Year 3 Robins


Robins are cheerful and friendly birds, well known for their distinctive colouring and beautiful song. These colourful characters are lively and outgoing, and will brighten anyone's day. Although small in stature, they are daring and adventurous, and use their inquisitive nature to innovate and problem solve. 


As younger members of the year 3/4 team, Robins use these skills to work together harmoniously and set their sights high on soaring in the sky.

The class teacher in Robins is Mr Shaun Wingrove. The Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Pateman and Mrs Netherway.

Dance this half term

In Dance in Year 3, we have looked at traditional African dance positions and used ideas from these to create our own short dances in groups. We had to ensure that we had strong movements within our dances and included different levels.

Netball Kidz session

This week, we had a fantastic opportunity to have a taste of netball. Netball Kidz came into school to lead a session for our children. The children loved this opportunity where they practiced their throwing, catching and team work skills...

Macmillan coffee morning

We have been learning about the hero Marie Curie and her contributions to helping to fight cancer. We wanted to help in raising money which goes towards the fight against Cancer as well as helping those who are currently experiencing this horrific disease. In order to do this, we organised a coffee afternoon where we brought in cakes and made cakes ourselves. All parents were then welcome to come and have a slice of cake, a cup of squash and give a donation to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. Below are a few pictures of what we got up too...

Science - Human Body 

Recently we have been learning about Marie Curie. We looked Marie and how she performed the first x-ray. This prompted us to learn about the Human Body. We made our own models of the leg looking at how the leg moves. We used elastic bands to represent tendons and cotton wool to show the muscles
