Why not have a go at this digital escape room with a Harry Potter theme.
On Thursday 5th March we celebrated World Book Day. This year’s theme was ‘Share a Million Stories’. We began the day by discussing the importance and benefits of sharing a story and who we could share a story with. The rest of the day was spent completing book related activities and completing a school competition. As part of the day we either wore our pyjamas or dressed up as a book character, we were very impressed with the children’s efforts and enthusiasm.
Discovery Zoo came into school as part of Maths, Science and Technology week and worked with each class sharing a variety of animals with the children.
Two teams of children attended a benchball tournament at Boldon school. The children worked well in their teams and were excellent representatives of our school.
As part of ‘Creative Week,’ Ian from Doodle Bug came to Biddick Hall Junior School to work on ‘Growth Mindset.’ He taught everyone how to draw and many of us surprised ourselves with our end results. He taught us to be resilient, patient and to persevere even when we find things tricky. Always believe in the power of YET! I can’t do it YET!
Year 3 are loving Creative Week! Today Year 3 were introduced to the concept of font design. We explored how font type can change the way words are presented, and how we can take inspiration from many different sources to invent something new. Using a mixture of twigs, grasses, nuts, bolts and screws, the children have developed their observational drawing and mark-making skills to produce very effective font designs. We are really pleased with the results.
Year 3 have looked at the work of cartoonist Carl Giles. We then looked at how to create facial expression and movements. We then created our own cartoon scenes.
Year 3 had a great afternoon at a Multiskills event at Temple Park.
We took part in lots of different game activities including a treasure hunt, skittles, throwing and catching as well as practicing our jumping skills.
Today we held a special attendance assembly. Any child who had 100% attendance in the Autumn Term received a bronze certificate and a bronze wristband. congratulations to all!
Year 3 had a wonderful visit to Palace Green in Durham to consolidate their knowledge about the Stoneage to Ironage period of history which they have been studying in class.
They took part in a museum trail on the different periods and enjoyed trying their hands at weaving.
They looked at, drew and described historical artefacts as well as designing and making their own coin.
Finally the children became osteo archeologists and investigated a historical skeleton. They pieced together clues to determine who the skeleton could have belonged to.
