We had the opportunity to share our work with the rest of the school. The children took us on a journey back to Ancient Greece through the retelling of the myths, Theseus and the Minotaur and Pandora's Box. As well as some amazing acting skills, they finished with a resounding song.
It is incredible to see the progress they have made in their performance skills. A big thank you goes to Murmur for always getting the best out of them. Super use of the Big 13 Skill Positive Attitude.
Mrs Gregg's class, as part of their Enterprise lesson, organised and ran an Killamarsh Olympic Games. We thoroughly enjoyed trying a range of activities although it was a little cold!
Next week, we are looking forward to using the skills of Organisation and Planning and Teamwork to run an Olympics for Miss Alldread's Class.
Thanks to my class and parents for raising over £100 from the sale of buns and cakes. Another great example of Financial Literacy and Positive Attitude. All the money raised will go towards funding our Crossing Patrol.

Our VIP children did an amazing job of Organising and Planning an Easter Egg hunt. They also demonstrated Leadership, Teamwork and Positive Attitude. Thanks, you were amazing!!
We had a great time today running the Sports Relief Mile. Our class raised £22.50 for their donations. This money is enough to buy 2 school uniforms for a former
child-labourer in Nepal, so they can go back to school and get and education.
This was a great opportunity for our class to develop the Enterprise skills of Making Ethical Decisions and Financial Literacy.
We created dances by chance. First we numbered our 6 favourite ocean animals. Then we rolled a die to create a pattern. Finally we created ocean actions and performed them to an audience. A great way to demonstrate Organisation and Planning.
Here are some pictures of us practising.
As part of our Spark of Life topic - Oceans, we read Shadows under the Sea by Sally Grindley. We enjoyed Joe's adventure and learning more about how seahorses are endangered. There are three other books in the series, which follows Joe to Russia to save the Amur Tiger, Kenya to save the Black Rhino and Kites in India. These books have made us think about the Enterprise skill Making Ethical Decisions.
We played a game based on our Normans work. We were split into two teams, the Saxons and the Normans. The aim of the game was for the Normans to invade England and steal all our treasure (cones). The Saxons had to defend the treasure by firing arrows (sponge balls) at the Invaders feet! What a great way to demonstrate the Enterprise skill of Teamwork. We enjoyed playing the game although there was a bit of cheating!
Our class studied the parts of a Norman castle and then used the Enterprise Skills of Problem Solving, Initiative and Teamwork to create their own castles.
We are very proud of the results!

The first reading tokens have been drawn. Our Y3 winner chose Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. Don't forget to take the Initiative and earn your chance of winning a book by reading at least three times (a week) at home.
Today we looked at place value and money. We played the Money Nasty Game. The aim of the game is to get the most money!! You take it in turns to role a die and then decide where you want to put the number. If you role a 1 and are feeling nasty, you can place it in someone else's box! We had great fun and demonstrated a Positive Attitude!
This is our second class book. As part of our English work, on the book Grandpa Chatterji, we wrote recipes, diaries, letters, reviews and descriptions. Super examples of Effective Communication.
