Welcome to Newtown Primary School



A warm welcome to Class 3.


Class 3 is a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 class taught by Miss Golightly. Our teaching assistant team also support us regularly in our learning throughout the week.  

On Thursday 29th November we went to visit Jodrell Bank. We explored the galleries and took part in two workshops. We really enjoyed looking at the night sky in the planetarium.






Autumn 2 topic is Space. Our challenge this term is to make moving vehicles. On Friday afternoon we used our team- building skills to design a course to compete with remote control cars. Everyone took part and we had a timed final event. Thank you to all the children who brought in their cars.





For the first half-term, our topic is 'Ancient Greeks'. The children have been involved in planning an Olympic Games event which took place on Wednesday 10th October.We have been to a a Greek Experience with our friends at Thornsett.

We learned many different skills during our topic-

Weekly Brass lessons are now well underway. We are learning to play trumpets and trombones.






  Year Six enjoying Music lessons, Spanish and Lego workshops at New Mills School Bonding Day. We met up with children from the local primary schools for a taster day at the secondary school.







 We went to Thornsett School to share a Greek workshop day which was funded by the PFA and PTA from both schools. It was a great chance to work with Class 3 from Thornsett and find out all about the Ancient Greeks.






Making our Greek costumes for our Olympics Event. We designed costumes, practised sewing, measured and sewed a tunic, made a belt and designed and made a headpiece.






 We made up games to play at the sports event. We investigated instructions by playing card games and then wrote instructions for how to play our own game.
