Year 3 have had a busy couple of weeks.
We’ve been busy looking at our new book study ‘The Abominables’ in English and revising our number and place value work in maths.
However, the Year 3 Pirate Camp has to be one of the highlights, with the children taking part in a range of pirate tasks. The evening activities included flag designing, boat floating, clay coin making and treasure collecting. Mrs Woodman and Mrs Smith kindly led us through a campfire singing session, with some very catchy tunes that the children are still singing in class today! After the children had some sleep, they cleared out their tents and enjoyed a sausage sandwich or three for breakfast.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped set up and then pack down all of the tents, meaning the year 3’s could carry on with more pirate activities in the morning.
If a pirate sleepover wasn’t enough excitement, we were very lucky to have Mr Watson join us the following Friday morning for a special science experiment. Take a look at this video to see the end result:
Lolly stick explosion!
If you have some lollypop sticks and a lot of patience, then do try it at home!
