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.

The start of our NJS journey

In our first week at NJS, 3HJ have made ’Time Capsules’ reflecting on their summer break and setting goals for the new school year. Each time capsule contains photos, examples of some of the children’s favourite things, pledges for the forthcoming year and pieces of awesome art work. These time capsules will be sealed and ‘buried’ till July where we will be able to reflect on our journey through year 3!

Eden Camp excitement!

What an exciting start to NJS and Year Three these children have had. Today we undertook fieldwork for our autumn expedition – Lest We Forget at the amazing Eden Camp Museum. We were so excited to learn everything World War Two related from The Blitz, Women at Work and rationing. Our children were excellent ambassadors to our school and we all had a marvellous day!

Pop art by Andy Warhol

This week, year 3 have been studying pop art by inspirational artist Andy Warhol. We completed a gallery walk, making praises and wonders about some of his most iconic pieces. As you can see, we also had a go at creating our very own pop art pictures using sweets and sugar as inspiration. Check out the vibrant colours and the attention to detail. Great job 3HJ!
