Important information:

  • Spellings go out on a Monday and are tested on a Friday. If ever spellings get mislaid, there is a copy of the spelling booklet for year 3 where you will find all spellings for this academic year. 
  • Children must come to school everyday equipped with their reading book (from our library with appropriate book band) and reading diary. We endeavor to check these daily but will be checked a minimum of every other day. It is crucial to your child's development and learning that they read 4 times a week, this is our target and we have some incentives to keep us going!
  • Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday, please ensure your child brings their PE kits every day in case of last minute changes. 
  • The school office is going "cashless" and will therefore only be accepting payments via "Parentpay". For more information please visit the "Parentpay" page of our website or contact the school office.
  • Homework grids went out at the beginning of term, this includes 9 tasks based on our topic and involve a range of activities. We love to celebrate homework and we will now complete homework celebrations on Monday's. 
  • For any other information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to Mrs Chambers.

 Big question 

Spring 2

Would you survive without a skeleton and muscles? 

This half term we are learning all about the body. We will be looking at the nutrients that both animals and humans need. We will also focus on the skeleton and muscles and why these are important. To help the children learn new information we will be looking at information texts and using the internet to research. 


Spring 1

Would you survive the Stone Age?

This half term we are learning all about the Stone Age. We are exploring a range of different books relating to our topic included non- fiction.

W/B 8th January- The children have been using the internet this week to research what the Stone Age is and they have found some fantastic facts!

Autumn term

Our fantastic Christingle service - 13.12.2017

A massive thank you to everyone who helped to organise our Christingle service. An extra special thank you to the scouts for donating the Christingles themselves, they were beautiful! 

The children again did us all proud and did a fantastic job of singing and thank you to everyone who came to make this a special evening for them. 



Planting poppies - 10.11.2017

Today, was a very special day at Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy. The children all made poppies and wrote lovely messages on them, we then went out and completed a 2 minutes silence. All of the children made me incredibly proud and were respectful when stood there. The poppies look amazing and the children did us all proud.
