‘No pens’ maths in 3JW

Who needs pens when you can use paint to complete a data handling activity. We really enjoyed using the information off a tally/frequency chart to create our own chart with paint. We could even answer the questions with paint. It was great!





Volcanoes and plate tectonics

Whilst learning about volcanoes in year 3, we talked about plate tectonics and magma and the impact of living near a volcano. We rubbed our hands together to show how the plates work – they got very warm!!!





3JW Vloggers

The children have been creating amazing presentations on volcanoes. They are going to turn the presentations into vlogs. Ask your child to log into google to share their work with you.





Acting up in R.E. (3JW)

In the lead up to Easter, we will be looking at different parts of the Easter story, and generating big questions through drama. Today we told the story of 'The Last Supper', using the art of Davinci and then creating a freeze-frame. Children then wrote questions that they would like to ask Jesus and his disciples.


The children came up with some really thought-provoking questions, wanting to know how the disciples felt when Jesus said that one of them would betray him, and also quizzing Judas on why he was going to betray his master.


Mother’s Day Poster/Poem Competition (MYMN).

As part of our positive and ongoing relationships with our Muslim neighbours, the children in our school were invited to take part in a Mother's Day poster competition with other primary schools in St Helens. On Saturday 10th March, our children who were winners in the competition were invited to a presentation event to be awarded with a medal for their hard work.


Lots of our children attended the event with parents and Mrs Ireland and Mrs Whalley went along too.

The children enjoyed lots of amazing activities during the afternoon, including henna tattoos, Islamic art and Islamic writing. Some tried on a hijab and were given one as a gift to take home.
Our Muslim neighbours talked about the importance of mothers, and being part of a loving family.
The children then shared their experience in our school Assembly on Monday.

It was an amazing event to be a part of and we are extremely grateful to our Muslim neighbours for their hospitality.
