Our fantastic new school councillors - Morgan and Charlie!

On Tuesday 19th September, we walked into our classroom TRANSFORMED into a rainforest! We even had the sounds and smells! We spent the morning creating rainforest animals in our Kagan teams and we even had a competition with Year 4. We talked about what we knew already and what we wanted to find out.

As part of our whole-school World Food Day celebration, Year 3 received an exciting box with clues inside. We worked out our focus country was Italy. We looked at an Italian artist called Renato Guttuso who was famous for illustrating an Italian recipe book with beautiful paintings. 

We had a fantastic morning making (and eating!) Spaghetti Bolognaise. We thought it was extremely delicious!!! We also learnt some Italian and designed our own packaging in the style of our artist.

Fantastic Rainforest Homework

1940's dress up day. We looked FANTASTIC!


As part of Road Safety Week, we had a science lesson investigating the best colours to be used to keep you visible in the dark as a pedestrian or a cyclist. 

We made predictions as to what colours would be the most and least visible and why and discussed why it is so important to be seen on the road.

Bramble Bank Wood Autumn 1


We are so lucky to be able to see the Tour Of Britain TWICE in one day! We are going to have an action-packed day of races, celebrating and watching the race - fantastic!

Keep looking back for photos!


Roald Dahl Day!


Here we are practicing our Harvest poem ready for the Harvest Festival!

As part of our 2 week focus on WW2, Year 3 have been looking at all aspects of evacuation and evacuee life.

We have made gas masks, used our inference skills when looking at pictures of evacuees, drama activities linking to evacuees, as well as writing a diary entry as an evacuee.

We have been reading 'My Secret War Diary' about a girl called Flossie who lives in the countryside and has a number of evacuees come to stay. We have been linking our writing this week to this book.

In maths we have been looking at rationing. We estimated the weights of what a child would be allowed per week and then measured using the scales in our Kagan teams. We were shocked at how little these amounts were!

Children in Need 2017 - We made Pudsey ears!


Year 3 (as part of a whole school activity) made Christmas cards and we delivered them to the village. It was heartwarming to spread the Christmas cheer!
