All of the fabulous harvest donations have today been delivered. The box In Tesco was pretty empty before all of your kind donations were added to it. Thank you again everyone, have a wonderful week and we will look forward to seeing all of the children again on 2nd November.
Year 3 have ended their successful half term by learning a little about harvest and thinking about how lucky we are to have such amazing farmers and fishermen as well as the factory workers and shop staff who help us get our food from ‘Farm to Fork’.
We had a virtual tour of a real farm thanks to Mrs McCaig doing some super videos on a farm near where she lives at the weekend and today we brought in some harvest gifts to share in our community.
In our PSHE lessons we have been learning about our wider community and people who help others, so we felt it would be lovely to make a contribution to help some of those who may need a little extra help especially in these challenging times that we are experiencing. The really kind donations of food will all go to the foodbank donation box in a Supermarket, hopefully in Sheringham in the next couple of days.
We will post a picture of it being delivered. In art today we had a wonderful time doing some observational watercolour paintings and pastel drawings of pumpkins, again linking to the harvest. We hope that you like this small sample of the work produced by some of 3W.
This year lots of things enjoyed by the children will be a little different and possibly may mean that the usual Halloween events cannot happen, so the children were extremely touched at the kindness of a 3M parent who very generously shared some Halloween sweets in a lovely package for every child in the Year Group. It is such a lovely gesture and the children were all very thankful.
Have a wonderful half term break, Take care Miss West and Mrs McCaig
Mrs McCaig, Miss West and Miss Ash spent an enjoyable evening after school presenting a selection of the wonderful art and English work completed by the children this half term in the form of this lovely display. We are now well into our work connected to the story of ‘Leon and the Place Between’ by Angela McAllister and will be writing our own versions next week, before embarking on an exciting Design Technology project connected to this story after half term!
Well it is exciting in Year 3 today! Not only has the circus come to town, but our broad bean seeds have started to germinate and we now have some shoots with leaves on our plants that have appeared during the weekend. Even better though, our ‘grass heads’ have started to grow!We look forward to seeing them get even bigger and better 🙂
