Class 3 assembly
Class 3 present The Surprising Stone Age! Well done to all of Class 3 for delivering an exciting and interesting assembly. The children delivered facts, compared our lifestyles to that of a stone age family, sang a stone age version of ‘We will rock you’ and recited a prayer. Thank you to all parents’ and carers’ for attending.
Beamish Museum Visit
Class 3 enjoyed their Beamish Museum Visit on Wednesday 9th March. The children took part in a variety of activities in the museum. The children took part in a ‘clean up’ activity on the morning where they had to carry out jobs in the home. They cleaned the floor, made up the beds, cleaned the pots and pans and emptied the bed pans. After lunch, the children enjoyed a trip down the mine to experience what life would have been like as a coal miner and the conditions they had to work in. After that, the groups walked around the pit village, colliery and some children went on a tram.
Heritage England Project
In Class 3 this half term we have been exploring local mining in our area. The children have been researching, writing and finding out lots of interesting information about mining and the significance it has to our local area.
We have been working closely with Debra Nichol from the Auckland Castle Project and she has been helping us to get our Heritage Schools England Award. The children have been looking at the life of a miner and how life is different back then to today. We have been working on our map skills and looking at how our local area of West Auckland has changed over a period of 100 years.
Some of the children were amazed to find that their street names were over 100 years old. The children have also been investigating old census records from 100 years ago to see who may have lived in the houses in our local area and what their occupations/jobs may have been.
At the end of the half term the school will be entered to get their Heritage Schools England award and it will be presented in a celebration assembly next half term.
