Maundy Thursday in Year 3. We were sad when Jesus (Rhys) told us (his disciples) that this would be our last supper. We drank "wine" as a symbol of his blood, and bread as a symbol of his body. He washed our feet and told us to always love one another.

Cheese scones are on the menu this week 😊

The children have been working so hard during P.E lessons over the last term to learn dances from around the world. In groups the children chose a country and created their own dance from their experiences in previous lessons. Each group preformed their dances to their parents at a showcase on Tuesday 19th February and were all fantastic. Da iawn Year 3. A big thank you to all of the parents who were able to come and watch and support their children.

Year 3 have been learning all about the reasons why some people pray, who or what they are praying to, and what people are praying for. After a lovely activity with our prayer bucket, Year 3 wrote some very thoughtful prayer tags. We will put them up in our Spiritual Area and pray they will be answered. 

Huge 'Thank you' to Dave for coming into Year 3 and teaching us all about the Saint Johns Services and some basic first aid.

Year 3 have been working with Ashley from the Sherman Theater. He has been coming in and teaching us all about the joys of Physical Theater and how it can make story telling very interactive and interesting. 

We are only at the beginning of our project with Ashley, we can't wait to see where these new skills will take us! 

Why is water such an important symbol in the Christian faith?

Year 3 came up with some fantastic and very thoughtful ideas. They wrote them down in chalk on the playground, chose their top 5 and washed the others away. 

Our science experiment on how different liquids can affect our teeth
After learning about when William Gladstone ended the tax on sugar and this affected had the standard of oral hygiene of people in the Victorian era, Year 3 conducted a fascinating experiment exploring if different liquids can be good or bad for our teeth

We didn't use real teeth in our experiments, we used egg shells to imitate the enamel on our teeth.

Ask our children what they found out about the different liquids. It was smelly business collecting our findings!



Victorian Christmas Workshop


What a success! We had great fun making crackers, pomanders, garlands, mulled apple juice, baubles and marbling paper. 

Thank you to all the parents who came and joined in with our Victorian festivities! 

A huge thank you to Mrs Ryan and Miss Edwards for clearing the classroom afterwards! 


We hope you have just as much fun with your own christmas traditions this holiday. 



What a fantastic day out in Bristol!

We had so much fun visiting the SS Great Britain.

We learned lots of interesting facts about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and what it was like to be a Victorian on a great ship like the SS Great Britain.

Huge thank you once again for our parent helpers who make this all possible. 

Here is the copy of the letter for the upcoming trip in Year 3.

The Big Pit


Year 3 had a fantastic time at the Big Pit yesterday. We learned so much about the importance of the mining industry to Wales, how the mining industry developed to keep up with the demand of the 'black diamonds'.  We learned about how they used horses, children and dogs down in the mine too! 

I can't wait to share the wonderful pieces of work that come as a result of this fantastic trip!

Huge thank you to Mrs Osborn and Mrs Singh for helping us out! We wouldn't be able to give the children these amazing experiences without your time and support.
