Monday 8th June - Here are some of us talking about friendship in a P4C (Philosophy for Children) session as part of our Relationships education. We were considering statements about friendship and deciding whether we agreed or disagreed with them. We shared some interesting thoughts.
A busy Monday of health Week included the challenge of the climbing wall!
What a start to our Health Week with an outside 'Wake Up and Shake Up' led by Liam at Excel martial arts. The children were incredibly enthusiastic and inspired to exercise!

Have a look below at the photos from our magnets workshop, run by university students Samson and Fran. During the session the children explored magnetic materials, learned about the terms 'repel and attract' and even explored making a motor. The children gained an understanding of the varied uses of magnets in the wider world and we are looking forward to completing some follow up learning on this interesting topic.
Y3 Banyan continue to improve their swimming skills every Tuesday. Congratulations to Grace and Sophie who have both been awarded 'swimmer of the week'. Well done especially to Sophie who has been awarded the title twice!
Greek Culture Morning
Today, 16th April, Helen and Dennis from the Greedy Greek Deli visited Y3 to help us find out more about Greece. Our morning included, learning the Greek language, discovering more about the Gods, Greek dancing and even looking at traditional Greek clothing. We were also lucky enough to try some authentic Greek food which included meat balls, spinach pies, falafels and humous. Efharisto to the Greedy Greek Deli for a fun and exciting morning. A special 'Yiamas!' to Mr Walker for being a good sport!
