Our Poetry Assembly

At the end of our Poetry Week we had an assembly to see what each year group got up to during the week. Each year group performed the poem that they had been studying in an imaginative way. Some of the teachers also read out their favourite poems. Mrs Tootell’s favourite poem included lots of nonsense words so we were all very impressed when she had remembered it off by heart. Take a look at Mrs Tootell’s poem below. Can you work out what the words might mean?

Jabberwocky

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

‘Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!’

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought —
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One two! One two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

‘And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

by Lewis Carroll

Our Trip to Tesco

Year 3 have had another great visit to Tesco in Heswall. We went shopping for different types of fruit and vegetables. Then we looked at different types of sugar and tried to find food which didn’t have any extra sugar added to it! We then made our own healthy muesli with oats, sultanas, bran flakes and apricots. Year 3 had a fantastic morning at Tesco and were a credit to our school.

 

 

 


Poetry Week

This week the school is celebrating Poetry Week. Each year group is studying a poet and looking at the different poems that poet has written. On Friday there will be an assembly to perform the poems we have been learning about. Look back at this page to see some of the exciting things we have been up to this week.


The Easter Service

To celebrate Easter we carried out a whole school Easter Service. All of the year groups told part of the Easter Story. Year groups did this through poetry, song, dance or acting. It was a lovely service and it was nice to think about the real reason we celebrate Easter.

 


World Book Day

For World Book Day 2017 we came into school in our pyjamas and brought in our favourite bedtime story to read. Some of us even brought in a teddy! All of the year groups did lots of fun and exciting activities throughout the day. Some year groups went to the library, others met up with their reading buddies and other classes took part in a ‘World Book Day Quiz’. We finished off the day by listening to some of the teachers read from their favourite book in a very special assembly. It was a fun filled day for everyone!

 

 

 

 


Level Up Performance

In February 2017 we celebrated ‘Safer Internet Day’, we invited ‘One Day Creative’ into school to carry out a performance called ‘Level Up’. The performance taught us all about the dangers of online gaming and how we can avoid these. It also taught us what to do if we encounter any of these dangers. Please click on the link below to find out more information about the performance:

We had such a fun and informative morning. Take a look at the pictures of the performance below:

 

 

 


William Morris

Year 3 have been learning all about the artist William Morris, and how he created his wallpaper through printing. Miss Jones and 6J kindly gave them a helping hand, and their designs were very creative. Year 3 had lots of fun. Thanks 6J!

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 


Punch and Judy Puppets

As part of our Victorian topic Year 3 have been making Punch and Judy puppets. We firstly sewed two bits of a felt together to make their clothes. Next, we wrapped up tissue paper and covered it in masking tape. We then made a comedy face with a sausage nose and big chin!

We think our puppets look amazing, and could definitely pass for Punch or Judy.
