It has already been very busy in Year 3 this term. Since we returned to school we have begun learning about the Stone Age and had a fantastic time when a Stone Age Man, Flint, visited us to teach us more on Stone Age Day. Our Art and Forest School are both linked to our History topic too and we have been busy learning how to build a fire and use natural materials to create Cave Art.  In English, we have have been studying the hilarious book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' and are preparing to write our own set of instructions. During our Maths lessons we have been demonstrating our improving knowledge of multiplictation and division and have enjoyed playing board games to help us improve our times tables. Keep looking back for photos of our learning this term.

In the event of school closure

On rare occasions, it may be necessary to close the school. This may be due to adverse weather conditions or perhaps when essential school services cannot be provided –e.g. heating, plumbing or water.  

Please refer to the School’s Bad Weather Policy on our website for information regarding how we communicate a school closure. 

Class teachers will then initiate home school learning activities, and these will be available to children by 10am of the same morning.
