As part of Creative Week, Year 3 children had the opportunity to visit the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle to take part in a Thomas Bewick inspired Printing Workshop. The children had great fun creating their impressive prints and enjoyed their activity trail around the gallery.
On Thursday 25th January, 18 Year 3 children visited Boldon School to take part in a bench ball tournament. They all tried extremely hard and showed great sportsmanship and enthusiasm. Overall, both teams finished in 2nd place. Everyone had a great time and staff were very proud of their fantastic effort.
Our Year 3 and 4 children loved performing their Christmas performance to all their parents and carers.
This term, Year 3 have been studying Hinduism in RE and had the amazing opportunity to take part in a Hindu workshop where we learned about Diwali, the Festival of Light. Some of us even got the chance to dress up in fantastic costumes to act out the story of Rama and Sita. A fantastic time had by all!
This week, Year 3 visited The Word to take part in a Lego WeDo Programming Workshop. The children thoroughly enjoyed building Lego models and then programming them to make them move.
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.
