Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

WOW! What a fantastic start to Summer 2.

On Tuesday 4th June, all of Class 3 went to Shugborough for the day.

First we met our guides Mr Green and Mr West, and then we got our ruck sacks on, ready to start exploring!

We had great fun walking the grounds and learning about different types of trees, plants, and shrubs.

We were then set the challenge to run up Sherbrook Valley on Cannock Chase.

This was not as easy as we all thought!

Next we crossed the stepping stones, ready to do our stream survey.

We then carefully measured the near side bank then the far side bank to track the contour of the stream over 50m.

Then we started DEN BUILDING, just in time before the rain started, so we had to make sure we kept the weather out.

Finally we went to the fire pit and learnt how to light a fire, ready to eat toasted marsh mellows. YUMMY!!

What a brilliant day!  We walked over 8 miles in total so we were a little tired but felt proud of our achievements.  Well done Class 3.


SUMMER is here!

22nd May 2019 – Golf taster session with the professional, Ben Smith!

Here we are!

We can even start golf during the Summer 2 term if we want, by attending a 5 week FUN golf coaching session at Ingestre Park Golf Club after school on Mondays from 4:30-5:30pm.


30th April 2019 – WOW day Saxon experience!

Here we are looking FANTASTIC!!!!


Today we had great fun learning what life was like as a Saxon girl or boy.

We dressed in traditional costume, and to start the day we had to go into our woodland area to collect the wood for the fire.

Well done and great team work!  Here we are…

Then we were challenged to make our very own miniature Saxon village using cardboard boxes, sticks, lolly pop sticks, hay and straw.

This was good fun and a bit messy too!

Here are our finished Saxon homes – our very own miniature Saxon village, with a central camp fire.


20th March 2019 – Sharing our Biographies with some Year 2 children

As one of our writing challenges this half term, we have been researching different inventors and learning about their lives, inventions, difficulties they faced and the impact these inventions have had on us today.  We then produced our own Biographies, recording our findings and then shared them with children in different year groups.  Here are some of us sharing our writing with Year 2.

World Maths Day – Wednesday 6th March

Well done Class 3 for having a fun Maths Day exploring shape, to celebrate World Maths Day.

Here we are making a selection of different sized and different coloured kites by just folding a piece of paper twice.  We then arranged the kites to make different patterns.

28th Nov Cross Country Event

This morning a group of Year 3 and 4 children took part in an outdoor cross country event at Rugeley Leisure Centre.   Despite the windy, cold and damp weather, all the children were eager to take part in the 600m circuit around the field.  Very kindly, some parents came along to support us and we even had our very own pet mascot dog Matilda.

Thank you parents for all your support as always.

Here are the children before the event – Team Colwich!


The Year 4 girls ran first, then the Year 4 boys, followed by the Year 3 girls and finally the Year 3 boys.  Here they go!

Well done everybody for completing the circuit.

You are all winners!  🙂

At the end of half term, we shared our stories with Class 1.

Here are our finished versions.
