Thank you so much for all of our lovely Christmas gifts! They are all very much appreciated.
We would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you all safe and well on Tuesday 7th January.
Thank you so much to all the parents/grandparents who came to church this morning to watch our wonderful Christmas performance. The children sang carols, modern songs, recited poems and made everyone laugh! Mrs Russell said 'I bet this is the only Christmas performance in the World which mentions a Greggs Festive bake!'
Well done Year 3! We were so proud of you all.
Year 3’s amazing homework museum........
We invited the rest of our school to visit our amazing museum. We showed off our projects to everyone. They were very impressed!

Can we help out?
We had visitors come and talk to us about giving back to people at
Christmas. They told us about the elderly who don’t have anyone at
Christmas and can feel quite sad. They asked us to bring in gifts for them
so they can open them at Christmas what a lovely idea!
Here are the spellings for week beginning 25/11/19:
We will test the children on Friday 29th November.

We have enjoyed learning about Children in Need today! Everyone looks fab in their posts and stripes
We loved making our Pudsey faces out of all the small change you brought in so thank you
We have enjoyed being extra kind to our secret buddy this week! Well done Year 3
We are really enjoying our ‘Secret buddy’ week. We all have a special friend who we are looking after this week. We have talked about being kind to everyone.
Don’t forget that we are selling biscuits this week in the yard. 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪
During guided reading, we read a description about Stonehenge. We had to highlight the description so we could build it out of biscuits! What do you think?
Year 3 have had a super day at the Great North Museum. We linked our Science and History together. We spent lots of time in the Ice Age to Iron age gallery looking at all of the amazing artefacts the museum had to show. We took part in a workshop that linked Rocks and Light, we learnt how different animals use colours to camouflage themselves and how to mimic other animals.
We were very impressed with the way the children behaved! Well done everyone.
We learnt about the layers of the soil today. Then we decided to make our own. We used a cookie for the bedrock, marshmallows for the rocky soil, custard for the subsoil, crushed biscuit for the topsoil, green sprinkles for the grass and strawberry laces for the worms!
It even tasted nice...
Here are the spellings for this week-
They will be tested on Friday 15/11/19
Today we had a visitor to Year 3. Megan from Operation Encompass came in to talk about our feelings and how to deal with different emotions. We played some games and carried out some activities. We came up with lots of strategies to deal with feeling angry.
Wow! We had an amazing day for our Stone Age Day. The children absolutely loved it and enjoyed the different activities. Throughout the day we made roundhouses, made stone age jewellery, make flint stones from soap, cooked a real stone age meal with beef and fish, baked pitta bread and had a campfire. Well done year 3!
