Christmas 2017

December 20th, 2017 · No Comments · Other, Year Three

Year Three have been very busy during the last few weeks of term! Everyone worked so hard over the term so they celebrated all of their hard work by creating some wonderful Christmas crafts.
The children made paper chains, baubles, picture frames and chocolate Christmas trees, just to name a few! The class worked so hard and it was nice to relax and enjoy some Christmas activities. In the last week, the children had their Christmas party, watched some Christmas films and decorated some biscuits to eat during their party.

Father Christmas even came to visit and gave everyone a lovely present. Everyone in the class would like to say a BIG thank you to Father Christmas and his special helpers for their gifts!!

Watch the video to see some of the fantastic things that Year Three made!

UK Fast 2017

December 18th, 2017 · No Comments · Clubs, Computing, Digital Leader Blog, Office, Other, Whole School, Year Three

Last week, the Digital Leaders were lucky enough to go on a tour of the UK Fast building which is near our school. They were shown around the building by the wonderful Sax and were shown all of the fun rooms around the building. The children even got to use the slide which is on the side of the building!

The visit really inspired our Digital Leaders and they can’t wait to create a weekly newsletter in the new Cyber Cafe after Christmas!

Viking Presentations

November 20th, 2017 · No Comments · Other, Year Three

Over the past two weeks the children in Year Three have been working in pairs to create their own presentation about the Vikings. The children were asked to include as much information as they could remember from our topic lessons so far. Today, the pairs came to the front of the class and went through their presentations.

All of the pairs had worked so hard to create a detailed presentation with lots of informations and key facts. A lot of the children had never used the software before but tried so hard with their presentation, some even included pictures and animations!

Well done Year Three, I was so impressed!

Viking Longhouses

November 10th, 2017 · No Comments · Other, Year Three

Over the half-term break everyone in Year Three was given a challenge to make a poster about a Viking Longhouse or to build their very own model. The children all excelled themselves and produced some AMAZING models and posters!! Everyone came to the front to present their project to the rest of the class and to explain how they made it and who helped them. Myself and Miss Fallon were blown away by the detail and effort that has gone into all of these projects.

Have a look through our photographs to see everyones fantastic creations.

Thank you so much to everyone that helped create these wonderful projects.

Pre-Lunch Fun

October 9th, 2017 · No Comments · Other, Year Three

In Year Three, I always try to squeeze in a fun dance after all of our hard work! We’ve recently discovered a song that we love to dance along to just before we go to lunch. The children LOVE all of the different songs and dances that I’ve found and I’ll be uploading more throughout the year.

Enjoy our video!

World Book Day 2017

March 12th, 2017 · No Comments · Nursery, Reception, Year Five, Year Four, Year One, Year Six, Year Three, Year Two

Last week we all celebrated World Book Day. Miss Lynch started our day with a fantastic assembly where we learnt all about the importance of reading. Everyone had a brilliant time throughout the day talking about their favourite book and author. Some classes recreated the book cover of their favourite book, others wrote book reviews and Year Six went to read to the Nursery and Reception children.

At the end of the day everyone had the opportunity to parade their costume in front of the rest of the school. Everyone got involved and had a dance in the hall! Overall, it was a great day and we can’t wait to celebrate it again next year!
