Year 3

Year 3

Mrs Day is our teacher this year and she is supported by Mr Yates and Mrs Rikart. 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!

Everyone, from Nursery to Year 6 got their elf hats on and set off around our course with great enthusiasm. Whilst some socks and shoes may have been temporarily lost to the well placed boggy […]

New playground marking, road marking and parking areas

Thank you for your understanding whilst we prepared for improving the markings outside of school and on the playground.  You will now see that our lay by has been properly signposted to show it primarily as a drop off zone with four parking bays (see photos). Please do not park in the drop off zone […]

Tim Farron Visits School

It has been lovely to hear Tim’s responses and to hear about how passionate he is about the constituency he has represented.

European Languages Day

Each year we celebrate European Languages Day. Each class looks at a different country and explores the languages, culture and geography.  We have had a super time!  Many classes like to try and explore a new country, this year Belgium was the choice of Year 6.

Tour of Britain day

What an amazing experience! Because the tour was heading through Kirkby Lonsdale, we came together to make a whole school bike wheel on the field before heading off to watch the riders as they sped past. The atmosphere on the road was amazing as dozens of motorbikes, support cars and media vans whizzed past, all […]
