Y3D had a fabulous time visiting the Great North Museum to find out lots about fossils.

We then had a lovely stroll along Northumberland Street to visit the wonderful Fenwick’s Festive Window to link in with our current Christmas Novel ‘The Snowman’. The children really enjoyed it and it was lovely to see their faces light out with the great design and moving windows.

Feliz Navidad and Merry Christmas!

In Year 3 and 4 we have been connecting with other cultures. We found out that some Spanish customs and traditions at Christmas time are similar to our own. Then we made cards and baubles to reflect what our local area can look like in Winter. We will be exchanging these with a school in Spain we have connections with.

Mr Donnelly visited Wellbeing Club this week and taught the group some greetings in Spanish. Pupils played a game to reinforce the language. They will use these new skills to communicate with Spanish pupils.

 

Health and Well-being Week in Year 3!

We have had a fabulous time in school this week. We have enjoyed many activities from hula-hoping, salsa dancing, running and making healthy snacks. On Thursday, we really enjoyed listening to Elizabeth, our inspirational speaker, who competed in the Paralympic Games. We hope you enjoy looking at some of our work that we have brought home from Children in Need Day and Anti-bullying week. We hope you enjoy looking at some of our photos, from Y3W.

Remember Remember…

This week Y3D have really enjoyed learning all about Guy Fawkes!
We have worked together in our guided reading sessions to solve the Gunpowder plot we had 4 mysterious men who were framed for the gunpowder plotting plan and we read through their backgrounds carefully and studies their movements and eventually convicted Guy Fawkes for the main plotter!

We have also worked extremely hard to make sculptures of our own bonfires and we are currently writing very detailed instructions to inform other children in our school how we made our sculptures! We have came up with some fabulous subheadings and imperative verbs whilst writing our instructions.

Well done Y3D!

A brilliant start to Y3D’s Autumn term!

Y3D have had a fantastic start to the Autumn term. This half term we have showed very positive attitudes to new topics we have covered and have enjoyed learning new concepts. We have particularly enjoyed our recent topic in English ‘The Twits’ where we have written some fabulous playscripts. We have also enjoyed learning out the stone age in history – take a look at some photos of us having fun this half term!
