1960's Day - Thursday 6th December

Year 3 have had a fantastic day to celebrate the 1960's. Lots of the year group dressed up in 1960's gear. The children have created pop art, followed recipes from the era and danced to music from the time. The children enjoyed tasting their creations during the afternoon. Photos are now in the gallery, take a look! A huge 'Thank you' to all the family members who came into school to help this morning. We hope that you all enjoyed the morning as much as we did.

'Dragon Days' production 4th and 5th December

All of the Year 3 children have done a fantastic job as part of the choir for the Year 3 and 4 winter production of 'Dragon Days'.

Well done Year 3!

Cheddar Gorge Trip - Tuesday 2nd October

Year 3 had a fantastic time on our trip to Cheddar Gorge. The children will tell you many stories and fascinating facts about their activities. Each child seemed to have a favourite activity whether it was 'Dreamhunters', Gough's Cave, the Prehistory Museum with the flint spears and axes, the demonstration of Stone Age life from a hunter gatherer or climbing 274 steps to the top of Jacob's Ladder to get a good view of Cheddar Gorge.

The adults that went on the trip were delighted to hear many positive comments from members of the public praising the behaviour and manners of the Year 3 children. Well done Year 3!



Curriculum Overview

P.E. Kit

Each class has two sessions a week requiring kit for indoor or outdoor use. Children need black shorts, a red t-shirt and a pair of trainers. During outdoor P.E. lessons, children may need warmer clothes as the weather becomes cooler, so we ask for a plain dark pair of joggers and a zip up jumper. For safety reasons long hair needs to be tied back and earrings need to be removed, apart from in the first six weeks of having pierced ears.

Each class has Games or P.E. on the following days:


Class Outdoor Indoor
7 Tuesday Thursday
8 Tuesday Monday
9 Tuesday Wednesday
