Take Me Out Book Special


Yesterday, was Miss Lewis's World Book Day assembly with a Take Me Out twist. Some children from Year 3, 4 and 5 who are passionate about a book took part in the assembly and had one minute to sell their book to the rest of the school. The rest of the school were the audience and had to join in with the catch phrases and then we got chance to discuss with the people around us which book we thought sounded the best. We then voted for our favourite by making love hearts with our hands. Well done to Freya Sibson in Year 4 who’s book Harry Potter won the Broadbent Fold votes.

Author visit Ken Metcalfe


Yesterday, KS2 children had the privilege of meeting and speaking with Author Ken Metcalfe who recently published a new children’s book called 'The Magical of Kernow.' Please click on the link to see the trailer for this fantastic, mysterious book: Children who purchased his book got to meet Ken on a 1-1 and had their book signed. The children were very inspired by Ken and are looking forward to doing some creative writing. 



MR MEN and LITTLE MISS books are my favourite childrens books. They are short, funny, simple and colourful books that any aged child can enjoy. These books are written by Roger Hargreaves. Did you know? MR TICKLE sold a million copies in the first 3 years of being published! Thats a lot of tickles and laughter! I would love to know if you have read any of the MR MEN or LITTLE MISS books and which one is your favourite. These books can also be bought for as little as 10p each online. 


This week in Gymnastics we have been creating our own balances and exploring counter balances. Over the next few weeks, we will put these into small routines along with the different ways of travelling and rolling.

Welcome to Year 3's class blog. We have lifted off to a flying start after receiving a letter from a pen pal Iza Jayer who lives in the Arctic Circle and needs our help to win a hot air balloon competition to England. We have begun our year 3 journey by getting very messy, designing and creating our own hot air balloons and the children have suggested that we learn to write back to Iza Jayer. In Science we have started our first topic 'Magnets and springs' and this week will be exploring bar magnets.
