Elvis visits Year 3! 

On Tuesday we had a special visitor in Year 3..Elvis the husky came into school to see us. We were amazed by his size and thick coat! Elvis and Mr Moore told us some interesting facts about huskies and how similar they are to wolves. 

Meeting Elvis has really helped us imagine how big Starjik’s wolves are. 

Maths week – our special visitor! 

Year 3 and 4 were very lucky to have a special visitor come into school on Tuesday. Dan, Mrs Potter’s brother, who is a vet came to talk to the children about his job and how he uses maths everyday. The children were fascinated when hearing stories about the treatment of different animals and had the chance to work out some mathematical problems! 

Imogen, Mayako and Yunus enjoyed trying out some of his equipment too! 

Writing Haikus

We enjoyed writing some haiku poems in our English lesson today…
White glistening snow

Snow on the ground like glitter 

Hard crunchy white snow.

Soft magical snow

Falling in the fresh breeze

Like feathers falling.

Frozen slippy ice 

Making people fall over

Hiding in the cracks.

Our visit to the synagogue!

As part of our RE topic learning about Judaism, Year 3 visited the synagogue on Shadwell Lane this week. The children enjoyed visiting this place of worship and seeing the features we have been learning about. We were all amazed at the size of the Torah scrolls! The children all behaved exceptionally and this was acknowledged by the volunteers who led the workshop. Well done, Year 3!

Working in the art studio 

Thank you to those of you who came to our celebration this afternoon. It was lovely to see so many of you. As many of you saw, the children have been working very hard and have thoroughly enjoyed the time they have spent working in the art studio with Mrs Johnston. 

Here is a snapshot of some of the things we have been doing this week…

Building Dens!

We had lots of fun yesterday building dens! 

Our challenge was to build a waterproof shelter for Stig. By the end of our session we had some impressive dens which were big enough for us to sit inside. Today we wrote a set of instructions for building a den.
