Skating at school

What an exciting day it has been! Today, as a way of celebrating the half way mark of our whole school topic ‘ice worlds’ Year 3 were given the opportunity to go ice skating at school! All of the children said it was really fun as well as a bit slippy!

There was a surprise in stall as all of sudden it began to snow! We were transported into a winter wonderland. One of children described it as “magical.” What a super day!


Over the last few weeks in our PSHE lessons, we have been learning about Road Safety.   We have been using the A*Stars website to learn about the different aspects of Road Safety.

Before we went on our walk in the local area, we watched some videos, looked at pictures and had some discussions about the different hazards that we might come across while we are walking, or using the roads and pavements.

We had a visit from the A*Stars team yesterday who took us out with our teachers to help us learn more about Road Safety.  We walked out of school, over the bridge, across the pedestrian crossing and into Tame Road.

While we were walking, we had to look out for hazards such as:

  • drives
  • moving cars
  • bins on the pavement
  • holes on the ground
  • T-junctions
  • parked cars

Safer internet week

This week marks safer internet week. Today, Year 3 completed a session all about being safe when using the internet.

As a class we discussed what permission means and what it means to have permission. We shared ideas of what we need permission for when using the internet, when it is safe to give permission and even practised giving permission.

Year 3 wanted to say, they really liked playing the permission game and they enjoyed working as a group.

Be internet safe!

A visit from Mr Bennett

This week we had another visit from Mr Bennet the music teacher. We stomped and clapped to create a beat. It was so much fun! We also learnt how to read some music 🎼

Year 3 really enjoyed their music session.

Thank you Mr Bennett😁

Pupil leadership

This week we have joined together with Nursery for two sessions. On Monday we created some icy art work based on protecting the polar bears and on Tuesday we worked together to make some Chinese lanterns as part of our Chinese New Year celebrations. The children also enjoyed doing some research on how to protect the polar bears as well as learning all about Chinese New Year.

The children would like to say that they have really enjoyed working with Nursery this week. We love joining together to help the littler ones and can’t wait to meet again! Thank you to our Nursery friends for sharing these experiences with us 🙂
