WW2 Workshop

Today, Year 3 experienced a Blitz school. They heard air raid sirens, hid in an air raid shelter and learnt all about WW2. 

Mrs Slate was impressed by Year 3's ordering of significant events in WW2.

They observed closely WW2 artefacts, a fabulous experience thanks to Mr B.

Maths At Home Competition Entries!

Here's Sam looking very pleased with himself after counting up his money from his pirate money box! Sam used multiplication and addition to get to the total. Great Maths at home! Well done Sam and Good Luck! Mrs Blomeley


Year 3 have enjoyed making their own dance routines up with a series of 6 steps/actions. Each week children take part in Dance as part of their PE with Tameside Sports' Coaches. 

Carrie's War

Reading our class text Carrie's War has given children an insight into how it must have felt being a child during WW2.

ChIldren said that they would have felt scared, worried and may have had butterflies in their stomach!  They did not like the idea of leaving their parents. 

Marvellous multiplying

Year 3 have been using both grouping and arrays to calculate multiplication questions.

Can you draw or make an array to show; 5 X 6  ?

Year 3 making fireworks and blobsters in Forest School

Year 3 have had a fantastic time during the last 2 weeks in their forest school sesions.  They have been making blobsters to look after the forest from clay, using colourful autumn leaves to make fireworks, playing on the mud slide and even riding a broomstick!  The sun has been shining for us which made the sessions even better.
