On Wednesday 30th March, our pupils visited the St. Nicholas Church where they participated in the ‘Experience Easter Journey’, exploring the Easter story and the events of Holy Week. At six interactive stations, they learned the key moments in the Easter narrative:

  2. Servant King– Jesus washes the Disciples’ Feet
  3. Remember Me– The Last Supper
  4. Alone– The Garden of Gethsemane
  5. The Cross– Symbol of Hope
  6. Resurrection– New Life

Spring Term 2 topic homework projects were completed to a high standard. Well done, Year 3!  

We love drama activities to help us with our writing!  In the gallery below, you can see us learning the structure and vocabulary from our model text.

Today we went on a visit to Carrant Brook in order to observe the human and physical features of our local area. During our walk, we took photos of many features including the hills, the brook, the railway track and we heard the noise coming from the motorway.

What have we been learning across our curriculum over the last week?


Last week, Year 3 were learning how to ask for someone's name and how to respond.

Comment t’appelles-tu ? - What are you called?

Je m'appelle - I am called

How about you and your child have a go together? Follow this link: 



We have been learning all about our local area and learning how to spot human and physical features of Northway on both aerial maps and Ordnance Survey maps. We have learned to identify all sorts of things like the motorway, the railway track, the brook, our school. Watch this space - we are becoming real-life Geographers tomorrow when we go for an educational walk to Carrant Brook!


We had an exciting visitor during our Science lesson last week. Rita, a volunteer from the Blue Cross animal charity joined us via Zoom. She told us all about what our pets need. We learned that there are five welfare needs of animals. Also, we got a sneak peek at Rita's own pet, her new puppy! This educational talk has really helped our Science learning, especially as next week we will be writing all about how to look after a pet.

In Ash and Willow, we have recently started our English unit in which we are writing a non-chronological report all about superheroes. We have been learning all about Ratman and his powers. We have learned actions to memorise the model text and explored how we can write sentences about the character using all of the Year 3 writing expectations including capital letters, full stops and adding detail into our sentences. Soon, we will be inventing our very own superheroes in preparation for writing all about them in our own report!
