During the Easter holidays, year 3 children were given the opportunity to take part in a 3 day intensive ballet workshop at XP school.

The children represented our school beautifully and both myself and Miss Gate were given lovely feedback! What an achievement!
Welcome back Year 4!
Today, we welcomed back all of our children from what was hopefully a lovely Easter break! In Year 4, we will be spending this week immersing ourselves into our new expedition! This term’s expedition, is called ‘Earth Shattering Events’ with the Guiding Question of, ‘What Happens When Nature Strikes!?’. In this expedition, we will be learing all about the natural phenomena which is found on our planet. The children began this learning by creating posters which highlight some of the natural disasters and landforms that can strike upon our planet. Lovely start to the expedition!
The Power of Life celebration event
What an amazing afternoon we had at our Celebration of Learning event showcasing our fabulous learning of our expedition The Power Of Life: What Fuels Us? The children were immensely proud of the work they produced throughout this spring term and thoroughly enjoyed sharing it with parents and carers through our presentation, circuit activities and singing. Huge thinks to all those who attended.
Happy Easter from 3LG
After working hard all term, Mrs Jenkins and thought the children deserved to end the spring term with a treat day. We started the day with some Easter crafts, making Easter wreaths.
We continued our treat day with some baking. We all made Easter nests topped with chocolate bunnies, jelly carrots, mini eggs and fluffy chicks.
To finish the day off we had very special visit from the Easter Bunny which resulted in an easter egg hunt around school where every child got to find their own Cadburys Creme Egg.
A massive thank you to all parents and carers for your amazing support during the spring term. Have a lovely Easter break and see you in the summer term!
