Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red).

Term 4 Highlights

 Our fourth term in Year 3 has been amazing!! 


In English we have been looking at the Ancient Egyptians and learning lots of interesting facts. We have written our own newspaper reports based around Howard Carter discovering Tutankhamun's  tomb and have written a formal letter asking for permission to build a pyramid!


Our production of Sherlock and Cinders was a huge success! Everyone had lots of fun participating in the performance and put on an incredible show. 


Next term will be looking at a new fiction text called 'Varjack paw' and basing our writing around this story. We will be moving onto looking at volcanoes, earthquakes and rivers in Geography. In Maths, we will be focusing on pictograms and fractions as we move towards the end of the year.


We look forward to another brilliant term!
