The January Challenge 2023


We enjoyed a visit from Claire from the library today. We completed some activities from the January Challenge Champions pack. 


We thought about; what we are thankful for and what we see on the way to school. We also drew our favourite piece of clothing and asked our parents what their favourite childhood memory of clothing was. 


It was a lovely session!

Signing ‘White Christmas’ in BSL

Theatre by the Lake, Keswick


We had a lovely time watching 'The Borrowers,' at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick on Tuesday.  The actors and the set were amazing.  It was great fun clapping along with the music and trying to catch the bubbles.

Christmas Jumper Day - Aren't we all Jazzy!

Swimming Level Certificates - we received our certificates today.

Victorian Artefacts - we had a wonderful session today exploring various Victorian artefacts. We decided if they were a replica or real and had the chance to play with some of the games. We chose two to write about and analyse. It was wonderful to see items from the past!

Our beautiful poppies in Flanders Fields!

NOVEMBER- FRENCH: Some of Class 3 have been writing and talking in French about classroom objects.

Road Safety Week


We enjoyed a visit from PCSO Norman yesterday, who talked about Road Safety.  We found out lots of useful information about how to cross the road and how to behave in a vehicle.


We did a couple of activities in the classroom after too!

Science Week in Class 3



We are focusing on Forces and Magnets.  Today we found out that forces involve a ‘push’ or ‘pull’

We carried out a fair test to compare the movement of vehicles on different surfaces. What a great session!

Visit to Penrith Library - Helen Haraldsen (Author) Workshop


We went to Penrith Library on Friday 7th October, to meet Helen Haraldsen, who we have been working with since we won her lovely book 'A Tale of Two Shoes'


Helen talked about her book and then we wrote some free verse poetry or prose based on the environment and the two characters out of the book, Shane and Sheila shoe.


The children also had the opportunity to purchase Helen's books and were presented with them on the day.  


It was a lovely experience to meet a 'real author'  We are still continuing English lessons based on this book, which we have found very exciting.


Thanks to Claire and Vicky at the library for their continuing support!

National Poetry Day


Class 3 enjoyed National Poetry Day.  We listened to lots of poem to get us into the mood.  We also read some 'Pocket Poems' outside with a partner.  They were written by famous poets like, R.L. Stevenson and Enid Blyton.  


We then wrote our own descriptive poetry about Autumn using the format; adjective, noun, verb and adverb.  It was tricky but we got there, with lots of different versions!
