We’re going on a bug hunt…

We had fantastic weather again for our year 3 forest school sessions. Linking to our topic on animal habitats, the children in poplar class enjoyed an insect hunt in our school grounds. We used magnifying glasses to safely observe our findings. Well done poplar class!





This week we have been finding out about the religion Hinduism. We started off by learning about Rakhi bracelets. We designed our own and chose who we would give it to.

Sandhya shared many artefacts and Hindu objects with us. We had the opportunity to ask lots of questions and join in with a Puja- worship. 

Kadien ” I had fun dressing up”

Kodie ” I liked having a go at everything especially dressing up in Hindu clothes.” 

Abi ” I loved it when we got to see and smell all the spices and when we got to hear the song.” 

Paignton Zoo

As part of our IPC introduction to Land, sea and sky we have had a wonderful day at the zoo. We have explored animal skeletons and how they move in our workshops and we looked at different animals around the zoo and saw how they were adapted to their surroundings. 

Egg-cellent fun in year three!


We’be had an egg-citing morning today on our last day of term. The Easter bunny has been busy hiding eggs all over the outside area in our school. We had to search high and low, it took some of us a long time to find an egg but we didn’t give up.

Reece – “I liked the bit when we were looking for Easter eggs in the secret garden.”

Isabel – “It was fun because you could run around but it was kind of tricky to find the eggs!”




Shelter building

on Friday afternoon we pretended we were lost in the wilderness. What do we need?  Food, warmth and shelter! We worked together in teams to build shelters from tarpaulins and ropes. It was brilliant, the sun was shining and the children learnt lots of new skills.

Well done for showing our Christian values of friendship and courage to work together and overcome the challenges Willow class!
