Hi Y3/4,

Just a little reminder to keep playing on Times Tables Rock Stars. It is a good way to keep practising those tables and keep your speed up in answering questions. Your username and password are in the front of your reading diary. Look out for any battles that I set, such as Y3 v Y4 or girls V boys, who will be the winners?

Also if you play in the studio area and earn a certificate keep a look out in your school email for it.

Keep TT Rocking!

Coal Mining

We have been learning about mining in our local area and Grimethorpe Colliery. We have been finding out about its history and some of the artefacts. As you can see we have really enjoyed role playing. Mr Roberts let us borrow his artefacts, he was miner. This is part of our current learning so you could try to find out information from your family. We thought of some questions to find the answer to in our video below.

Our Reading Areas

We had a reading event in school.

Adults were invited to look at reading in our class. They really enjoyed it!

Reading in Year 3.pptx


The Victorians

Our topic throughout the Spring term is The Victorians. We have found out so much information and we have made a beautiful display of our work so far.

We went on a visit to The Victorian Classroom, Fairfield House, Barnsley and the children had such a wonderful time. They travelled back in time to the old classroom, did role play, used the laundry room, slate boards, pen and ink and played with the toys. This was such a fun learning experience!


Our history topic for the Autumn term is all about The Romans. We have researched all about them and found out many interesting facts. We have made a Roman catapult in our D&T lessons, we have used role play and puppets to act out Roman life in the past and we have even had a Roman Day in school.

We made a Pyramid Catapult.


We have made a harvest wreath. We found out all about harvest and Cudworth Food Bank. Our school collects food for our Harvest Assembly and we donate it to them to help those in need. We have made wheat sheaves out of salt dough for our assembly.
