Great Plastic Pick Up

The children collected lots of rubbish around the school grounds as part of the Great Plastic Pick Up we were amazed!

Holdenby House

What a fantastic day year 3 and 4 had at Holdenby House – the children looked fantastic all dressed up. They really enjoyed experiencing life as a Victorian child and all earned their place in the household. Ask your child what their job roles were and I am sure they will tell you lots about the day.


During a literacy lesson the children went and did a litter pick around the school grounds. During their litter pick the children came across a box full of sparkling jewels, we discussed how they could of ended up there. These jewels play an important role in our literacy writing over the next few weeks.

Sikh Visit to Gurdwara

Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic visit to the Gurdwara in Northampton this morning, they have learnt a lot about Sikhism and they religion. A big thank you to Mr Singh who has opened our eyes to the religion of Sikhism as part of our India topic.

Science – Skeletons and Bones

In Science, children have been learning about our skeletons and bones. Children annotated life size skeletons with the scientific names of the bones.

Home Learning

The children have done some fantastic home learning tasks this half term! Have a look at some of the children’s creations. I can not wait to see what next half term brings.

Mr Singh

Mr Singh came to visit us today to talk about India and gave us an insight into Sikhism.

Elephant Artwork

As part of our India topic the children tested their sketching and shading techniques and have created some amazing pieces of art, it was really hard to select a few for the website, they were all fantastic!


BFG Workshop

Here are some pictures from our BFG Workshop with the Derngate. The children had lots of fun acting out different dreams and exploring character.

Anglian Water

We learnt lots of interesting facts about how much we use water and now know how we can be water efficient!!


Our new school value this term is honesty. As a class we discussed honesty and how we can be honest. The children then performed a drama performance on showing honesty in different situations.


Hot Chocolate Reindeer Cones

Everyone loved making these reindeer hot chocolate cones to sell at the Christmas Fair. We were very tempted to keep them for ourselves.  We hope everyone who buys one enjoys them.

Usually cones are freezing

but this one will warm you up.

Just add some hot water

and stir into your favourite cup.



Stonehenge Models

Year 3 loved making these Stonehenge models out of clay and biscuits.


Tennis Tournament

Year 3 had a great morning at the Tennis Tournament.

Autumn Walk

Year 3 went on a lovely Autumn walk around the village. We used our senses to explore, gathering autumnal objects and thinking of lots of vocabulary we can use next week for our Autumn poetry!

In Literacy, we have been focusing on The Stone Age Boy. We did some drama activities to get into role as the Stone Age Boy including Hot Seating, where we asked the Stone Age Boy questions about his day and how he felt when he went back in time to the Stone Age. The children loved acting!!


In Maths the children looked at comparing numbers using greater than and less than symbols. We made our own Greedy Gerty’s (a crocodile that eats the bigger number) as part of Roald Dahl day, linked to The Enormous Crocodile.

Welcome to Year 3!

We had a fabulous first week back at school. We did lots of team building exercises with the Parachute and we went on a rock hunt in Science! When we got back to class we grouped our rocks based on their appearance before learning about different types of rock.

We are launching our new weekly Maths Challenges. We would love all children to take part and they will be rewarded for effort and achievement.
