Pedestrian Training

This week we completed our pedestrian training sessions.  We have been spending the last few weeks going out into the local area to learn new skills for crossing the roads safely.  Today we completed our sessions and received our certificates.

Children's Mental Health Week - My Voice Matters We read the story 'Worried Arthur' and we identified what Arthur done when he had a worry. We discovered there were many different strategies to use but they all began with talking about it.

It's party time! We were having too much fun to take many photo's but here's a few of the children meeting Santa and enjoying their buffet!

Say hello to our new Playground Pals. These children will be helping out at playtimes and lunchtimes on the yard. They will be looking out for children who need a friend as well as making sure children are being kind to each other and following our golden rules. There are two teams of children (1 from each Y3 class) and they will take turns to be on duty.

The Seals of St Mary's by Lucy Wraight

We had a fantastic visit from a local author, Lucy Wraight this morning. Lucy read her story to us and answered questions. She told us all about how she became an author and how she was inspired for her story.

Star writers for this half term.

We had the BEST day in school with the visit from the basketball player Paul Sturgess. He made us see that being unique is a gift and talked to us about how he has used his height to his advantage. We also talked about not giving up and reaching for the stars as well as learning some cool basketball tricks!

We had a fantastic time on our visit to Northumbria University! We were geologists for a morning and learned all about rocks, fossils and the rock cycle. We loved working in the lab to do our experiment.


As part of our design technology project we have learned about safety and hygiene in the kitchen as well as seasonal foods. To complete our project, we designed, made and enjoyed eating some pitta pizzas. We all agreed that making them was a lot of fun and we enjoyed eating them too!

Make Someone Laugh.

To celebrate Red Nose Day 2023 we, as a class, voted on the three best jokes and performed them in the Sea View Comedy Club. Sit back and enjoy the show...

Muddy Monsters! We had a fantastic time exploring outdoor learning in our Muddy Monsters session this week. Take a look at our photos to see what we got up to!

This week in our science lessons we had a lot of fun learning all about our different muscles and what we use them for. The children designed their own investigation into exploring which muscles we used when we exercised and really enjoyed carrying out the experiments!

Rainforest Research

Today we began preparation for our non-chronological report writing.  We split into groups and each group had an area of the rainforest to research.  We then learned about how to present our work in paragraphs with sub-headings.  We will collect all of our research together to complete our written reports later in the week.

Rainforest Research!

It's party day!

Today we had a visitor from NUSTEM to teach us all about rocks... from space! We had a fantastic time exploring the meteorites that were over 4 billion years old.

Look at our beautiful Diva lamps that we made to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali - the festival of lights.

Competition Winner! We entered a competition to design a poster to show what we had learned during our pedestrian training and we have a winner! Congratulations!

Today we held an assembly for Remembrance Day. In the assembly we followed the story of a young soldier in WW1. The children were very moved by the story. Following this we observed a two minute silence at 11am. The children were all very respectfull. We then listened to The Last Post and discussed how the piece of music made us feel. In the children's free time this afternoon, some of them chose to draw pictures or do some writing about the significance of the day.
