We have a wonderful team of staff, who are excited for the year ahead: Mrs Blissett (Head of Year) Miss Oakenfull (Deputy Head) Miss Hanks (Class Teacher) and Mrs Vega (HLTA). We also are lucky to have 3 wonderful teaching assistants: Mrs Spendlove, Mrs Oslar and Miss Miller. The children also have PE led by Mr Gray,  RE with Miss Hartney and Music with Mrs Denny.

The children have transitioned well into Year 3 and are excited to be in their new school, showing a thirst for learning and a determination to be the best that they can be. We are loving seeing all their happy faces every day.

We have already been busy in Year 3 and we have read a fantastic book called ‘Jack and the Baked Beanstalk.’ The children created some baked bean art based upon the work of Andy Warhol. Using some amazing adjectives, similes and adverbs, they all wrote a very descriptive character description about their own giant that they created. In maths they have been developing their understanding of the number system and they enjoyed a practical lesson using lots of different resources to develop their understanding of place value.

We are looking forward to starting our new topic called scrumdiddlyumptious, where the children will be designing, creating and eating their own chocolate!

We have been busy doing our star tests for the accelerated reading programme and the children are working hard to read at home and win the reading trophy for their class.

Both staff and children are looking forward to the wonderful learning experiences that await us in the coming weeks and months.
