On Friday 23rd November we went back to the 1940’s for the day! We used old Sharrow school records to help us choose a 1940’s name and spent the day as a 1940’s Sheffield child. We talked about and drew artefacts, played 1940’s games, built air raid shelters out of crates and junk modelling and even spent time in a bombed building!
Cartoon Workshop at Highfield Library
Year 3 visited Highfield Library to take part in a cartoon workshop. The children enjoyed drawing cartoon characters that were as weird and creative as possible. They then developed them into a comic strip. The children thoroughly enjoyed going to the library, even if we got a bit wet walking in the rain.
The Y3s went to Ecclesall Woods on a rainy Autumn Day. We looked for acorns, conkers and all sorts of woodland treasures. We had our lunch around a wood-burning stove to keep us nice and warm. Although we all got soaking wet, we had a great day out!
As part of the ‘My City: Sheffield’ topic, Y3s visited Kelham Island to learn about the growth of the steel city through the Victorian Era and two world wars. The children had a great time and wrote leaflets all about Kelham Island when they got back to school.
Residential at Castleton
Year 3 went on Residential to Castleton. We stayed for 2 nights. We walked into Castleton and up Cavedale. We walked up to Peak cavern and then walked back through the fields to the Youth Hostel. The next day we walked part of the way to Hope along the river bank. We had a fantastic time!
Science Week 2018
Y3 enjoyed our trip to Eyam in the Peak district. We had so much fun even though the weather wasn’t great all day! The children loved our walk up to the Boundary Stone, museum and church, learning about how the village helped to stop the spread of the plague.
Food Heaven - with Hallam University
Some of our Year 3 children have been taking part in a Food workshop with Hallam University students every week. Their final session was held at the Owen Building in the University kitchens where they made fruit kebabs and hummus. At the end of the session the children were presented with certificates for taking part. The children have thoroughly enjoyed all the sessions. Thank you Hallam University.
