Year 3 Circuits

Last week, both Larch and Juniper took part in a circuit challenge. Not only did we practise our sport skills (throwing, dribbling, javelin, etc) but we worked on our communication and ability to work as a team. Miss Reynolds and Miss Bennett were very impressed with the mature behaviour they witnessed. Well done Year 3!

Mr Hughes introduces Larch the alien!

Larch class were ever so lucky to receive a visit today from Mr Hughes. He read his new poem about an alien called Larch who visits the six main biomes – a lovely link to our geography topic! We all LOVED the poem and are very grateful for Mr Hughes taking his time to share it with us. Our favourite parts included the mention of the ‘Cosmic Burger Place’ and the mention of Miss Reynolds. We are really excited to re-look at the poem next term during our poetry topic.

Rainforest Report Writing

This week in English we have been publishing our non-chronological reports on a rainforest animal. We used our knowledge from our geography lessons on biomes, alongside research completed in English and computing lessons, to create some fantastic pieces of work. Miss Reynolds is very impressed!

Anti-Bullying Day 2019

The rest of our day was spent completing lots of different activities which celebrated anti-bullying and the theme: change starts with us. As a class we discussed that if we all start by making small changes to our own individual behaviour, we can work together to successfully challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with working together!


In PE today we started our new dance topic. Using an image from ‘The Iron Man’ written by Ted Hughes as our stimulus, we worked in groups to come up with different movements. We took a taught motif and changed it using different levels, speeds, directions and added in our own movements too!
