Pumpkin Competition

Well done to all of you who took part.

You all made such a creative and fantastic pumpkin.

The winner in Year 3 was Antonina, well done!

Spanish Day

We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. We found out lots of interesting facts about Spain. Then we thought of lots of questions for our Spanish teacher Mr Ruiz.


In our geography lesson we found out about how Harvest is celebrated around the world. We looked at a map of the world and found out where our food comes from. On our wreath we wrote some facts about Harvest and what we do in our Harvest Assembly at our school. We collect food from home and donate it to Cudworth Food Bank.

In our art lesson we made a hedgehog using salt dough.

Roald Dahl Day 2018

We had such fun celebrating! We found out many interesting facts about Roald Dahl. We made collages of some of the different characters, watched The BFG film, read different Roald Dahl books, wrote about him, made bookmarks and we even had cakes to celebrate.

Our Reading Corner

Stone Age to the Iron Age

We have really enjoyed looking at different artefacts and carrying out lots of research. In our art lesson we made drawings of cave paintings. We did this under our tables to pretend we were inside a cave.

We have a research area which has books, information and QR codes to help us find out more about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

Safety Day 2018

In Year 3 we watched a video about how to cross the road safely and wrote all about it. We completed a quiz about it then we made a road safety poster to help younger children understand road safety.
