Djembe Drumming

On Thursday we had the amazing opportunity to all create music on a djembe drum with the help of Steve Rivers. We learnt how to play and hold the drum and played different repeated rhythms using call and response! It was a fabulous day of listening to, playing and creating music! Thank you Steve!

Finding Angles Around School

We went on a hunt around school with our right angle monsters to try and find some angles in the school playground. We found lots of right angles and some acute but found obtuse rather hard to find! Maybe we should look inside next time...

World Mental Health Day

KS2 joined in with BBC Teach's live stream about mental wellbeing. We learnt about our emotions and developing a growth mindset. Class 3 used the Class Dojo video to draw 'The Beast' inside us if we feel certain emotions like anger, embarrasment or anxiety and how to deal with this.

Worry Dolls

After reading Silly Billy by Anthony Browne, we made our own worry dolls out of pipe cleaners and thread. We loved making them and now we have taken them home so we can share our worries with them.

Becoming Archaeologists 

In Class 3, to start our Autumn topic off with a bang, Miss Grant brought in some historic poo so we could dissect and find out about Eric the Roman, Eric the Viking and Eric the Tudor's diet. We used our maths and English skills to read the clues and measure the sizes. It was a little bit gross but we found out a lot about what they ate.

Ancient Greek Olympics

 

To celebrate the end of our Groovy Greek topic we created our own Olympic games. We did lots of activities including running races, javelin, discus and long jump using bean bags as weights to help propel ourselves forward. We had a great time and won 5 points for first place and 2 points for second place.

Topic Celebration

 

To celebrate the end of our wonderful topic "Inside the Pyramids" we created a performance that showed some of the work we had created and the information and facts we had learnt. It was great to share this with our parents and the rest of the school!

Investigating the Digestive System

On Monday 14th January, Miss Grant demonstrated the digestive system! She used household items to show the different parts; including a sandwich bag to represent the stomach and a pair of tights to represent the small intestine. We had a lot of fun and created some amazing writing even if it was a bit gross!

Helena Duggan Skype

In December, Year 3 and 4 had the great opportunity to skype the author of "A Place Called Perfect" and her new book "The Trouble With Perfect", Helena Duggan. She read us a chapter of A Place Called Perfect and then answered our questions about being an author, how to write books and her life as an author. We had a great time and she even sent us activity sheets and stickers!
