After Richard heard that we were learning about the Ancient Greeks, he came to visit us. He came dressed as an Ancient Greek and brought lots of interesting things with him for us to look at. He had armour, pots, instruments and writing tools. We used the writing tools to write our names using the Greek alphabet.
Matthew, from the If You Care Share charity, came to see us. We talked about our emotions and how we can control them. Matthew taught us that mental health, keeping a healthy mind, is just as important as physical health, keeping a healthy body. We learned that it is O.K not to feel happy all of the time and Matthew gave us some tips on controlling our anger; taking deep breaths, asking for time to think, using a stress ball, exercising and physical activity and even shouting into a pillow.
We are so lucky! This terms attendance trip was a session on the Party Bus. We have had so much fun dressing up with wigs and glasses and showing off our dance moves. Miss Dalley and Mrs Cummings joined in too!
Excitingly, the Book Bus visited our school today. We were very eager to board and take a look around the variety of fiction and non-fiction books.
Mrs. Cummings took us to the school library this week. She explained how the books were organised and how we could use this to find certain books more easily. This came in useful as she gave us a list of books to find. We learned about the Dewy System and used it to help us put the non-fiction books back.
We enjoyed an energetic taster of Judo when the Destination Judo instructors came to show us some moves!
Our adults were tested when they came to Year 3D! Miss. Dalley had found lots of fun and exciting ways to practise our times tables and we got to share them with our grown ups.
Christmas Party Day
Joining in with the KS2 Christmas party was amazing!! Singing, dancing, eating and even a few games kept us all in Christmas spirit.
Remembrance Day Poppies
In school, we have been talking about how we remember veterans of the World Wars. As part of our Golden Time activities, we made remembrance day poppies using clay. We had so much fun and got a little messy - all while practising our fine motor skills of course!
We had lots of fun taking part in a carousel of activities in the hall. Some of us were very tired after them!
To celebrate Harvest we visited Rev. Meg at St.Chad's Church and performed our Harvest songs. We have been collecting food donations to share with our local food banks.
