Larches 2019-20 Year 3 & 4

Larches had a visit from an artist! Doug Eaton was amazing and we all loved his paintings. He gave us some really good advice about our own art.

Welcome to 2020!

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas break. I am looking forward to another exciting term in Larches.

This term we are doing PE on Monday and Thursday. Please make sure you have warmer kit as we will be outside if possible.

I hope you have enjoyed looking through the fantastic photographs on our class pages. Keep a look out for more as they appear through Spring Term.

There was an earthquake in Somerset last week so we thought we should design and make earthquake alarms. Excellent design technology skills and fantastic use of our circuit knowledge.

We made our own fossils and then excavated them just like Mary Anning.

Hopewell Colliery was flooded so we went mining in forest school instead!

Who made this mess?

Larches ran away to the circus!

New Beginnings!


I hope you have all enjoyed your summer break. I am really looking forward to the new year with all of you. Our topic this term is 'Going Underground'. Take a look at the new topic web to find out more.


Larches will be doing PE on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please can you make sure that you have a PE kit in school and that it includes long trousers and a warm top as the weather will be getting cooler. Also if girls are wearing tights they will need a pair of socks in their kit, I do have spares but would prefer if you could supply your own.


Here's to an exciting year ahead!

Best wishes

Mrs Arnett
