Y3 @ The Winter Gardens

We went to the winter gardens to look at the layers of the rainforest. We used our sketching skills to create sketches of the plants and turn them  in to an art explosion

Cyborg Cat and the Night Spider

We have been lucky enough to partner up with a book publisher in London that have sent us 40 copies of Ade Adepitan’s new book: Cyborg Cat and the Night Spider. Next week, we will be reading the book in our classes with buddies to discover how he overcame adversity. Our children are considering their own ‘SMART goals’ in life and how they can achieve them.

After receiving videos of us enjoying his book, Ade sent us a video! Check out our facebook page to see it. Thanks, Ade!

Stones and Bones

Year 3 had an amazing time at the Great North Museum. The best part was handling the artefacts that the archaeologist, who delivered the session, dug up herself! Did you know that
Bronze Age swords weren’t used to hunt? They were actually a sign of wealth!
Great news – together, we were longer than Dippy.

Google Internet Legends

The internet is wonderful! I sometimes wonder what we did without it! However, it can also be very concerning and children and adults need to learn how to stay safe online. We invited The Google Education Team into our school assembly today to learn very important lessons about staying safe online.

The Year 3 pupils learned 5 important lessons:

Be internet sharp and think before you share. Know what’s okay to share and what’s not.

Be internet alert and check it’s for real. Spot the clues for what’s real, fake or a scam online.

Be internet secure and protect your stuff. Learn how to create strong passwords.

Be internet kind and respect each other. Understand what it means to be kind online and respect other people’s privacy.

Be internet brave and when in doubt, discuss. Ask for help from a parent or trusted adult with tricky situations online.

 

At East Boldon Juniors, we want our children to love using the internet safely! At the end of today’s session, the children pledged to stay safe online by following the five rules above.

Cake and a cuppa

We raised over £600 for Macmillan Cancer Support this morning and we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you very much for your contributions towards the vast array of sweet treats and for your generous donations. This afternoon, the raffle was drawn by pupils in
assembly and the teaching staff were very upset not to win anything! Winners have been contacted by staff at home time today or by telephone. It was fantastic to see the hall packed
with so many families once again. Thank you for your support for the school and Macmillan.
