Year 3 had great fun learning about the layers of the earth through the use of play dough. After making the many layers, we cut the earth models open to see the layers and label them.

Summer 2


Welcome back, I hope you all had a lovely half term! I cannot believe it is the final term, time has flown by!  We have a busy final term ahead! Due to a short half term last term, we will continue our work on looking closely at the world’s natural disaster such as volcanoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, and the process of the water cycle.  Following this, our topic will focus on “doctor, doctor”, which will look in detail about the human digestive system, nutrition, and cooking lots of delicious treats! In English, we will be beginning a new Talk for Writing cycle and focusing on newspaper reports, specifically related to the world’s past historic natural disasters, as our genre of text in line with our whole class reading text “The Firework Maker’s daughter”. In maths, we will continue to focus on angles and shape, before moving onto measurement.


Again, if you have any questions, or would like to know how your child is getting on in terms of their learning, feel free to come and chat to me at the beginning, or end of the day 😊


Many thanks,

Miss Bass

Summer 1


I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday and ate as much chocolate and Easter Eggs as I did! 


This term, the children will be covering the topic ‘Angry Earth’ where we will be exploring the wonders of volcanoes, tsunamis, earthquakes and the water cycle.  Through this topic, we will be reading the fantastic book ‘The Firework Maker’s daughter’ in Guided Reading and English.  Linking into both of those fields, we will be carrying out several Science investigations related to volcano eruptions, and how magnets attract and repel each other, and various materials.  


Please remember to bring your PE kits for PE every Tuesday and Thursday. 

Homework is to now be handed in on Thursday in time for new homework to be given out on Fridays.  If needed, Reading books will be able to be changed every Thursday. 


If you have any questions, or would like to talk to me about your child’s learning, feel free to come and talk to me before school, or at the end of the day 😊

Well done to Key Stage 2, who bravely performed some wonderful music pieces to the parents and rest of the school.

Guitar concert

We had a fantastic first residential trip to Sherwood Forest.  We spent a lovely couple of days imagining the life of an Outlaw, searching the forest for Robin Hood and Little John.  We climbed the highest trees and hid from the dangerous Sheriff of Nottingham, visited the historical Major Oak, and built den to protect the Merry men from Storm Gareth’s fierce high winds.

Spring Term

Welcome back! I hope you all had  a lovely half term! smiley


This term, our topic is Plants, and with this wonderful weather we are having, looks like the perfect time for it! In this topic, we will be doing lots of Science investigations, where we will be looking at what plants need in order to live and grow, how water is  transported through plants and the functions of differing parts of flowering plants.  We will also be spending time researching Robin Hood and his adventures in Sherwood Forest, as we build up to our exciting residential trip! This will involve using maps to plan our route from Tickhill to Sherwood, researching what Sherwood has to offer, and Reading the wonderful 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' to find out what mischief Robin Hood and his merry men got up to.

Thank you for attending our school creative homework show.  Year 3 proudly showed off their brilliant creative homework pieces which were all in relation to our current topic; the Stone Age.  This ranged from beautifully hand-carved hunting weapons and well designed Stone Ages board games, to a fantastic (and tasty!) model of Stonehenge made from Bourbon biscuits!

Year 3 had a fantastic time learning and showing off their fabulous dance moves at Sir Thomas Wharton Academy alongside many other primary schools.  They thoroughly enjoyed learning and performing various styles of dance including Michael Jackson dancing, street dancing and contemporary dancing.

A cracking Christingle!
