Class 3

Welcome to Class 3

 

We just can’t keep up with the fun this week. Class 3 have filled their Silver Fundraising Jar twice! The prize was a Super Soaker!

On Tuesday, in the glorious June sunshine, Class 3 visited Rock and River. It was a wonderful day of ‘Outdoor, Action and Adventure’. Our activities included Canoeing, Paddle Boarding, Rock Climbing, Low Ropes Obstacle and the Leg-Shaking Air Bag Jump. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day learning new skills and boosting their own confidence. Thank you to the staff at Rock and River who provided a stimulating environment and encouraged everyone to be the best they could.

Usually at this time of year we enter the Southport Flower Show -  'design a school garden competition', unfortunately due social distancing measures this event will not take place this year. However, with so many of us enjoying our gardens at home, Class 3 have taken up the challenge to design their own 'Lockdown Garden' which would bring pleasure to all age groups.

As part of our work on World War II the children in Class 3 have been asked to make a wartime recipe whilst they are learning at home.

See below for some of their efforts and family comments so far.

How we commemorated the 75th anniversary of VE Day

Today Class 3 took part in the Heartstart Programme led by our South Ribble Sports Coach. The children learnt: • How to open an airway • How to put a person in the recovery position • DRS ABC (danger, response, shout, airway, breathing and CPR) • How to treat a person with a bleed • How to help someone who is choking • How to administer CPR They thoroughly enjoyed learning these important life skills.

As part of our work, Class 3 held a whole school debate on the question: Is it necessary to give Primary School children homework? Reasons for the Proposition included: • Homework stops children from spending too long watching a blue screen. • Homework allows children to retain what they have learnt in school. • Homework can develop imaginations and creative skills. Reasons for Opposition included: • Children spend enough hours (30+ per week) at school. • Children’s well-being is affected by the pressure of homework. • Homework impacts on family time. Once all the points had been debated the voting was very close. It was 30 – 29 in favour of homework.

In Forest School this week Class 3 learnt about mixing solutions, freezing and melting. They are going to see what happens to a cup full of pretty woodland things covered in water when it is frozen.

Today Class 3 were joined by PCSO Maria Featherstone who taught us the importance of being safe on the internet. We learnt: • That we must never give out personal information online • To block or delete cyber bullies who are sending mean messages or images • To be a cyber-defender by taking a screen shot of the evidence and reporting the bullies • To ensure our parents have the set the correct privacy settings on our electronic devices • Useful information can be found at https://www.childnet.com/parents-and-carers/parent-and-carer-toolkit

Great teamwork yesterday as Class 3, enthusiastically, had a go at making their own animation films. The results were fantastic!
