Year 3 enjoyed an afternoon of investigating rocks as Martin from Stoke-On-Trent Museum came into school to explain to the children all about rocks. They carried out two experiments and some children took the part as a rock exploding from a volcano, during a role play activity. The purpose of the experiment was to find the hardiest rocks and the ones which were most permeable.

Rainforest Animals & Cross Stitch Sewing

May 18th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

This term, as part of their ‘Rainforests’ topic, Year 3 children are learning how to cross stitch various rainforest animals – such as parrots, macaws and monkeys! Before beginning their cross stitch animal pictures, the children had to use a grid to design a chart so that they would know what colour threads to use on different parts of the binka. When you watch the videos, you will notice how relaxing the children are finding their sewing!

Palm Sunday

April 6th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I was so excited because someone special was coming to Jerusalem. Jesus was coming. I was going to see him. People were waving palm leaves. The sun blazed in the beautiful cloudy sky. Birds were singing in the fresh palm trees.

Suddenly, Jesus came down the green, steep hill. I was amazed. Blue shining eyes were looking at me. I was smiling at him. I put my cloak on the ground for him. I shouted, “Jesus! Hey, Jesus. Is it really you?” and I stroked his donkey. I felt amazed to be meeting him.


Mother’s Day CD

Year Three have decided to do something a bit different for Mother’s Day this year! The children came along to the ‘Little Monsters Radio Station’ to record the song ‘Don’t Forget To tell Your Mum You Love Her’. Then, a small group of Year 3 children burnt the recording to CD using Toast Titanium. The children are going to each put a CD into the Mother’s Day cards that they have been busy making.

Here is the recording of the song for you to listen to as well:

To Write A Story With A Roman Setting

March 25th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

There were little, soft clouds in the bright, blue sky. They floated slowly above the village. Little, stone huts stood silently on the long, grey path. In the middle of the village was a small, orange fire. In the corner there were horses ready to be free.

Marcus was helping his mother in the taven cleaning because he had nothing better to do. He had fox coloured hair and bright, blue eyes that shone in the sun light. He lived in the village with Artrectus his Grandfather and his mother.

That morning Marcus went to the tall, Roman fort. Marcia ran quickly towards him and they both went for a walk. Marcia was a young Roman girl. She had long, blonde shiny hair that fell down to her shoulders and she wore brown, leather sandles.

To Write A Story With A Roman Setting

Marcus and Marcia rode into the damp, deep forest. “What will you do with me?” Marcia cried.

“Shut up!” one of the men replied.

Marica struggled to get off the old, fat horse. Marcus dashed like lightening to keep up but he slipped and shouted, “Ouch!” He pulled himself back up and carried on running.

Eventually he got to a small corner in the village. There was a stone wall just big enough to to peek over. He saw little brick huts with thatched roofs. A tiny burning fire was in the middle of the village. Big, black horses stood straight like hills. Honey suckle is used to  tie up the horses. Marcus moved  to the left to look over the wall, there was a roast boar on the floor that the men were eating. “This boar is nice” the two men agreed. Two more boar ran across the village. “Get back here!”, the two fat men stomped after them. Inside one of the mud huts was Marcia. Marcus knew because he heard shouting.
