Well, what a day!
Today in three we embarked on the Great British Spring Clean and ventured out to litter pick in our local area. We were armed with everything we needed to be EXPERT LITTER PICKERS. Gloves, Litter Pickers, Bags and High Vis vests.
We began walking outside our school and could not believe the amount of rubbish stuffed behind our walls. But, being the expert litter pickers that we are, year 3 were sure to pick up anything in sight!
As we made our way to Tankersley Church, we continued on our quest and after 20 minutes our bags were already full! It was time to hand out extras and continue in to the woods.
The children were a pleasure to watch / work with. They were overheard talking about what is biodegradable and what’s not. They discussed facts in relation to how long this litter would remain in the environment if we were to leave it there and were even heard chanting “we’re saving the world! We’re saving the world” .
What amazing young people.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Well done Year 3 ❤️🌎
We realised that lots of sorting needs to take place but this isn’t done by hand!
We used our own conveyer belt with blowers and magnets to separate the different items of rubbish.
How did you sort your rubbish today?
We had some VERY INTERESTING visitors this afternoon, they work at the largest recycling plant in South Yorkshire. The first thing they allowed us to explore was ‘what happens to the waste from our black bin & how is it sorted?’
Can you tell somebody what you were doing during this activity and how you sorted your rubbish?
Today Y3 went on strike for 1 hour hoping their actions would alert Mr Fallon and the rest of HCPS to the affects of single use plastic usage within school.
During this time, the children designed posters and placards which they used in a demonstration on the playground this afternoon.
The children received a letter from Mr Fallon expressing his views on this situation. Over the next few weeks the children will be preparing their response.
Please ask the Y3 children about their experiences and what they hope to achieve within school.
Just a quick post to say a big thank you to our year 3 children.
We are learning about the effect of litter and single use plastic on our planet and environment.
Our classes have shared their enthusiasm, empathy and passion to be the change they want to see in our world.
As they participate in this learning journey, I am incredibly proud of them and their efforts to learn about the impact of single use plastic. It is a pleasure to see them strive to make a difference.
Thank you for supporting the children at home and taking time to fill in their diary and talk to them about their learning. Next term we will continue to apply our geography and ICT skills to learn more about our planet and the difference that our generation can make to help secure its future!
Well done year 3, you are capable of making a huge difference to our school, our community and our planet.
Mrs Huckstepp & Mr Rob.
This week in Year 3 we have been studying Hinduism during RE week.
We have spent time learning about who founded HInduism and where it was founded.
We are beginning to understand the main beliefs and know where Hindus worship.
Today we spent time listening to traditional music and even tried some beautiful Indian food!
What have you enjoyed most about RE week and why?
Did you try any food that you have never eaten before? Did you like it?
This morning, Mrs Burkill and I wanted to thank the children for all of their hard work this term.
We have spent the morning watching POLAR EXPRESS and they have been treated to sweets, treats and HOT CHOCOLATE (plus marshmellows, of course!)
We hope you enjoyed the morning, we have certainly enjoyed seeing the smiles on your faces.
Have a wonderful christmas Year 3.
Mrs Huckstepp & Mrs Burkill

Whatever it is, I want to know! Let’s get in to the Christtmas spirit together.
I look forward to hearing from you all.

Mrs Huckstepp 🙂
You are currently in the middle of inventing your very own hybrid beasts and next week you will begin to write your report about your new creature. As you know you have combined an animal which is living today with a dinosaur that is extinct.
Over the weekend we would like you to gather some facts about your TWO chosen creatures. These will then be used within your report.
Remember you have FOUR SUBHEADINGS.
- Appearance (What your beast will look like)
- Diet (What you beast will eat)
- Habitat (Where your beast can be found)
- Fun Facts (Any interesting facts about your creature)
How many facts can you find about your chosen animals?
We look forward to you teaching us something new on Monday!
Enjoy and good luck!
Mrs Huckstepp and Mrs Burkill
