Superstar Dancers

This week we have had a visit from a dance instructor who did an African dance workshop with the children. The children really enjoyed it and learnt lots of African dance moves.


Class 3 had a fantastic time at Gibside this week and enjoyed lots of outdoor fun. They participated in shelter building, searched for mini beasts, and created beautiful natural artwork using things like sticks, mud and flowers. 🌿🌸🌼☀️🐞🕷🐛🦋

Summer Poems

Class 3 wrote some fantastic Summer senses poems this morning using lots of adjectives, nouns and verbs. ☀️

Identifying Trees

Class 3 have been learning all about different types of trees and labelling the parts of a tree. The children enjoyed identifying the trees in our school grounds. They found beech, sycamore, elder, hawthorn and birch trees! 🌲🌳🌿

Beautiful Butterflies

Our butterflies are fully grown and ready to fly! 🦋

Class 3 have absolutely loved watching their caterpillars go through the different life cycle stages to become beautiful butterflies. They all had a chance to hold the butterflies this afternoon before we set them free.

The children also did a fantastic whole school assembly this week, which was all about how to be healthy and live a healthy lifestyle.

Butterfly Life Cycle

What an amazing life cycle experience we are going through at the moment. Our caterpillars have spun into cocoons! It won’t be long until we see some beautiful butterflies emerging. 🦋

Openzone at The Word

Class 3 have had a fantastic time at the Openzone. The children have created their own Lego movies using the StikBot app and enjoyed watching their videos back.

The children also built Lego objects and programmed them to do lots of different things using the WeDo2 app. They were able to add flashing lights and funny sounds. They even made their Lego objects move!

Party at the Palace

Class 3 were visited by a lady from the Bigfoot Arts Education Company. They learnt all about the King’s Coronation and enjoyed dancing and singing some songs. They also had lots of fun designing cakes for a coronation party.

Planting Bean Seeds

The children planted bean seeds on Tuesday as part of our topic all about plants. The next day they found a ‘Top Secret’ envelope in the classroom – some children from Class 2 had snuck into our classroom to look at our bean seeds and left us a letter asking us to write them a set of instructions telling them how to plant their own bean seeds.

Class 3 did a fantastic job writing their instructions and included lots of imperative verbs, adverbs and time conjunctions! ⭐️

Saint George and the Dragon

As St George’s Day is on Sunday, Class 3 did a fantastic assembly all about the story of George and the Dragon. The acting was brilliant – well done, everyone! 😊
