Year 3 visit The Word.

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 6 Greek Pots

We have discussed the ways in which we know about people who lived in Ancient Greek times.  Year 6 researched, designed and made Greek pots.  When they are dry, we will be painting and decorating them to show aspects of Ancient Greek life.

The children took part in a range of activities led by professional coaches, these included: Gymnastics, Football, Rugby, Skipping, Boxing, Dance and Hula Hooping. Both the children and the staff had a fantastic day and it was lovely to see the children taking part in sport confidently and enthusiastically.

Year 3 Kreative Kitchen

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!

Gibside

On Monday 17th July Year 5 went on a trip to the National Trust property Gibside.

Year 3 Tag Rugby Tournament

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.
