Oh yes we did!

Friday 13th December | 4 comments

To conclude our English work on traditional tales, we went on a fantastic trip to the City Varieties in Leeds to watch Little Red Riding Hood. Despite a challenging start to the trip, with icy pavements, a cancelled train and a train too full to take us, we finally made it (just in time) with the help of Mrs Hawkhead and Mr Wilson! We absolutely loved the theatre and couldn’t believe the talent of the actor/musican/singers! We spent the entire performance sat on the edge of our seats, having lots of fun joining in the songs and pantomime chants. As 3C headed back to school on the mini buses, 3E ventured to Leeds Station where we met a rail safety officer who helped us board one of the fancy new trains back to New Pudsey. We were all incredibly sensible and did an exceptional job of representing Farsley Farfield. We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the parent volunteers, without whom the trip would not be possible!

In Science, we have been carrying out our own investigations to test which materials would make the best pair of sunglasses for Mr Harris’ next holiday. We discussed whether the materials were transparent, translucent or opaque and why the would/would not make good sunglasses. We were hoping that the tinsel would be the winner as they would make a jazzy addition to a holiday outfit however thinking practically, we decided that a dish cloth and bubble wrap would be best!

We finished our PE units for this half term with a brilliant performance from 3E. They have spent the last 6 weeks working with a dance coach to improve their travelling skills, movement and create a routine. Check out our final performance!

Homework for this week is a sheet of word problems linking to our work on multiplication. Please make use of TimesTable Rockstars to improve recall speed of the multiplication tables.

A letter has gone home today about our Christmas party next Thursday – please have a look at the items you have been asked to bring.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Ellis, Miss Chambers and the Year 3 Team.

    Well done to all the staff especially Mrs Hawkhead and Mr Wilson for ensuring all the children made it to the theatre! And a big well done to all the children for their patience and excellent behaviour whilst we were out. You are all a credit to Farsley Farfield.

    The sunglasses are amazing! I hope Mr Harris puts them to good use on his next holiday! The dance routine was fantastic- everyone was so well co-ordinated – brilliant. Theo really enjoyed the pantomime- thank you to those who made it happen despite the transport challenges!

      If only we could all have a pair like it for the summer! The children have really thrown themselves into our dance work this term – we were all so pleased with the final routine.
