Year 3 - Safer Internet Day 2019 , by Miss Jones

Date: 5th Feb 2019 @ 6:08pm

Year 3 have had a wonderful afternoon completing a carousel of activities about staying safe online. Our activities included sorting statements into fact and opinion so that we are able to spot fake news online. We also completed a quiz to understand what information is safe to share online. Another activity involved writing rules and top tips for keeping safe online and sorting true and false facts about internet usage. Finally, we read a story about Buddy the Dog  and how we could stay safe when using tablets. Buddy taught us a song. Why not ask the children to sing it to you at home?

Sharing homework in Year 3, by Miss Jones

Date: 1st Feb 2019 @ 9:00pm

Year 3 have been very busy at home over the past 2 weeks. As part of our English text, Escape from pompeii, the children had to research the events in Pompeii, 79AD. Children used the internet, trips to the library, videos and even song lyrics to gather their information.  They then presented their research in a variety of ways.  We had lift the flap peters, posters made on the computer, leaflets with glossaries, speeches, story writing, fact files and PowerPoint presentations. It was brilliant to see the children use features that we have looked at in English and guided reading.
