Class 3

Due to the hot weather could you please apply sun cream before school and ensure that children have a water bottle with them.  In addition, could they also bring a sun hat to wear at break and lunch times as they will be going outside.  We will remind them to stay in the shade and not run around as much as normal.  Due to this we will be removing the footballs while the temperature is especially high. 

Many thanks

Welcome back to Term 6!!

As always this is a very busy term for us.  The children will be experiencing a Tudor Day and class trip (Letters to follow shortly), along with things like Sports Day.

Welcome to Class 3!

Welcome back to Term 5


Mrs Smith is now back from maternity leave and has really enjoyed her first proper week with the class. She will be teaching on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Miss Morgan will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. Mrs Lee will cover PPA time on Wednesday afternoons.


We are really excited about our new topic for Terms 5 and 6 - When Henry came to stay. It is a history based topic where we will learn about Henry 8th and the Tudors, linking into our local Thornbury history when Henry visited Thornbury Castle. Hopefully, we will make it across to the castle at some point over the summer term.


We will be having PE coaching on a Tuesday afternoon during Term 5 and we will be working on our Athletics skills.


Our Class Assembly will be on Wednesday 14th June at 9am where Year 3 will be sharing what they have been learning about this year. We hope lots of parents, grandparents and carers will be able to make it!

If any parents want to come and meet me, I will be out on the playground after school every day so please come and say hi! I look forward to meeting you all,

Mrs Smith.



Welcome back to Term 4.  We are continuing to learn about our topic Extreme Earth. 


Take a look at our pictures added below from Term 3.


Our current PE day is a Wednesday but we would expect that children have PE kits in school at all time in case things change.


Mrs Smith will be returning from maternity leave at the end of Term 4.  She is looking forward to spending some days in school prior to this to get to know the class.

Maths open afternoon- Calculation

Pupils in Year 3 bring home weekly spellings which focus on the spelling rules and patterns in the National Curriculum. 

In addition, the NC includes a word list for each of the phases.  From the Year 3/4 words the easier words have been selected and made into 3 word lists which the pupils need to be able to spell by the end of the year, both in tests and in their everyday writing.  The majority of pupils have been given a sheet with the lists on to begin learning list 1 at home.  Please encourage them to do this in a variety of ways. 

Thank you

Maths explorers!

Yesterday we spent our maths lesson searching the school to find right angles!  Between us we found hundreds inside and outside in the school grounds. 

We have also learnt that angles which are smaller than right angles are called Acute and those which are bigger (but smaller than 180 degrees) are called Obtuse. 

Dogs Trust

Today we had a visit from the Dogs Trust.  She came to speak to us about how dogs can help us.  We linked it to our topic of Extreme Earth by thinking about how dogs can help in search and rescue situations in the mountains and after natural disasters.  We learnt about how dogs can help humans in other ways.  We had a great time. 

We created animals using natural materials to write about.

Look at our World Book Day potato characters.

Can you guess who we have made?

The Toothpaste Challenge


In term 1 we completed the Toothpaste Challenge. 

First the children worked in groups to squeeze all of the toothpaste from the tube.  That was the easy bit!

Next they had to work together to try to get all of the toothpaste back into the tube.


By completing this activity we learnt that words which are said can never be taken back even if we say sorry.  So we have to be careful what we say.
