Investigating 3D Shapes

Today the children were set the challenge of creating 3D shapes from a range of materials. The children were asked to make 3D shapes out of play dough, nets of shapes and art straws. The children then had to investigate the amount of edges, faces and vertices that their shapes had. The children loved making lots of different 3D shapes.

Staryland

Today Ava, Jack and Ryan H were asked to represent our school at an event at South Shields Town Hall. The children were asked about whether they knew what an election was and what candidates were. They were then told the story of a land who needed to have an election to find its new leader. The children were then taken to the chambers and listened to the two candidates. In secret the children then placed their votes and they helped to elect Sally Shoelace as the new leader of Staryland. The children had an amazing time and Miss Waite was extremely proud of how well they represented our school.

Creating Clay Landmarks

Today the children in Year 3 were set the challenge of creating Italian landmarks using clay. Lots of children created The Colosseum and The Leaning Tower of Pisa. We all had great fun modelling the clay and the children were very proud of their creations. Now we have to wait for them to dry out.

Harvest Fast Day

Today for Harvest Fast day, we all dressed up in bright colours to brighten up harvest. We all donated money and tins to add to our Harvest display. All the tins and food we will donate to the Key project. Thank you for all of your support.

Year 2 then presented an assembly all about Harvest. The children re arranged the letters to create different words that harvest made. They then sang songs all about harvest. The children recited a harvest prayer with actions to share with the school and some children shared their own prayers. Well Done everyone!

School Council Speeches

Today in Year 3, the children were given the opportunity to deliver their speeches to the rest of the class to allow us to vote for our class councillors. We were so proud of all of the members of our class who had the confidence to read their speeches to the rest of the class. The speeches were so amazing that we found it difficult to vote for only two candidates. We now can’t wait to hear who our new councillors are.
