It was lovely to see so many 'awe and wonder' moments captured throughout the day and really fostered a love for these subjects. Owen's fascination for our 'mini tornados' was lovely to see!

Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!


Merton was invaded by a tribe of Stone Age warriors today! Luckily, the recognised attacking our tribe uphill was slightly more tricky than expected!

What a roaring success our first trip out was, Year 3!

Your behaviour, attitude to the climb and enthusiasm for our experience was fantastic to see. The Year 3 team is very impressed and look forward to offering more experiences over the rest of this year.


Take a look below at a few photos taken from the day!

Year 3 have had an amazing start to the year!

We found our feet during Everybody's Welcome and are now settling in nicely to life at Merton Junior School.


In our next few weeks, we will be becoming Historians, stepping back in time to the Stone Age period.

Take a look below at our cave paintings as we begin to unlock the mysteries of this fascinating age!


Welcome to Year 3!


What a fantastic year we have lined up for you all. The staff have been busy in the classrooms over the summer and the rooms are all ready for your return on the 4th of September! We will meet on the bottom playground on Monday at 8:45am ready to go into our new classroom together. At hometime, we will release onto the bottom playground (MUGA) at 3:20pm.


Our transition topic is called "Everybody's Welcome" and focuses on the book by Patricia Hegarty. This hopefully will give ample time for the children to understand what life is like at Merton Junior School before we get into our first larger project "From Stones to Steel".


We will upload some photographs as we get started so be sure to look back again in the coming weeks!
