This weeks news

Tuesday 15th December.

Well we've safely made it to the end of another half term - and the long stretch that is the Autumn term! I am so proud of everything Class 3 has achieved in these unusual times. Our latest assessments show that we have all made progress this term and that is something definately worth celebrating - which is what we have done this week during our time in school. We have enjoyed a very hearty Christmas Dinner today followed by a virtual Panto  (oh yes we did!) and we still have our Christmas party to look forward to on Friday. It's been a while since I've had anything to dress up for so I think I'm as excited as everyone else about digging our some sparkly party wear. We have been very fortunate not to be too heavily affected by isolations and infections so fingers crossed we can reporty more of the same next term. I would just like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and here is to a peaceful and prosperous 2021.

Take Care everyone and enjoy your Christmas holiday.

Thursday 12th November.

It’s already week two of Autumn 2 term and we are busy busy busy again in Class 3. We have been continuing our work on the four operations in maths and we are now looking at a modern day re-telling of the story if King Midas in English. Our topic this term is a science one about space and the solar system and in PHSE we are looking at what makes a positive relationship with others. Plans are also a-foot for some festive celebrations and events this half term, all be it in a slightly different format to usual. 
Although we’ve entered a second phase of lockdown, it is lovely to still be able to see all of Class 3 in school. We are still very much maintaining our hand washing routines, cleaning down the classroom during break and lunchtimes and working within our class bubbles. Whilst the windows and doors are open for ventilation during the day we do have a blast of central heating first thing in a morning and in the evening to take the chill off, so hopefully children are comfortable with the temperature in school.

If you would like to speak to me about anything, please know that I am always available even if your don’t see me as much out on the playground.

Take care everyone.

Mrs P.

Hi Everyone!
Gosh, how the time flies when you’re having fun! So now we’re back into the swing of things it’s as if we’ve never been away. We’ve got our House Captains up and running, we’ve taken part in the National Poetry Day events and we were lucky enough yesterday to go over to church -  maintaining our social bubbles of course - to celebrate our Harvest Collective Worship with Geoff. We’ve even started thinking about Christmas: our Christmas Card designs are done and planning for Christmas decoration day is in full swing! 
Your child should now be bringing home weekly homework on Friday and this is due in on Wednesday. If you need more information about homework then please see the letter in your child’s homework folder or look on the homework section of our Class Page. Don’t forget to check our Gallery pages regularly too... it might help jog their memory when you ask them what they’ve done at school today! 

As always, if I can help with anything please don’t hesitate to get in touch and I look forward to speaking to you next week during our parent consultation phone calls.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Prince.



Wow! We're back in school! It has been so lovely to welcome everyone back into Class 3 and after a slow and steady start we are gradually getting back into old routines and learning some new ones. Things are different in school at the moment but all of the children have adjusted and adapted really well to living life in their class bubbles. As we continue to settle in I'll update the website with news of our Topic for this term (which will be a history topic on WWII) and homework routines. But for now, make sure you check out our gallery page for some 'back to school' photos from our first week. If you ever need to chat to me please feel to get in touch, either at the end of the day - if you can catch me on the playground - or via the school office phone number or email address.

Mrs P goes live!

Hope you’re all doing OK...a little message from me...

Joe Wicks work at The Body Coach on YouTube...😀

Hope you’re all ready for school at home today. Don’t forget to try and get yourself into a bit of a routine and find yourself a space to work in. Good luck everyone!

Hi Class 3.

Hope you're all doing OK - the last day in school for us tomorrow, it is very strange! I've now created a Y6 and a Y5 star page on the Learning from Home section. This is mainly for math, spelling and grammar activities - which are at different levels for each year group - and you should all have the paper copies of these too so that you can complete them at home. Next week, I'll set power points on the main 'Learning from home page' as we've been doing already but will also ask you to look at your homework paper packs (which are now also saved in the year group stars).

This all sounds rather complicated - but please don't worry it will hopefully make more sense on Monday. For now complete the work that is on the powerpoint and then enjoy your weekend! I'll be in touch again soon. 

Mrs P. 

Morning All.

We now have some children and families self isolating so I will start putting work on our Home Learning site from this afternoon. We have prepared some work for if the whole school closes down but whilst we are still in and teaching I will try to keep the children at home up to speed with the activities we are doing in class. 

I have my PPA this afternoon so will use some of this time to put together some resources and ideas for the rest of this week.

Keep smiling everyone! Mrs P. 

An impromptu music lesson with Mrs Prince today!

Wow....we’ve all had a lovely time and really enjoyed our school sleepover. The children have been amazing and so well behaved, as always you should be really proud of them. Plus, whilst having so much fun we’ve also been able to raise nearly £200 for Manicaland in Zimbabwe!

The morning after the night before....

Story time everyone!

Hot chocolate and snack time....

Film time at the sleepover....

Don't forget to take some photos of you reading for world book day! Mrs Prince took her book to the park!!!

The end of our Alchemy Island topic....what comes next?!

Safer Internet day...being kind online.

During writing lessons we’ve used our knowledge and experiences on Alchemy Island to construct letters home to ask to be rescued, suspenseful writing about travelling through the village to a local graveyard and gold fact-files. We’ve also studies a poem called Spinner by Gwen Dum about a spiders who has his secret web revealed after a cold and frosty night.


In art we have been developing skills related to drawing with perspective. We’ve  revisited the colour wheel to think about complementary colours and warm and cold colours. We’ve then combined these to create a fantasy landscape of somewhere we might expect to see on Alchemy Island.

Fantasy Landscapes

For science this term we have been looking at the changing states of materials. We’ve learnt about the differences between solids liquids and gases and we’ve used this knowledge to think about how we can mix and separate different solutions. 

Separating Mixtures

On Monday we received a package from a contact on Alchemy Island - inside we found rainbow sand, stinky gloop, gold nuggets, steel balls, glass crystals, golden orbs and copper pieces. In order to learn more about this magical island and the things that come from it we tested the properties of these materials in our science lesson. We thought about the hardness, transparency, solubility, conductivity and magnetism of each material. We've also written letters home to let loved ones know where we are now that we've travelled through our portals to Alchemy Island. Watch this space and we might share some of our letters with you!
