Today Y3 went on an exciting trip to Harrogate. We went in a museum to learn about the ancient Egyptians and we got to hold objects that were over 3000 years old. We also go to write our names in hieroglyphics, wear Egyptian clothing and we even learnt how to mummify a body-eww! During our time in Harrogate we also got to visit the Royal Hall theatre and an art gallery.
This week Y3 had their last road safety training session. They learnt how to cross a road safely between two cars and at a junction. We also learnt about different hazards that may stop us from crossing a road safely and how to see if a parked car is about to move.
Today Y3 spent their morning making mammoth poo and then eating it! Luckily it wasn’t as disgusting as it sounds as it was made from mostly butter, sugar and chocolate chips so tasted yummy! We will use what we did today to create our own mammoth poo recipes this week so others can follow it and make it for themselves.
This afternoon Y3NH have taken some time to visit our fantastic new library. The children were so excited to read the new books and had a great time listening to each other read whilst relaxing on the beanbags.
This morning, Y3 were joined by Alan MacDonald, author of the Dirty Bertie books. We went down to the hall, where he taught us how to draw Bertie, then he set us the challenge of creating a new book for the series. We created the front cover and wrote the blurb in the hope that he might use one in his next book! We had Dirty Bertie: Halloween, Dirty Bertie: Holiday and even Dirty Bertie: Explosion
Later on, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield visited school. She spoke to us in assembly and two children from each class had the chance to see her cutting the ribbon to unveil our wonderful new library! Mr Smith worked extremely hard to select books to suit everyone so we hope you will enjoy and cherish them.
