Week Commencing 17th January 2022

A standard Monday morning was thrown into chaos when we learnt aliens had landed! A foil covered room, along with the items inside it, followed by foil through the school (with green slime splattered in sections) allowed our imaginations to run wild, until the CCTV footage confirm it to be aliens. We incorporated this into our English topic this week, generating some amazing descriptive language and powerful verbs. 

Week Commencing 10th January 2022

This week we have had a fun science lesson, exploring how rocks are formed using compression and heat - ask the children to describe some of the outcomes to you!

Star of the week was Arisha because of her constant hard work and how she always follows the core values! 
Well done Arisha!

This week 3GR looked at other civilisations, along with Ancient Egypt, that we have been studying. We wrote down as many of the other civilisations as we could remember, and stuck them on a 'lucky' person from each table!

Week Commencing 27th September 2021

We have had a very busy week, but our highlight has to be History. We have been studying Ancient Egypt and this week we have been looking at mummification.  Did you know that the Egyptians used to bury their dead with their personal belongings, such as gold treasures and even their pets! Also, the more important the person was, the bigger the tomb (pyramid).


We had great fun mummifying one of our class friends. Just check out the photos to see how the process took place.


Please note, that no pupils, or indeed pets, were harmed as a result of our mummification lesson! In fact, our mummified friend got up and walked! 😳 Not sure that that happened in ancient times!

Week Commencing 20th September 2021

In 3GR, we learnt about how and why the pyramids were created, before transferring our new knowledge onto paper pyramids we built.

3GR had a tasty afternoon on Friday, tasting a variety of breads before they create their own sandwich in the coming weeks.

We have started the year wonderfully in 3GR. The children have settled straight back in to school life, being so well behaved and demonstrating lovely manners. We have learnt the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and started to plan our own stories. We also had lots of fun learning about the River Nile in our Ancient Egyptian topic too.
