General Notices

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. 

Hartlepool's History

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.

Recorder Lessons

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.

Watch our video clip to see us in action...can you name that tune?

 

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.
