Y3C are getting into the holiday spirit!
Year 3 have had a fantastic time during Arts Week. We have taken part in dramatic productions, produced works of fine art, and enjoyed vocal and body percussion workshops.
Year 3 have been helping with the upkeep of our new allotment by watering and feeding the vegetables and herbs. Our tomato plants from Beamish Hall are doing well, and the courgettes are beginning to flower. Did you know that in Italy, deep fried courgette flowers are a popular appetiser?
An exciting parcel arrived from our French penpals in Noisy-le-sec this week. It contained timetables and beautifully written letters about what pupils will be doing during their Summer holidays. We noticed that they have already started their holidays (on 4 juillet – 4th July), and that their school day begins at 8.30. Children eat their evening meal at 7pm. We hope they received the timetables and letters we sent them.
Thank you to all of our parents/guardians for the contributions during our Elmer Project Day. We raised over £400 for St. Oswalds Hospice.
We are so excited for Elmer’s Great North Parade and cannot wait to see our Harton Primary School elephant on the trail. During our project day the children put forward their own design ideas and they were amazing. We cannot wait to share them with you.
Our Elmer sculpture is complete! It has been collected and is off to join the herd. Look out for our Harton Primary School sculpture, called ‘Proud to be me!’ during the summer holidays. The trail will begin in August. A huge thank you to every child that completed an Elmer design! The children have spent so long painting the sculpture and making sure it looked it’s very best before leaving our school. It looks AMAZING!
Y3D wrote a letter to their new teacher asking about what Year 4 would be like and letting them know any worries they may have. But… most importantly we drew a self portrait to show everything we love about ourselves and the hobbies we have reflected on our faces we may look wacky but we love them! Can you guess who is who?
We all thoroughly enjoyed our Sports Day, as usual!
We love Times Table Rockstars so much that we decided to have a competition week to find out who could answer the most correct questions in the fastest time. Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 had year group winners and a runner up.
Year 3 had a fabulous fun packed drama day yesterday! We had Jenny who is a drama teacher in school to teach us all about the Roman Timeline through the use of drama. We learned lots of fun facts about the Romans and ended the day by piecing all of our talent together and putting on a Romans Performance for our parents!
