Year 3 Kreative Kitchen
As part of our Healthy Lifestyles Week, children were treated to a Kreative Kitchen workshop where they were able to prepare and eat foods from the Mediterranean. Children in Year 3 had a fantastic time and tried foods they had not tasted before – as you can see from some of the expressions, the olives didn’t go down too well!
Year 3 Tag Rugby Tournament
The bad weather may have cancelled the Year 3 Rugby Festival at Whitburn School but it did not stop us holding our own Rugby Tournament at Biddick Hall Junior School. The children in Year 3 were split into six teams of nine and played against each other in a number of matches, giving them the opportunity to show off the skills learned during their coaching sessions. They battled against the rain and Team 2 were declared the overall winners.
Year 3 visited Arbeia Roman Fort to end our topic on the Romans. We had an amazing time – children were given the opportunity to take part in an archaeological dig to find objects from the past; they were put through their paces in soldier training by the Centurion, Maximus and also sketched artefacts from the museum to produce a frieze for school.
During Multicultural week Year 3 have studied the country India. They spent a wonderful afternoon learning a Bollywood dance.
Year 3 had a great time re-enacting the story of Rama and Sita to help us to understand why the festival of Diwali is so important to the Hindu faith.
As part of our Stone Age topic Year 3 enjoyed a half day session with a visitor. We painted cave paintings, played a game to understand the food eaten during the period and studied artefacts from a typical Stone Age house.
As part of our RE topic we had a visit from someone who told us all about Divali. We even had the chance to wear some traditional costumes!
