CORE Kids Active Schools Week

Each morning this week we have joined a fitness zoom hosted by Core NI. Today we had a teacher and student challenge. Ms Browne, Mrs Boreland and Miss Rennie tried so hard but we think the Year 3's and Mrs Mack's boys and girls beat them.

3OB/RH have been learning coding!

In our computing lessons and in our outdoor learning we have been having fun learning to programme little robots called Beebots. Our challenge was to programme our Beebots with enough moves to go from one point across the mat and finish at another set point. Easier said than done! All our Beebots got quite close to their target destination! We had so much fun seeing if our Beebots would end up going in the direction we wanted them to go.

Year 3 Bring Characters to Life

Year 3 worked together in literacy today. We read the story 'The Pirates Next Door'. We looked at the character of Jim Lad from the book and talked about what sort of character he was. Then, we worked together to draw our version of Jim Lad. Using the iPads we took a picture of our drawing and used a clever little App called ChatterPix to bring our drawing to life. We even recorded our voices saying something Jim Lad might say and the app used it to make Jim Lad 'talk'! So clever!

Y3OB/RH have been very creative this week.

Year 3 OBRH have been very busy this week creating all sorts of models and structures in class. We have had fun making dams from Lego and wooden blocks linked to our Splish, Splash, Splosh topic. We have also made boats from recyclable materials which have been fantastic. Finally, we have worked together as a class to create a giant owl from cardboard and other recyclable materials for the Ballymoney Show. Make sure you pay him a visit at the show this weekend!

P3 OB/RH Hold Interviews To Be Pirates

P3 OB/RH Hold Interviews To Be Pirates

In Year 3 OB/RH we held interviews to apply for a job as a pirate. We thought about what skills and talents we had that would make us the best candidate for the role. Some of us had certificates for swimming, so we wouldn't be bothered if we had to walk the plank or dive into the water to chase a shark. Others had experience on the rugby field or football pitch, so were experts at running, tackling and kicking... all very handy transferable skills in the pirate world. We thought about how we could sound persuasive and convincing in our letters. Everyone produced wonderful writing outcomes and it will be a very tough decision for Captain Rotten Teeth to know who he should hire!

Y3OB/RH Hot Seating

This week we have been reading "Class Three All At Sea" by Julia Jarman and learning about characters in stories. We used a technique called hot seating where the children sit on the hot seat and get into role as a character from the book. They answered lots of really great questions from their friends as the character Captain Rotten Teeth or as the magical octopus from the story and had such fun in the process.
