Music in Class 3

We developed a musical composition based on the Japanese cherry blossom festival of Hanami. We wrote haiku as lyrics for our pieces and developed a melody to represent the blossom and used percussion to mirror the weather.

Science Day 2023

On 6th February we spent an exciting day on science, performing experiments based around nursery rhymes, making miniature explosions and being wowed by a visitor from Mad Science who blew enormous smoke rings, performed some illusions and surprised us all with a big bang!

Here are some pictures from the day...

Football v Harvington 

On Wednesday pupils from Harvington came over to play football. An exciting game saw Church Lench take a two goal lead before Harvington fought back to lead 3-2. A late equaliser from Church Lench saw the game end in a draw and everyone had well-deserved biscuits and squash. 

An Honourable Draw

Stand and deliver!

At the start of our "Crime and Punishment" topic Class 3 had a visit from a real live highwayman who, after he had relieved the children of their valuables* settled down to answer some questions about the life of a highwayman in the 18th century. The children will use the information they have learnt to help them write a story about a highwayman in English and to assist with their History learning. 


* Not really!

A highwayman holds up Class 3!

Charging through the mud!

On Monday 16th January we took a team of Year 5s to Prince Henry's High School to take part in the regional School Games Cross Country. Parts of the course were a little bit muddy and many pairs of trainers (including Mr Debenham's may now need a bit of a clean!) Everyone had a fun morning, even if some of the children would have preferred a walk rather than a run! 

A Day Out in the Mud!
