University of York (Y3)

Welcome to the University of York!


Hi, our names are Mrs Joesbury and Mrs Etheridge,  welcome to our class page. Please take a look below at all the fantastic learning that has been taking place in Year 3.

Also, why not visit our social media pages to see what's going on across school.

Home Learning 

From Monday 23rd March this page is where we will be posting home learning tasks and activities during the school closure. As well as the home learning booklets that have been sent home there will also be other topic based activities.

We have spoken to the children and explained that they can earn dojo points by sending pictures and videos of themselves completing the various activities to Class Dojo. If the class reach 400 dojo’s points they will earn a class prize. 

If you have questions or need further information regarding a task please contact us via Class Dojo or Facebook. 

Keep safe and take care of each other. We look forward to welcoming you back to Moorcroft soon.

Year 1 had a very special visit from Willenhall Fire Station to find out more about the Great Fire of London and fire safety.

We learnt all about fire hazards in homes and how to stop, drop and roll if our clothes ever catch fire.

After that, we were in for a treat as we all got a turn using the hose!

A huge thank you to @WillenhallFire for a great afternoon.
