Erupting Volcano

A pupil made this volcano at home as part of her homework menu and brought it into school. She used washing up liquid, red food colouring, water and baking soda mixed with vinegar to simulate a volcanic eruption.

Welcome Back everyone.

It has been so lovely to meet all of our new Year 3 children.

They have already settled in well and are working hard.


Each child has brought a book mark home with them. On this book mark are all of the usernames and passwords they need to access learning online. They all have a Seesaw account they can access which has all of their learning for each day on. If they are ever absent, then they can use Seesaw to catch up with anything they have missed. Seesaw is also the place to catch any messages and our Homework Menus are on there too.

The children also have usernames and passwords for Pixl Vocab app and Pixl Mental Maths app as well as for either Reading Eggs or Reading Plus.  


Each week, your child will have a list of spellings they need to learn - these will be found on Seesaw. These will be tested the following week.

They will also need to learn their times tables and will be tested on these on a weekly basis.


Currently PE is on Friday afternoons. Children can wear their PE kit / tracksuit on this day as well as on a Wednesday when it is Work Out Wednesday.
