Black History Day in Year 3

In Year 3 this morning, we have learnt lots about Black History Month and why this month is so important. We spoke for a long time about how it would make us feel if we were told we were inferior to other people. We then learnt all about Rosa Parks and the brave story of how she made the decision to not give up her seat on the bus to a white person. We then wrote some incredible diary entries from her perspective.

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!

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!

Change Starts with Us!

Today in Juniper class we completed a number of fun activities for anti-bullying day, based around the theme ‘change starts with us’. In one activity, we said unkind, hurtful things to an apple and then, kind, positive things to another apple. We discussed how saying these unkind things made us feel sad and sorry for the apple. When we cut the apples open, the apple that we had said unkind things to was broken and bruised whereas the other apple was healthy. We immediately understood the impact that our words can have on people. The bruises and broken bits showed us what happens inside each one of us when somebody mistreats us with their words and actions.
