Y3 Swimming Sessions

Dear families,  

I am writing to inform you that children in Year 3 will be starting swimming lessons as part of their PE curriculum on Tuesday 19th February 2024. Pupils will attend school as normal on Tuesdays and will travel, supervised by school staff, via coach to the Ponds Forge Leisure Centre each week. The swimming sessions will run for 17 weeks until Tuesday 9th July 2024 and will be taught by qualified swimming instructors. The sessions are fully funded by school, and as they are part of the curriculum, all children are expected to participate.  

For each lesson your child will need to come to school dressed in their swimwear (underneath their school uniform). 

They will also need to bring the following: 

  • A towel 

  • A waterproof bag 

  • A change of underwear 

Please ensure you follow the guidance below:

Book Blanket

📚📚 Book Blanket 📚📚

Year three, have been loving our reading for pleasure activities. A precious time where children get to explore books and enjoy their love of reading. Last week, we used a book blanket to help us explore the wonderful books in our class. A book blanket is a large spread of books placed all around an inviting reading space. Such as our classrooms. What books do you enjoy reading?

Twisted Tales

Year 3 are writing twisted tales. To help them generate ideas they were given special boxes with random objects relating to a fairytales. This inspired us to tell the tale from a different viewpoint.

Ancient Egypt

Year 3 are learning about Ancient Egypt, today they were thinking like historians and digging for artefacts. Artefacts are human-made objects from a time in history. They are primary sources of evidence. We can use them to ask and answer questions about the past. In this dig we found some ancient gods and goddesses.

Edith Holden

Year 3 have been learning about Edith Holden. Today we practiced some of the techniques Edith Holden used in her art. Edith Holden used three main techniques to add texture, clarity and dimension to her drawings. She used cross hatching, line drawing and shading.
