Home Learning in Panda Class during Covid 19!

During these unusual times and us not being in school, Panda children and parents have been working extremely hard during their home learning. The effort that has gone into completing the tasks set has truly put a smile on my face each and every day. I am very proud of you all and I can’t wait to see what you will upload next. 


In English we have been working hard on our GPS on Spelling Shed and Learning by Questions. We have also been looking at broadening our vocabulary by looking at synonyms and antonyms. We have been continuing our reading in some really comfy or unusual places. 


In Maths we have been working very hard on our column addition and subtraction as well as long division and multiplication. We continue to progress on TTRockstars learning our times tables at a super fast speed. We have looked at fractions and shape using Learning by Questions in which the children are very good at. 


In History we have recapped our prior learning on the Stone Age, Bronze and Iron Age from this year. Next we will be looking at the Ancient Egyptians. 

In Geography we have been researching new OS map symbols and creating new towns using these. 

In Science we have been looking at forces and magnets and next we will be moving onto light and shadows. 


We have also been keeping up with out Music, French, Art & D.T, P.E and R.E. 

Take a look at some of our fabulous work.

Welcome to Panda's Class!


Please follow our new class twitter account and see what we have been up to!




A new school, new year and a new class. In Panda's this year Miss Platts is the class teacher and Mrs Bane is the TA. 

The children have settles nicely into new routines within the school and the classroom. We are looking forward to what this school year will entail. 


In the Autumn Term we will be learning about the Stone Age in History and experiencing our very own Stone Age day where the children will come to school dressed up and experience different Stone Age day activities. 


We have been working very hard writing our very own folk tales in English and place value in Maths. 


The standard of home reading and homework has been incredible and I hope this continues throughout the year.

Our visit to Leyland Library!

In English this term, we are reading Stig of the Dump and writing our very own stories as a theme linking to our Stone Age topic. 

In Maths we are looking at our 2's, 3's, 4's and 8 multiplication and division facts

Stone Age Day!


In year 3, we are currently learning about the Stone Age so we decided to hold a Stone Age day in school for the children to experience what life was like in that era. The children and staff all dressed up in fantastic costumes which really brought the day to life. They took part in numerous activities throughout the day such as an archaeological dig, shelter building, having their lunch around a camp fire, making jewellery and cave paintings.It was definitely a day to remember and the children really enjoyed it. A huge thank you to all the families for taking the time and effort to put together their amazing costumes. 


In Year 3 we thoroughly enjoyed our Iron and Fire Day where our professional Blacksmith's Gary and Lee from Friargate Forge  demonstrated what you can do with metal when it is heated up. The children thought they were like real life magicians. 
After Christmas for the Spring term we are going to be moving away from the Stone Age and entering the Bronze/Iron Age. More exciting times ahead!

Reading in a super comfy or an unusual place during lockdown.
