Local History Challenge

We have recently been to visit the fabulous Smithills Hall. Whilst we were there we had the opportunity to look around and experience some of the history connected to this great building.

Year 3-4 challenge

My challenge is for you to research the history of the house dating back to when it was first built.

You may present your research in as creative a way as possible.

The work that is judged to be the most thorough and detailed (but most important –  ACCURATE)

will receive a prize.

Good Luck and happy researching,

Mr Parr

Mr Parr and Mr Rudd would like to welcome back the Year 4 children and would also like to welcome the new Year 3 children, and hope that they have as much fun in Key stage 2 as they have had in Key Stage 1. This year will hopefully be a year of great experiences and be full of successes for the children.

Welcome to 2016-17 in Year 3-4!


Welcome to our class blog for this academic year.

I will try to update the page as often as possible

and put interesting things for you to read and

activities for you to do.

I hope you will encourage your child to interact with this blog page and post replies to my challenges throughout the year. I would really appreciate any support you are able to provide your child with, whether that’s helping complete the challenges or just letting them use your computer!

A big “Thank you” from Mr Parr.

We have been learning all about Spain and its wonderful culture.

This half term in year 3/4 we’ve been learning a lot about Spain and we have found its culture to be fascinating! The history and architecture of Spain is especially interesting.

For instance, did you know that The Kingdom of Spain, as it’s officially known, is the second largest country in the EU? Or that in 1603, Spanish sailor Gabriel de Castilla (1577-1620) became the first man ever to see Antarctica?

What other facts do you know about Spain? Leave your comments down below.
