Assembly – February 2018
Well done Year 3 your assembly was AMAZING!
The chocolate button challenge!
To learn about collaboration Ms Fowler put down a bowl of chocolate buttons and gave us each a spoon. She said we could eat as many chocolate buttons as we wanted with a spoon but we weren’t allowed to bend our elbows – we had to keep our arms straight! After various tongue stretching, chocolate button catapulting attempts we realised the solution was to collaborate and feed each other!
Year 3 and 4 had an amazing WOW day based on their topic “The Firework Maker’s Daughter”. They all had a chance to make a shadow puppet and perform a shadow puppet play, learn about Tai Chi, prepare the vegetables for a stir fry and then eat it with chopsticks.
Thank you very much to the PTA for helping to fund this event.
Thank you also to Peggy Chung who taught us how to make a delicious vegetable stir fry.
Peggy Chung’s Vegetable Stir Fry
1-2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Teaspoon of dark soy sauce
1 Teaspoon of light soy sauce
Selection of vegetables e.g. peppers, courgette, mushrooms, carrots
- Pre cook the noodles following the instructions on the packet.
- Chop the vegetables finely and use a peeler to shave the carrot.
- Heat the oil.
- Add the vegetables and fry for 3-4 minutes.
- Add the noodles and soy sauce and fry for another 2 minutes.
The Night of the Seawigs!
After reading Oliver and the Seawigs by Phillip Reeve as our class book, we all made a seawig to wear to the night of the seawigs party. On our seawig we drew symbols from the last 7 years of our lives and decorated them with seaweed and shells.
We have noticed how cold it has been getting recently but exactly how cold is cold?
Now we know how to use a thermometer, we will be measuring the temperature daily and keeping a record at the Year 3 Weather Station.

Stone Age Experience!
On Monday we were lucky enough to have a visit from Past Alive.
They brought with them lots of Stone Age artefacts, some of which were over 35 000 years old!
“I like it when we made a fire without matches!” Oliver
“They showed us everything about the Stone Age – I like it when we saw the animal skins.” Charlotte
“We even held two arrow heads!” Oscar
Many thanks to the PTA for funding this amazing day.
Stone Age Timeline
Year 3 and 4 went out to the playground to create a timeline that stretched from 2017 right back to the Stone Age. Using a toilet roll (of all things) they managed to get it to scale: One sheet represented 5000 years!
Our Class Assembly
Year three did a class Assembly on Tuesday 18th of July about childhood over the years. Everyone had a part. Children sang we will rock you, rock around the clock, twist and shout, starman and the Macarena.

The class did really well it was great although there was a few technical difficulties I think the Assembly was really well presented and everyone knew their lines and it went amazingly well.

Each group performed a different decade. Table 1 did the 1990s, table 2 did the 1970s, table 3 did the 1950s, table 4 did the 1980s and table 5 did the 1960s. The photograph above shows the 1950s group talking about childhood after dancing on in partners. The photograph on the left shows the 1960s group making a rocket for Apollo 11.
