Our Summer 1 Learning

18 May 2018 - This week the year 3 children in Mrs Plant's class have been designing and making their stages for the puppet show out of every day materials, such as cardboard, fabric and plastic. Once again, the students have had assistance from creative and enthuastic parents. The stages are looking great!

Next week will be the final week to complete the stages. We are hoping to perform a puppet show to show of all our hard work over the last month.

11 May 2018 - What a week the Year 3 children in Mrs Plant's class have had. On Thursday they finished off making their puppets with the help of their parents. The puppets will be used for a puppet show in the final week of term.

Thanks to all the adults who took part and supported their child. We look forward to seeing you at the show.

In science the children have been learning about electricity, making their own circuits using the correct components. Some children managed to light up 5 lightbulbs. Good going, Year 3's.

The children in year 3JP have been making puppets with the help of their parents, aunties and grandparents. The turnout was amazing and the children really enjoyed making the puppets and receiving their relatives support.

04 May 2018 - The children have been reading the play Romeo and Juliet and, as part of the Design and Technology learning, decided to design and make puppets. Also they will be designing and making a stage to perform their puppet show on.
