Year 3 Visit Hoyland St. Peter’s Church

Year 3 have been studying Christianity and the Church! They have looked at several features of the Church, so who better to provide a guided tour than our very own parish priest and school governor, Father Richard? We had a lovely time thanks to Father Richard’s hospitality – he provided a wonderful insight into Hoyland St. Peter’s. Thank you to Mrs. Evans for arranging this opportunity.

Year 3 @Exhibition Barnsley

Year 3 visited Experience Barnsley to learn all about the Ancient Egyptians. We firstly learnt all about the sacred scarab beetle and then made our own amulets with different designs. We even wrote our name in hieroglyphics! We then visited Cooper Gallery where we learnt about the interesting work of Harold Jones who became a well – known artist in Egypt. We worked hard to sketch some of his work. We had a wonderful day and even secured a tweet from the museum that shared with the world just how good our Year 3 children were. A great day, thank you to Mrs. Westwood and the team of staff for enabling our children to access such a brilliant opportunity.

Year 3 Maths Stars

Our Year 3 superstars have been working extremely hard in mathematics. They have been adding 3 numbers – including with money as an added complication. Our children have utilised the purple polishing pen to address misconceptions and also then attempted the work independently too! We are delighted with the progress that they are making, well done everyone.
