Year 3


A group of Year 3 and Year 4 girls took part in the Gymnastics and Cheerleading Festival at the Gateshead Leisure Centre. It was brilliant to watch all the routines from the local primary and secondary schools. Here are some pictures of their wonderful performance.


In Year 3 the children have been creating abstract self-portraits in the style of Paul Klee. The boys and girls focused on use of hot and cold colours and enjoyed learning about abstract art.  


Years 3 and 4 performed their nativity production ‘Lights, Camel, Action!’ this week. The boys and girls sang, danced and acted brilliantly, showing what a talented group of children they really are!


All of the children enjoyed their Christmas lunch today. They ate their lunch of turkey and all the trimmings dressed in their Christmas jumpers. 


The children in Year 3 have been practising using written methods for addition and subtraction using a fortune teller. The boys and girls raced their partner to find the answer then checked if their answer was correct inside the fortune teller.


In Years 3 and 4 the boys and girls have been enjoying using the Accelerated Reader system. The children have been developing a love for reading and have been making super progress as a result!  


In Year 3, the boys and girls have been learning to write cinquain poems. The children analysed the features of the poem and planned their own version. The boys and girls worked in groups and used their plans to create a collaborative poem about a storm. Fantastic!  


In Year 3, the boys and girls have learned about fossilisation and explored the process through making their own fossils. The children used clay and plaster of paris so although they didn’t have to wait millions of years, a full week felt like an eternity.
