New Topic


Welcome back for the second part of Autumn term!

Many children began their own research over the holiday on skeletons and muscles for our new topic: Head to Toe. Some of them brought in fabulous information posters. Thank you so much for your hard work!

We have started learning about this topic as a class. Today, after learning the names of the major bones in our body and what they do, we put together a paper skeleton (without a reference photo) in groups. 

Happy Harvest! 


Our KS2 Harvest service was a great success!

Year 3 came together to perform a play on words poem and they did a fabulous job speaking loud for everyone to hear.

Brilliant Beginning

As a Brilliant Beginning on September 6th, Paul from Life in the Rainforest ( visited Year 3. The children spent the morning sketching artefacts from his travels, such as a purse made from an armadillo, a boar's tusk and a bird's foot. After that, Paul showed everyone a variety of insects and arachnids that you might find in rainforests across the world. If they were brave enough, children had the chance to touch hissing cockroaches, a millipede and even a tarantula. In the afternoon, Paul showed both classes photos and videos from his decades of travel. A favourite amongst everyone was a video of a trapdoor spider jumping out to try and grab its prey, and a video of a woman selling barbecued tarantulas while sitting on a bucket of live ones! To end the day Paul unrolled an anaconda's skin and the children were able to hold it. It definitely was a brilliant day!
