What a Load of Rubbish!
For the second half of the Spring Term, Class Three will be considering the importance of recycling. They will find out about which materials can be recycled and the different processes that are used.
In Literacy the children will use the books ‘Michael Recycle’ and ‘Litterbug Doug’, both of which are stories by Ellie Bethal, written in the form of a poem. The children will use what they learn about recycling to write their own poems in the same style.
As well as looking into the processes of recycling, the children will use their art and design skills to create their own artwork using recycling, such as sock monsters, bottle fish and pencil holders.
In ICT, the children will use animation programmes such as Scratch and Kodu to design and write their very own recycling computer game!

This half term our topic was History led and focused on why the Roman army came to invade and settle in the UK. Class 3 travelled back in time to meet a real life Roman Centurion.
We visited Segedunum in Wallsend; this helped us to understand the local history and how society has been shaped by the settlement of different people.
We also learnt a bit of Latin. Salve, quid agis?For more detail please click on the links below:

Cliffhanger is a story about a young boy named Tim, whose father sends him on an adventure holiday, even though he hates games! Tim dreads each day and this novel deals with feeling worried, learning how to cope in difficult situations and self discovery.
In the story the children are split into four teams, which they work closely with to tackle several new and daunting challenges. We did the same in class!
