Autumn 2

'Environmental Enthusiasts'

Within this topic we will be looking at the local history of Swinton. We will be investigating, as historians, our school and what existed before our school. We will also look at what life was like in the Industrial school. As geographers we will be discussing the human and physical geography of Swinton and what we can do to help and be proud of our local environment. Throughout Science we will be looking at magnets and forces.



This week has been jammed pack full of Christmas activities for the children. We have had church services, Nativities to watch, Dazzling Darren, Film afternoon, Christmas parties, a visit from Santa and Carols round the tree. We have had so much to do and so little time! 


Have a look below at some of the pictures of the things we have been upto.


From Mr Stevenson, Mrs Johnson and all of year 3 we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year and we look forward to seeing all the children back in 2021!


Thankyou parents and carers for your continued support!



This week we have been super busy looking at what Swinton was like over 100 years ago. We have seen lots of pictures now of our local area from both the past and present. 


In Science we made our own magnetic game. We created this game out of card and all we had was a paper clip and magnet. Some of us made mazes whilst other people made fishing games. It was lots of fun.



After all the commotion of this half term the children are back and we're back in full swing! They have worked so hard and it's so good to be back to as normal or as normal as can be in these times. Mr Stevenson and Mrs Johnson would both like to say thankyou to the parents and children for all your efforts this half term (particularly the two weeks at home)


This week we have been working hard and looking at fractions. We have been adding, subtracting, shading and even finding fractions of an amount. We even had a little treat where we looked at fractions of a smarties tube!
