Year three science afternoon

Year three had lots of fun today bringing science into the classroom – we made slime, built bridges, used magnets, experimented with colour as well as reflecting and refracting light. The children explored brilliantly with curiosity and questions.

Cross-country fun run

We were very proud to host the final Tewkesbury Cross-country fun run and presentation. We had lots of fun with some crazy outfits. The children from all schools have competed enthusiastically and energetically through the wind and rain this year. Well done to all who have competed.

Year Three host Rousseau exhibition

Year threes excelled themselves this week by producing pieces of art in the style of
Henri Rousseau. The pieces were exhibited in the school hall, attracting a large
gathering of parents during the afternoon. The idea behind the exhibit was to lure the burglar ,who had stolen an original Rousseau painting, back to school in order to capture him in the act of stealing another one! We are pleased to report that the plan was a success and the culprit is now being dealt with by the police.

Year 3 January news

When we got back from our brilliant Christmas holiday it was very surprising because we had our school Christmas dinner in January! Mr Stagg, our new teacher, taught us for the morning and Mrs Yeomans taught us for the afternoon. We wrote down what we wanted to find out about the Tudors and what we already know.

Thursday morning we had Open the Book assembly. We learnt about homophones during Literacy. Ask us about to, too and two or son and sun! We had an exciting afternoon learning about the different types of skeleton in animals and humans.

Friday Literacy lesson was very fun because we had to find 10 QR codes. Each gave us a picture which we used to design our own adventure story.
