Book a Week - The children will need both their Book a Week record and reading book in school with them every day.

Mrs Abbot is reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl. To listen in, go to the Year 4 page and catch up on the tale of George.

We are very grateful to all the parents who are keeping home learning going during this time. 


The Robin Hood Trust has written a range of home learning projects. Each weekly topic covers a broad range of fun, educational activities which are low stress but worthwhile. We would love to know how you get on with them. There is also a link below to the website where you will find previous week's projects and projects to suit other age groups. 

Check out the BBC iPlayer and Red Button service for specially-designed educational programming and lessons for every year group. There are also programmes and podcasts available on the BBC Sounds App.
Ruth and Lisa have been busy adding lots of links to the Library page. Here you will find everything you will need to help you with your reading challenge. Follow the link or find 'The Library' below the Enrichment tab. 

Each Friday we will add a new science experiment that you can try from home. Today we have ‘Tornado in a bottle’. Be careful… if you don’t tape the bottles together carefully it can get messy! If you want to take any pictures, we would love to see them when you are back at school. Have fun!

WW2 history lessons


Liverpool war museum are offering free WW2 history lessons on Facebook and YouTube. The lessons are aimed at primary school children, but are suitable for any age group with an interest in this! These lessons link well to the ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ project that the children have been learning across the school.


The next live lesson is on Wednesday 1st April at 1pm. You can access this lesson by typing ‘Western Approaches’ into the Facebook search bar.


All past lessons are added to YouTube and can be found by searching for ‘Western Approaches’.



In our Art lessons we have learnt how the Ancient Greeks made vases. We used papier mache to construct our own vases, added handles and bases and then designed and added the decorations.

Year 3 have enjoyed learning a variety of dance movements. They have worked together in small groups to put together a piece for performance to the rest of the class.

During Science week Year 3 learnt how to make butter. This linked with our learning about WW2 as butter was rationed during the war and so people often made their own.

Visit from Jon Agee

In October, Years 2 and 3 visited the Children's Bookshow at The New Wolsey Theatre, where they listened to the author Jon Agee talk about how he writes and illustrates his books.

The day after, he visited 3R at school and ran a workshop with them about creating pictures to tell a story.

The children had lots of fun working with Jon, creating interactive pictures to tell their own stories.

Year 3 Computational Thinking Day at BT

We worked on eight different challenges throughout the day. Each challenge was designed to develop our computing, scientific, mathematical and technological skills. Throughout the day collaboration was an important skill to use as we worked with others to design and test algorithms using a variety of different equipment.

Year 3 Greek Day

On Thursday 16th January 2020 Ninny the Greek visited Year 3 to help us with our learning about the Ancient Greeks. We came to school dressed in our Greek costumes and had a super time learning about the Greek city states and their rulers, the Greek mathematician and inventor Archimedes, armour and weapons and the first Olympic games. We played strategy games, tried to solve a mathematical puzzle and held our own mini Olympics (Greek Style!)

Design Technology - Cam Mechanisms. We chose to focus on rainforest animals to link in with our learning in Geography.

Science and Geography - As part of our learning about rock formation we have investigated how different rocks are formed using chocolate!
