Rockmount Sports Day from Home! W/C 13th July

This week we would like for you to take part in our Rockmount Sports Day from Home! This Sports Day can be completed independently or with siblings and is focused on encouraging you to achieve your personal best. This means you should try each activity at least 3 times to see if you can beat your previous scores and achieve your personal best. 

Coach Charlotte has put together some demonstration videos of each activity to show you exactly how they should be done. We understand that you may not have certain pieces of equipment at home. Therefore, we invite you to use your imagination to replicate the activities! For example, you could use a box to replicate a target area or a sock to replicate a bean bag. You could even use a toilet roll to replicate a football!

Attached below is a score card for you to download and use to record your scores and personal best. Please send them into the year group email address along with any photos of your Sports Day. We’d love to see how you get on!

Good luck!

Wider Curriculum

How can I teach children about racism and discrimination?

It is important to discuss racism with children, including discrimination, the causes of racism and the consequences of allowing racism to happen. This PowerPoint is ideal for teaching KS2 children about how to identify racism including, language, behaviour and the long term effects of racism both in society and personally. 

Children will learn what race is and will develop a clear understanding of the Declaration of Human Rights, the need for equality and the right that everyone has to be treated fairly and equally. 

It also encourages children to reflect on their own behaviour and to question whether they have discriminated against someone due to their race.

How can I support my child’s learning about racism?

It is important that your child learns about racism. They should learn what it is, how to identify it and what the long term effects are when it is allowed to carry on. This PowerPoint will help children to know how to tackle racism or discrimination appropriately, should they come across it in the playground. It also encourages them to think about their own behaviour and how this impacts significantly on others. This will teach children about human rights, identity, people who have fought against racial discrimination and positive things that are happening to stop racism.

Below is a 'European Flags' activity where you can have a go at naming and labelling European flags. See how many you can have a go at without any help! We've provided a poster with the answers for any you are unsure of. 


Challenge: Can you name their capital cities too?

Autumn Term

Year 3 have had an exciting start to the term, learning about all things 'Dinosaurs'. We have taken them through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous period and looked at how dinosaurs evolved. We took a trip to Crystal Palace park and used our imagination to create and design our own dinosaurs. In Literacy we wrote our own dinosaur adventure stories, which included an element of suspense. In Science we learnt about Electricity and made our own complete circuits. We are looking forward to our trip to the Natural History Museum and taking part in a 'Dino Investigation Scene' workshop in December.

Power of the Earth!


Year 3 have been learning all about volcanoes this half term! We have spent time researching how volcanoes are made and labelled our own detailed diagrams. We also have been reading the story 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit and thinking about what life would've been like if you were trying to escape from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius! We have been using lots of descriptive language in our role plays and writing and took inspiration from rediscovered artwork in Pompeii to make our own Roman mosaics.



Spring Term


Year 3 have had an exciting start to Year 3 and are learning all about different types of weather! They have already bought in lots of creative extreme weather homework including tornado acrostic poems and stories about flash floods! We are learning all about different climate zones and how they affect both us and other animals. In Literacy we are reading 'The Wind in the Willows' by Kenneth Grahame and we are enjoying finding out what mischief Toad is causing!


We have been making our own weather mobiles to hang in our classroom and we have even been learnign how to say what the weather is in French!
