Christmas Workshop at Pudsey Parish Church
On Friday afternoon, Year 3 visited the Pudsey Parish Church to take part in a Christmas Workshop. It was a great opportunity to learn the story of the nativity through games, crafts and drama. All the children loved dressing up as all the characters and came home with some beautiful ornaments for your Christmas trees at home.
We would like to thank the staff at Pudsey Parish Church for a running the wonderful experiences and we would also like to thank the abundance of parents that volunteered to help us with the trip. Unfortunately, we were unable to take all the parents that offered but it was brilliant to see the continued support that we get from our outstanding Year 3 parents.
A few of year 3 were lucky enough to take part in a karate taster session with children from other school. It was great to hear about the positive and determined attitude that all the children showed throughout the session. We would like to say thank you to the staff that accompanied the children and even got involved themselves. The children came back to class with massive smiles on their faces with so many stories to tell. I just feel sorry for the bags!
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Waterloo remembered. It was an amazing thing to witness the whole school show so much respect and maturity throughout the day. All the children were able to try on some of my (Mr.Woods) old military clothing and equipment from being in the Royal Marines.
Thank you for your continued support.

In the news - Recycling Week
As part of our theme week, 'In the news' - we looked at improving Recycling as a whole school topic. In year 3, we received a letter from the council asking for our help. A local fish and chip shop had a waste recycling problem and they needed a solution.
This was an opportunity for all the children to create compost bins to show the fish and chip shop exactly how to recycle correctly. I definitely think all the children enjoys the slimy worms!

Stone Henge Debate
Since the start of the year, we have been intrigued by our topic - Stone Age to Iron Age. Last week we learnt the mysterious story behind the Stone Henge and It was a perfect opportunity to develop our debating skills to answer the question: Why was the Stone Henge made? The children were given a role to play which outlined their belief on the question. Some believed it was made for religous reasons, others believed it was made as a calendar to tell the time of year. One group thought it was made for celebrations or 'parties' as the children explained it. I'm sure you can guess which was the favoured option. We were really impressed how the children put 100% into the debate and everyone was able to share their opinions. There are definitely some future politicians in Year 3!
