Superb Segedunum

Today the children in Year 3 visited the Roman fort Segedunum in Wallsend. The day started with snow which made us all very excited. We arrived at Segedunum and began a workshop where we learned how to become Roman soldiers. We learned about their uniform, their oath and how to march into battle like a Roman. We then enjoyed our lovely packed lunches and had a trip up the tower. In here we could see the remains of the fort and this looked magical with the snow lying on top of it. After that we explored the museum and loved taking part in lots of fun activities. We had an amazing day and didn’t want to come back to school. We now can’t wait to keep learning about the Romans.

Youth Friday

This year for Youth Friday Year 5 prepared a liturgy for the whole school. We followed the youth Friday liturgy and children from year 4 and 5 completed a liturgical dance. We all listened to the message from the Bishop. We brought forward our YES prayers from each class during the liturgy, that we had prepared during a class sessions preparing for Youth Friday.

In St Mary’s we say YES!

Marvellous Multi Skills

Today the children in Year 3 took part in an event at Temple Park. The children were placed into groups and were able to take part in a range of activities to practise various skills. The children were being coached by girls from St. Wilfrid’s and the children learned passing skills, skipping skills, MMA techniques and so much more. The children had an amazing afternoon and were extremely tired when we were heading back to school.

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.

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.
