Spring 2 Week 4- The Edible Garden

Star of the week: Obinna and Yvette

In Class 3 we are learning where and how a variety of ingredients are grown. We have started by discussing a range of herbs such as Chives, Parsley, Basil, Rosemary and Mint. Most of Class 3 identified that they had already tasted these in a range of their favourite dishes, as they add lots of flavour. Well done Class 3, excellent work!



Spring 2 Week 3- Bikeability

Star of the week: Henry and Maidie

Over the past couple of days, Class 3 have practised their cycling skills with the help of two instructors from Cycle Confident. All of Class 3 had lots of fun whilst refining their skills on a bicycle. They were taught how to stay safe on their bikes, and how to manoeuvre confidently around the Key Stage 2 playground. Excellent work Class 3!

Spring 2 Week 2- Book Week

Star of the week: Anashe and Sebastian


At the beginning of the week, Class 3 read a book about Fatima Al- Fihri. Fatima was an inspirational woman, and she founded the world’s first university. With this in mind, Class 3 have been writing a letter to a university. The aim is to persuade the admissions team to let them attend the university to study their favourite subject.  After writing their first draft, Class 3 then shared their work with Class 4.

In addition to this, Class 3 have also enjoyed a range of other new books this week – both fiction and non-fiction. Here are some photos of our ‘Book Week’ so far.


Spring 2 Week 1- Science Museum

Star of the week: All of Class 3

Yesterday, Class 3 visited the Science Museum to explore, and to learn lots of scientific information. Firstly, we watched a special science show and saw some amazing experiments. Then, we explored the Wonderlab! As Class 3 were exploring, they were asked to focus on anything that involved forces and magnets as that is our new topic. Class 3, what did you find out about forces and magnets?



Spring 1 Week 5- History Day

Star of the week: Beatrice and Stanley

For history day, Class 3 began their learning journey on… the Romans! Our day began by writing and reading Roman numerals. After our special history assembly, we then learnt about Roman soldiers and Roman Gods and Goddesses. During our P.E. lesson, we practised hoop rolling (an ancient tradition that carried on for centuries) and created an amphitheatre shape out of cones. The spectators (Class 3) stood around the amphitheatre and cheered on their team (either blue or red) whilst they battled to the death!

Class 3’s Candlemas Service

Class 3 led their first ever service at Southwark Cathedral today. All of Class 3 read  clearly, and their reflections and prayers were extremely thoughtful. Thank you Class 3 for telling us all about Candlemas, and sharing with us your thoughts about Jesus being presented in the temple as the light of the world.  Here are some photos of them in action!


Spring 1 Week 3-Marvellous Money

Star of the week: Luca and Beatrice

Yesterday, Class 3 started learning about money. They had to recognise the value of all the notes and coins, as well as add them together to create a total. After solving lots of money problems on their whiteboards, and going shopping, Class 3 worked really hard on their independent task. Most of the class even completed the ‘challenge’ questions. Well done, Class 3!

Next week, Class 3 will be calculating the amount of change people need to receive after they’ve purchased items from the shop.


Spring 1 Week 2- Father David’s Visit

Star of the week: Fisayo and Joshua

Class 3 are currently preparing to lead their first service at Southwark Cathedral. Our preparations began with an informative visit from the lovely Father David. After sharing a passage from Luke Chapter 2, Father David helped Class 3 to understand what Candlemas is and why it is important to Christians. Using their new knowledge and understanding, Class 3 began to reflect on what Candlemas means to them. We will share these reflections with you in a couple of weeks.

Next week in R.E, Class 3 will be continuing with their new topic on Hindu beliefs, teachings and symbols. We will be focusing on the Bhagavad Gita which is part of the Mahabharata.

Spring 1 Week 1- Basketball

Star of the week: Helena and Luca

During our P.E. lesson this week, we started practising our Basketball skills. Firstly, we completed a throwing and catching challenge which required us to focus on not dropping the ball! Then, we moved on to dribbling the ball by bouncing it with our hands. All of Class 3 worked really hard on all of these skills. Well done, Class 3!

Next week, we will begin to work on our shooting skills.
