The teachers in this class this year are Mrs Gates and Mrs Thomas. Year 3 is a very exciting year as the children make the transition from KS1 to KS2. They are encouraged to become more independent both in themselves and their learning. It is also the first year children start playing on the Junior playground with its massive slide, quiet reflection and adventure area.
We learn to play a recorder to a very good standard and read music – a life skill! Our topics are very varied and interesting ranging from the Rainforest, Romans, Coutries on the Meridian and much more. This is a busy year, but we have lots of fun on the way!
I have worked in St Mary’s since 2013 – I started working here before I had even left Sixth Form! I work in Breakfast Club, After School Club, as a midday supervisor and in KS1 and KS2 I love dancing! I started at the age of three and have danced in Blackpool Winter Gardens, The Royal […]

Our children are continuing to build up their cross country skills on Fridays. Hopefully the children will get a few runs in over the Christmas break.
Our staff and governors wish you a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
The children in Year 3 have made angel pictures which have been displayed all around Kirkby. Each day in the run up to Christmas a new angel will be displayed. Each angel is displayed with a letter. Collect the letters to find a Christmas message.
Everyone joined Mrs Smith and Mrs Day for a parade around Kirkby. We dressed in our pyjamas and pretended it was the night before Christmas. Despite the rain we had a lovely time.
Josie, Louisa and Daisy dressed as the Three Kings. Lucy and Emils were Mary and Joseph. We paraded through the streets of Kirkby alongside a camel!
Our partner school in Rochdale made the news last week following their start to advent. The children that came to see us last year, now in Year 5, have been taking part in random acts of kindness. This was picked up by ITV and shown on several bulletins, which you can watch below. What a […]
When Year 3 visited Knowsley Safari Park everyone commented on their excellent behaviour, good manners and in depth knowledge of the rainforest and the animals which live there. We had a lovely day exploring by foot and by coach. The sea lion show and the birds of prey display are a superb highlight. Many thanks […]
We have announced the 20 children who have got a place at the new Fit for Sport club after school on Tuesdays after half term.
Look at our superb art which will be on display at ‘Charlies’ cafe in Kendal for the Comic Arts Festival. Well done Year 3 for a super entry.
Everyone dressed in red white and blue. Joseph taught us how to count to 10. We learnt how to kiss each others cheeks and say, “Bonjour” or “Salute,ca va.” We studied Parisian fashion and performed for the school in our own fashion show. We ate croissants, grapes and French bread, washed down with a cheeky […]
