Year 3 Brass Concert

On Tuesday 25th June, the children in Year 3 completed their final Brass music lesson by holding a concert for parents.

The concert was a great hit. The children introduced the tunes they’d been learning and talked to the excited audience about how they had learned to play the instruments over the past year.

After only 30 minutes tuition per week, from Mr Baxter at Tees Valley Music Service, the children learned how to play a range of notes and perform several pieces of music. We also presented the awards for the Longest Note competition.

Year 3 Visit – Danby

The children in Year 3 have recently visited the North York Moors Visitor Centre in Danby, North Yorkshire.

We had a fantastic time there and had the opportunity to do a range of outdoor activities. These activities included:

Shelter building – Using a range of natural materials to create a comfortable yet sturdy shelter. The children worked brilliantly in teams to ensure they completed their mission.

Natural art – Using clay and a variety of twigs, sticks, seeds, leaves and pebbles to create the image of a god or goddess, which was displayed on the trunk of a tree.

Science – The children reviewed their understanding of photosynthesis in plants and became skilled at identifying a range of woodland plants and trees. They also had the opportunity to hunt for mini beasts in their natural habitat.

Ornithology – We used a woodland hide to observe a variety of birds and name them.

We hope you enjoy the photos!
