In RE we have been learning about how Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah. We all tried potato cakes and played dreidel.
Year 3 went to a very famous place and we went to Gallery Oldham. First our coach came to pick us up and everybody was ready to go to Gallery Oldham.
Next we got there and Thorp and Baretrees were very excited. After that we went in and two very kind ladies showed us around Gallery Oldham. Then we did two activities with Baretrees and we had so much fun.
After that we went to Alexandra park with Baretrees and had our lunch in a very big place and our lunch was really nice. Then we played on the playground.
On Tuesday 11th June Year 3 went on a trip to Baretrees school. Year 3 Thorp children were so excited. When we got there we got so nicely welcomed by Baretrees. After we got put in groups we went to go and sit down with Baretrees. Half of us went in the big hall and the rest of us went in the small hall. Next we changed halls and did more activities. We were exhausted! When we had dinner we sat in the small hall.
In the afternoon we talked about two different religions, Islam and Christianity. We hope year 3 Baretrees enjoyed it.

On the 19 of June on a Wednesday afternoon year 3 went to the Bridge water Hall. Year 3 were so excited to go and play with one of the most famous orchestras in the world. We played the Blue Danube, the Ran Can Can and sung One Step on the Moon and Galactic Groove. The hall was beautiful. It was full with light and joy.
Year 3 were so happy to be there and we had so much fun. I can’t wait to go and perform again!
This week in school we did design technology linked to our history learning about the Wright brothers first aircraft flight in 1903. We all made our own moving picture using a slider mechanism. If was a bit tricky in places but everyone got a final picture they were proud of!
They were all so fabulous we couldn’t decide whose should go on the website! Ask us about them
On Monday, we dodged the showers and managed to do some fieldwork in the school grounds. Our Science topic is ‘Living things and their habitats’ so we investigated what living things we could find. We found lots of plants, trees and minibeasts. We used good observational skills to locate the living things and we used an identification sheet to help us to name what we found. We all had fun!
Year 1 had a fantastic day at the Visitor Runway Park at Manchester Airport on Monday. We learnt all about the different jobs that people do at the airport and took the controls on the flight deck to take off and land an aeroplane on imaginary journeys.
We saw the fastest aeroplane in the world, Concorde, but just missed seeing the biggest aeroplane in the world as it landed 15 minutes early!
