A small step towards the normal running of school happened today with letters going out to parents of Year 3 children about after school clubs. We are starting with Year 3 children this term and monitoring how this goes. Hopefully, we will see the return of after school clubs for more of our year groups soon.
Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their Wow day today, linked to their topic ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile’. The highlight was decorating their own vests to show the digestive system and then creating ‘poo’ in the classroom!
Today the children have taken part in a range of sporting activities to raise money for Sports Relief 2020. The money will support people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world. Year 6 Sports Ambassadors, Mrs Welch and Mr Stroud organised a carousel of sports activities ranging from the traditional egg and spoon race to hockey. The children thoroughly enjoyed there sessions and showed great sportsmanship.
The Year 3 classes had a fabulous time at the River Stour this week. Luckily the weather was kind to them and they were able to complete some brilliant activities.
Ahead of the trip to the River Stour, the children in Year 3 have been learning about the water cycle. They even created their own water cycles in action!
Year 3 set up experiments to see if they could recreate the water cycle with great success!
Year 3 had their WOW day for their ‘Flow’ topic. They completed four activities:
- Waterwise – a special guest worked with us to gain a better understanding about the water that we use.
- Painting – we created water paintings having been inspired by Claude Monet’s work.
- Science – we tested the ph levels of water from different sources.
- Music – we made water themed pieces using a range of instruments.
Some excellent calculating of perimeter in Year 3 today. The children were able to combine lots of their mathematical knowledge and understanding. Fantastic explanations!
Y3 have been experimenting with digestion today, creating their own stomachs, complete with contents!
