Christmas Angel Design

User Rating:  / 0


Holy Trinity Church has launched an exciting Christmas art project to try to fill their church with lots of beautiful angels.

If you would like to take part you can print the  angel template from the attached link (or see Mrs Edwards in school for a copy) and decorate it anyway you please. There is a prize for the best designed angel.

Angels can be given in directly to the Chursch before 7th December or can be handed to Mrs Edwards in school by Wednesday 6th December.

You will then be able to view the angels in the church December 11th, 13th and 15th between 5pm and 7pm.

Good Luck and get creative!

Extreme Weather

User Rating:  / 2

Over the last two weeks Year three have started to look at extreme weathers. We have begun by learning all about biomes. We now know the world is divided into large natural areas. Places like desert and rainforests are biomes. Each biome is known for certain kinds of plants and animals. In addition to this, we’ve started to investigate weather and climate by looking at the average temperatures of the U.k. compared to counties like Brazil. We know the Brazil has a much hotter climate than England because it is closer to the equator and we know that the U.K is located in the Northen Hemisphere and that is why we experience seasons.

This week in Year Three we have been learning all about Diwali. We have used our knowledge of information texts to research about the festival and then to use this research to write a non-chronological report. We had to remember to write in the present tense, use sub-headings and to use specialist vocabulary.

We found out lots of interesting information like:

It is the festival of light

It is dependent on the lunisolar calendar

It lasts three -five days

Gift are given to friends and family

Digestive System

This week Year Three have been learning all about the digestive system. We have had lots of fun recreating it using bread, milk, coke, tights and a potato masher! The children were understanding what happens to food once we've eaten it and where it goes in our bodies. They were using words like oesophagus, small intensive and large intestine.


Art in a Day

User Rating:  / 1

Year 3 have made a fantastic start to their new topic 'Ancient Greece'. We enjoyed learning all about Greek art, in particular, 3d sculpture from the period and investigated Greek pots and their design. The children learnt that the Greek's were responsible for the creation of the pottery wheel which allowed them to created vases and containers that were much more elaborate than previous designs. The children in Year 3 created their own Greek vases by first creating a thumb pot out of clay and learnt how to join other clay elements such as handles and rims. The pots have been really succesful and the children are now decorating them in the same colour palette used by the Greeks.

What a year!

We can’t believe that this academic year is going to an end! Year Three have had so much fun. They have had the opportunity to go on three school trips, go back in time with Professor McGinty and go to Bishop Vesey Grammar School for P.E. lessons!

Last week, the children had their transition day with their new teachers, in their new classes and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. They came back to Year Three looking way too grown up!

Mr Worth, Mrs Horne and myself would like to take this chance to say a huge good luck to every single child in the year group! We wish you a very successfully journey in the future and we thank you for all of your hard work across the year.



Health Week Fun!

User Rating:  / 0

Across school children have been celebrating health week. In Year Three, we have focused on Healthy Eating. Over the week we took part in lots of activities linked to this topic. We have been lucky enough to chat to Ruth and Cath, in the school kitchens, to talk about the healthy meals they makes and discussed the hygiene of the food they prepare. In addition to this, we got to visit the life caravan and talk about having a healthy mind with Harrold the Giraffe. Finally, some of our maths lesson we also linked to health week, we got to design health gardens with vegetable patching and work out the perimeter of each section.

This week in literacy year three have been gaining an understanding of the water cycle. This has involved children undertaking their own research and then using role play to act out the water cycle process. Next week children will apply their understanding to write an explanation text. They will be using lots of time openers and causal conjunctions in their writing. Here are some pictures of their performances.

Practical Maths

Year Three have dusted off the practical equipment in maths this week! They have been using base ten to show their deeper understanding of division before they moving onto the bus stop method. The children worked hard to explain their answers and prove whether Captain Conjecture was correct.



Step back in time

User Rating:  / 1
This week Year Three took a step back in time when they visited the Black Country Museum. This was linked to our topic "Blast From The Past". We were lead through the museum by three very knowledgeable tour guides, they explained all about what like was like in Britain in the past. We got to visit a school, the mines and lots of houses and shops. The guides told us lots of facts and lots of interesting information. This will help us when we are doing our topic lessons this half term. It was a brilliant school trip were we all learnt lots.

Birmingham Royal Ballet Visit

Speight Ballet resize

Our children from Year 1 and Year 3 have been fortunate enough to work with visiting members of the Birmingham Royal Ballet in four different dance workshops.

Visiting Dance Artist Jenny Murphy and Pianist Andrew Kristy lead the sessions based on the company's current production of 'Coppelia'. The children found out all about the characters from the ballet and were able to have a go at taking on the role of the clockwork doll, magician and old man. The pupils created their own performances to share at the end of the workshop.

Mrs Duckers, Mrs Slassor, Mrs Charles, Mrs Edwards and Mr Worth all enjoyed participating in the workshops with several members of staff taking the opportunity to try on a beautiful costume from the company's production of 'Sleeping Beauty'!
