P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and could take place indoors or outdoors, so it essential that your child comes prepared with the correct kit.


As part of our healthy school approach we would encourage  all children to bring a water bottle so they can have access to a drink of water during the day. This will allow them to keep hydrated, which will have a positive impact on their concentration and stamina.

Homework in Year 3

Children will be given a piece of maths homework each week. This will be put into their red homework books to be completed.  

They will also be given spellings to learn for a test on Wednesday.  The spellings can be found in the small red book. We would also like the children to write a sentence in their homework book using their weekly words. We expect the children to write a long sentence that demonstrates interesting vocabulary choices and the use of grammar. Presentation is also important and we are encouraging the children to use joins.

Many thanks

Mrs Glass

We had the most amazing wow day learning about birds of prey from Hawkeye Falconry. We saw a spectacled owl from Brazil, a tiger striped owl from Peru, a great grey owl from Canada and barn owls. One of the barn owls was a very rare melanisitic owl. We also saw a kestrel and peregrine falcon. We held the birds and watched them fly around the hall.

During the afternoon we looked at owl pellets and in pairs dissected them. Lots of us were a little unsure about looking, but we got more and more excited as we found different bones, fur and feathers.

It's time to take a walk on the wild side and jump aboard the food chain! Find out who is coming to visit... is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it?

Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey.

Use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark! What incredible species can you imagine?

We investigated forces in action in Coronation Street park. We worked out if the equipment used the force of push, pull, gravity or friction.

Mighty Metals


This term, you are going to be an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course!)

We are going to explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials....  you will test and trial, build and move the different materials.

We will investigate which force is at play as you slide down a slide or swing on a swing. You will be able to explain why magnets repel and attract.

If you were a metal which one would you be? Gold - a shimmering, precious and costly mineral Or steel, the strong and useful alloy? Maybe you would choose iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust!


We will meet Hogarth the Iron Man's companion. The Iron Man wants a friend.... Can you build him one?

             CLASS CHALLENGE!!!!animated-dalmatian-image-0042


We would like you to make a Dalmatian!!! Don't panic we would like them in by half term!

Look at pictures, cartoons and photographs of Dalmatians and their puppies to understand their body shape and recognisable features, such as ears, muzzle and tail. Use materials such as wire, newspaper, masking tape, inflated balloons or junk to create the shape of a Dalmatian. Layer their Dalmatian’s body with tissue and glue, plaster strips or papier mache. Once dry paint the Dalmatian white and add black spots and facial features. Have Fun!

Look at our fabulous dalmatians!

We dressed as superheroes and villains and ate lots of cake to raise money for Macmillan and Luca's charity.

Well done Ellie! The first member of Barn Owls to be awarded a pen licence!

Heroes and Villains

It’s time for the class to meet one of the world’s most evil women – the unashamedly wicked, Cruella De Vil. Watch how she snaps and sneers, heckles and jeers, what a villainous villain she is! Listen to Cruella’s terrible tales of Dalmatian entrapment – what gruesome and wicked desires she has! Ask questions to interrogate her. How is she planning to get hold of those cute Dalmatians and – if you can bear it – what she wants to do with them. The children will also be learning about Bonnie and Clyde, fairy tale villains and heroes and modern day heroes!
