Year Three

Welcome to Year Three!

Check out what we have been up to so far this year.  We can also look back over your previous year at Woodthorpe Primary.

Magpie - Buried Treasure Scavenger Hunt

Today in topic we completed a scavenger hunt. We put into partners and given a sheet of clues. We had to go into the playground and find the number which related to each clue. The first team to get all the clues were the scavenger hunt champions!

2AT Planting Our Seeds

Planting Our Seeds 
Last week in 2AT, we planted some bean and sunflower seeds. We estimated how tall they would grow over 3 weeks. Today was our first day to measure how tall they have grown and our tallest sunflower is 10cm already! 

Year 2 Visit to the Deep

For our 'Under the Sea' topic launch we visited The Deep in Hull. When we arrived we took part in an animal habitat workshop. We discovered about different animals from under the sea and the seaside, their characterisitcs and where they live. We then went into the deep to explore. Our highlights were seeing a stingray swim over our heads in the tunnel, the penguins diving in their pool and watching sharks! After being inspired by the different animals our learning will be based around the children's interests.

All the children loved seeing all the different animals under the sea - 'It was the the best trip ever!' (Ava, 2HS).

Year 2 had a very informative visit from a local PCSO. We discussed important information about how to stay safe and what to do in different situations. We then had the chance to ask her questions about her job and we really enjoyed this. The PSCO kindly left us with some Police questions, activities and games to do!

We really enjoyed Culture week and learning all about the African Culture. We had a taste of African food, baking banana cakes and we thought it was yummy!  We also learnt about African animals and the ‘Big Five’. We found out that only male lions have a mane and chimpanzees live in both wet and dry forests.

Studying African Masks and their meaning was extremely powerful for us and we wanted to create our own with their own meaning. We made some fantastic masks which symbolised ‘helping others’, ‘respect’, ‘keeping healthy’ and ‘being kind’.


Taking part in African animal yoga has really improved our balance. We learnt all sorts of different yoga positions but our favourite was the lion because we got to roar!


Finally, we were so inspired by a performance of Bollywood dancing that we learnt our own routine! We had so much fun!
