Thank you so much to all the parents/grandparents who came to church this morning to watch our wonderful Christmas performance. The children sang carols, modern songs, recited poems and made everyone laugh! Mrs Russell said 'I bet this is the only Christmas performance in the World which mentions a Greggs Festive bake!'   

Well done Year 3! We were so proud of you all.

Great British athlete 

 

We were lucky enough to have Diani Walker visit us who is a sprinter. We took part in a circuit with her which was really fast! She told us what it took to be an athlete and how we could do it too!

Bronze Age burial 

 

We investigated different artefacts today from a Bronze Age burial. We had to be history detectives and find out who it was. We discovered it was the Amesbury Archer and found out more about him.

Can we help out? 

 

We had visitors come and talk to us about giving back to people at

Christmas. They told us about the elderly who don’t have anyone at

Christmas and can feel quite sad. They asked us to bring in gifts for them

so they can open them at Christmas smiley what a lovely idea!

Great North Museum 11/11/19

Year 3 have had a super day at the Great North Museum. We linked our Science and History together. We spent lots of time in the Ice Age to Iron age gallery looking at all of the amazing artefacts the museum had to show. We took part in a workshop that linked Rocks and Light, we learnt how different animals use colours to camouflage themselves and how to mimic other animals.

We were very impressed with the way the children behaved! Well done everyone.

Soil Pudding


We learnt about the layers of the soil today. Then we decided to  make our own. We used a cookie for the bedrock, marshmallows for the rocky soil, custard for the subsoil, crushed biscuit for the topsoil, green sprinkles for the grass and strawberry laces for the worms! 

It even tasted nice...smiley

Stone Age Day 

 

Wow! We had an amazing day for our Stone Age Day. The children absolutely loved it and enjoyed the different activities. Throughout the day we made roundhouses, made stone age jewellery, make flint stones from soap, cooked a real stone age meal with beef and fish, baked pitta bread and had a campfire. Well done year 3!
