When investigating Ancient Greek theatre year 6 watched a clip and discussed the differences between modern and Ancient Greek theatre. They then researched Greek theatre masks using Ipads and designed their own. Using papier mache they constructed a mask of their own.
Year 3 had a wonderful visit to Palace Green in order to consolidate their topic of Stoneage to Ironage. We took part in different activities.
We looked at, described and drew Prehistoric artefacts.
We took part in activity trail around the museum which involved games, weaving and detective work.
We looked at the skeleton of a prehistoric man and used clues to identify his age and status.
We designed our own Ironage coin using embossing paper and tools.
Year 3 were invited to take part in a Cardio Tennis Festival at Boldon School. We had a lot of fun and learned many new ball and racket skills.
As part of our Multicultural week, Year 3 had some visitors that told us all about Hinduism. We got to dress up and act out the story of Rama and Sita, as well as learning lots of new facts.
During multicultural week Year 3 were taught a Bollywood dance. Bollywood is very famous in India, the industry make lots of successful films. Music and dancing are an important part of this.
On 22nd March, 30 children from Year 3 went to Temple Park to take part in a Multi-Skills Festival.
We had the opportunity to practise skills such as, dribbling with a football; throwing and catching; standing long jumps; chest pushes with a weighted ball and relay races.
Each event was scored and our Biddick A and B teams both scored 84 points, meaning we were placed in joint 3rd position.
It was a really fun morning and a great opportunity to add some exercise to our day.
Our behaviour and attitude throughout the whole morning was excellent and Miss Archer said it was a pleasure to take us there.
As part of maths, science and technology week the children enjoyed completing various puzzles.
Year 3’s Design and Technology Project this term was to make pizza, linked to our Italy topic. We used our research from Roma Restaurant to design and make a tasty Italian pizza from scratch. The children used lots of skills such as measuring, mixing, kneading and rolling. The smell in our classroom was amazing and we enjoyed eating and evaluating our pizzas later in the day.
