The Word

Today Year 3 went to The Word in South Shields. As it is December, to get us in the mood for Christmas we did lots of different Christmas activities. We visited Santa’s workshop and used apps to make our creations come alive.

This year, Key Stage One and Year Three joined together for our Christmas production, ‘Lights, Camel, Action!’ The children were fantastic and worked so hard to learn their lines, songs and dance routines. The costumes were brilliant and the show was amazing. Well done everyone!

Survival Day

In Year 3 we have been reading The Last Castaway where the characters become stranded on a desert island. This week we had our own adventure. We visited the beach and took part in a ‘Survival Day’ where we learnt how to survive on a desert island.

First we learnt how to build shelters to keep warm. Next we went foraging for food in the rock pools. Then we learnt how to start a fire using fire sticks so we could cook our food. It was a fun filled day from start to finish.

Year 3 World Book Day!

Year 3 had a great day celebrating World Book Day. Everyone had amazing costumes! We looked at The Famous Five’s Half Term Adventure. We created new book covers for some of the older Famous Five books and had our own Famous Five picnic. One of our favourite parts of the day was sharing books with Nursery children.

Science Club

At science club this week Year 3 and 4 have been learning about acids and alkalines. The children had to test different liquids to see if they changed colour. If the liquid changed to red it was an acid, if it went green it was neutral and if it went purple it was an alkaline.

We had a great time playing investigating liquids and are looking forward to next week!
