Summer’s Here!

Posted on

The last week or two in school is always such fun and we really enjoyed getting into the spirit of summer and making the most of our time together as 3rd class! We have been doing lots of practice for our End of Year service, taking part in Springdale’s Got Talent, playing Spikeball, completing an A to Z of 3rd Class, creating gorgeous summer sandcastles, going on a trip to the playground, eating ice cream and playing Quidditch! We have also been finishing off our Measley Middle Ages projects and learned lots of interesting facts while working on them. We have had an awesome year in 3rd Class and we know Ms. Stirling is REALLY going to miss us! We really are the BEST CLASS EVER! Take a look at our latest activities…

Gorgeous sandcastles by 3rd Class

Our trip to the playground was lots of fun! We played some football and skipping games, then went on the swings and the climbing wall. Later we got to show of our strength on the monkey bars and climbing frame as well as having fun on the seesaw!

We also had a very exciting visit from Mr. Pinky’s ice cream van. We were delighted to get some lovely ice creamy treats and have some time together in the yard to enjoy it. The smiles say it all!

We took some time to reflect on our year together and put together an A to Z of 3rd Class. It was good fun chatting about everything we got up to during the year!

On the 2nd last day of term we decided to share in a little bit of magic and took out our broomsticks to play QUIDDITCH! It was great fun (though a little tricky) to stay on our broomsticks! By the end, Hogwarts would have loved to have us on their Quidditch teams! Can you spot our golden snitch racing round with their golden tail?

Well done 3rd Class for working so hard and being such fun all year! Have a wonderful summer!

Causey – The Best Day EVER!

Posted on

We were VERY excited to get back to school tours this year! 3rd Class got to go to the Amazing Causey Experience where we got to meet some interesting farm animals including 2 donkeys called Shrek and Fiona, alpacas, llamas and the most energetic pig we’ve ever met! We also got to complete a mirror maze, get on a train, play the piano in the woods, go through a tiny mine tunnel, cuddle with some bunny rabbits, take part in a welly throwing competition, go on a tractor & trailer ride, and most importantly, jump in the bog! To say we were excited to get seriously mucky is an understatement… Check out the video below of our great day! If you want to have a closer look at any of the photos in the video, they’re in the gallery at the bottom of this post.

We also learned a new song with our instructor Peter!

It’s safe to say the teachers had lots of fun too… 🙂

Active Week

Posted on

Active Week in school was such great fun. We got up to all sorts! We ran our K-a-Day each day, took part in Active Lines, did circuits, ‘Dropped Everything And Danced’, did 10@10 and lots more. We definitely got a LOT of activities squeezed in to one seriously fun week. Hopefully we inspired lots of active time at home too! 🙂 If you’d like to have a go at one of our D.E.A.D. dances, check these out…

Thank you to the Active Committee for planning such a brilliant week for us all! Check out our photo gallery from the week…

Minute to Win It!

Posted on

We have been learning about time! Time telling is a tricky skill, especially when you have to tell both analogue AND digital times, so we had to have a few ‘Minute to Win It’ games to break up all the hard work. We had to do some challenges like hanging as many pegs as we could on a piece of string, stacking dominoes, building card castles, threading as many mini marshmallows on raw spaghetti as possible, and doing as many jumping jacks as possible, all in only one minute!

Sometimes a minute seems to fly by VERY quickly!
