We hope you all had a lovely summer! We can not wait to have you back in school and have an amazing year together.
This year the children have all been provided with a brand new P.E kit, we will keep this in school and send home on the weekends for it to be washed. Please can this be returned on Mondays, so we are ready for the week ahead.
We are also asking can all children bring in appropriate footwear for P.E lessons.
We wish you the best year.
Miss Cookson and Miss Lamb.
For Children in Need, this year we raised money for the cause by wearing yellow or own clothes. We all made a small donation to the charity! Children in Need is an important day to the school as it allows us to think about the children who are in need and what we can do to help. We all looked great in our Pudsey ears!
For Black History Month this year, Year 3 have been looking at two inspiration Black women. We focused on Josephine Baker and Katherine Johnson.
Katherine Johnson was an American who was known for the mathematician calculations. She worked for NASA as a human calculator, Katherine Johnson was recognised for her fight against segregation! She truly was a role model for young black girls and shown that black women were able to have the same opportunities as white people.
Josephine Baker was born in 1906 in the USA. When she was just 14 she landed a job with a group of travelling musician. Josephine was even given the leading role in the first all-black Broadway show. Josephine became a star and moved to France, as there was no segregation. Later in life when she returned to the USA she thought for rights around racism!
On Friday the 22nd of October, we presented these two women’s incredible stories, to raise awareness of Black History Month! It was great to share the stories to rest of the school.
The Iron Age
This Half term we have been learning about the Stone Age, We have all learned interesting facts about the Stone Age, such as, did you know it’s called the Stone Age because humans who lived during that time made weapons and tools out of stone. We looked in to different artist who created work around the Stone Age and we created some ourselves! In History we also looked at how they lived, what they wore and what they would eat and drink.
