 ALL the children have been amazing this busy half term. Just a quick note,

I spoke to several of you at Parents' Evening about fantastic games and resources available to support your child with their times table. Please see below for more details.



Look at our amazing Royal Wedding inspired hats!!

We had a wonderful time at Burton Road park Tree planting- The children were amazing!!

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 Summer term we will be focusing on Stories with Imaginary Worlds, linking a Harry Potter theme.  We will be focusing mainly on the way an author uses language to settings and emotions.  

 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 Fractions. The children have been focusing on their understanding of the Year 3 formal written methods. 


Please make sure you are aware of your child's 'Instant recall facts' for this academic year. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for more details. no A link to a key website with a range of Maths games is below.

  • 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. 

Thank you laugh
