Stone Soup

In RE today we have been looking at the story, 'Stone Soup,' and the children would like to have a go at making their own soup. Therefore, on Thursday if as many children as possible could bring in one vegetable we will have a go at making our soup,

It really is a great example of sharing.

Year 3 visited Doncaster Museum as part of their topic on Ancient Egypt. They impressed the guides, Ashleigh and Sam, with their prior knowledge and learned a great deal more through their workshop entitled,'What no mummy?'

Welcome to Year 3  2019/2020

I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two days with Year 3 and am sure we will have a super year ahead of us. Please check the website regularly for updates on what we have been doing and also for reminders about homework and so on.


The welcome letter which was sent home today is attached.






We collected our medals from Nicky at the Lovell building site.


We are very proud of our artistic achievements!


6.6.19 We are so proud of our artwork that we produced for Lovell's housing estate. We chose the theme of water birds actually seen at Lakeside because the new houses are overlooking the lake. Fingers crossed we will now win the National Competition!

5.6.19 Our EAL pupils from years 3 to 6 are taking part in a four week drama workshop with Sara from CAST. In week one we did activities involving physical drama, speaking drama and oral presentations.

Years 1,2 and 3 visited CAST and enjoyed the production of Puss in Boots by the Northern Ballet. The pupils loved listening to the live orchestra and of course the graceful ballet and the story telling of Puss in Boots through dance.

20.5.19 To support our summer term project on sculpture, we enjoyed a fantasic day at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We spent the day working with an artist and created our own group sculptures.

Today 15th May 2019, Year 3 were joined by the Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones, Katie, Tom and Richard from Green Energy to take part in a litter picking exercise as part of our Topic work. As you can see we picked up lots of litter from around the outskirts of our school and the local park, finding that our local bins are full too.

29.3.19 As part of our RE topic work we walked to St Peter's church and we prayed the Stations of the Cross with Father Darren. Father connected each of the the stations to modern life and our prayers were linked with this.

We are currently learning Bollywood style dance and loving it! We greatly impressed our teachers with our skills and enthusiasm

As part of our RE topic about the Eucharist, Father Darren showed us how he sets up the altar and what the symbolism is behind all the items used on the altar, during Mass.

Stop the Drop!

We did a litter pick around the school grounds. Just look at the amount of litter bags we filled from our school ground in half an hour!

Stop the Drop!

We have been working with Katie from Green Energy again. We looked at the problems of litter and we were amazed at the number of years it takes for litter to break down for examples, a nappy takes five hundred years to degrade and a plastic bottle NEVER!

6.2.19 We enjoyed an afternoon workshop with Katie from Green Energy. We did literacy work around the book 'Duffy the Sea Turtle' and we made Sea Turtles by recycling our plastic bottles.

As part of our project work this term, Year 3 took part in a workshop with Katie from 'Green Energy'. We learnt all about recycling our aluminium cans. We looked at the process of recycling aluminium cans and we made musical instruments from our drinks cans. We have used the musical shakers in our music lessons.

25.1.19 In our RE topic, we are learning about the Church's liturgical year. Father Darren came into class and spoke to us about the Church's year. He taught us about the different coloured vestments a priest wears.

24.1.19 As part of our topic on sustainability and conservation, Erica from the charity 'Water Aid' spoke to us about the work they do in underdeveloped countries in order to provide people with clean water. It made us realise how lucky we are to be able to turn on our taps and flush our toilets.

Music... Year 3 have really enjoyed their weekly music lessons with the music teacher Mre Fitzpatrick. They studied Stavinsky's Ballet music, 'The Firebird.' We have some very talented musicians in Year 3 and all the children really enjoy playing the percussion instruments.

Home Learning ...Year 3 have completed three home learning tasks throughout the Autumn term 2018. The tasks have related to our Explore history project about the Victorians. The children have produced some brilliant work that is creative and extremely interesting to read. Their research has really enhanced and enriched their understanding and knowledge of the Victorian period.

18.12.18 We have a talented group of musicians in year 3. We were treated to a rendition of the Christmas Carol 'Silent Night.' They are super guitar players! We really enjoyed singing along with them.

On Wednesday the 21st November, the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue came to talk to us about fire safety. We learnt how to stay safe and what to do if we need help.

On Monday 19th November, we enjoyed a workshop witht he author Stephen Pass. He told us all about how he got the inspiration to write his book, 'Madge the Mermaid' and all about the process involved writing and producing his book.

On Tuesday 23rd October, as part of our topic work on the Victorians and the growth of the railways, we enjoyed a day at the National Rail Museum in York.




   On Tuesday 25th September we enjoyed an evening at the theatre
