UFOh no!

This morning on her way to work Miss Bennett was horrified to see an alien spaceship zoom over Tanners Wood. Year three went to investigate and were amazed when they discovered a strange, green egg in the KS1 playground. Where did the egg come from? What is the strange noise that keeps coming from the sky? Where is the UFO now? Year 3 will continue to report on the incident and hopefully more information will be revealed soon…

Year 3 Fun Run

This afternoon year 3 travelled to St Catherine’s school to take part in a fun run. The children all showed great determination and sportsmanship. Congratulations to Lola who came 3rd in the girls race and to Freddie and Zac who came 1st and 2nd in the boys race, both across all three schools. Well done everyone!

Key Steps 1 and 2 Gymnastics

Y1,2 3 and 4 pupils had the opportunity to take part in a gymnastics competition. We had been practising at lunchtime and entertaining the pupils in the packed lunch hall. They were extremely excited. It was our first time attending this event and we didn’t know what to expect. We took part in the vault and floor routines. We tried really hard and Y1/2 came 5th and Y3/4 came 8th. Well done children! 

RE workshop

Y3 have had Mrs Bastable come in to teach them stories from Jesus’s life. Today, we looked at the story of Zaccheus and how Jesus loves everyone, that everyone deserves love and can change their behaviour. We thought about how Zaccheus’s behaviour changed from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Ancient Egyptian Workshop

This week Juniper class stepped back in time to Ancient Egypt! We discovered lots of facts about the process of mummification and listened to many stories told to us by famous Egyptian figures. Unfortunately, whilst in the tomb, we were cursed! However, by working hard and completing all of the activities we managed to lift the curse and be freed…we think!

Year 3 Circuits

Last week, both Larch and Juniper took part in a circuit challenge. Not only did we practise our sport skills (throwing, dribbling, javelin, etc) but we worked on our communication and ability to work as a team. Miss Reynolds and Miss Bennett were very impressed with the mature behaviour they witnessed. Well done Year 3!
