Year 3 Class

Woodland fun in Cherry Class

Last week we had a lot of fun in the woods. We found a fox’s hole and used our knowledge of nocturnal animals to determine the fox must be asleep. We also had our snack in the woods and enjoyed playing with the sticks and looking for bugs.

Phonics in Year 3

Some children in Beech Class had great fun practising their Phonics. They had to identify the different phonemes on stickers, then match them to the corresponding one on the coloured paper. They then went on to write some great words and sentences using these graphemes.
