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.

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!
