During Healthy Week we wanted to investigate how much carbon dioxide is in fizzy drinks and whether or not we think it is good for our bodies. We took part in a Mentos and Diet Cola experiment to test our theories. As you can see in the videos below it was an explosive lesson.
Today we received some First Aid training and what to do should we need to call the Emergency Services. The children were able to perform CPR on mannequins remembering the important steps.
As part of our healthy week we had a visit from Mrs Scammell who is a nurse in the NHS. She spoke to us about her job as a nurse and what to do if we need medical help at home or in hospital. We learned how to stop germs spreading and the tools needed for every nurse to help their patients. Life in the accident and emergency department sounds hard but with nurses like Mrs Scammell we know we are in very good hands.
We have had a lovely day celebrating World Book day and all the children have made a great effort with their costumes. We have created character selfies and have solved a quiz using emojis that tell us what story book the emoji is showing (this was a lot of fun)
We had a great time at Simply Greek restaurant in Newcastle today. We were introduced to the chef and owner of the restaurant who told us he was head chef at the Olympics in Greece and showed us how to make a simple tomato sauce that is used in most Greek cusine. We also learned how olive oil is made too! Our favourite part had to be the food. We had meatballs in tomato sauce, chicken pasta with Greek cheese and bread with hummus. It was absolutely delicious! We would recommend you go as they cater to all needs and the food is more than ‘Simply Greek’ (more…)
We had a great day at Christmas Craft. In the Year 3 Classroom with Mrs Gofton and Miss Hipkiss we created our very own stocking that we had to sew together and add either a snowman, reindeer or Santa. We had a lot of knots along the way but our stockings were great!
We had a great time at our Christmas Party. We played games such as pass the parcel, corners and Mr Monaghan was great as the museum director in Night at the Museum. We had to do silly things such as putting a shoe on our head and a plank whilst keeping still! We were certainly all partied out! Merry Christmas to all of our children and parents from Year 3 and Year 4 staff
We had a great time in Year 3 fundraising for Children in Need. We all dressed up and bought some amazing cakes. We even had our very own Pudsey jar which was kindly given to us by a parent and as a class we raised £15 which was added to our school total.
We had a great day at West Boldon Lodge for our Stone Age day. We created some great art work including charcoal stone paintings, an axe, building a house, creating an arrow from willow and using leaves to create a target for some arrow practice. Although it was a little chilly we had a great day and the camp fire certainly warmed us up!
