Christmas Fun!

User Rating:  / 0



This week year three have been enjoying exciting Christmas activities to celebrate their hard work this half term. We have had a creative week and made reindeer food to sprinkle outside on Christmas Eve, Christmas cards, tea-light holders, Christmas puddings, tree decorations and Christmas pictures.

 The children delivered fantastic performances of 'It's a Miracle' on Monday and Tuesday, which we were very proud of them for. We have also enjoyed our Christmas party and spotted some brilliant dance moves!

 We are incredibly sad to have to say goodbye to Miss Sartori this week, but are extremely excited about meeting baby Peanut!

 Thank you for all of your support this term.

 We hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!

It's a Miracle!

User Rating:  / 0

This week children have continued with their rehearsals for our show 'It's a Miracle'. As a Key Stage we are so proud of all the children, our singers have worked so hard to learn the songs and the actors and dancers are fabulous!

Children have also completed their drama work with Miss Wilson and Year 3 were treated to a performance from the after school drama club on Monday, a rather revolting version of Cinderella! Year 3 then wrote thank you letters to Miss Wilson as they have really enjoyed the sessions.

A letter will be going out this week regarding next week's class Christmas Parties.

Miss Sartori is waddling slowly round the school, occasionally being mistaken for a christmas pudding ;-)

Christmas Is Coming!!

The Christmas tree has arrived! The children have made some lovely decorations to go on the tree in the hall and on our class trees. We have begun whole Key Stage rehearsals now for the christmas production, teachers stayed late on Tuesday evening to paint and create the back drop (we hope you like Miss Maltby's farm animals!). Year 3 have been practising their song which is coming along beautifully. Please remember to have costumes in school by Monday.

RML spelling and phonics groups have worked really well this half term, children are loving the short, sharp sessions and the exciting praise they get, ask them to give you a marshmellow clap, a firework or a Yee-Har!

Pen licenses are still hard to come by, but the children across the year group are making good progress towards them.

Year 3 have really been enjoying their weekly drama lessons with Caroline Wilson from Arthur Terry School. Over the last few weeks we have been exploring different weather conditions such as blizzards, droughts and hurricanes through the art of drama. This has been great to watch, the children have such great imaginations! 

We have also been exploring calligrams and shape poetry through writing and ICT in literacy and fractions, multiplication and division in maths. The children have been working really hard and some lucky folk have already got their pen licence! Well done and keep trying everyone else, yours may be just around the corner..!

Who would have thought Rocks and Soils were so interesting?

User Rating:  / 0

Year 3 have been really enjoying their new science topic, looking at the characteristics of rocks and soils. They have been looking for, describing and sorting different types of rocks and discussing their uses based on their properties. We have have also carried out some VERY scientific experiments using different types of rocks and learned some new key vocabulary. Ask your children what 'permeable' and 'impermeable' mean. Clever cloggs' will be able to tell which rock we found was the most permeable and which we found was the least permeable, but can they give you reasons why?

Oh dear, next week we are investigating soils, I can see some muddy hands and faces on the horizon!

Super Science Work Year 3!


Extreme Weather!

User Rating:  / 0


Welcome back after what we hope was a lovely and relaxing half term! The children are full of festive cheer and stories about trick or treating or the upcoming Bonfire Night Celebrations. This week they have been photographed in extreme weather conditions, brollys and hats at the ready! These pictures will be used to create the front covers of their topic books for our new Autumn 2 topic, Extreme Weather. We will begin teaching this next week. Hopefully it won't be a sign of the weather changes to come in Sutton in the next few months!

Hopefully all parents and children are clear about the moodle homework this week, we look forward to reading your submissions.

Year 3 Monsters!

User Rating:  / 0

No not the children, the mythical monsters they have been making! Thank you for sending in lots of boxes etc to help create the monsters. The children have been studying pneumatics in the last few weeks and have been looking at, discussing and explaining how air pressure can make things move. We tried to use what we had learned to create a monster with moving parts! Here is an example of one of our creations:

This week we have been celebrating European Language Week. As a year group we have chosen to learn some Greek. We were very grateful to Mrs Georgiou for coming in help us teach the children a basic conversation. The children's pronunciation is much better than ours!

We have also tried to re-create the Greek flag using blue and white hats. These activities have linked really well with our Mythical Monsters topic that also covers Ancient Greece.

Year Three have been working hard since last week. During our topic work we have been designing and making our Ancient Greek topic book front covers in the style of an Ancient Greek vase. We have also been acting out Ancient Greek myths in the style of Ancient Greek theatre. Some children from 3SG will be attending the community fayre on Saturday to perform a Flamenco dance. Good luck everyone!

Year 3 Transition Update

User Rating:  / 1

Year 3 have settled in really well this week, getting to know their new surroundings, teachers and classrooms. They have already begun producing super work and their presentation is really good. As of next week, children will begin to work towards earning their pen license where teachers will be looking for beautiful cursive script, children who are beginning to join their letters and children who are making improvments with their letter formation. Good luck Year 3!
