Can a fish take care of a book? Strange question! This week, we visited Gateshead Central library, where we thought about how to look after the books that we borrow.
We are working on some new ways to learn our spellings and spelling patterns. Today we are fitting our spellings into odd shaped boxes. We think you'll agree that from spellings, we have made art!
As you can see, Children in Need Day is one of the highlights of the Autumn Term. We even had a special visitor!
Tints and shades were employed in our art lesson today, when we mixed a base colour with while to lighten it or black to darken it.
This week, we have been experimenting with a program called sketchpad. As it was Halloween, some of us made some spooky pictures!
Year 3 children had their first ukulele lesson this week. What a great start!
It's the GBBO! Well, the Great Brighton Bake Off! This week we have been learning to follow a recipe and next week we will adapt our recipes.
The books bus came to school this week. Our teacher couldn't resist buying books for the class library too!

This week, we had a visit from four Newcastle University Street Scientists. They showed us some super cool things about science in two brilliant sessions. Take a look for your self!
What makes a biscuit, a biscuit? A very important question indeed, especially as Year 3/4 are going to be designing and baking their own. Of course to make great biscuits, we had to do some research first. Yum!
We are true historians in Year 3/4 as today we have had a visit from another history expert, Rosie. She talked to us about what life was like for the people of Gateshead in 1916, which was the year of the Bensham Tram Crash. We used our art and writing skills to produce some work that will be displayed in an exhibition in Newcastle.
Richard, better known as 'That History Bloke' came to visit us to start off our History work on the Bensham Tram Crash of 1916. First of all, we all joined the army! Afterwards, we headed out to Bensham to look for real history and find out where the tram Smash happened.
