Y3 Get Evacuated

Last week Y3 fully immersed themselves in our first case study by replicating in the life of a child during World War Two. We got dressed up in our best 1940s attire and walked down to Norton Community Hall where we ate jam sandwiches, drank ovaltine and played games.

To top off an amazing day as evacuees, we had some exciting visitors in school. We were joined by WW2 experts who brought wartime veihcles for us to have a look at and sit in.

“Lest We Forget” Hook Week

This week year three have started their expedition learning all about World War Two. Y3 have produced beautiful artwork of a skyline during the Blitz, watched Bedknobs and Broomsticks, learned all about how World War Two started and created aiplanes out of lollipop sticks. It is fair to say we are now fully immersed in our autumn expedition and can’t wait to find out more next week!

Year 3 Community Games Afternoon

Yesterday, Y3 had a wonderful afternoon in our first community event. We were very excited to invite parents and carers into school to hold a games afternoon, taking part in games of bingo and even trying our hand at “Beetle Drive”, a popular game among children during World War Two. Thank you so much to all those who attended.

Crew building!

Our class crew enjoyed a wonderful first week back engaging in a range of exciting team building activities! One of these activities was a STEM task where the children were challenged to design a table out of newspaper that was at least 20cm high and capable of holding at least one dictionary. In true NJS style, our crew smashed their goal and created a table that held an impressive FIVE dictionaries! Excellent team work 5RS – what a great start to the year!
