Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy

Years 3 & 4

Meeting a Mountaineer


Today we loved learning about mountain climbing from a real life mountain climber! It was so interesting to hear how she started climbing, where she has climbed, how she climbs and learning more about mountains. We loved learning about her equipment and looking at it. The OS maps were so detailed!

Children in Need

This year we work spotty or yellow clothes to raise money for Children in Need.  We also decorated cupcakes and had Pudsey visit us to join in with our special celebration collective worship!

Church Visits


We really enjoyed our trip to the church today to see Father John. We got to explore within the church and ask lots of questions about what we could see. We learnt lots about Father John and the church and can’t wait for our next visit. 


Year 3

 Misty Mountains, Winding Rivers


We started our topic with a trip to Snipedales to explore the rivers. We learnt about the different parts of a river, how rivers flow, what happens in a river and walked along it. We also went into the river to see what we could find and to measure how wide it is, the temperature and the depth. 

Bottoms, Burps and Bile End of Topic Wow!

We took part in 'snack off' to see which team could design, make and evaluate the best snack according to our design criteria.  The judges came and decided on our winners!

NFU Harvest Assembly

We took part in the NFU's big assembly where we learnt how pizzas are made.  We found out where the different ingredients come from and we were able to visit the fields, farms, dairy and factory virtually during the lesson.  We then all made our own pizzas using the ingredients we had seen.

Burps, Bottoms and Bile WOW Day


Today we had our Topic WOW Day with Asda Steve! He came in and talked to us about how to keep our teeth healthy by eating and drinking things with less sugar in. We learnt that the recommended maximum daily amount of sugar for our age is 5 spoons. Did you know that a muffin contains 6 spoonfuls of sugar and a bottle of coke contains 11 spoons of sugar!

We also tried some foods that are good for our teeth including, celery, carrot sticks, humus and cheese.
