Primary School

Together We Achieve

Class 3

Welcome to Class 3’s page!


The final chapter of primary school is one full of exciting opportunities. The children will enjoy experiences that are rewarding and challenging, allowing everyone to shine in their own unique way.


We have very diverse learning opportunities throughout the year, including Rainforests, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Children during WWII.


As well as supporting children to reach their academic potential, the children will gain more independence and given many additional responsibilities around the school, including the opportunity to become House Captains and School Council leaders in Year 6.


The children will be expected to work hard, but in return, they will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take on their next adventure.





The Mill Adventure Base

James Nicol - Author Visit

Key Stage 2 were visited by children's book author, James Nicol, who came to share his inspiring story of how he came to writing amazing books! 

Lots of children were also lucky enough to have their books signed by James.

Year 6 Bowling

The Year 6 cohort celebrated finishing their SAT's assessments with a trip to the bowling alley in Newark. They all had lots of fun and even scored a few strikes!

Diversity Role Models

Lindsey, from the charity, Diversity Role Models, visited class to increase our understanding and acceptance of individual differences and provided information about the LGBTQ+ community. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed listening to Lindsey talk about her personal experiences and gained lots of valuable knowledge to help them to be better people in the wider world.

NSPCC Workshop

We were visited by Diane, Jill and Hannah from the NSPCC, who taught us how to speak out and stay safe. The workshop explained the different types of abuse children face and the measures we can take if we feel unsafe at any time; either at home or in school.

Spring Rolls

In DT lessons this term, we have been exploring different foods around the world. This week, we made vegetable spring rolls using the cutting and dicing techniques we have learnt previously.

Everyone really enjoyed making the spring rolls, and almost everyone enjoyed the taste of them as well!

World Book Day

Class 3 had a great time on World Book Day, dressing up in their pyjamas and having the chance to enjoy a book reading from all the teachers in our school. We also took part in a book scavenger hunt, searching through our classroom books to find different situations or objects.

Darwin's Finches Experiment

In Science, we have investigated Charles Darwin’s observations of the different beak types of finches on the different islands of the Galapagos.

In our experiment, the “beaks” were either a peg, tweezers or a spoon and the “foods” were pasta, rice and stones. We collated our findings to discover the most successful “beak type” for each “food type”.

Hindu Workshop

Class 3 were visited by Ramila from the St. Philip's centre, who taught us all about Hinduism. We had the opportunity to learn about the celebrations and Gods in the Hindu religion; and see some Hindu prayer resources.

YoungWriters Crazy Creatures

Our Class 3 pupils entered their mini-sagas in to the YoungWriters Crazy Creatures competition. Eighteen of our entries have been chosen for publication in the 'Crazy Creatures - Amazing Tales' book, which is due for release on 23rd February.


In Computing, we have been using Micro:Bits to develop our understanding of coding. Pupils have created algorithms on a coding site to make things, such as: pedometers, fortune tellers.

Perlethorpe Education Centre

Class 3 visited Perlethorpe Education Centre as part of our learning about Anglo-Saxons. We had the opportunity to take part in an orienteering activity, learn all about the history of the Anglo-Saxons, and even had the chance to hold some replica weapons! The whole class had a really enjoyable day.
