Jubilee themed Art and Computing

Year 3 enjoyed wearing a crown and pretending to be a Queen or King.

We uploaded the photos and children learnt to edit them, did they make themselves look like the lived in 1952? Could they be a future Queen or King?

Editing photos is regularly done in 2022, we discussed how images can be easilly altered. We also ensured that we had permission before editing anyone else's photos.

Year 3 School Visit to Stockport Museum & Air Raid Shelter

Year 3 have had a fabulous day visiting the Stockport Museum and the Stockport Aid Raid Shelter. We all dressed as an evacuee and really felt like we were living in WW2 as we experienced what it was like to go into the Stockport Aid Raid Shelter. In The Air Raid Shelter children saw the conditions people had to be in during WW2. 

Within the museum children went into a Morrison shelter, tried on gas mask and war helmets which they really did enjoy.

If you are in Stockport it is really worth visiting The Air Raid Shelter.

WW2- wonderful learning by Year 3

Year 3 have started learning all about WW2. Children have learnt a WW2 poem ready to perform in a school assembly. They have been reading and writing diaries including looking at Anne Frank's diary and reading a class novel Carrie's War.

The seeds planted during Science week have grown so they've been put into larger pots. Year 3 really are doing what people did during WW2 because we are growing our own vegetables including carrots, potatoes and also peas.
