We are Musicians!

During this half term, children in Year 3 have been learning to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Ode to Joy. We were assessed playing using good rhythm, pitch and technique. We are musicians!

Here are some samples of us playing.

We are Performers!

This year the children performed an exciting twist on the classic Nativity. Taking inspiration from Strictly Come Dancing, the children gave a wonderful retelling of the birth of Jesus Christ through dances and interviews. Lights, Camel, Action! excited children and they worked well together.

We are Musicians!

We have been studying African music, thinking about how it makes us feel. It certainly got us up on our feet!

We then performed our own version of 'Siyahamba', which is a South African hymn and it mean 'We Are Marching'.

The children then performed to Year 4 who evaluated their performance. They were very impressed!

We are Historians!

This term we have been studying the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and the Neolithic periods of the Stone Age and the Bronze and Iron Ages. Children have researched and studied different tools and how they have contributed to the survival of the early humans. We have visited Touchstone Museum in Rochdale, with tools that we have created, to have them critiqued by a real archaeologist. We have really enjoyed learning all about the prehistoric periods of human history!
