Welcome to Willow Class!
Class Teacher - Mr Wearmouth
Teaching Assistants Mrs Huggins/Miss Geoghegan
The children will receive 3 pieces of home work each Friday. They will need to complete maths, literacy and spellings over the weekend and return it by the following Wednesday.
P.E - The class will participate in sessions on a Thursday afternoon. They will require full P.E kit with appropriate footwear. For the first half term the children will be swimming, and therefore require a costume and towel. A reminder that children must not wear ear rings on swimming days.
The Amazing Egyptians
This half term, the children in Willow class will be learning all about the amazing Egyptians. We will be exploring the country, it's landscape and how it has changed over time. The children have planned the topic and want to learn all about the mummies, Pharaohs and the pyramids.
Can you beat the Egyptian quiz master?
Rocks and Soils
In Science Willow class have been learning all about rocks and soils. We have explored different kinds of rocks and how they are formed. During class planning, the children decided they wanted to learn all about fossils and how they are made. In the weeks gone by, we explored this process and today we even got to make our own fossils. Stay tuned to find out how they turned out.

As part of our North East history fortnight, the children have been looking at the history of Hartlepool. We have explored the bombing of the town in World War One, the HMS Trincomalee, which is now docked in the Maritime museum and explored how the town has changed over the years. The children enjoyed their trip and have been very interested in the tale of the monkey hanging.
Our topic for the summer term is The Romans
We will be learning about both Ancient and Modern Rome and comparing both to our lives in Britain.

Every Monday afternoon, we have been learning to play the recorder with Mr Barker . We are getting so good that we were able to show off our new skills for friends and family during assembly.

Newcastle Climbing Centre
We visited Newcastle Climbing Centre in Byker with Year 3 to end our Mighty Mountains topic.
We were all extremely brave and everyone had a try...some even made it to the very top!
Measuring in Maths
We have been using different equipment to measure in our maths lessons; rulers and tape measures for length; litres and millilitres for capacity and grams and kilograms for weight.
We are also beginning to convert measurements by scaling up and down.
In our science lessons this term, we have been discovering more about sound.
We made telephones using paper cups and string and saw how the sound travels through the string when it is pulled tight. This makes the string vibrate which creates the sound!
Our trip to Beamish
We had a great day at Beamish where we learned even more about The Victorians.
We had a school lesson by a strict Victorian teacher, explored what it was like down the mine and visited the different shops from The Victorian period.
