NJS Remembers

On Remembrance Day, LKS2 spent the day making some these beautiful remembrance day cards which included a watercolour poppy and an acrostic poem. These works of art were taken to Campsall Church and given to members of the community who attended the Remembrance service.

Chance To Dance

This week the children in year 3 were excited to take part in the launch of our Chance to Dance lessons. Our focus ballet this year is The Nutcracker. To start, the children were introduced to the main characters from the ballet and created motifs to show their personality and how they might move. It was lovely to see how all children embraced this new genre of dance and the effort they put in to perfecting their performances.

Spooky Halloween

What a frightening start to the half term we had with this lot of scary folk. 3HJ had a wonderful day completing a whole host of spooky activities from writing to creating their own death masks. Enjoy trick or treating! 🎃👻💀

Happy Halloween!

Y3 have had a spooky start back to school today. Everybody dazzled in their amazing halloween costumes. We had everything from pumpkins to witches and skeletons to werewolves.
After sharing our exciting half term stories in crew, we spent the day completing a number of halloween themed tasks such as making our own halloween characters, designing pumpkins and using our maths knowledge to solve a mystery.

Baking Wartime Bread

To celebrate the end of our first case study of our Lest We Forget expedition, year 3 have used their knowledge and understanding of rationing as well as measures to bake bread from a traditional WW2 recipe. Obviously, the best part was getting stuck in with kneading and I have to say the bread was absolutely delicious and went down a treat!

Wartime Baking

This week 3LG have been learning all about rationing and wartime food. To finish up our learning we made traditional WW2 bread, using only what people would have avaiable at the time.

We have spent the morning following a recipe, measuring igredients, mixing and kneeding dough.

We can definitely think of worse ways to spend a Friday than making the “best bread ever”

Flexible Friday

Flexible Friday is where Yr 3 children choose different activities to complete with their crew. Today Crew Jenkins and Crew West played dodgeball against each other. Although each crew wanted to win, it was lovely to see positive sportsmanship both during and after the games with children cheering for each other, congratulating one another and shaking hands. It was lovely to watch! 😊
