Class Three



We hope you are all well and had a lovely half term break.


For this final half term, we are continuing with our 'I am Warrior' topic.


The Christian value is now FRIENDSHIP  and you will look at that in more detail with Mrs Pilbeam on Wednesday.


The new ROUTE 2 RESILIENCE words for this half term are:

Polite          Understanding           Honest           Adventurous            Courageous              Patient


We look forward to hearing from you soon.


Mrs O'Dowd, Mrs Stevenson & Mrs Blair

Internet Safety


As a school, we carry out lessons on internet safety. Because many children are currently spending more time online, we would like to signpost you to the following sites so you can talk together about staying safe online.


Top tips on how to stay safe online.


Here is a series of 3 videos aimed at children aged 8-10 looking at staying safe online.

Had fun playing Band Runner? Now watch Sam, Ellie and Alfie continue their adventures in the Play Like Share films. The films will help you learn more about staying safe online.
