Welcome to Mrs Longhurst’s Class
Welcome to Year 3. Please take some time to look around, and remember to keep checking back to see what we have been up to. Please feel free to follow and add comments to our class blog. We appreciate your thoughts.
As part of the Year 3′s literacy module on giving instructions, the class were able to make use of the ‘Book Creator’ app on the iPads to create their own step-by-step guide to making a variety of items.
Lucas, Lucy, Connor and Maisie told us how to decorate a Christmas tree.
Riley, James, Poppy and Scarlett wrote how to make a ham sandwich. Well… they originally started on how to make a bacon sandwich and Miss Longhurst had to break it to them that they couldn’t have a frying pan in class.
Chloe-Anne, Jayden, Olivia and Poppy elected to demonstrate how to brush their teeth.
Lucie, Madelaine, Jacob and Charlie enjoyed making their Christingles so much last week that that’s what they chose to show us how to make. I have a sneaky feeling though that Jacob helped himself to a couple of the jelly tots.
Finally Alice, Ethan, Sienna, Callum and Lily-May went for the fairly more original option of how to make a shrinking potion. Apparently all it takes is (See top right of the image).
The group did try out their new potion on Mr Brown who now feels a lot more like 5ft11 instead of 6ft.
For the second year, our school has raised money for the People’s Kitchen in Gateshead through our Millennium Centre soup kitchen. In October, our school council visited the Millennium Centre and served soup to local residents – soup that had been prepared and made in school by after school club and some of the classes using vegetables from our school garden, and donations from the allotment holders and our friends around the village. It was a real community effort, and Mr Baker – a former teacher at the school – came to school today to collect the money on behalf of the charity. He assured us that the money would be put to good use, and for the second time in a day, we had helped others, and made ourselves feel good in the process – another huge drop in the bucket for everyone!
