We examined the hidden images in the ‘Anthony Browne’ books and made our own replicas of our favourite front covers. Aren’t they fantastic?!

We are so proud of our Year 3 displays!

India and Summer visited their little brother and sister in Nursery, Hunter and Skye. What a lovely time we had!

We celebrated ‘World Book Day’ in spectacular style!

We enjoyed a super lesson at the beginning of our topic on ‘Listening and Sharing’. We re-enacted the old fable ‘Stone Soup’ to try to emphasise the importance of listening and sharing. Please visit Year 3 to see a display of evidence of our learning from that lesson! We are all very proud!

Some highlights of our Year 3 assembly which which was all about ‘Yearly Celebrations’.

Mrs Hall took some children on a very special trip to visit India whilst she was still in Alder Hey Hospital. What a beautiful and fun packed day we had. The smile, giggles and excitement proved that India is such a well loved member of our class and we can’t wait for her return to Year 3!

Mrs Hall and Mrs Stalker loved visiting India in Alder Hey Hospital after her operation. It was the highlight of our half term break wasn’t it Mrs Stalker! We love India and can’t wait for her return to Year 3!

We really enjoy our Collective Worship sessions because it allows us the opportunity to reflect, listen, share and go forth with our understanding.

We achieved forty successful ‘Secret Students’ and achieved our ‘Day of Fun’ as our reward!

During DT Week, we designed and made our own Stone Age tools. Aren’t they brilliant!

We made fantastic ‘Sgraffitto Plates’ of Stone Age animals during our autumn term art week. They were in the style of the cave paintings from that time and we think they look superb. We hope you do too!

We became experts on the Stone Age during our visit to Liverpool Museum.

We always try to be kind friends to one another and our regular assemblies from ‘Bully Busters’ help us to remember how to be a ‘kind friend’. Thank you Bully Busters!

We love enhancing our mathematical skills through playing games!

Our School Council Representatives for this year are Ellis Kershaw and Jodie Hunter!

We've all settled in so well!
