Please use them at home to quiz your child on their learning and see how much knowledge they can remember.

  • Say hello to your first term attendance champions!!

    You read that correctly, folks!

    Year 3 managed to just narrowly pass Year 1 for overall attendance this term. Well played Year 1, it was quite close!

    To celebrate this, we took to the children to Burston Garden Centre for a lovely little morning treat of hot chocolate and biscuits. Afterwards, we walked around a bit and got to see all the unique and colourful fish they had there. Some of them were absolutely stunning, so be sure to check them out if you get the chance!

    To all other classes in the school, a message: we intend to keep this ball rolling and win again next term. Best bring your A-game!

     

  • Our trip to Bhaktivedanta Manor!

    This week we visited a Place of Worship. We went to the Hindu Temple, Bhaktivedanta Manor.

    Here we got to visit the shrine, where people come to pray and worship the Hindu Gods. We listened to some percussion instruments and the song ‘Hare Krishna’.

    We then went on to learn about the story of Rama and Sita, an important story in the Hindu faith. Whilst learning the story, we role played and dressed up as the important figures in the story. Then, everyone got to try on traditional clothing such as saris and turbans.

    To end our wonderful visit, we learnt about how and why cows are sacred to the Hindu faith and we even got to feed them!

    Here are some pictures from our visit to the Mandir.

  • Greetings from Brazil, South America!

    For World Food Day in Year 3, we decided to make a delicious traditional Brazilian sweet treat; Brigadeiros! But we put a twist on it; we used the chocolate to coat some short breads with. In term, we got some delicious Brigadeiro shortbreads!

    These lovely, but simple, desserts are made up of only cocoa powder, butter, and condensed milk. They can be customised and changed in a number of ways; add sprinkles to them, or maybe coconut shavings, how about using white chocolate? The sky is the limit!

    I could go on and on about these lovely little things, but I think I’d much rather go eat my fifth one…

    Happy Half Term everyone!

  • Our Science lesson this week was absolutely…HUMERUS!

    This half term we’ve been learning all about the ins-and-outs of the human (and some animals!) body.

    This includes things like what proper nutrition looks like, why we should eat balanced diets, what different -parts of our bodies look like and their functions and more!

    Lately, we’ve been talking about different bones and how they interact and their locations.

    To put our class to the test, I pit our different groups against one another to see what group could structure and label a human skeleton the quickest. Everyone enjoyed it and managed to get it done and correctly at that! Superb teamwork, Year 3.

    Here’s a joke for you! Which bone always lies? (see bottom for answer)

    (The fibula!)

  • Room on the Broom Trip!

    Hi all,

    Today we took a trip to see Room on the Broom at the Radlett Centre! All the children (and myself included, won’t deny that) had an absolute blast seeing this performance. The entire class was so engaged and their participation was phenomenal. So many of the children told me throughout the rest of the day just how much fun they had and that they wanted to see more plays. Fingers crossed this won’t be the last one we do!

    Below are just a few pictures from our fun-filled Friday.

    Whoosh!

  • Exciting Learning Coming Soon ….

    Look back here soon to see all the learning that is taking place in our class.
