Year 3: News items

Active March, by Miss Jones

Date: 1st Mar 2021 @ 3:24pm

Being active everyday not only helps our bodies to be healthy but it is also important for our wellbeing. Doing something active can make you smile and feel good. Why not try the Active March challenge with your family? These are quick activities that you can do daily throughout February. There are even 3 levels of challenge if you like to challenge yourself. 

Children's Mental Health Week (1st - 7th February), by Miss Jones

Date: 31st Jan 2021 @ 7:33pm

From 1-7 February 2021 schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 children (and adults) are encouraged to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.


Here are some activities that everyone can enjoy this week and beyond.

Remembrance Day, by Miss Jones

Date: 3rd Nov 2020 @ 5:27pm

Not long ago, windows in many houses in our community featured beautiful, colourful rainbow displays. With Remembrance Day not long away, you may wish to decorate a poppy to display in your window for people to enjoy. 

Here is a link from the Poppy Appeal Website where you can download a free poster to print and colour in/decorate. 

If you do not have a printer, why not draw and decorate your own poppy for your window?

Counting in 4s!, by Mrs Harrison

Date: 29th Sep 2020 @ 4:13pm

Year 3 have started to develop their ability to count in 4s and 8s.

Below is a link to a video we have used to support their recall of counting in 4s. They really enjoyed listening and watching the number patterns in school but requested I shared the website with you at home so that they can sing along to it at home.

Have fun singing and dancing along counting in 4s Superstars!

Adrift performance Tuesday 29th January 6.30 pm , by Mrs Bailey

Date: 25th Jan 2019 @ 6:54pm

We look forward to seeing as many families as possible to the Adrift performance this Tuesday evening in school. The performance is pitched at Key Stage 2 children and will take place in the school hall. Families and children are welcome.

Oldfield Primary School, Action Transport Theatre and the Ignite Teaching School Alliance would like to invite you to our community showing of Adrift:

Two children are in a boat. One is rowing. One is fishing. They dream about a land, a beautiful land that’s waiting for them. A safe land. Adrift is a poignant and important play from acclaimed children’s theatre company Action Transport Theatre. Told from the perspective of two children adrift at sea fleeing conflict, it is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood.

Time - 6.30pm on Tuesday 29th January 2019 at Oldfield Primary School.

Doors open at 6.10pm, refreshments available both before and after.

Please join us after the show for a discussion about the play and how we can develop our curriculum to support our children in their learning.

Please RSVP to , or call 01244 981772 by Tuesday 22nd January

Thank you to the parents who came along to watch at St Martins and/or helped with transport. Finally, thank you to Mr Huddart for coming along to watch too.

Well done to: Maisie (captain), Hannah, Amelia, Grace, Ruth, Evie and Felicity.
