Y3W Visit Souter Lighthouse

As part of our Science topic Y3W have been learning about light. We have spent time finding out about different sources of light and how light is used in our everyday lives. We have really enjoyed this topic and the investigations we have carried out.

This week, as part of our learning we visited Souter Lighthouse. This visit gave us a chance to find out even more about light is used in our own community. We were amazed to find out that Souter Lighthouse was the first Lighthouse to generate electricity. We learned lots of other facts about the lighthouse, the role of the lighthouse keeper’s and got to climb right to the top of the lighthouse… climbing over 100 stairs! We even made our own lighthouses by creating closed circuits.

The children were fantastic and we all had a great day.

Here are some photo’s from our visit.

 

Word Millionaires

We were delighted today to present these three pupils with very prestigious ‘Word Millionaire’ trophies in assembly. Amie, Evie and Ashlee have been such enthusiastic and dedicated readers, both in and out of school that they have read over one million words through our Accelerated Reader program. We are very proud of them and hope to be awarding more Word Millionaires soon.

The Great Big School Clean 2018

The School Council led our Great Big School Clean assembly on Friday 9th March. They also took part in a school litter pick and found a surprisingly large amount of litter! There was a mixture of different materials – plastic, cardboard, foil and fabric.

We know that litter should be recycled wherever possible. Each class wrote a poem about litter to submit to the Eco Schools Litter-acy  competition. We are really proud of all of the entries. Fingers crossed!

 

No Smoking Day 2018

The children asked and answered lots of questions during our whole school No Smoking Day  assembly. Their posters and wishes show that they feel well informed from the activities they joined in with that day.

School Council Litter Picking Rota

Following on from The Big School Clean Up, our School Council decided that they’d like to make this a regular event.

Mrs Parker, our school caretaker, kindly offered to help the School Council pick litter twice weekly in the school grounds.

This week it’s Year 1’s turn. They were delighted to find a butterfly garden ornament in the bushes, which they are going to upcycle.

Art Morning in Y3E

We enjoyed spending our morning doing Art! Unfortunately, our local artist Zoe was too poorly to join us but we’re sure she will be thrilled with our paintings!

We began by discussing Spring time, and what we might see and do. Then we sketched our designs, before colouring and painting. We had a great morning!
