What a Wonderful Wow day we have had. We discovered lots of artifacts on the Trim trail this morning which we brought inside to take a closer look! We think they might be from the Stone Age! Here are some pictures of us examining these interesting artifacts.
Here are our memories from 2018-2019. What a great year we have had!
Class 7 and 8 had a special visitor this week. Nicky Rafferty is a story teller and she came to tell the children all about Samuel Fox, who founded The Nottingham Building Society. She also told us about a project called 'Story Dens'. Several city parks , including our local Vernon Park, will have free activities during the summer holidays in the 'Story Dens'. All the children have made bunting about their favourite stories and this will be proudly displayed in Vernon Park. Maybe you could visit the park in the holidays and join in with one of the many free activities that they will have on offer!
What a amazing last week we've had. Really busy but brilliant! We've been on camp to Walesby and had an Excellent Egyptian day where lots of the children had great outfits. Here are some pictures for you all to see!
We had a fun filled active maths lesson last Friday with our mascot MOTTY. Here are a few pictures!
All of year 3 are loving our first summer topic. The Egyptians. So far we've learnt about Howard Carter discovering the Tomb of Tutankhamun, turned our side portraits into pharaohs and written our own Egyptian adventure stories. We are looking forward to our Ancient Egyptian day on Friday the 24th of May!
What a fantastic topic this has been! We've created our own creatures, looked at habitats, learnt about our skeleton and written a fantastic story about flying pigs!
To add to this, the Year 3 team were blown away by the amazing homework created. Thank you so much for all the effort put in at home!
It's the New Year and we are already working really hard in Year3. For our WOW day we worked in groups to create our own 'Curious Creatures'. We have used our mythical creatures as a basis for writing poetry. The children are really enjoying our new shared reading text 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl.
We had so much for making Volcanoes erupt last week!
Here are some of the pictures.
What a brilliant start to our second half term we have had. We started off with our WOW day where we made some lovely looking weather stations! We have also started our book for the term in shared reading which is 'The Wizard of Oz' which includes the powerful cyclone.
Here are some pictures from our WOW day!
Next term we are going to be dealing with some crazy, natural disasters that happen on earth. So get your raincoats on and your evacuation kit ready, as our topic for next term is Wild Weather and Extreme Earth!
What an amazing way to end our Stone Age topic. We have created Stone Age jewellery, played music from the Stone Age, made some tasty Stone Age smoothies and even built our own mini Stone Age Settlements. Here are some pictures from our fantastic morning!
We have changed our Numeracy Workshop to the Monday 12th of November, sorry for any inconvenience this has caused!
What a Fantastic start to the Stone Age topic we've had. We had an amazing 'WOW' day where all the children found some fossils from the past, under the trim trail. We've emailed Professor Fossilino who told us they were from the Stone Age! We have also created some amazing cave paintings which look beautiful on our displays.
We are looking forward to the year ahead and getting to know the children. Here are a few things you need to know about the following term.
