Y3/4 Football - 8th November

On Thursday, a group of children participated in the TeamActiv Football Tournament at Dorothy Hyman Stadium. The team played fantastically well at times and managed to finish in second place overall - the highest position we have achieved at this event!

In the five games played, the team won and drew two matches, and were narrowly beaten in the other.

Battle of Britain - W/C 5th November

This week we have been learning all about the Battle of Britain and the different planes both Britain and German flew.  With our new knowledge we then wrote newspaper reports about the Battle of Britain. 

These will be available for viewing in our Museum on 20th November!

Harvest Assembly- 18th October

Year 3 pulled off a spectacular performance at this year's Lower Key Stage 2 Harvest Assembly.  

This year the theme was 'World Hunger' and we learned about World Hunger Day on the 16th October.

Can you tell a grown up all about #zerohunger?

Harvest preparation - w/c 8th October

In preparation for our Harvest Festival next Thursday, we have been learning about the #zerohunger campaign, which is aiming to put an end to world hunger by 2030.

In class we have been discussing many aspects of this, including how we can limit food waste, eat healthier and the impact war can have on hunger - which links to our WW2 topic.

Rationing - 5th October

This week we have been learning about rationing during World War Two.  We were all very shocked with the small amount of food which one person was provided on a weekly allowance, for example, just two rashers of bacon! This prompted a discussion on how many rashers of bacon some of the children had on a bacon sandwich!

We also welcomed two new children to Year 3 this week and hope they have enjoyed their first week at Churchfield.
