Announcing "P.E with Joe" | Daily LIVE workouts for kids | The Body Coach

Starting Monday 23rd March I'm going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel. With the schools closed and with many of you spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive. Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic. The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even the adults can get involved.
You don't need any equipment, so just tune in to his YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.

Creative homework for the Summer term


Next half term our topic will be volcanoes and mountains. For their creative homework, Year 3 must create something on this topic. This could be a model made out of recycled materials or Lego, a fact file, a piece of art work or anything else you choose to create. Whilst school is closed, feel free to post any of your creations on Seesaw for us to take a look at and so we can share some examples on the Year 3 web page. The deadline for this work will be confirmed at a later date.

Learning outside the classroom is an important part of the Y3 curriculum. So far this year we have visited Belton House and the children had a fantastic day learning about the Brownlow family and their Christmas traditions.


On Monday 9th March, the children will be visiting Cadbury World as part of both out 'Food, Glourious Food' and our Rainforests topic. We will be learning how chocolate is made, the history of chocolate and about the rainforests cocoa beans grow in. The children will also be taking part in a rainforests workshop. The cost of the visit is £15.


In the summer term, we will be visiting Brackenhurst for a Stone Age Experience day. The children will be learning about life during the Stone Age in a workshop run by an expert. The cost of this visit will be between £10 and £15. 3SR will going on Wednesday 10th June and 3LW will be going on Thursday 11th June.




Our children have loved anti-bullying week as we have done so many different activities.  Our English lessons were about the book, Willy the Wimp and we made our own character ready for our story writing next week.


We learnt a poem called Power for Good and worked in teams to perform it.  We also made a friendship wreath full of traits that we look for in a friend.  Our anti-bullying poster looked at what bullying is and how we can change bullying to make our school a better place.
