the period of time that Queen Victoria was on the throne. Lots of new ideas and inventions came about during this era which we will look at in more detail over the next few weeks. The current plan is that some of the Y6's will be back in class with me and the remaining Y6's and Y5's will continue with Home Learning for the time being. I will do my very best to make everyone feel as included as possible with all that we do and the best way of doing this is for us all to keep using our Class Blog! I look forward to seeing some of you in school soon and I look forward to hearing from the rest of you via the Blog pages - take care everyone! Mrs P.
Mrs Prince Video Blog....
Hi everyone - just to let you know that if you visit the VCR page on the home learning site ( it’s the link just above the class blog link) I’ve created a weekly video to say hi and I’ll do one every Friday to stay in touch. I don’t know if you guys can post videos but I’ll do a bit of research this week and let you know.
So we start this term at home - which is something new to all of us. As we continue with our home learning using the great sites that are out there at the minute we'll also continue with our school topics. Our next topic is Gallery Rebels and we'll be exploring the different art movements throughout history right up the present day. I look forward to seeing some of your art projects related to this topic and hope to find the time to have a go at some of them myself!
Take care everyone.... Mrs Prince.
This term's topic is Peasants, Princes and Pestilence. We'll be looking at the Feudal system in the Middle Ages, the Peasant's Revolt and of course the Black Death. Please have a look at the planning document below to see what we'll be covering and of course we'll be taking a trip to Eyam at the end of this half term - more details to follow later!
Welcome to Class 3.

Our new topic this half-term will be Alchemy Island - we'll be doing lots of exploring on this magical island and a few science projects too. Have a look at the topic introduction and knowledge organiser to get a flavour of what we'll be doing in class. We'll also be updating our weekly news pages with photographs of activities we do in school to support our learning so keep checking back in to see what we've been up to!
As always if there is anything you want to chat to me about please feel free to catch me on the playground or make an appointment to see me via the school office.
Welcome to Alchemy Island
Our trip to the National Memorial Arboretum on Monday was a real experience for everyone. It was an amazing place and I'm sure if you asked your child they would love to take you and show you some of the memorials we learnt about. The children were so well behaved and very respectful of the venue - you should be extremely proud of them all - I was! Watch out for an article in the next issue of the Bugle telling you more about our trip.
As part of our topic we have been reading Michael Morpurgoes Private Peaceful and using the main characters Tommo and Charlie in our diary writing about being on the front line. We're still reading the book as our class story and hope to get through it before the end of this term! We've also done some great drama work to help us tell the story of being on the front line - I was really impressed with the way Class 3 were able to capture the emotions and empathise with themes of war and conflict.
This term we have been consolidating our multiplications skills and mastering the art of fractions. Class 3 are now pretty good and simplifying, finding equivalents, creating common denominators, ordering, adding and subtracting fractions! Great work everyone!
Our topic for this half term has been Fallen Fields, which is all about the act of Rememberance around WWI and subsequent conflicts. It has been a timely topic over the month of November and has given the children some valuable context to the service we attended at church on 11.11.19.
Class 3 and myself would like to say a big thank you to all the families that allowed children to bring in what must be very precious artifacts. We've had sketches, medals, ribbons and photos all telling stories of family members from the time of WWI.
