English lesson, Friday 12th January 2018

We worked with our partners to describe the setting of our adventure story. We had to use our imaginations!

Science lesson, Tuesday 9th January 2018

We are learning about Forces & Magnets. We discovered what was magnetic in our classroom and then measured the friction of different surfaces using toy cars borrowed from Reception - thank you, Mrs Walsh!

Autumn Term 2017

Ukulele Lesson, Friday 15th December 2017

We had the most wonderful ukulele lesson with Mr Mercer on Christmas Jumper Day. What a treat! We recapped on the skills we had learnt in Year 2 and then played along to some Christmas classics!

Watch us play along!

Year 3 visit to Armley Mill, 7th December 2017

Yesterday, our class visited Armley Mill. We went there because we have been looking into the past and learning all about the Victorians.

We were greeted by a man called Tom who was to be our Victorian teacher. We had to call him ‘Master’.

He was really strict but by the end of the lesson we understood what it was like to be a Victorian child going to school.

Afterwards, we had our lunch and then visited the Mill Owner’s cottage. It was like stepping back in time! We discussed what types of jobs Victorian children would have had such as; cleaning the range, collecting water, knitting, cooking food and cleaning the home.

As you can see from our photos below, we had an amazing time! Getting dressed up certainly helped us get into the role of Victorian children.
