Year three visited the Harris Museum in Preston this week. The children behaved beautifully and were a credit to our school. We enjoyed finding out about bronze sculptures and then making our own sculptures from clay. We also spent some time in the discovery room completing a 'time explorers challenge trail'. We loved visiting the museum shop to spend our money and all children showed excellent Maths skills! We had such a lovely day and hope you enjoy looking at our photographs.

We had a fantastic week in Year 3 during MADD (music, art, drama and dance) week. All our activities were linked to the musical 'Chitty, Chitty BANG BANG'. We acted out the story with Mrs Cleasby, sang the songs, performed dances from the show and created t-shirts with sweets designs. We were also visited by the Lytham Arts Society who helped us design and create fabric bunting. What a great week!
MAD week in Year 3
Today, Year 3 were visited by Alan and Stuart from Urban Organics who helped us to design and create a living willow-cross! It was so much fun and we are very proud of it. We are going to take very good care of it as it is very special to us and we love that we can see it every time we look out of our classroom windows. Thank you so much Alan and Stuart and to the parents who joined in and helped us!
Year 3 had a fantastic morning enjoying the 'Thy Kingdom Come' prayer activities. We prayed for our families, our school and the whole world!

Faith Week – Year 3 Purim
In Year 3 we found out lots of interesting information about the Jewish celebration of ‘Purim’. We read all about the ‘Story of Esther’ and created a storyboard. We also made our own Hamantaschen biscuits. We found out about all the different traditions involved with Purim and at the end of the week, we presented our work to Year 5.
