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!

Year 3’s Creating a Spark!

Year 3 have been using the Adobe Spark Video app to create a video all about the history of Cadbury – from 1824, when John Cadbury opened his shop to sell his cocoa and drinking chocolates until 1905 with the release of the Dairy Milk bar.

The children recorded their voices retelling the story and then added: text, images and/or icons to illustrate. The children then explored and applied different layouts to their slides and customised the look and feel of their video using the predefined themes. To help enhance the video further, the children added an appropriate sound track.

Y3 Racquet & Ball Festival

The children in Year 3 went to a brilliant sporting event this week! The aim was to build skills and confidence in using racquets, based on the sports of badminton, tennis and squash.

We had a fantastic time playing games which helped develop hand-eye coordination, balance, power and teamwork.
