Greek Day

On Thursday Year 3 and 4 were transformed into Ancient Greek Gods, Goddesses and Soldiers for the day!  We had great fun making a Greek Salad, taking part in a treasure hunt for mythical creatures, playing Ancient Greek Olympic sports, making a water clock and finally  making an ancient Greek vase from clay.  The children had a great time!

Durham Dash

On Wednesday evening, 31 pupils from KS2 completed in the Durham Dash at Beamish Museum alongside 33 other schools!  The children did amazingly well, with our school winning 4 medals!

Mohamed Time to shine

Mohamed shared an interesting and detailed presentation all about his passion for football. He clearly loves this sport and has enjoyed many opportunities to play matches around the UK. Well done, Mohamed!

 

Adam Bushnell visit 

Year 3 and 4 thoroughly enjoyed working with Adam Bushnell this week. In the morning we created our own mythical beasts, then used adjectives and adverbs to describe their appearance and behaviour. In the afternoon we designed our mythical heroes and used AI to generate their names and attributes. We also had the opportunity to wear armour and handle weapons. 

Ali's Time to Shine

Ali had spent weeks preparing for his Time to Shine and that was made clear today during his fabulous presentation entitled 'Me in my World'. He worked so hard to create a PowerPoint along with supporting handouts for the class to help him share with us more about his talents, beliefs and passions in life. He even added a little humour with an trick blue screen of death - Mrs Chadwick was worried for a while! It was wonderful to learn more about you Ali. Keep shining like the star that you are. 🌟

Y3 & 4 Science

Year 3 and 4 had great fun in Science working in pairs to create a magnetic maze game!  After designing and sticking down our ‘lolly stick’ maze we used a paper clip and a magnet (underneath the card) to pull the magnetic object from the starting point to the finish line.

After some practise turns we timed each other to see who could move the paper clip, using the magnet, from start to finish the fastest!

Year 3 & 4 History lesson

In a recent history lesson, Tigers enjoyed taking part in a simulation activity to see how important trade was for Ancient Egypt to become powerful and how much it depended on being able to produce grain to feed its people and to export. We quickly learnt how dependent the Egyptians were on the success of the Nile flooding and that some years it was great, but other years it failed them.

Nikunj’s Time to Shine

This week, Nikunj told us all about his little sister’s naming ceremony, traditionally known as Namakarana, that took place when he visited India recently. It was wonderful to learn more about his Hindu beliefs and customs. We hope your sister enjoyed her special day, Nikunj!

Y3 & 4 Science

Year 3 and 4 had great fun in Science working in pairs to create a magnetic maze game!  After designing and sticking down our ‘lolly stick’ maze we used a paper clip and a magnet (underneath the card) to pull the magnetic object from the starting point to the finish line.

After some practise turns we timed each other to see who could move the paper clip, using the magnet, from start to finish the fastest!

Year 3 & 4 History lesson

In a recent history lesson, Tigers enjoyed taking part in a simulation activity to see how important trade was for Ancient Egypt to become powerful and how much it depended on being able to produce grain to feed its people and to export. We quickly learnt how dependent the Egyptians were on the success of the Nile flooding and that some years it was great, but other years it failed them.
