Trip to France 2020

France Trip 2020

As you will know from our letter in February, we are planning to offer Year 4 the opportunity of a day trip to the Montreuil area of France in June 2020. By this time Year 4 will have been learning French for two years and it is a great chance to put some language into practice! The trip will take place on a Saturday and will cost £97 (exact price/date tbc in September). The children will travel by coach and Eurotunnel, and will visit: a bakery to take part in pastry and bread making workshops (in French); a local town for lunch, and then a chocolate factory. The trip is booked through Schools Into Europe, and will be run by Kingsley staff volunteering their time. It is entirely optional. To attend this trip, your child would need a valid passport with at least 6 months left on it in June. The cost of this is not included in the trip, and any special requirements for travel, e.g. a visa, would be your responsibility to provide although of course we will help where possible.

You will receive letters in September asking if you would like your child to go on the trip, with details of deposits and the payment schedule. We will make sure that you can pay in instalments through Parentpay, over the autumn term, if you wish. We are letting you know now so that you can discuss this over the summer.

Many thanks from the MFL Team

Thank you

Thank you for all your hard work and support this year. We have had an amazing group of Year 3 children that we have been so lucky to teach.

We are very proud of all the children and what they have achieved this year!

We hope you have a fantastic summer and wish all our children the very best for Year 4.

Next week we are going to be planning and writing our own Greek Myths! As well as this, we will be continuing to investigate plants and look at what they need to live and grow.


Over the next week we will be revisiting some of the work we have done over the year to consolidate the children’s knowledge ready for Year 4.

This Week’s Learning


During our Topic this week we have been reading ‘Odysseus’ and learning about his adventures. We wrote our own class poem using expanded noun phrases and alliteration. As well as this, we have been learning about plants and the different names for parts of a plant.


We have been finishing off measurement. We looked at weight and volume this week and measured different things! As well as this, we have been using addition and subtraction to work out number and word problems.
