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.


Y3E Visit Souter Lighthouse

On Tuesday we had a fantastic trip to Souter Lighthouse! We enjoyed our tour and learnt lots of facts about the Lighthouse, and how Lighthouse Keepers lived during that time. After lunch, we enjoyed learning about electricity and made our own lighthouses with a switch to turn it on and off. Here are some pictures of our work:

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!

Fantastic Attendance in Y3E!

We enjoyed celebrating on Thursday as 19 children in our class had 100% attendance for November! Here we are with our 100% attendance stickers. We hope to have Toffee Bear after Christmas!

Woodland Trust Project

Each class, from nursery to Year  6, has been involved in planting trees delivered by the Woodland Trust. We’ve planted them in our yard, in the far field and around the car park. It has been a wonderful opportunity for everyone to work as part of a team and to help the environment. Toffee even joined some of the children. Can you spot him?

We can’t wait to see the trees grow!

Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Sock Day!

This year’s anti-bullying week got off to a fantastic start with our school’s involvement in Odd Sock Day , organised by the Anti-bullying Alliance.

First, the children were involved in an assembly, where their views on how they are kept safe in school and suggestions for developing this further were taken into account.

After taking some ‘creative’ photographs of the vast array of children’s socks, we talked about being unique – All Different, All Equal.

We will be entering our photographs in an Odd Socks Day Competition on Twitter – we are proud to be All different and All Equal.
