The final stages of our 'Victoria Park Project'
The children have had great fun working on a large mosaic butterfly and insect themed bird feeders. When all was complete, we had our final trip to the park last week to display what had been made. It was a thoroughly enjoyable project and we hope to continue supporting the park at a later date. Please pop down and see what we've created. (behind the cafe and cycle track). We're very proud of what we've achieved.
Memories of our residential trip to Escot
Sleeping in yurts, exploring the maze, den building, delicious food, making things in the Anglo-Saxon Village, camp fire talent show, swamp walk, drop slide, beautiful wildlife... the list goes on!
Such a privilege to take part in such an adventurous, team-building experience.
Mount Batten Beach and Pizza Express
The children who did not go on the school residential to 'Escot' had plenty of fun back in Plymouth. We ventured to Mount Batten beach via the ferry on Wednesday 13th June and had fun making and eating pizzas at pizza express on Thursday. We're very excited about watching 'Peter Rabbit' at the cinema tomorrow, with the Foundation class.
'Victoria Park Project'
The Year 3 have been involved with a very exciting project with Victoria Park. In school we have been designing bug gardens, bug hotels, caterpillar mosaics and much more!
On Wednesday 23rd May our class walked to Victoria Park. We had a fabulous day painting the crate box caterpillar and filling it with flowers. We also made a bug hotel and planted lots of bulbs around the wooded area of the park. We enjoyed a picnic underneath the trees and luckily had time to have free play in the park.
After half term we will return to the park taking our mosaic butterfly and insect bird feeders. We can't wait!
Releasing our Butterflies
We were so fortunate to be able to watch some caterpillars change into cocoons and then emerge as butterflies. It was an amazing transformation to be able to observe. When they were ready we released them into the school garden.

We were extremely lucky that our Brittany Ferries visit was postponed from last term. When we finally boarded the ship it was a gloriously sunny day and we were fortunate to be on board ship while the boat was moved out of the dock and turned around. We imagined that we were on a foreign cruise!
Around the World - Topic Day
We had great fun playing games from around the world, flamenco dancing with Miss Mallard and having a feast of delicious foods from various continents. Thank you to all the parents who provided food on this day, we greatly appreciate it.
World Book Day - March 2018
The children had so much fun taking part in a range of activities that were arranged by a number of organisations. These included students from the robotics department at Plymouth University, Ali and Rebecca from the Shark Trust and students from the University studying dentistry. The children also had the opportunity to experiment with magnets, electrical circuits and use high powered microscopes to analyse flowers and other various objects. It was an action packed morning full of excitement.
A huge 'THANK YOU' to all of the volunteers for their time and effort this morning. We very much appreciate your support.
On Friday 9th March we had athlete Robert Mitchell visit us at St Andrew's. All children were involved in completing a sponsored circuit course in the hall. It was a tough, but enjoyable challenge.
Bea impressed us with swimming 3000 meters in one go! An amazing achievement Bea, well done!
Congratulations to Sol, Ghalyah and Evie who all received certificates for their effort and hard work.
A huge 'Thank You' to Miss Slyfield who has been teaching in Year 3 for two terms. Good luck with your next placement, we will certainly miss you here at St Andrew's.
Children Around the World - Class Assembly
A stunning 'Around the World' assembly from the Year 3 children. They all sang, spoke and danced with such confidence. A super effort Year 3, well done! Here are a few photos to capture the moment.
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to the new Spring term. We hope that you've all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We are all very excited by our new topic 'Children of the World'. Look out for our curriculum letter and poster coming shortly with details of the term ahead.
Welcome to Year 3

Anglo-Saxon Shelter Building
We had great fun making Anglo-Saxon shelters. A huge 'THANK YOU' to all the parents and grandparents who came in to assist. We could not have done it without your help.
Our 'Anglo -Saxon' Assembly
Our 'Anglo-Saxon' Themed Day
We had great fun carrying out a range of Anglo-Saxon activities throughout the day. We made vegetable stew and oatcakes, used looms to weave and enjoyed singing songs and feasting around a camp fire.
Internet Safety Day!
Year 3 loved dressing up as 'Coding Cat' to celebrate 'Internet Safety Day'.
'Be Safe, Be Seen'
We enjoyed coming to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and had fun completing the obstacle course.
Our Year 3 Anglo-Saxons
A huge thank you to all parents and guardians who have helped the children to create their 'Anglo-Saxon' costumes. They are all absolutely stunning! The children loved trying them on and posing for their photos. They'll have an amazing time at Escot next week wearing them.
Farewell Year 3! We will miss each one of you! We are looking forward to watching you grow in Year 4 and beyond, achieving so much.
We would like to say a huge 'thank you' to the parents for all your support throughout the year. We also really appreciate the lovely cards, letters, thoughtful comments and treats that we have received this week. It has been a privilege to be part of the childrens' learning journey and a pleasure getting to know our extended St. Andrew's families!
Best wishes for the future,
Mrs Dean, Miss Mann & Miss Jones.
