Year 3 Community Afternoon

Thank you to the parents and carers who were able to join Class 7 for their Community Afternoon.  The children enjoyed making collages of flowers, using photos that they had taken themselves, and using the watercolour paints to create fabulous pictures.

Musical Art!

As part of our Arts Project, Class 7 thought about how different layers in a landscape made them feel.  Then they used musical instruments to represent their feelings.  The children worked in partners and performed to the class at the end of the lesson.

British Values

Class 7 have been talking about things that they have in common with their classmates and things that are different.  They made a 'Dream Jar' to share their dreams for the future   .

Keeping Safe Online

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things.

But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault. TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to us at CEOP. Click the logo above to do this.

If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police. They will make sure you are safe.
