Class Teacher - Mrs Harding

What an amazing job we did, brilliant playing and singing in French at our ukelele concert.

We had an amazing walk around Silkstone. We had the chance to explore and examine Silkstone Church. looking ta all the features and taking in the history as shown in the memorial window and coal mining cabinet. We then visited the Huskar Pit Disaster Memorial.


Welcome to our class page. We are looking forward to a happy and productive year where your child grows in confidence and independence. 


Please help your child by listening to them read - we send homework every Monday and books home every Thursday. Also, please help your child practise reading and writing their spellings and times tables (tests on Thursday and Friday) and by checking they complete their homework which should be returned to school every Friday.


Your support is very much appreciated and will make a big difference to helping your child  feel secure and achieve their potential.

Year 3 celebrated The Tour de Yorkshire by having a Wheels afternoon. We had fun on our bicycles and scooters; practised our Bikeability skills, 'off road' cycling; had wheel art and did an observational drawing of Mrs Wolff's super track bike! Thank you to everyone for making the effort to bring in your bikes and scooters!

If you want to find out how Stone Age people survived, spent their spare time and even fancy becoming a paleontologist for the afternoon then have a look at the  photographs from our super day spent at Cresswell Crags in Derbyshire. Even better, visit this famous Stone Age site for yourselves. It's not too far away! Children, enjoy sharing these memories with your grown ups.

We all had such a super day  when Queen Cartimandua from the Celtic Brigantes tribe visited Y3. She taught us so much abot the Romans - do you know what a Marius mule is or what the word 'testudo' means? We are now keen to learn even more! Many thanks for the very generous donation we had from a local business that enabled us to give the children a  Roman experience day.


Wow, what a fantastic reading experience; Books for Breakfast for World Book Day. We have shared our favourite books with our buddies from other classes AND had breakfast. Thank you everyone  for all your kind donations.

Welcome back everyone! Happy New Year to you all. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and family time together. Thank you so much for all your lovely cards, gifts and good wishes. We are looking forward to a busy new term with lots of exciting things planned!



Look who came to bring us a present today!

We loved meeting our Y6 Craft buddy and making our Christmas party hat together.

I am so proud of the way the children performed AND sat throughout our Christmas concert this year. Thank you  everyone!

Thank you so much for supporting our Book Fair. We now have a lovely class set of 'Fantastic Mr Fox' for everyone as well as a class copy of Michael Morpurgo's 'The Snowman'.

Look at our amazing clay volcanoes!

On Children in Need Day we came to school in our pyjamas and brought a £1 to give to Pudsey to help children not as lucky as us. We had fun making badges and spotty biscuits; some of us were Quiz winners too.

We all had fun making our papier mache  volcanos that really exploded!  We will be showing them in our Class Assembly


We love exploring the world around us and will spend as much time outside as we can.

'From tiny seeds mighty oaks grow'...we collected seeds from 'Our Tree' and had fun seeing them helicopter in the wind!

We had been learning about seed dispersal in Science.
