Lockdown Poem


Life at home has been hard

Inside all the time
Feeling low and missing friends

Everyone is in the same boat.


All around us is silence

Then slowly we all emerge


Hours tick by slowly

Overcoming boredom by keeping busy

Making sure everybody is ok

Eventually life will return to normal


By Miss Jennings


Week 9


So it is a week till half term. For this week's tasks I have included lots of outdoor learning opportunities and again looking at well being. I have found from talking to lots of you that it is getting harder to get children to sit and do traditional learning. To help I have tried to include fun but educational activities that everyone in the family can join in.


Continue to send me photos of your work. If anyone wants to catch up I am available for Zoom calls on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, just drop me a message.

Dragon Song

This half term the children have been learning a song all about friendship called 'The Dragon Song'. Here is a clip of us singing.

Christmas Adverts


Year 3 have finished the term by working in groups on a Christmas advert project. They all watched different Christmas adverts and evaluated how they were effective. They then worked together to come up with an idea for their own advert, planned different shots they would need to film and then finally filmed themselves. The last step was using iMovie to edit and put the different parts together. 

Some of them were very funny but all the children worked hard to put their adverts together.

Trip to Tring


On Tuesday 12th November Year 3 travelled to Tring Natural History Museum to learn about skeletons. The children explored 5 different skeletons, answering questions about what they could see and guessing what the skeletons were. They did very well and guessed most of them correctly. The trickiest skeleton was the squirrel which only 1 group got correct!


After the science workshop, the children then explored the whole museum completing questions about different animals skeletons answering questions about why we have skeletons and how different animals skeletons are different.


A great day had by all!


Year 3 visited Wilstead Bowls Club on Thursday 7th November in the afternoon. The children enjoyed learning how to play short mat bowls and had a mini competition in teams of 5. The children had so much fun we will be returning next Thursday 14th November to continue our tournament against each other. Many thanks to Wilstead Bowls Club members for giving up their time for us to go.
