Class Rufford LOVED having the planetarium in school. We learned all about the Ancient Greeks, linking with our Myths and Legends English learning. And were amazed at the stars.

As part of our Christmas Tree festival entry the children in Class Rufford made these AMAZING decorations. The children did all their own sewing and design... Well Done we are so proud of the finished result. 


A huge Thank You to David for bringing in his Guide Dog Elliot and answering all our questions. The children were amazing and loved hearing about what it is like to have a Guide Dog and having a stroke of Elliot's golden fur. Well done! 


Remember it is almost time to reveal our winning house for this half term! Keep making the right choices and earning your team a house point.





During our Spring term we will be focusing on information texts, linking with our Science topic of Humans.  We will be looking at the way information text are set out and comparing fiction and non-fiction texts. We have also been looking at Myths and Legends. The children have loved writing their own 13th Labour of Hercules. 

 Just a polite reminder that the children need to keep practising their weekly spellings and their Year 3 spellings and your child should  be reading at least 4 times a week for 15 minutes.

Thank you no.  


   As part of our Maths Learning we try to make our lessons as fun and as practical as possible. The topics we have been exploring this half term are problem solving, including addition and subtraction. The children have been focusing on their understanding of the Year 3 formal written methods.

  • Key dates for your diary-​
  • Every other Tuesday is our Weekly Spelling Day. 
  • Our PE days are Monday and Fridays. Our P.E sessions this half term will be based on Dance and Gymnastics. 

However, it is important the children have their PE kits in school every day so we can be flexible.

  • Some of the children still don't have a water bottle in school. The children have access to their water all day, so please ensure they have a bottle in class.
  • Also, can all children please have their home learning books in school all week as we are launching a new approach to our home learning. Children will also be earning their Home Learning raffle tickets.
