Sport Relief Day

March 24th, 2016

On the 18th of March it was Sport Relief day to rase money. We had to run as far as we could around our school field. Twelve laps around was a mile. Class 3 ran for about forty-five minutes and some people managed to run about three miles! Lots of us bought wristbands to raise even more money for Sport Relief.

Mechanical Systems

March 11th, 2016

This week in D.T. we have been learning about mechanical systems which is where components act together  to create a motion. In partners we followed instructions to make our own systems based on levers and linkages.We used recycled cereal boxes and split pins to make them.Next week we will be using this knowledge to design mechanical posters encouraging people to recycle.

Personal Survival

March 7th, 2016

On the 1st of March class 3 went swimming where we did personal survival. Personal survival is when you learn about keeping safe in the water. You have to be VERY careful near ponds and lakes! There were three groups and each did a different part of personal survival. The first group learnt about avoiding rocks and other obstructions in the water. The second found out how tread to  water and how to keep warm in water . the last group concentrated on rescuing people from the side of the pool . We had lots of fun while learning about this very important topic and we would like to thank Lindsay and all the other teachers at Diss Swimming Pool.  🙂

Olly Day’s magic road safety show

February 29th, 2016

In school on Thursday 25 February we had a visitor called Olly Day. He told us all about road safety and showed us some magic tricks as well. In one of them he had some ropes,  one short, one medium and one long. They each had names, the short one was Stop, the medium one was Look and the long was And Listen. He asked us if we wanted the ropes to be the same length and we did, so he folded  them all together. Two of the pupils pulled the ropes and the ropes ended up as the same length! We learned lots about keeping safe on the road, not crossing on a bend and the importance of wearing cycle helmets.

Magnificent Mountains

February 23rd, 2016

In our new topic we have been learning about mountains. We investigated where the highest mountains are around the world.We used atlases to find the locations of mountain ranges in every continent.We also used dictionaries to define lots of geographical vocabulary. One of the most FUN things we have done was drawing pictures  to show the features of mountains.

Irie Steelpan Workshop

February 8th, 2016

On the 4 th  February we had a special surprise when the Irie Steel Pan Workshop came into our School. Marcella and Junior played all kinds of different songs including ‘who let the dogs out?’ which we sang along to. We all danced the conga around the hall, it was  fantastic fun. We all had a chance to play the steel drums before we learnt how to dance ska. Marcella and  Junior have a brilliant website  where you can play the steel drum! www.iriesteelpanworkshops.com. Thank you Marcella and Junior for coming to our school.

Our recount

February 1st, 2016

Last week we were writing a recount about a lonely robot Our writing had a twist though!As we were using DADWAVERS! our writing turned out to be different to any other old recount. We think they were much more interesting! Some of us used handwriting pens to copy up our work for display.                                                                                                 Sophie Seeley
