Sparkle Books Children must take bring these to school each day and take them home. They will contain their weekly spellings and any any individual spelling /handwriting practice they need. It acts as a communication link between home and school.

Year 3 Visit Morwellham Quay
On Monday 30th September Year 3 visited Morwellham Quay to start our topic on 'The Victorians'.
Even though the weather wasn't kind to us, we had a great day learning about the lives of Victorians and taking part in some fun activities. 
We went to a Victorian classroom, tried on Victorian clothes, baked bread and even went down the mines!

  • how light travels and reflects
  • the shape and size of shadows
  • dark being the absence of light
  • that light can come from a variety of sources
