The Year 3 Team

Our teachers are Miss Paterson in Cedar and Miss Bernabo in Pine.

We are very lucky to have several Teaching Assistants; Miss Dalton , Mrs Bashir , Mrs Ahmed and Mrs Bibi who support the children with their learning.

On Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th May, Year 3 went to Hollingworth Lake to take part in water confidence sessions. We had a fantastic time, a lot calling it their favourite day of Year 3 so far!



Christ Church, Healey

On Thursday 13th June, Year 3 walked to Christ Church in Healey for a visit. We looked around the beautiful, old church and learnt about the Christian faith. We were very grateful to Reverand Gill and the volunteers who were very kind and accommodating.







On week beginning Monday 15th April, Year 3 went on an overnight residential to Moorland Home in Whitworth. We had a mixture of weathers; hail, thunder, rain, wind and bright sunshine but this didn't stop the children from having a great time! We did some sketching in the woodland, made our own lunches and played with our friends in the fantastic playground. We hope you enjoy the photographs!


On Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st of March, both classes visited Nelson St Church in Rochdale to learn more about the Christian Festival of Easter as part of our RE curriculum. The children took part in some interesting activities and were excellent and respectful guests.

On Wednesday 13th December, two members of Nelson St Church in Rochdale came in to Year 3 to talk to us about the Nativity story. They challenged us to make a stable in Bethlehem for Mary and Joseph out of cocktail sticks and midget gems! We also made our own board games. We had a brilliant morning.


Maya Archaeologist
On Wednesday 18th October we had a visit from Dr Diane Davies, the UKs only Maya Archaeologist! She showed us lots of photographs and videos from her travels and work in Meso-America at the Maya sites she studied and worked in. She also gave us lots of information and brought in fascinating artefacts for us to investigate. We have loved our work on the Maya!



'On Wednesday 4th October we took part in a live lesson with thousands of other children from all over the country! The lesson was all about Harvest. We followed a chef cooking a delicious meal and found out where the ingredients (chicken, yoghurt, flour and coriander) came from! We even saw a calf being born live at the dairy farm!
