Y3 Cake Sale Total!

Kingfisher Class did an amazing job bringing in cakes for our charitable cake sale last week and managed to raise an absolutely fantastic total of £116.36 for ‘Cots for Tots‘.

What a brilliant amount! Well done everyone and thank you parents for all your support.

Investigating Tessellation for Maths Week


The Kingfishers have had lots of fun with Grid Gremlins, Countdown, 2 D shape and other maths based activities – even in PE!

We hope you will enjoy investigating maths around your home. Please take some photos to share with us next week.


Spellings and Times Tables

We are moving from the 4 times table to the 8 times table – using the children’s existing knowledge of the 4 times table to support with the 8’s. E.g.  4,     8,    12,    16    etc

Outdoor Learning

We will be doing a Stone Age Outdoor Learning activity next week. Your child will need to have some warm clothes, hat, gloves, waterproofs and wellies in school next Thursday. The clothes will need to stay in school until Friday home time.

We hope you enjoy the week end.

Dear Parents,

The children have been making great strides with their learning over the last few weeks and truly enjoying our Stone Age topic.  The display pictured above is the pupils’ very own cave complete with cave drawings of Stone Age animals.

It has been great to see the children making serious progress with key skills such as column addition, spelling, punctuation and grammar and the use of descriptive language in story writing.

We are currently looking at instruction texts, such as recipes, ‘how to’ guides etc. If you are able to share any of these texts with your child in the next few days, please take some time to look at the choice of language that it used. E.g. the importance of special verbs and prepositions. This will help us with our writing up until half term.

Lastly, thanks for your contributions to today’s Harvest Festival Assembly and thanks to those of you who were also able to attend. All the children recited the poem clearly, loudly and with expression. They made us very proud!|


Spellings, Reading


Times Tables:  4 times table. TIPs remember the units pattern 4,8,2,6,0  and don’t forget to double the 2x table answer if stuck on a question. ALSO remember to try division questions such as 40 divided by 4 etc

Abacus on line games: I will try to allocate these from home, but they may not be available over the week-end. The expectation is that they will be played at least once each. Thanks.

Have a good week-end. We will see you next week.
