PE- Gymnastics Balancing Moves

This week we have started our new learning about fractions in maths. Today we have been using practical resources to help us understand that finding fractions relates to division and we can use the method of grouping to help us visualise this.

Welcome back to Spring Term! We have a lot going on this term in Class Three so please have a look at our learning overview below to see what we have planned! 
Picture 1
We had a busy DT week at the end of term where we designed and created bags which would be suitable for a rainforest explorer in the Amazon. We used a variety of stitches and skills to sew our bags and we produced some FANTASTIC examples! Have a look at our gallery below to see what we made!

Samba Group Performances

In music this week, we have worked in our team point groups to individually compose a short piece of samba music. Please watch and listen to our group performances and let us know what you think!

Visit from Reverend Roland

Visit from Reverend Roland 1
Visit from Reverend Roland 2

We were very lucky to have a visit from Reverend Roland this Friday on the 11th October! Our topic in RE this term is 'Called Upon By God' and we have been looking at people who have felt a calling from God. We have so far explored Moses and Abraham, prophets from the Old Testament. We have also looked at Mother Teresa who did wonderful things in her life by helping so many people in need. This week, we have been thinking and learning about members of the clergy who have also felt called upon by God.


We prepare questions for Reverend Roland so we could find out more information bout how he was called, what happened and how he felt about it. We learnt a lot and are very grateful for his visit to Class 3!

Class 3 have taken brilliantly to their Samba lessons with the Lancashire Music Service so far this term! They have been exploring a range of traditional instruments and are understanding how to use 'call and response' following the lead of the main instrument. Keep updated with our progress by checking back soon for an update!


Welcome back to our new school year! We are starting this first half term with our topic of 'Amazon Adventure' and the children have already made a great start to their learning.

Today we began our new ‘Up and Active’ PE sessions and we had a really great time! We started by learning about why physical activity was important for our bodies and we organised different activities into categories. After that, we warmed up with the Pirate Ship activity and then we played a game of Cat and Mouse where the aim wasn’t to be the winner but to engage in physical activity so our hearts were beating quickly and we were feeling out of breath!

Welcome to Class Three!


Our class teacher is Miss Birch and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Fielding.

In our class we have 32 children, 20 year 3 and 12 year 4.

This year, we will also be taught for RE and Computing by Mrs Oddie every Thursday morning. Please visit our class page throughout the year to see updates and pictures of exciting things we have been doing in class!

We had a fabulous time on Thursday 25th April when we visited Mellor Church to take part in the 'Easter Experience'. We visited different stations which helped us learn and reflect on the events of Holy Week. Class Three would like to say a HUGE thank you to everybody who helped organised this brilliant afternoon, we loved taking part in the activities! Please have a look at our photographs to see what we got up to.

To end our topic 'Food, Glorious Food!' we baked our own hot cross buns and we enjoyed devouring them, as you can see! We have been learning all about food around the world and as part of our DT learning, we tasted and evaluated current products from supermarkets to help us design and create a recipe to make our own bun. We were able to apply our maths skills of measuring to make sure we followed our recipe accurately!

We had a great morning on Friday when Victoria Barry came to visit school. We really enjoyed listening to her story called ‘Darkmoor’. It was very exciting to have another author visit us in school to celebrate World Book Week. We have been inspired for our own story writing and it has been interesting to find out about the life of a real author! 

World Book Day

Music Lessons


We have been doing so well with our music lessons that we have now moved on to writing our own music and creating patterns. Have a look at our note formation!

We really enjoy sharing our homework each week with other children in the class. We have been enjoying giving feedback and discussing each other's ideas.


Our homework always links to our topic theme and this week we had to design and create a menu using expanded noun phrases. We watched an M&S food advert before we started which gave us lots of ideas and inspiration for our own menu!

We have been monitoring the effects that different liquids have on the shell of an egg. In our experiment, the egg shell represented the enamel of our teeth and we were investigating how liquids with varying amounts of sugar would change the egg. Have a look at the photographs to see what happened at the end of the experiment!


We have definitely enjoyed learning about teeth this term and how important it is to look after them.

This week, our School Council asked each class in the school to spend a morning limiting our resources and sitting in rows to imagine how school life can be around the world, particularly in countries where they don't have the luxuries that we have and quite often take for granted.


We had to share our pencils, we couldn't use our interactive whiteboard and our usual equipment was very limited. Although it was difficult, it made us realise how fortunate we are in our school and we also thought of ways we could help those in need.


We also got some brilliant collaborative work out of it!

Happy New Year!


Welcome back to our new school term and the start of 2019. We hope you have all had a lovely break. To see what learning will be taking place in Class 3 this term, please have a look at our learning overview below as well as our new homework grid for the first half of the spring term. This term, we also have an exciting new lesson where we will be learning yoga. This lesson will take place every Tuesday so please make sure you have a pair of jogging bottoms, shorts or gym leggings on this day.

Remembrance Garden


This week at school, we have enjoyed creating our own special remembrance garden in the school playground to honour those who died in WW1. We have painted pebbles to display in the area and we have dedicated a special bench to the fallen soldiers of the war. We are going to use this area as a place to think, remember and reflect.
