Class 3

Brilliant Biographies!

Do you know the difference between a biography and an autobiography?

Ask anyone in Class Three, they will tell you!

Here they are, sharing their life stories in chronological order. 

It was fascinating learning more about each other!


Pumpkin Parade 2019

Thank you to everyone who enjoyed this years Pumpkin Parade. Despite the rain, we still had a busy hall full of children, parents and carers looking at the wonderful creations and enjoying hot chocolate and cookies. 

Well done to all children who entered the competition and a special mention for the 3 winning pumpkins. It was very tricky to choose! 

Thank you to the PTFA for organising and running another fabulous event!

Dictionary Detectives!

Don't know what a word means?

Well, Class 3 have the dictionary skills to find out!



300 mugs on tour!

And they’re off to The Padley Centre - jingle jangling all the way! 


and they’ve arrived - all ready to be used for lunch. Thank you everyone for your kind harvest gift - together we’ll make a real difference. 


Harvest thanks and final total


Thank you so much to everyone involved in our Harvest assembly today - what great TEAMWORK! Together, everyone gave a valued contribution which shared our special Harvest message of thanks, working together and thinking of others.

Thank you for all of the kind donations of spare mugs which will head towards The Padley Centre in the next few days; luckily our assembly was 'smashing' for many reasons and not because of broken mugs!


MONDAY - 299 mugs + one more from Mrs Mason = 300 mugs to donate!

We are thrilled to announce that 300 mugs will be heading towards The Padley Centre this week - that's a whole days worth of hot drink containers for the homeless people of Derby - thank you.


Please help us and name all of your child’s uniform.

We have an abundance of unnamed uniform in our lost property box already. Please help us to return it to the rightful owner by naming all uniform with permanent pen or name labels. Thank you. A7FE9813-D506-4028-80DA-F9D4A75EEB32

Blue Peter Success

How wonderful to catch up with Theo and find out about his continuing Blue Peter badge collection. Here are the badges that were awarded for Theo's tennis playing and also for his cake baking to commemorate the Blue Peter tortoise retiring from the show.  Thank you for sharing Theo - which one will be next?  Toby told me that he is busy working towards his first Blue Peter badge too -   can't wait to see it Toby!

So lovely to see so many parents, grandparents

The National Stone Centre

Class 3 had the fantastic opportunity to visit the National Stone Centre to support their 'Rocks' Topic. They had a brilliant time and learnt lots about the properties of rocks, and were fascinated to discover how different rocks are formed. 

Panning for gems was great fun, although harder than it looks! The fossil trail was very interesting too, who would have thought there were so many fossils around to see?

The Class were then able to create their very own fossil! What a fantastic day.
