Roald Dahl

In English we have been researching Roald Dahl’s life. Here is a snap shot of some of the work produced by Year 3.


Guided Reading in Swallows

This morning we have spent time doing guided reading. All children have read with me and spent time doing activities to improve our inference skills.


Forest Schools

We have had another lovely afternoon with Jackie and Mo doing Forest Schools.

This afternoon we have made the great individual fires of Weston using a flint and steel. Also, we have been on a tree identification walk around the grounds. All children have had great fun enjoying the frosty conditions. Hot chocolate was very welcomed!!


Forest Schools Fun!

Today in Forest Schools we have done a scavanger hunt related to The Great Fire of London. Also we burnt Pudding and Marshmallow Lane and the children have made a chain where they needed to pass the water down to the leaders who put out the fire. Pudding Lane ignited the quickest and destroyed the village.


Thanks to Jackie and Mo for a fantastic afternoon following the curriculum through a different angle in Forest Schools.



Swallows trip to Pickford’s house

Swallows today visited Pickford’s House as part of our War and Remembrance topic this half term. Children experienced what it was like to shelter in the cellar at Pickford’s House during a World War II air raid attack. During this, they met a costumed ARP warden who explained his role in the war.

Take a look at a few of the pictures that captured our trip below!

I hope you all had a lovely day.
