During the school closure, we will be setting work through the Purple Mash and DB Primary virtual learning environments. Skipworth and Lonsdale classes in particular will be utilising the DB Primary platform as this has more functionality for teacher support- children can email teachers with questions through the DB Primary platform and can access pages that teachers have created to support them in completing tasks. Children can also email other children within the school- this is monitored by staff. The software does not let them email people outside of the school.
Usernames and passwords for DB Primary were delivered by telephone prior to the school's closure. If you did not receive this, or your child is having difficulty accessing DB Primary, you can email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org for help and support. Alternatively, you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
More information on accessing DB Primary is available here.

Welcome to the Cork, Lonsdale and Skipworth classes!
Throughout Year 3, the children will learn about diversity and respect through our theme 'The Environment'.
Key concepts such as pollution, littering, habitat destruction, global community and impact are built into everything we learn.
Our curriculum is adapted every year to ensure a fresh, exciting and inspirational learning experience for our classes. Those with family members who have been in Year 3 previously will notice some familiar topics, such as the Romans, but each lesson is carefully considered with regard to learning outcomes, cultural education, our values curriculum, the children's interest and, of course, enjoyment, before it is included in a scheme of work. This means that no Year 3 cohort will have the same experience as the one before it! We hope the children enjoy every lesson and look forward to each new topic.
Below you will see some of the literature that we will be basing our English and topic lessons around this year:
P.E. is every Thursday and arrangements depend on your child's class.
Skipworth have P.E. in the morning, so they should come to school already wearing their P.E. kit. They should bring their school uniform in a bag with their name clearly labelled on it and on each item of clothing. As the weather gets colder, children may prefer to wear their school trousers over their shorts on their way to school.
Cork and Lonsdale have P.E. in the afternoon, so children should bring their PE kit in a bag with their name clearly labelled on each item of clothing.
Earrings and other jewellery should not be worn on Thursday.
Skipworth 3's spellings, to be tested on 7th February, are:
